Dear Readers, This is another Parity by Rich Shull, and present on the blog Pre Rain Man Autism. This originally appeared on the America Online Front Page welcome greeting. Sunday 17- March -2007 My comments are in Blue!Solving the Puzzle of Autism
Why early intervention is keyIt seems like Autism Awareness month, usually in April has started early. Is that of function of the billion Dollar "research empire" and the associated spin machine to support it?
By Ginny Graves
When Dana Hall's 18-month-old son Cameron was diagnosed with autism, the Bon Ayr
, Kentucky mom felt like the floor dropped out from underneath her. "There's nothing worse than realizing that your child has a serious problem. I cried for a week," says Hall. Then she plunged into researching the disorder, and what she read gave her hope. "I found out that getting diagnosed early is one of the best things that can happen," she says. "Early intervention is key."Modern Autism would like for you to believe that and indeed from their knowledge base of autism IT is the right thing to do. However If they admitted to all of us that missed Rain Man's Curse they would have to sing a different tune, for once. We would prove they missed the entire point to autism. Our Thought process has never been in a book before and it is Einstein and not MR/DD.
Many kids with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD
), a range of developmental problems characterized by impaired communication and social interaction skills and repetitive behaviors, aren't identified until age 4 — or later. While there's no such thing as "too late" to begin receiving treatment for autism, recent research shows that the earlier a child is identified, the more interventions such as speech therapy and behavior training are likely to help.If our Anthropology was admitted to and our Family's and teachers and tutors were interviewed it would obvious we were better off in our double-blind experience than the modern diagnosed kids of today are. We learned to talk, Our Splinter skills were our learning hallway and today splinter skills are taboo in Autism circles (thanks to Dr Rimalnd) and once our Picture thoughts were figured out We even did Social things with grace.
The disorder that's suddenly everywhereOf Course it is. Ignorance Like this, driven by a billion dollar Research Empire needs an Epidemic to be self-sustaining. The Sad part is Autism is built on a false foundation. That false foundation is nothing more than room for error and their are plenty of them. The very worst error is the Autism Powers have had knowledge of our Temple Grandin Anthropology and most of us figured out Autism a never in print before thought process and our "successful" lives prove we did something right and in the name of the cause the self-elected "experts of modern Autism either see a gravy train, cash cow, and chance to become intellectually famous researching Autism. Really the Autism Epidemic could become a good thing if our knowledge base was tapped. Autism is Einstein not Mental Retardation. Our thought process goes back to the cave man, Our Pain Free injuries re spin about all of medical science. If we do Autism Right it is genius, If we do it wrong it a group home condition. The fine line between success and failure is so obvious when the old pre rain man autism folks are accounted for.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)It appears my comments representing MY (our) Autism Anthropology I gave at a public town hall autism meeting (Indianapolis Indiana) held by the CDC were BANISHED from the public record. One must wonder with all the big names in Autism present including the late Dr Rimalnd that it was conspired that comments like mine were to be banished?
estimates that as many as 1 in 150 kids have an ASD
; in contrast, 15 years ago, the prevalence of autism was believed to be about 1 per 2,000 to 2,500. It's unclear whether the startling rise is due to benign causes — better detection or a broader definition of autism that includes kids with less severe versions of the disorder — or something in the environment. "There's lots of research and lots of speculation, but no one really knows," says Amaral
.I beg to differ, Our anthropology certainly doesn't have all the answers but we do have a proven success record that if accounted for would reinvent the Autism we know all to well today.
"There's lots of research and lots of speculation, but no one really knows," says Amaral
. Well, if that ignorance is intentional Autism is money driven epidemic, and we have been cheated, especially mankind. To prove they are honest and caring and honest researchers they should be willing and delighted to admit to our anthropology-but, perhaps we are not welcome news? We certainly don't have a legacy of group home people, in fact many of us do some sort of real life and even are social and drive! Now If we to were treated like the modern autism folks we too would be in a group home. Obvious information like that is bad for business, the business of autism.
What is clear is that heredity plays a role, and since autism is a complex disorder (some kids have seizures, some allergies, some have high IQs
, some low), I have a theory the autism thoughts are the SAME weather we are village idiot, a savant or a rocket scientist and if they know our invisible to you thought process they too would see the good in this theory.
most experts believe that different genes are affected in different kids. Greater insight may be on the horizon. The CDC recently launched a $5.9 million study to identify genetic and environmental factors that may increase risk, and the federal government approved additional funding for research of nearly $1 billion over a five-year period.Money Talks And "Autism Speaks," too bad it doesn't listen.
"I think we're going to find that a number of factors interact to cause the disorder," says Stanley Greenspan, M.D., a clinical professor of psychiatry and pediatrics at George Washington University Medical School in Washington, D.C. "Genetic or prenatal factors might make a child more vulnerable to a virus or environmental toxin."Early diagnosis makes a differenceOf course it does, hopefully unknowingly you need people to fulfill the epidemic quotas and keep the buzzword status of autism alive and you have to have the poor autistic kids and their families in the MR/DD group home mode at a young age to prevent them from having the same chances to overcome with Autism like we were able to do. The longer we go WITH OUT diagnosis the better chance we have of a real life. Our history proves that time and again. Even people modern autism people from other countries were Autism Diagnosis is not quite the buzzword ideal we know prove Autism does better without the help.
While the "why" of autism remains frustratingly elusive, the "what to do about it" has come into sharper focus of late. We need to protect our jobs and research empire! We could research Autism to death and have an uncritqueed career if we play our cards right.
The best outcomes, experts agree, occur when kids are identified early—but that still happens less frequently than it should. We certainly can't admit to any autism person that missed Rain Man's Curse, Our Very Own Dr Rimland set the gold standard of Autism on his ignorance and if was good enough for him it is more than good enough for us! We are very ignorant researchers and we refuse to be educated when our Pay checks depend on our ignorance. Besides one of us might be become accidentally famous.
Part of the problem is that there's no blood test or other biological marker for autism, so doctors must diagnose children based on behavior. Screening takes time, and no one even knew what to look for in the very young until recently. We invented a few broad based ideals in Autism diagnosis and they proven to be a very good business decision.
As experts hone in on the behaviors that are likely to indicate a problem, more children will be referred to specialists earlier. Recent research has found that in high-risk groups, red flags, like lack of babbling or eye contact, can be spotted at 1 year of age or younger. (See our Milestone Checklist.)Our Milestones, from our worldwide anthropology highlight the very foundation to autism invisible to you thought process signaled by the lack of eye contact. These core thoughts of autism are news to the very ignorant researchers that think they are so smart.
"This reinforces what parents have been saying for years: Signs of autism are there from an early age," says Lonnie Zwaigenbaum
, M.D., a developmental pediatrician at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, who's involved in the research. "If you're concerned, trust your instincts and be assertive with your doctor. The more specific you can be — 'My baby isn't making eye contact' — the more likely a physician is to pay attention."Oh Boy the LACK OF EYE CONTACT is the BEST thing to ever happen in Autism, it proves our different never in print before thought process is working as mother nature intended it to work, If the "expert" would care to listen we could tell just what its and WHY the lack of Eye contact is the best thing to happen in autism. Don't worry once we figure out things We give you eye contact and even become social!Treatments that turn kids around
And put them in the scope of a group home, that is EXACTLY where they need to be it keeps the wheels of ignorant autism lubed.
Even so, it's still rare to receive a definitive diagnosis of autism in a child younger than 18 months. "There's so much variability in child development that without an objective test, it's dicey to say for sure whether a child has ASD
," says Rebecca Landa
, Ph.D., director of the Kennedy-Krieger Institute's
Center for Autism and Related Disorders in Baltimore. "That said, we now believe you should treat a child with developmental delays, even if you don't have a firm diagnosis. You can't say, 'Well, if he's still not talking by age 3 we'll do something.'" Holly Cow if even one researcher knew our thought process they would not worry about talking, they would know why we do and don't do it. For an Autistic person to talk we need to do a few extra steps to convert our autism thoughts to words, most people do this automatically we have to learn to do it. So far we have had to this on our own via trial and error, mostly with the aid of our splinter skills.
Of the dozens of treatments available, the most thoroughly researched are Dr. Greenspan's "Floortime
" — in which the child is engaged in things she's interested in, then guided toward more complex interactions (making eye contact by holding a beloved toy near the mother's eyes, for example) — and applied behavioral analysis, which uses positive reinforcement to build a child's social, communication, and academic skills. If the Autism Researchers knew anything about the Autism they claim knowledge about they would realize when Our Brains are ON (lack of eye contact) our eyes are OFF. Once we complete our Thought our optic vision returns to 'normal' then we can worry if you sticking your tongue out at us or not.
Most interventions use a variety of methods to address a range of symptoms.
Even more challenging than choosing a course for intervention isDealing with Rain Man 's curse and the resulting billion dollar epidemic
navigating the system to get access to the services a child needs. Children younger than 3 are eligible for early-intervention assistance, a federally funded program that's available in every state, but it's easier to find in urban areas than in rural ones. Parents often have to be creative — and persistent — about getting the help they need.The Autism Researcher have indeed created a HUGE need and it is a very good business practice to have parent in turmoil fighting for their kids. What parent would not?
"Trying to secure adequate services for a child with autism can be an incredibly frustrating experience, one that many parents describe as a full-time job in itself," says Suzanne Wright, who with her husband cofounded
Autism Speaks, a public-awareness group that funds autism research, after their grandson was diagnosed with the disorder. "I encourage parents to be aggressive and to use websites like ours to connect with other families who can help." I admire the Efforts of AUTISM SPEAKS their hearts are in the right place but unknowingly their efforts are only making Autism the very problem it is. They are unknowingly spreading the cancer of Autism ignorance and like the rest of autism they would be SHOCKED to discover what we have figured out.
Almost all children make progress with appropriate treatment — and some may even reach the point where they no longer meet the criteria for ASD
.Those are lucky devils, like we were We prove Autism explains everything from Einstein to Dyslexia and might well be the building blocks of the human mind.
When Hall's son was first diagnosed, he received just one hour each of speech and developmental intervention per week. With the help of Advocates for the Rights of Citizens with Disabilities, however, she's managed to cobble together services — including occupational and speech therapies — that total more than 20 hours a week. "I've had to battle to get Cameron help," says Hall. "I've learned the meaning of the term 'squeaky wheel.'" But her efforts are paying off. Although Cameron was nonverbal when he began therapy, now, at 29 months, he can sign for things he wants and has nearly 40 words in his vocabulary. "He's also reached the point where he can have a plate of food in front of him without throwing it on the floor — and that's big progress," she says. "Every day I see new changes. The therapy is helping, and every positive step gives us new hope."There is EVEN MORE hope in Autism's Past! Well, depending on how you look at it ,the hope we hold and offer to man kind might just cripple Autism - no billion dollar research empire will stand for that especially since its victims are "retarded" zombiefied kids and adults in group homes. Autism Speaks, but if we speak we are naturally spoken for already. Too bad Autism powers don't have clue to what they are talking about. Even worse they refuse to listen!
