It's sad that some would want to cure a brain like that.

Great story!

You can't cure it now. Prevention would help. But SO WHAT a smart kid, lots of them around. Probably shouldn't be considered ADHD, but Pharma loves it, another person to sell pills to. Yeah, a great story if you're an uncaring provac, or you're ORAC, Brian Deer or Paul Offit. They'll be claiming this kid was part of a planned master race that vaccines are creating.

Looks to me that if anything, vaccines made this kid smarter than you. Vaccines certainly didn't kill him. And of course you're assuming he's on medication.

How can you make the judgement that he probably shouldn't be considered ADHD? There are plenty of smart people with ADHD, and some can even manage to do well in school despite difficulties(especially if the class is something they're interested in). If he was that set on taking a college class, then Chemistry(or some aspect of it) might even be his obsessive special interest that is a characteristic of ASD. Abnormally focused interests can be great things. So what if an autistic person isn't "well rounded"? If given the chance, a lot of autistic people could make great contributions to the field they are interested in(and I think that this is true with a lot of people of all functioning levels... That is, if they were given a chance, a suitable environment to work in, and the supports they need).

He did say that he had problems with organization. If he's anything like me, then that(or only being interested in parts of the course and not others as much, or not getting homework done...) is likely the reason that he has a B instead of an A.

You're mistaken. No one listens to your rants about Pharma, and how you twist every article into a vaccine topic.
You simply fail to be able or willing to acknowledge the accomplishments of a child with a disability because it goes against your thinking any accomplishments of a disabled person shouldn't be celebrated for their fine abilities that go beyond typical-abled people.

Has nothing to do with comprehension. No one listens to you. So if they didn't listent o begin with, why would they start now?

So ASDs are overdiagnosed to sell pills? Meaning the ASD diagnosis rates you rant about aren't accurate?

I have not ranted about ASDs dufus. I'm pointing out how Pharma gets to double dip by causing spectrum disorders and then treating them.

Go ahead and live drug free. Watch where it get's you. But that too is still an individual's choice.

That's right, your main rants are vaccines. Pharma and anything they do is second.
