C-445: Attention Deficit Disorder

Stephen was 11 years old when referred to Kentuckiana. He had been previously diagnosed by a psychologist as a hyperactive child with Attention Deficit Disorder. And he had repeated the second grade in a parochial school.

The Center's outpatient clinic provided a comprehensive evaluation which revealed several functional disorders. The professional services included spinal adjustments to reduce a seven millimeter atlas subluxation, visual therapy to improve a perceptual disorder, nutritional supplements to ameliorate a carbohydrate metabolistic disorder and a special education program to enhance his academic ability.

For 2 years Stephen attended the Kentuckiana special education program. Mrs. Roberta Davis, its Director, states, "In addition to his academic improvements during this time, Stephen's self-esteem improved and he developed a desire to return to the public school system and put forth the effort needed to succeed." Incidentally, this happened without the need for Ritalin.

Today, Stephen continues in a public school program where he started out in a behavioral modification program. Recently his mother wrote us, "Stephen has continued to do well in his regular Math and Reading classes. This week a regular science class is to be added. He has also been accepted into the Shawnee H. S. Aviation Program. We've come such a long . . . We will always be grateful for all that Kentuckiana has done for us."
