Synopsis by Alice Day
This series of programs provides information on many medical conditions and offers commentary from experts in their fields. As growing numbers of American children are diagnosed with attention deficit disorder, parents and other individuals wonder if the numbers are too high, and if otherwise healthy children are being overmedicated. Doctor Is In: Diagnosis & Treatment of Attention Deficit Disorder in Children scrutinizes the criteria by which a child is judged, and the effectiveness of the drugs that are prescribed. Two psychiatrists appear on the program to discuss the issues involved, and one school's alternative approach is shown.
