In order to graduate high school in my wonderful school district  , we have to write a paper and give a presentation in front of a panel. I did my paper in tenth grade now all I have to do is add/delete some things. The topic of my paper is ADD/ADHD and Ritalin. I met with my advisor and she says I need an interview with one of these four:
     1. Someone on Ritalin or with ADD/ADHD
     2. The parent of such a person
     3. The friend of such a person
     4. A pediatrician with some opinion
If anyone here meets that criteria and would be willing to take part in a simple interview that would help me a great deal, will you please respond here or email me at:
     SusieQ845@cs.com or LittleOne845@cs.com
The questions will be simple such as:
     1. How old is this person?
     2. Are they on Ritalin?
     3. If so, what are the noticeable differences
     with and without the drug?
     4. What else is being done to help the child,
     if anything?
     5. Do you believe Ritalin is overprescribed?
Thanks ahead of time guys  . Hopefully someone can help me out.

I've forwarded this link to a few people whom I believe fit some criteria and could provide their opinions Susie ... hopefully they'll get a chance to review the link and contact you.

From my understanding, it WAY over prescribed ... wise in proper situations, but abused in others (but my information is only heresay). Hope you get some more leads. Good luck!    

Best wishes,
/Kit

It's handed out WAY WAY WAY to much.
If a child acts like a child, they're given drugs.
Unless they sit peacefully and silent, they have ADD or ADHD.
Drives me out of my mind.

Thanks for all your help  .

Irie,
I completely agree. Some of the number are staggering.

Thanks again for all your help  .

Were you able to find what you needed Angel? If so, maybe you could post it here - a good way to reach other people!
