Thread Name: ADHD- Ritalin
Subject: RE: ADHD- Ritalin
I am still waiting. Can anyone answer these questions?

"I have found it very difficult to teach new concepts to children who are taking Ritalin. Yes, it enables them to produce written work based on what they already know but when it comes to new info being assimilated - what studies have been done?"

I am also surprised to hear you say, "...treatment of ADHD with medication is replacing something that is missing in a child's brain."

Can you please tell me what is missing?

Is there a lab test that can measure this?
