IMPORTANT FACTS

1 In 1879, German psychologist


Wilhelm Wundt declared Man to be
an animal, with no soul. With this,
he laid the foundation for modern

2
psychology and psychiatry.

In the U.S. and elsewhere, strong


and effective scholastic-based
systems were compromised.
Psychologist Edward Lee Thorndike
said phonics, multiplication tables

3
and formal writing were wasteful.

In the 1940s psychiatrists G.


Brock Chisholm (Canada) and John
Rawlings Rees (Britain), co-founders
of the World Federation for Mental
Health, said, psychiatrists had
carried out a useful attack on the
teaching profession and that the
goal of effective therapy was the
elimination of the concept of
right and wrong.

4 By the 1960s (and ever since),


psychological programs were
introduced into schools.
Psychiatrists claimed that three
sources of stress had to be
eliminated from schools:
1) school failure, 2) a curriculum
centered around academics, and
3) disciplinary procedures.

5 Psychologists and psychiatrists


have insinuated themselves into
positions of authority in the
educational field and completed
an almost total overthrow of the
subject, turning schools from
places of learning into mental
health clinics.

IMPORTANT FACTS

1 Parents and teachers are not


informed that Attention Deficit

not a neurobiological disorder as
psychiatrists claim. There is nothing
neurological, biological, chemically

2
imbalanced or genetic about it.

The Food and Drug Administration


and other drug regulatory bodies
warn that stimulants prescribed for
ADHD cause strokes, heart attacks
and death. It is a public crisis says
a leading cardiologist.

3 In 1952, the American Psychiatric


Associations (APA) Diagnostic
& Statistical Manual of Mental
Disorders (DSM) contained only
three disorders for infants or
children. Today, there is a nearly
ten-fold increase in the number of
child disorders.

4 In 1987, Attention Deficit


Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
was literally voted into existence
by APA committee members and
enshrined in the DSM. Within a
year, 500,000 children in the U.S.
alone were diagnosed with it.

5 More than 20 million schoolchildren


worldwide have now been
diagnosed with so-called mental
disorders and prescribed cocaine-
like stimulants and powerful
antidepressants as treatment.

The creation of bogus learning disorders


as listed in psychiatrys Diagnostic and

millions of children at great profit.

RECOMMENDATIONS
Recommendations

1 You have the right to refuse permission for your child to be subjected
to any psychological or psychiatric questionnaire, test or evaluation in
school. Ensure you place your child in a school that supports this.

2 If your child has been subjected to psychological/psychiatric


screening without your consent, or coercively drugged and harmed,
consult a lawyer to determine your right to prosecute criminally and
civilly, especially against the authors of the questionnaires and, if
psychologists or psychiatrists, their colleges and associations.

3 Speak out be your childs voice. Start or join a parents group


that can speak out about the wrongful labeling and drugging of our
children and provide support for each other.

4 Support legislative measures that will protect children from


psychiatric and psychological interference and which will remove
their destructive influence from our schools.

5 Ultimately, psychiatry and psychology must be eliminated from all


education systems and their coercive and unworkable methods should
not be funded by the State.
