Helping ourselves and each other in seeking the truth to create a saner world
The following lists include Drs., and professionals in the medical field, Education resources and other groups in various countries that help our children with attention, behavior and learning problems (without, of course, mind-altering drugs). Also listed is Drug prevention and help, and further sources of reference.
Please note that these will be ever-expanding lists as more sources from across the globe are located. If you know of a source in your community, that you feel could be added to this list, then please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org For any country: If you are seeking a professional in the medical field to assist your child, I suggest you check your phone book or online for a medical practice that provides a similar service to The Block Center. Check that they have empathy with children that have symptoms of so-called “ADHD”, what experience they have had and success in treating them. Or, if your child is already on drugs for “ADHD”, that the professional has had experience in dealing with this problem, again with success in treating them. If you have a problem in locating a professional in the medical field, you could try contacting one or more of the many sources listed below to ask if they could recommend a medical practice in your country or local area (that provide a similar service to The Block Center). Seek and you will find :-) DRS., NUTRITIONISTS, and like Professionals in the medical field: Return to Menu

Psychiatric drugs drive some people into psychosis, mania, depression, suicide, agitation, compulsive violence and loss of self-control without the individuals realizing that their medications have deformed their way of thinking and feeling.”
Extracts from editorial reviews on Dr. DeMaria’s book by:
Dr. Bruce West, www.healthalert.com - “This user-friendly book has the potential of setting families free from the nightmare of ADD, ADHD, and ODD.

(Important: The following is written from my viewpoint to assist and protect the child, parent and education facility: I have not included the following list of contacts (under ‘Education Resources’) to service a child already diagnosed with "ADHD", (or similar), consuming a psychiatric, mind-altering drug (Ritalin® or similar). The reasoning for this is that, in my opinion, any respectable education facility would be unable to give any form of sound guidelines as regards a child’s future learning progress, due to the high risk of potential instability of a child (from consuming a mind-altering drug). A child would need to change from this “treatment” to an alternative rational treatment programme, (without the use of mind-altering drugs). When a child is free from dependence on the mind-altering drug, I suggest that they would then be ready to be serviced by a contact from this list).
Bearing in mind the above, the following are resources that include in their service, assisting with great success, children with learning and study problems (unless otherwise directed by me in brown italics*).
