"Clearly, we know that parents' input and verbal involvement with kids has a pretty significant effect upon their development," said Dr. Richard Gallagher of New York University's Child Study Center.
"And so if it gets what you would describe as slightly watered down for older-born kids, that could have an effect." That said, Gallagher, associate professor of child and adolescent psychiatry at the NYU School of Medicine, said we need to be careful about assuming that a firstborn is always going to perform better academically than his or her siblings. He also said there's a takeaway here for all of us parents. "When you know this information, it's a good idea to say, 'Hmmm. I guess I better not provide less attention in the early years to my next born kid. I guess I should also make sure that I should raise the same kinds of concerns about school performance with my younger kids that I've done with my older kids,' " he said.

Coaxing Children With Selective Mutism to Find Their Voices | Dr. Bridget Walker [cached]

Richard Gallagher, a director of the selective mutism program at NYU Langone's Child Study Center, said weekend sessions would be held this fall at a campus in Hackensack, N.J.

"One possibility is that kids with ADHD make less-healthy food choices," said Richard Gallagher.
Still, the findings do seem to mesh with some past research, said Gallagher, an associate professor of child and adolescent psychiatry at NYU Langone Child Study Center in New York City. Studies have hinted that omega-3 fatty acids can help lessen ADHD symptoms. And the Mediterranean diet tends to be high in those fats, which are largely derived from oily fish such as salmon, mackerel and tuna. And regardless of whether the diet affects ADHD, it's still a generally healthy one that parents can encourage, Gallagher said. "This is the type of diet that's recommended for everyone, for their overall health," he pointed out. Many parents want to know whether diet changes can help ease ADHD symptoms, Gallagher said. But research on the topic has not produced many solid answers. In the 1970s, Gallagher noted, the so-called Feingold diet came into vogue. It advised parents to rid their child's diet of artificial dyes and preservatives, plus some fruits and vegetables. Since then, though, research has failed to show that approach is effective, Gallagher said. There has also been evidence linking deficiency in certain nutrients, like iron and zinc, to ADHD. But again, Gallagher said, actual proof is lacking.
