Don’t mislabel our children

By From page A6 | December 12, 2012

As a teacher, a parent and well, I guess just an informed human being, please let me state for the record that autism, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and bipolar disorder are not, and will never be, “serious emotional problems” as stated in Kathy Glatter’s op-ed piece Sunday.

I am chagrined that a medical doctor termed them as such and hope that our “highly educated Davis community” recognized this grave error in labeling our kids in this egregious way.
