The “People Power” Disability-Serious Illness-Senior Citizen Superbook Book 3. Disability in the Family (Parents & Children)
Everybody has disabled people somewhere in their family tree. Lots of people are born disabled due to genetic reasons or as the result of pregnancy complications. People get injured or acquire... More > debilitating diseases at some point in life. I've lived with both, a disabled relative and serious injuries of my own. The thing is that the world goes on. It doesn't slow down or stop just because someone is disabled. We can do so much politically and the rest we have to do on our own to fit into the world somehow in a useful, productive way to get the money we want to buy the things that will help us survive and enjoy our lives more. The best thing I ever saw about disabilities was the 1940s movie called Shaggy Bush which was a movie about a family going through ups and downs. There was a bit in there where the mother said her daughter's disability didn't mean she was doomed. It just meant that she would still do what she felt in her spirit with her life with this extra nuisance to deal with.< Less
The "People Power" Disability - Serious Illness - Senior Citizen Superbook: Book 6. Special Education 1 (Mentally & Physically Disabled Children At School, Autism)
There are several ways to have a limited ability to think:
Born that way by genetics as with Down's Syndrome.
Born that way by mother's bad habits as with fetal alcohol syndrome.
Get hit in the... More > head, traumatic brain injury, concussion.
Stress of life.
Substance abuse, prescription drugs that alter brain chemistry
Chemicals in ordinary objects like aspartame, lead, mercury, etc.
Self-delusion, people get depressed, think too much, etc.
My main purposes in writing this book are:
To find all the conventional knowledge about mental challenges as I could and centralize it here.
It is evident when a child is born with down syndrome or his or her performance seems slower than normal but everything else is someone's opinion as with autism spectrum disorders and learning disabilities. People who diagnose these so-called disorders have no specific test that can with certainty say they have this disorder therefore need this drug.< Less
The "People Power" Education Superbook: Book 43. Special Education 2 (Disabled Children At School, Learning Disabled People Go to College, Mentally Challenged Jobs)
They say your kid was born with this inherent brain defect but the truth is that some guy can't drill a hole into your kid's brain, take out a biopsy sample, do tests on it then say with absolute... More > certainty that he's stupid because of some organic, physiological defect in his brain.
That's why this special education field is at least partially a fraud. They make quick judgments based on no real knowledge of the child.
Your job is to help your child discover what they're good at and interested in so they can reach their full potential as individuals and possibly earn a living from what they do. You don't really need the school system with all its prejudice and faults to do this.
You have to get that brainwash out of your head that the school and the mental health experts have some divine knowledge laid in stone about the mental states of kids. They don't.
Take everything anybody says about your kid with a grain of salt.< Less

The "People Power" Education Superbook: Book 42. Special Education 1 (Mentally & Physically Disabled Children At School, Autism)
My main purpose in writing this book is to find all the conventional knowledge about mental challenges as I could and centralize it here.
It is evident when a child is born with down syndrome or his... More > or her performance seems slower than normal but everything else is someone's opinion as with autism spectrum disorders and learning disabilities. People who diagnose these so-called disorders have no specific test that can with certainty say they have this disorder therefore need this drug.
That's why you can't take it on face when some medical or mental health professional sits with your child for 40 minutes then tells you that he or she needs to go on ritalin or some other drug for the next x number of years.
No matter how you cut it, it's a profit-driven industry. The school gets extra money for every kid diagnosed as LD or special ed. The mental health people make money diagnosing and counselling these kids plus writing drug prescriptions. The drug companies make tons of money.< Less
