Summary Diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, oppositional defiance disorder, and pervasive developmental disorder in the early 1990s, Robert Stevens was an exceptionally intelligent child who could not function in a mainstream environment. Under a psychiatrist's care, and on several powerful medications, his parents did not know whether they were seeing their son or the results of the medications he was taking. Desperate, the Stevens family turned to holistic therapies, and Robert began to show improvement. By third grade he was off all medications, attending a mainstream school, making friends, and simply being himself.
