    The series 'Science to patients' of the Dutch ME/cfs Association (ME/cvs Vereniging) continues in January with web seminars with dr. Nigel Speight.

    The first episode will be an interview with doctor Speight about his involvement in child protection cases due to ME. He won 28 out of 30 cases in Great Brittain. Next he will give web seminars about ME in children, a subject that is underexposed.

    Dr. Speight will be followed by dr. C. Shepherd in the end of February. In springtime the series will be continued with dr. Julia Newton and dr. Leonard Jason.

    Here's the full 15 minute interview with Dr Speight:
    www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcRZo1vO53c



    He talks about the child protection cases (ME/CFS related) that he's been involved with.

    Warning: It's sad and depressing. (Edit: But eye-opening.)

    It sure is sad, but it might be of help to anyone. Especially as there is not much particulary for kids with ME.

    Thank you for sharing!
