ADD Aspergers Anxiety Psychologist

:00

this is a very serious disorder this is not some trivial little

0:05

fly by night disorder

0:07

and also emphasize something that i don't think it's emphasized enough

0:11

especially by other advocates

0:13

eighty-eight years no gift

0:15

there is no evidence in any research fund any of hundreds of measures that we

0:19

have taken that show the dvd predisposes us to anything positive

0:24

in human life now let's be clear

0:27

eighty excuse but a small steps of the hundreds of psychological abilities that

0:31

people will have

0:33

and many people may be gifted and talented in various aspects of these

0:37

other

0:39

truman abilities

0:40

but never attribute that gifted nis

0:43

or that success to the a_t_t_ itself there is a profound tendency in the u_s_

0:47

right now for advocates

0:49

to roll everything about the patient

0:52

under the tent of their immediate scheme to use it to account for everything

0:56

so that michael phelps one eight gold medal olympics because he was in the

0:59

extreme

1:00

and the owner of jet blue is a successful entrepreneur

1:03

when an airline because it was a dat

1:05

and howie mandell and deal or no deal is a successful comic turn

1:09

game show host

1:11

because it has a p_h_d_ anti pennington on extreme home makeover

1:15

is very successful at destroying a rebuilding houses

1:19

four other charitable purposes

1:21

because as a teaching none of this is true at all

1:24

these people are successful because they have other attributes in which they are

1:27

gifted

1:28

but in no way does eighty h_d_ predisposed to any of the things that i

1:31

have mentioned if so we would have seen it

1:34

so i'd want people to understand that while people may be gifted and talented

1:39

and successful

1:41

inspite of their eighty peachtree

1:43

it is not because

1:46

varity p_h_d_

1:47

the a_t_t_ itself they in fact make you less effective than what other people

1:52

who has a equally talented areas in those human abilities

1:57

nobody's done that comparison

1:58

but uh... it's going to be very hard for society to take you all seriously

2:03

if you continue to trumpet this disorder as a gift

2:06

there is no way that we can go to ottawa and walk the halls of parliament

2:10

arguing for accommodations

2:13

entitlements

2:14

funding the radiation medications on the one hand

2:17

while rob roch hearing eighty eight fifty

2:20

as this wonderful gift ideas that we have and you don't they are going to set

2:25

a call to each other

2:26

and it doesn't work

2:27

and its allies

2:29

so let's not deceiving people about this this is a real disorder is a very

2:33

serious disorder

2:35

but it doesn't mean you may not be talented and many other areas of life

2:38

and that you can use those areas of talent to compensate

2:42

for the disadvantages that any dhtml be producing

2:46

but success is not attributable to a_t_t_ nodding any of the hundreds of

2:51

studies have been done to date

2:53

so i'm asking for clarification on this issue

2:56

not saying that people can succeed with this disorder but it will be there in

3:00

the eighties across that
