    Hi,

    Here is an opportunity to influence mental health services in your country. A Canadian doctor - Kenny Handelman in his blog http://addadhdblog.com brings our attention to this below

    in my humble opinion his blog is informative on the medication treatments. In the behavior management side he is pretty much behaviorist- Barkley , so I present there an alternative. Recently he did a article on ' awards for ADHD kids ' . I responded questioning the value of awards that highlight the disability, a kid is more than a diagnosis, the negative effects of competitions , being a winner / loser on the love of learning.

    Thank you Allan-
    Very important for Canada. We just had more funding cut for mental health here in Idaho... sad state of affairs.
    I see a huge impact (negative) on my 5 yo in regards to competition, we have been working on alternatives for 2 years now. She becomes so upset and focused on what others will think and how she will do. What will the outcome be??? It is unfortunately a reality when she enters public school I fear.
