Frontline also gives ADHD a human face. Some doctors, teachers, and parents may be too quick to medicate children. Others may actually be too slow. The issue—finally—isn’t really about pharmaceuticals, protesters, or even about whether or not to medicate. Instead, the issue centers on how to help individual children with ADHD function effectively and successfully in our
Shanna L. Cannoy Professor Sarah Lupinacci English 102 26 July 2011 The Effective Use of Medication is Needed for Controlling ADHD Symptoms in Children When parents have children with a health issue such as diabetes medication is sometimes necessary to control the disease. While ADHD is a mentally debilitating disorder, many people including some parents of their own children, with ADHD, will not help their child by the use of medication. It is a parent’s job to do everything possible to ensure their child’s ability to succeed with their best interest in mind. Why would a parent deny their children a sufficient way to survive better socially, academically, and emotionally when the option is present to help them do so? Robert Findling says it best with his question ‘‘Why would you want to let a child suﬀer unnecessarily?’’ ( qtd.

Implanting electrodes in pleasure centers of newly born infants is not considered to me. Using electrodes to soothe a crying baby would be wrong. DBS study has not yet reached the point to be safe
This is why, most home health programs have standard health protocols, plans of care, interventions and routine evaluation measures to assist people suffering from moderate and severe dementia of late onset. But early onset Alzheimer’s disease affects people who are most likely young, employed, physically robust, sexually active and who have different leisure interests than their elder peers. Chaston D. (2010) suggests that: “numerous barriers continue to prevent younger adults with dementia accessing support and services. Their voices are not heard and their needs overlooked, often because nurses and other health professionals fail to recognise that dementia exists in this age group.” So, to make sure young individuals affected by dementia get the home care they need, “Care for memories initiative’s” focus is to create a comprehensive home care program for families whose first degree relative has been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease. Within this program, where the expertise of various professionals will be required, people suffering from early onset Alzheimer’s disease will be followed up regularly and according to their needs.
DMDD is characterized by severe as well as extreme recurrent temper tantrums that are so intense in proportion, and duration of the situation, on average they occur three or more times per year. Children with DMDD are persistent in displaying irritable or angry moods between outbursts on a daily basis. Parents, teachers, and peers may routinely observe this behavior. For diagnostic purposes it requires that these symptoms be present in at least two of these settings, at home, at school, or with peers for 12 or more months, and symptoms must be severe in at least one of these settings. During this period, the child must not have gone three or more consecutive months without symptoms (AACAP, 2013).
Pregnant Addicts 1 Pregnant drug addicts should be prosecuted because when using drugs while pregnant can cause birth defect, behavioral problems, and addiction. Using drugs not only harms the baby it also harms the carrier. Hundreds of babies are affected each year, because their parents chose to use while being pregnant. Birth Defects: Babies that are subjected to drugs have a higher rate of being born with a birth defect. Birth Defects enable the child to be fully developed.
If they have completed their primary four dose series, but have not had a dose within the last three years, they should be given a booster dose. Children younger than 6 months are at particular risk because even with vaccination, protection is incomplete. Since cases of pertussis have been on the rise and reported in teens and adults, because their immunity has faded since their original vaccination. Individuals should be noticed of a booster shot to prevent the further spread of pertussis, especially to infants who have greater complications to pertussis and can lead to their demise if not treated on
Robyn believes that medication can be helpful, but she does give valid points about how it is over used. There is no one true norm for a human mind. By changing how the brain acts just to mask the troubled area, doesn’t help to find the root of the problem. Sarah says in her paper that pain (a problem) in our life is a response to our life. When experiencing “pain”, one reassesses and rebuilds, or takes a pill to cover it up.
