THE OHIO COUNTY TIMES, HARTFuKta, KENTUCKY, MAY 5~ 1977, SECTION 2 PAGE 3 It By Helen F. Andrew, M.S., Health Educator Hyperactive Children / teams from Western Kentucky University took first place at the Southeastern Conference Intercollegiate Livestock EvaluationandJudg- at Virginia Tech University in Blackburg, Vs. Members of the Western team are, (seated left to right), AI Pedigo, Hendersonville, Tennessee; Edge, Ohio County, Lynn Graham, Bowling Green; Curtis A. Rexroat, Russell Springs; and Johnny Eubank, Gamaliel. Standing (left to right) are, of WKU, Dora G. Downing, Russell T. Goss, Waldwick, N.J.; Walter G. Haines, Greensburg; Stanley Boone, Leitchfield; Douglas E. Emerson, N.Y.; Phil Turner, Livermore; Richard M. Dyar, graduate assistant coach, Opelika, Alabama; and Dr. Gordon Jones, advisor of the livestock How does a parent decide whether a child is hyperactive? And if he is, what can be done about it? It is a subject on which even the experts do not agree but some useful data is emerging from their study of the problem. They are coming to feel that inability to concentrate isa more accurate sign than a high level of physical energy. The latter may be produced by a very active, excited mind which is perfectly normal. By contrast, the truly hyperactive child acts impulsively and without "focus" accomplishing little. Children who fidget in school may have a language problem rather than neurological one. Pediatricians are becoming more knowledgeable about various kinds of learning disability. If your child is having difficulty in concentrating, an evaluation and diagnosis by your pediatrician should be the first step. He may recommend a further evaluation by a team of psychiatric, neurological and learning disability specialists such as is available in large medical centers. On the other hand, a significant number of children have been helped by the removal of additives, especially artificial coloring and flavors, from their food. (See "The Feingold Association" next week). Melvin Levite, M.D:, writing in Redbook (October, 1976) warns against the indiscriminate use of drugs to quiet hyperactive children. He recommends careful evaulation first and only short-term drug use except in the most severe cases. Some of the problems associated with medication include the possibility of masking the underlying cause and adverse effects on appetite, sleep and behavior. Because of the possibility that they may retard growth, drugs are usually discon- tinued at adolescence. Dr. Levine believes that education is the most important part of the treatment for hyperactive children and urges parents to join forces in developing community awareness of the importance of providing special education classes in the public school system. --Dr. Levine is assistant professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and director of the Medical Outpatient Department at the Children's Hospital Medical Center in Boston. ...... t) 1976 as o community service of l~e Health Deparlment, General Con. feren(:e of Seventh-day Adventisl~,.
