Here is a link to an article in Time about how children in institutionalized care are receiving anti-psychotic meds for conditions that the medications are meant to treat: http://healthland.time.com/2011/05/26/why-children-and-the-elderly-are-so-drugged-up-on-antipsychotics/?hpt=Sbin
It's very sad if the meds are being prescribed to keep the children more manageable, and am glad that the pharmecutical companies are being held accountable for it.
