Sounds like a good idea for me, especially if there are early intervention type treatments or therapeutics that could improve their life. There are also a lot of genetic disorders that are no immediately apparent at birth that should be screened for, once the technology is sufficiently advance. This is especially true for the ones that are treatable.


I agree 100%.
My wife had a child in her care whom she identified as being in her opinion, autistic.
She spoke to the parents, and asked if they had sought any medical advice about their child's behavioural issues.
They told her they had, as their best friend was also a highly respected paediatrician, and he had said it was nothing to worry about, probably just a stage he was going through.
These people were for want of a better word, yuppies, with social aspirations that did not include having a child with any imperfections, as they saw it, so denial was the primary driver of their opinions.
My wife however had to consider the welfare of their child, as well as all the others he was interacting with, so she called in a professional, to observe the group this child was in.
All he was told was that she believed one of the children in the group may have developmental issues.

TWO minutes, he watched them, and said, that child is autistic.
Parents called in, forced to address the issue, child gets treatment, his developmental potential increase dramatically, because he receives treatment at an early age.

I understand why people get suspicious of quackery, where every misbehaving child is assigned a label to absolve the parents of any responsibility for raising a little poo of a kid, but the truth is that most professionals do not do that, and will just try and get treatment for the kids who treatment will help.
I cannot see any down side to that.

its  GOOD EXAMPLE. childhood mental problems do exist and sometimes the ONLY cures exists as preschoolers or preteens. early intervention is the best cure.

I acknowledge some of the concenrs about over-diagnosis or misdiagnosis but that same probem ovvers in every area of medical care.

Yes, bedwetting and nightlights. I don't think they are going to be looking for a more sinister diagnosis. I still say it's a rort. There will be hundreds of misdiagnosis causing parents unnecessary anxiety.

Gee! my five year old still wets the bed, I wish someone would have intervened when he was three.

My eight year old still has a night light. Big freaking deal, let him have it until he's 25, who cares?

They are trying to make normal things abnormal, it's stupid.

Yes, you're right.  However, "they" are also trying to make abnormal things normal.

What's their game?

WTH? As young as 3? How the heck can they tell @ that age if a child has a mental illness? That is ridiculous. Hate to be a godwin but hitler did this kind of crap. A lot of our mental health knowledge comes from his experiments.

SOB

THEY ARE SELLING PILLS...

These people take money to assasinate peoples character (mummy and daddys all over the shop love this bit!!) and sell pills!

IT'S A WIN WIN WIN FOR THE CABAL!!!

to be fair, bedwetting can be an indicator of serious problems. In the vast majority of cases, bedwetting means nothing other than developmental delay (if that). but it CAN also be a sign of serious internal malfunction. for example, did you know that EVERY SINGLE MALE SOCIOPATH was an adult bedwetter?

It's not the bedwetting but rather what it MIGHT indicate. After all is there any parent still onthe planet that is unaware that a traumatised kid is likely to wet the bed????

I doubt very much they are teaching 3 year olds homosexuality or even assessing them for it.
