Mama Bear,
I'm on the run today and don't have access to my notes on TD. I never specifically looked for information about young children but I'll check them anyway as soon as I can. Until then, a few quick thoughts.

The symptoms you are seeing, which start when the drug is removed, can go away over time. Hold on to that thought. And, while I don't know specifically about TD, in most other things the brains of young children are tremendously flexible so that should also give you hope.

As far as Breggin as an expert, you need to know that American courts do not pass judgment on the competence of so called "expert witnesses". Each side gets whoever they please and often the lawyers seek out (and pay for - don't forget that) someone who will make the most extreme statements for their side. Breggin, obviously is a plaintiff's attorney's dream. BTW another aspect of the american system (and I'm assuming you're canadian from your email address) is that the plaintiff's lawyers in malpractice suits get a percentage of whatever money is recovered.

I've read Breggin's book. He raises some interesting things to think about but, as I recall, he also slants things pretty outrageously. It would be a good idea to check everything you read there somewhere else.

Good luck and let us know how it goes with your daugher.
