[   ] THE OPRAH POLL ON ADHD
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

On June 15, Oprah Winfrey had a program about
ADD / ADHD. Although diet as a possible treatment
was not mentioned on the show, she placed it as a
choice in a poll on what you would do if your child was
diagnosed with ADHD.

You can see the poll and vote on page
http://www.oprah.com/tows/pastshows/tows_past_20000615.html
[or see below for detailed directions]

Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the link for the
poll. When you vote, you will see the results of all the votes
until now. Today's (July 5percentages are:

Change their diet 26.30%
Counseling 19.01%
Medication 17.52%
Get a second opinion 16.95%
Nothing 10.19%
Other 10.04%

We hope that Oprah's producers use such
polls to determine the content of future shows.

[   ] PARENT TRAINING & INFORMATION CENTERS
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Parents whose children need special educational
accommodations frequently do not know where to
get help and advice - or even that it is available. If you
are not happy with the services your child receives, or
if you wonder whether something better may be
possible for your child's coming school year, speak to
a parent advocate now. This is a free service. See
them listed at http://www.npnd.org/PTIs.htm
