This is a beautifully written, deeply personal account of the author's own experiences with special needs treatment and education when her son was diagnosed with a series of disorders. Chaley provides a meticulously researched and powerfully charged argument against the educational and pharmaceutical industries regarding 'special needs'. In essence she claims that these pseudo-disabilities are grossly over-diagnosed. She says loving and dedicated parents are being duped into drugging and training their children for the convenience of schools and for profit. This thought-provoking book demonstrates how we need to fight back for the sake of our children and for all humanity.
