Glossary of Terms.


A person who administers a business or public affairs (administer: Attend to the running of).


Put to practical use, as opposed to theoretical.

Attention Deficit Disorder:

A theoretical “mental illness” described in Psychiatry as “a persistent pattern of inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity or both, occurring more frequently and severely than is typical in individuals at a comparable level of development”. This is typically treated as a mental illness by Psychiatry a common treatment being strong Psychotropic drugs similar to Cocaine.

This is not regarded as an illness in Study Technology, and the use of any type of drugs in Education is considered extremely dangerous and counter-productive and we would strongly caution against this approach.

Children diagnosed with this theoretical “condition” are often marginalized and stigmatized for life. While Psychiatry offers no real solution to this problem, this “illness” usually disappears quite quickly with the use of Study Technology and the condition is explained and remedied in the Barriers to Study.

There is also much research indicating a strong connection between food allergies and “Hyperactivity” and it is usually found that a visit to a competent Nutritionist combined with remedying the child’s study difficulties with L. Ron Hubbard’s Study Technology deals with this “illness”.

Defined by Psychology as: “An abnormal difficulty in reading and spelling, caused by a condition of the brain”. This is, once again, a theoretical “condition” and no real explanation is offered as to what this “condition of the brain” is.

Once again this can often be remedied using nutritional methods and mostly disappears when the Barriers to Study are properly remedied.
