(AP Wire- photo) AMA Told Too Many Children Drugged For Hyperactivity CHICAGO (AP) -- About twice as many children are being given drugs for hypcrac- tivity as should be, says an Ohio researcher. He says the drugs are administered for the benefit of teachers and parents who simply want to control unruly children. The researcher. Dr. Herbert E. Rie, said Tuesday at the American Medical Association's annual meeting children who have not been thoroughly examined are being labeled hype- raclive. The diagnosis, and prescription of drugs, is being made on the basis of parents' and teachers' reports and sup e r f i c i a l examination, h e claimed. Rie, professor of pediatrics and psychology at Ohio Slate University, told newsmen later that about 4 per cent of children are deemed hyperactive, while probably only 2 per cent actually are, based on thorough examinations, A child's agitated behavior may grow out of environmental and not neurological conditions, he said. WRONG DIAGNOSIS "It is my impression that the physician often relies upon pa- rental or school complaints as the primary basis for his diag nosis of hyperacfivity," Hi said. "Kids whom people don' tolerate for many reasons ar given this label.". Stimulant medications, whic have the effect of making chi dren more tranquil, have bee considered lo make childre more attentive and thereby en ahle I hem to learn more. But Rie said just becaus they're quiet doesn't mear they're learning any more Studies at Ohio State hav shown learning is not in creased, he added. Hie said that paradoxically underachieving children wh are disruptive receive attentioi and special help, but after the; are drugged into submjssio they are ignored because the are uiiet. HR said hypcractivity ma camouflage a child's othe problems and treating this be tiavior alone may be adequate. He said childre should be evaluated for learn ig difficulties or emotiona problems so that these prob lems might be treated if the are llio cause of the child's dii ficulties. Pentagon Said Concerned With Sharing Secrets With Russia WASHINGTON (AP) -- Some key Pentagon officials are concerned t h a t sharing certain U.S. technology with Russia under the detente policy could impair national security.
