Autism For Parents

Blogs by parents

There are many blogs by parents of autistic children, with more being added all the time. The subject matter in these blogs runs the whole spectrum (no pun intended) of life with autism. Some parents are trying to understand autism, some are trying to find – and encourage others to find – a cure, some are simply sharing what they learn with others, and some are just trying to cope. I hope you find this list, and the blogs on it, useful.

I expect this page to be an ever-growing work in progress. Please, if you know of – or write – a blog that you think should be on this list let me know via e-mail or in the comments.

  • A Boy With Autism – A family who has a young boy with autism … just some things from a parents point of view.
  • Adventures in Autism – In March of 2004 we got confirmation that our beautiful two year old son, Chandler, was autistic. Here we share his story and all we are learning about autism.
  • Along the Spectrum – I’m writing this site primarily as a personal outlet for my thoughts and ideas. Hopefully it will lead to dialogue with others and provide some assistance to others that live ‘along the spectrum’. I get a lot of positive support from sharing experiences with other parents of children on the spectrum. I’m hoping this will lead to similar moments for both the author and the readers.
  • Autism: Deal With It! – A blog about dealing with Autism as an adult and as a parent. Not your typical “____ caused my (child’s) Autism” blog! I hope by sharing my challenges, others can help me and I can help them. Oh, and it is also a way to sell my Autism related T-Shirts (Hey, at least I am honest about it!)
  • We Go With Him – on the road with our son Charlie in Autismland
  • Autistic Conjecture of the Day – Dazed and amazed by the theories, research, and snake oil offered up as *THE* answer to autism – both its causation and cure? Well, so am I. On this, my little notebook in cyberspace, I will be collecting and publishing articles from both the past and present, dealing with autism from the medical, behaviorist, personal, naturopathic, and parenting points of view. May we all, in the midst of these multitudinous words, find what we need to move on with courage, strength, and dignity.
  • Hard Won Wisdom – So, your child has been diagnosed with A.D.H.D., A.D.D, A.D.H.D.-N.O.S., L.D., Autism, Asperger’s, P.D.D., P.D.D.- N.O.S., S.I.D., H.F.A., Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, or any other “diseases” that haven’t even been thought up yet…As a parent and teacher…here is the blog never around when I needed it. I hope it helps!
  • Hidden Recovery – Autism recovery can happen!  A parent’s experience with high-Functioning Autism.  Diagnosed at 2 with PDD-NOS, and recovered by kindergarten. Articles and documentation  by  Ashley Morgan, mother
  • Injecting Sense – A father’s blog.
  • Joy of Autism – My thoughts on life with autism, through literature, philosophy, and learning to look at the world through Adam’s transparent coloured blocks…
  • Left Brain / Right Brain -Web creativity and autistic logic – all under one roof!
  • Living a Cryptogram – A ladder is a letter “A”. A clothes hanger is a number “2”. Chairs make the letter “H”. Letters and numbers are everywhere. Just ask Conor.
  • MOM – Not Otherwise Specified – On raising a son on the autism spectrum, progressive politics, pop culture, and coffee addiction.
  • Party of Six – On raising a preteen, toddler twins, an infant and battling autism
  • On the Spectrum – A clearinghouse of information about Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs). Got some information you want to share? Email me at
  • The Zoë Zone – Notes on the life, times, and development of Miss Zoë Bromage, as recorded by her mother. Also includes minor notes on updates to this website. Just in case you’re unaware, Zoë is mildly autistic, so a lot of what is written here has to do with her development and therapies and so forth.

    • Hello,
      My name is Dr. Sharon Young. I am writing a book comprised of parental insights to include photographic images. My goal is to combine the photographic essence of your child with your inspiring interpretation of “your reality” as someone who loves a child with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis. Your written portion can be one sentence or a page. This is entirely up to you. With this publication I hope to cast a positive light on preconceived perception of children with ASD.


      The distinct difference between this book and additional publications is that this book provides a unique opportunity for society to see a parent’s personal truth of autism. My book will integrate photographic methods and incorporate an interpretive narrative from parents that reveals the irreplaceable spirit of their child. Parent/s will create a photograph, or use a favorite, to coincide with their individual experience of loving a child with autism.

      My hope is, that this book will contribute to enlighten readers and nurture a dialogue integrating experiences of the parents of these extraordinary children.

      There is a quote I believe summarized the diversity of children with autism,
      “If you’ve met one child with autism, well, you’ve met one child with autism”
      Linda Brandenburg (2009).

      If you are interested in contributing please send a brief email and I will forward additional information.

      For every book sold a percentage of the profits will be donated to promote autism awareness.

      Thank you for your time and consideration,

      Sharon K. Young Ph.D.

  5. Hi!

    We have started a parents blogging corner at our website where parents can share their parenting experiences, tips and challenges. (For more details about who we are…we request you to please visit our website)

    The uniqueness of the blog lies in the fact that this blog is ‘inclusive’ and has parents of both typical and differently abled children blogging.

    Do visit us at

    We would like to also take this oppotunity to invite parents to start their own blog space with us if interested. Do write to us at

    Thanks and looking forward to seeing you all at our blogging corner,

    Vidya Ganesh.

  6. I think this is good. I have become familiar with a website called caringbrigde. It is for families to post thier stories about thier children with life threatening illnesses. I wish we could have some site like this for our stories about living with our children who have autism! Would that not be great?

  8. Im new to the Autism blog I am newly married to a man with a 12 year old Severely Autistic child he truly is a beautiful child unfortunately his mom takes him for granted and we are only allowed to have him every other weekend. When we get him he’s so regressed he drinks from a bottle while he’s with them cause they are too lazy to teach him how to drink he’s not potty trained so we are changing a big boys diaper. I was hoping to find a good summer program in Dallas Tx but unfortunately there are no programs out there for him. If anyone knows of one please let me know other wise this poor child will be spending his summer with Grandma and learning nothing.

    • Hey Margie, I just read your blog and because your grandchild is so severly autistic, I thought maybe you could understand what I am going through. My grandson Darryl lives with me and has for the last 2 years. His mother, my daughter Candace, was always there for him and took good care of him while he was growing up. I kept him during his 13th year, just to give her a break, but she is one of those people who always tried to do it by herself and never complain. Darryl is now 20 years old and will be 21 in two days. He does not talk. Lately his agression has been more often. He is not agressive by nature, but is loving and caring. He loves to kiss me and just sit and hold my hands while manipulating my fingers back and forth. When he can’t get himself understood, he becomes agressive. He has always stratched, but lately he has been really sticking those fingernails into my hands and arms. My hands look like I am an ex heroine addict. He will grab me by the shirt and push and pull. He is not 6 feet tall and skinny, but I am only 5 ft 3 and I must say, there are times I think he is going to overpower me. The thing is that if he is being too agressive, and I can get out of his reach, it is only a matter of about 3-5 minutes and he will walk up to me with the biggest smile and all is forgotten and once again he is like a 3 year old waiting for hugs and kisses again. When Darryl was 18, my daughter put him into a living facility. He hated it, and I would pick him up every weekend and every day that he had no school. She finally gave in and let him come live with me. The thing is that his agression is getting so much more often, that I am having these thoughts that maybe I won’t be able to keep him unless I can discover some coping techniques. My Daughter got married 2 years ago and for the 1st time she has a life. She has a new child who is now 1 year old. I believe that Darryl has some issues with her for putting him in the facility and for going on and having a life without him. I believe that he is aware and is unable to voice what is bothering him. He will no leave with her and refuses to get out of my car when we visit her home. He looks at his baby sister but I can’t judge what is going on in his mind. I love Darryl more than anything in the world. I would die for him and I would live my best for him. I just wish I knew how to keep him from being so agressive towards me. Any suggestion?

  11. More and more autism studies seem over-intellectualized, sluggish and vacuousa product of government funded guesswork where elusive experts pad last minute conclusions with intellectual drivel. The drivel drives me nuts. How can academics write so much about kids they haven’t lived with? Much of the research involves brief studies of autistic children in institutions or group homes, as if random weekly, 15-minute visits over a few months birth healthy data, background, hypothesis and analysis. Case in point: Jenny McCarthy’s trip to the neurologist. As McCarthy herself admits, the doctor diagnosed her child after five minutes. Criteria? Hand flapping and lining up toys in a straight line. The kid was two years old. Then, slowly, the kid recovers. Well, back up folks. The kid has epilepsy. He got medication. After medication, he started talking. He made eye contact. He is social. He is normal. Not autism people. Not autism. This hypervigilance in diagnosing children with autism is exactly what is pushing truly autistic children to the back of the help line. It’s why autism research is now one of the most corrupt cash cows going. Think I’m making this up? Here’s the reality: After my son was diagnosed with autism, I dug up a California University that studied children with autism. Surely, theyd find my self injurious autistic child’s case interesting. A chance to really help an autistic child in major crisis. Immediately, I explained our son to an intake screener. Im sorry, she interrupted. It sounds like your son is too low functioning for our program. We work with higher functioning autistics. Self-injurious behavior requires extensive behavioral analysis, documentation and treatment modalities. Flabbergasted by the screener’s unapologetic candor, I hung up. Later, I phoned another University. Again, the screener seemed uninterested in a case that didnt have a direct bearing on a positive grant flow. Yes, it appeared treating autistic children with limited developmental skills was risky business. After all, if researchers dont show immediate resultsgrant monies ceased. Consequently, more researchers than wed like to imagine invent outcomes to keep the cash flowing. What a freaking joke. Anyway, I got so sick of all the scams. All the false hope. All the con artists posing as professionals that I said to hell with all you creeps and started giving my son garlic, changed his diet, gave him l-tryptophan, baths whenever he wanted, walks, massage, aromatherapy and lots of hugs and you know what? He was still autistic. He was still hitting himself, but at least he was happier, safer and his behavior was 70% reduced. Later, I discovered a skin shock therapy. That was the best thing we ever used. Totally stopped the head punching. Faded the device after seven years. Behavior came back , but not as savage and obsessive and mostly occurs when he’s in loud, chaotic settings, which is every school he’s ever been warehoused in by some apathetic lazy district. I hate public schools. They are a joke for severely autistic kids. Nothing but an army of experts who aren’t sure, don’t know and will get back to you after the Christmas, Easter and summer break. And if you call the nitwits to ask about educational progress, you find out they are either out to lunch, in a meeting, on vacation or sick. Ditto Regional Centers of California, with their brigade of fools who do nothing and I repeat nothing but write and write and write reports that nobody reads because they sit in dusty files. I say parents of autistic children, truly autistic children, should stay as far away from schools and government agenices as possible. They are total con artists.

    • I agree with you 100%. There are SO many con aritsts in the autism industry. Additionally, not only are public schools horrible, the private ABA centers charging $100,000 plus per year are really no better. Kids in them for years making very little progress but parents are just TOO stupid to notice or care.

  13. We are a group of researchers at Columbia University who would like to compile a list of autism advocacy and nonprofit organizations in the state of California into a comprehensive directory. We are interested in organizations of all sizes, types and locations. We hope to make this directory a publicly available all-inclusive resource serving the autism community, in addition to helping us answer some of our research questions related to understanding the autism epidemic. This research is funded by the 2007 NIH Pioneer Award, to Peter Bearman.
    If you work for or participate in an organization or group in California we would very much appreciate it if you could send us the name of the group and any contact information you may have. Once we build a complete list, we will contact those organizations directly.
    To write us, please send an email to For further information on the project please visit our website at . Thank you in advance for your time and assistance in accomplishing this project.

  19. I am the mother of 6 fantastic children, 3 of whom have been diagnosed on the spectrum. I do so empathize with parents who are frustrated with the lack of real substantive help, especially for more severe autism. My kids range from Aspergers to severe, but all three have dramatically improved thanks to a combination of biomedical and discrete video modeling. I was able to put together a family-centered program for my kids, find sources of funding, keep my marriage strong, home-school all 6, and still see dramatic improvements in the autism. I am giving 3 day retreats to help parents do the same. The retreats are in a beautiful mountain lodge, and combine a romantic get-away for the parents with a powerful program for treatment. The program is effective, proven, biomedical/behavioral/language based, and more than anything else, feasible. Please see

    Hello my name is John, father of 3, from Chicago. I am part of a small development new company called Nanoschool creating software for the iPhone, iPod and iPad mobile devices. Our project began looking at technology and the classroom but will be expanding. Kids today are growing up with more influences from a digital community, the immersion is almost inescapable. So what can we do that is positive?

    This technology allows to design and develop very interactive software, games, utilities and pocket learning that is affordable, portable and easy to use. Currently we are researching our first series of interactive apps for children with autism.

    I would like to hear back from any parents if possible. Any ideas, suggestions or pointers to other good sites for us to begin would be appreciated. Of course any professionals that could volunteer or advise are very much needed.

    Thank you!

    • Diane,
      Have no fear! Constipation and other GI problems are super common. My son is also on the GF diet (as well as CF, no sugar, no preservatives, and nothing artificial)and we needed to put him on vitamin supplements because his bellie couldn’t extract nutrience from food. Anyway, one of the supplements was 1000mg of Vitamin C. His doctor said to give him 2 per day and increase once per week until his stool was runny, then back up one dose. Thats how we would know what amount his body needed. It is remarkable how well it works on his constipation! This poor boy used to be in so much pain it was heartbreaking! Believe it or not.. something as simple as Vit C has saved him from all that. Good Luck to you and your grand daughter!

  43. Hi: Thanks for this comprehensive list of blogs – nice job.

    I’m looking for a blog directed to parents of severe “lower functioning” ASD individuals ages 21 years plus. My son, Nathan, is 21 years old & considered low functioning: non-verbal, cannot read or write, with limited social skills. Some would say severe developmental delays. I know there are others out there and I would like to communicate/share ideas, thoughts, sorrows, joys, etc.

    Anyone know of such a blog????

    • Hey Cecilia, I just read your blog and because your child is so severly autistic, I thought maybe you could understand what I am going through. My grandson Darryl lives with me and has for the last 2 years. His mother, my daughter Candace, was always there for him and took good care of him while he was growing up. I kept him during his 13th year, just to give her a break, but she is one of those people who always tried to do it by herself and never complain. Darryl is now 20 years old and will be 21 in two days. He does not talk. Lately his agression has been more often. He is not agressive by nature, but is loving and caring. He loves to kiss me and just sit and hold my hands while manipulating my fingers back and forth. When he can’t get himself understood, he becomes agressive. He has always stratched, but lately he has been really sticking those fingernails into my hands and arms. My hands look like I am an ex heroine addict. He will grab me by the shirt and push and pull me across the room. He is now 6 feet tall and skinny, but I am only 5 ft 3 and I must say, there are times that I think he is going to overpower me. The thing is that if he is being too agressive, and I can get out of his reach, it is only a matter of about 3-5 minutes and he will walk up to me with the biggest smile and all is forgotten and once again he is like a 3 year old waiting for hugs and kisses again. When Darryl was 18, my daughter put him into a living facility. He hated it, and I would pick him up every weekend and every day that he had no school. She finally gave in and let him come live with me. The thing is, his agression is coming so much more often, that I am having these thoughts that maybe I won’t be able to keep him unless I can discover some coping techniques. My Daughter got married 2 years ago and for the 1st time she has a life. She has a new child who is now 1 year old. I believe that Darryl has some issues with her for putting him in the facility and for going on and having a life without him. I believe that he is aware and is unable to voice what is bothering him. He will not leave with her and refuses to get out of my car when we visit her home. He looks at his baby sister but I can’t judge what is going on in his mind. I love Darryl more than anything in the world. I would die for him and I would live my best for him. I just wish I knew how to keep him from being so agressive towards me. Any suggestion?

  45. I have read quite a few articles by parents of autistic children but have a question. I have a friend who has an 11 year old autistic boy. I have known him since birth and love him as if he were my own grandchild. He likes to come to our place to visit sometimes and is always well behaved while here. He talks very well, is a computer whiz and loves movies. However he is becoming very agressive towards his parents, especially his mom, lately. I am not afraid of him as he has never been aggressive to me, nor have I seen this side of him. He has talked of suicide to his folks though. I would really like someone to talk to on how I can help him or how I should respond to him in some situations. If anyone can spare time to email me I would really appreciate it. Please let me chat with someone other than his parents, they know I care but I need an outside opinion. I care about this family so much.

    • Hello,
      My name is Dr. Sharon Young. I am writing a book comprised of parental insights to include photographic images. My goal is to combine the photographic essence of your child with your inspiring interpretation of “your reality” as someone who loves a child with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis. Your written portion can be one sentence or a page. This is entirely up to you. With this publication I hope to cast a positive light on preconceived perception of children with ASD.


      The distinct difference between this book and additional publications is that this book provides a unique opportunity for society to see a parent’s personal truth of autism. My book will integrate photographic methods and incorporate an interpretive narrative from parents that reveals the irreplaceable spirit of their child. Parent/s will create a photograph, or use a favorite, to coincide with their individual experience of loving a child with autism.

      My hope is, that this book will contribute to enlighten readers and nurture a dialogue integrating experiences of the parents of these extraordinary children.

      There is a quote I believe summarized the diversity of children with autism,
      “If you’ve met one child with autism, well, you’ve met one child with autism”
      Linda Brandenburg (2009).

      If you are interested in contributing please send a brief email and I will forward additional information.

      For every book sold a percentage of the profits will be donated to promote autism awareness.

      Thank you for your time and consideration,

      Sharon K. Young Ph.D.

  49. To Whom it May Concern,
    My son was diagnosed severely autistic when he was 2. My son eliminated all of his symptoms and learning disabilities through a series of non-invasive, completely natural treatments that I did with him. He is now 13 years old and he is completely mainstream. His recovery was only because of the various cutting edge therapies that he did. I have put everything that I have learned in 11 years about healing autism into an ebook that can change your child’s life forever. I urge you to go and start healing your child today. I know it may sound too good to be true but every child will benifit from the therapies described in my book. Just because the medical community doesn’t have a pill to cure autism they say it is incurable. That is not the case and my son is living proof. When he was diagnosed the doctor told my I would have to take care of him his entire life. I refused to accept that fate for my son and you don’t have to accept it for your child either. Please read my book and start healing your child today.

  50. Two of our grandson’s (brothers) were diagnosed in the fall of last year. Some of the surprises have been the amount of “out of pocket” expense that seems unending. Right now I am trying to help find a safe bed for the youngest (most severe) child. The cost is so outrageous! Our daughter is filing request, filling out forms, calling agencies in the attempt to find help with the costs. I was wondering if there might be a way to find a used safe bed?? Am I just dreaming that that might be possible.

  56. Speech therapy and behavioral therapy is a complete lie. The only way to treat autism is by addressing the underlying immunological irregularities that precipitate changes in blood brain flow and the blood brain barrier.
    Please note, that autism is 4 times more prevalent in people with mastocytosis then in the general population, a fact not recognized by the dominant and arrogant main stream.

  72. The following update contains the most complete explanation of the cause and effect of childhood vaccinations MMR and autism in children and the Big Lie hatchet job being carried out against Dr. Andrew J. Wakefield:

    Materialist Analysis of Dietary Supplements

    The Obama Regime Uses the Pretext of Health Care “Reform” to
    Escalate Economic War Against the American People by Taxing the
    Working Class and Turning ALL Healthcare Over to the Insurance Companies
    And HMOs Rather than Instituting a Veterans Administration-Type or Medicare–Type
    Socialized Medicine and Escalates the Campaign to Ban Dietary Supplements!
    Obama Proposed a Bush-Privatization of the Veterans
    Administration within 2 Months of Taking Office!

    Dietary supplements are part healthcare and must be considered in context of what the capitalist dictatorship of millionaires and billionaires is doing to healthcare and why. The starting point of this analysis is the capitalists’ escalated attack against the masses under the Obama Regime. Because of the fact that the VA is an example of socialized medicine it was initially partially de-funded by the Bush Regime and more than 20 VA hospitals were threatened with closure! Obama’s claimed “support” for the VA is a sham and a Big Lie starting with an immediate attempt announced on March 16, 2009 to begin to privatize the Veterans Administration (!) less than two months of taking office! The Obama/Bush Regime attempted to authorize the Department of Veterans Affairs to force veterans to begin to partially pay for treating war-related injuries and other medical conditions, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, that are war-related using private insurance companies! The pretext was supposedly to “save” the VA about $530 million a year!

    The overhead of the Veterans Administration Hospitals is less than 5% and the overhead for Medicare is only 2%, while the overhead of the parasite HMO/private insurance plans is 30% or more, which forms the basis for their profits along with their stock price and the entirely illegal practice of “high frequency trading” AKA “Flash Trading”! There is NO money whatsoever “saved” by privatizing the Veterans Administration or Medicare. Just the opposite! The Obama regime is simply maneuvering to assist the private health insurers to increase their parasitizing off the misery, illness and disease of the American people and help to reduce the population of the United States! Incidentally, Veterans are already charged a privatized co-payment for non-war acquired medical conditions in order to help out the HMO parasites! Before proceeding it is crucial to define and explain the Big Lie Technique which is used on virtually all topics: There are 2 parts to the Big Lie: 1.) The first part of the Big Lie is that the lie must be BIG, because most people only tell little lies and are entirely unprepared for a Big Lie. 2.) The second part of the Big Lie Technique is to repeat the lie over and over again from every media source including textbooks and films until it is accepted as truth or accepted at least as partly true, when it is most invariably entirely false. In addition, lies may be lies of commission or crucial lies of omission. Both are unacceptable. The media, including the medical and science media is simply a privatized arm of the U.S. “intelligence agency,” an actual army of legions of professional liars in every area of politics and academic discipline and includes even so-called “comedians” working in service to the capitalist dictatorship of millionaires and billionaires. The U.S. media is very similar to Blackwater, Dyncorp, Custer Battles and Triple Canopy, etc. the armed military contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan, except that the media has always been privatized.

    Obama was immediately opposed on his Bush-privatization scheme by all veterans groups, which finally forced the new Veterans Affairs Secretary/Obama puppet Gen. Eric Shinseki to reverse his initial support for the Obama privatization plan! Previously the capitalists were able to deceive the masses domestically by throwing out a few crumbs and scraps, while the overwhelming bulk of their programs in the last several decades were deliberately designed to directly attack the lives and living standard of the majority of the American people. On June 24, 2009 after widespread criticism and increasing awareness among veterans that Obama was giving them the same treatment doled out under Bush the Congress passed legislation approving the budget for the Veteran’s Administration one year in advance to prevent the delays which had occurred for 19 of the last 22 years! Those delays combined with cutbacks were deliberately designed to cause cancellation or postponement of programs, not enough equipment, fewer doctors, longer waiting times and restricted access to healthcare for veterans causing rationing of healthcare in order to falsely discredit the Veterans Administration healthcare because it is SOCIALIZED MEDICINE!

    Remember that the words “reform” and “overhaul” under capitalism are simply codewords for attack on the Working Class and the Poor. The capitalists have now decided to escalate their attacks on the masses and have switched their gears to EXTERMINATE a significant percentage workers made “redundant,” under Globalism as well as a significant percentage of the general population. In fact the so-called “X-Generation” has been given that name as the private joke of the capitalists, with the X designating extermination! That is the meaning of the X-Generation! Globalism has rendered millions of workers redundant—no longer necessary under capitalism—and the present Economic Crisis/Second Great Depression has provided the ideal point for the U.S.-led World Capitalist Dictatorship to reduce their populations and the population of the entire world! The capitalists are now trumpeting their fraudulent plans for “universal health care.” This is all a deception meant to cover their primary program of population reduction. The capitalists have based the Obama Healthcare “Overhaul” on the present criminal parasite HMO insurance based health plans rather than the comparatively high quality system used by the U.S. Veterans Administration (VA), a form of socialized medicine, which is anathema to the capitalist dictatorship and their current puppet Obama. Under Socialism there is no need to “buy” health insurance from a parasite insurance industry. Free healthcare is universal, free and automatic just like in Cuba today, or as it was in the USSR before Gorbachev’s surrender to the threat of a nuclear war in response to the Full Court Press Nuclear Arms Race initiated by the U.S. in the 1980’s. (The so-called “collapse of the Soviet Union or of Socialism or Communism” is a textbook example of the Big Lie!) This is one more reason why we need a Socialist Revolution in the United States!

    Coenzyme Q10 Doubles Life Span in Experimental Animals

    After the capitalists exhaust their efforts to turn all medical care over to the insurance companies, they plan to escalate their ongoing false propaganda campaign against Dietary Supplements (see below) to a full court press targeting especially megadoses of antioxidants and herbal supplements. One nutrient mentioned more extensively below, Coenzyme Q10, is documented to double the mean life expectancy of experimental animals. The capitalist dictatorship tries to counter massive public support for dietary supplements by repeating the Big Lie: “We get all the vitamins we need in a well balanced diet.” Completely omitting the studies by Emile Bliznakov on Coenzyme Q10 and longevity in laboratory animals (see below), the U.S. capitalist dictatorship also relentlessly pushes the Big Lie that “caloric restriction is the only intervention which can increase life span up to 30% in laboratory animals.” (See CBS Sixty Minutes.) Side effects of caloric restriction in humans include greatly reduced energy and loss of sex drive and sometimes hair loss and most certainly does NOT double life expectancy.

    Authors of Coenzyme Q10 Longevity Study Targeted!

    It is a fact that no diet of any kind or lack of diet will double lifespan! The activity level of the oldest animals in the Coenzyme Q10 longevity study was reportedly equal to that of the youngest! This is totally covered up! See below. Covered up also is the fact that the 2 Principal Investigators on Coenzyme Q10 have been targeted. Karl Folkers, who first synthesized Coenzyme Q10 and the former Chairman of the yearly International Symposium on the BioMedical and Clinical Aspects of Coenzyme Q10 was apparently murdered on his return from Sweden in 1997 after chairing the most recent conference. His colleague Emile A. Bliznakov, M.D., the author of the highly suppressed book “Miracle Nutrient Coenzyme Q10,” who has sent this writer documentation that he is being paid off not to write a second edition (!), is in hiding in Pompano Beach, Florida. Karl Folkers was 91 years old but he sounded strong and as healthy as a horse when this writer spoke to him just before he left to chair that 1997 conference! Folkers told this writer he was taking a daily dose of 200 mg of CoQ10. No cause of death was given, which is totally unprecedented given the fact that he was the point man for CoQ10 and longevity, He was undoubtedly given a CIA “heart attack.”

    This was also the fate of a significant percentage of eyewitnesses to the John Kennedy Assassination in Dealey Plaza, eighteen of whom were dead within 3 years. As a notation at the end of the 1973 Film “Executive Action” stated: “In the three years after the murders of John F. Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald eighteen material witnesses died, 6 by gunfire, 3 by motor accidents, 2 by suicide, 1 by a cut throat, 1 by a karate chop to the neck, 3 by heart attacks, 2 from natural causes. An actuary engaged by the London Sunday Times (Lloyds of London) concluded: On November 22, 1963, the odds of all those witnesses being dead by Feb. 1967 are one hundred thousand trillion to one.” The CIA heart attack is also described in the movie “The Parallax View.” Assassination is all part of routine U.S. capitalist “statecraft,” which is carried out by the facetiously designated so-called “Wet Section.” (Blood!) So very funny!

    The Capitalists Intend to try to Use Obama and the Democratic Majority in Congress to Run a
    Full Court Press to Try to Outlaw the Majority of Dietary Supplements, Especially Megadosing
    Of Antioxidants Because Antioxidants Have Been Demonstrated in Hundreds of Carefully
    Controlled Scientific Studies Over Decades to be Beneficial in Cancer, Heart Disease and to
    Extend Human Lifespan by up to 30% or more! Coenzyme Q10 has been found to Double Life
    Span in Experimental Animals with Activity Level of the Oldest Animals equal to the Youngest!

    Using their false guise as “the friend of the people” and the “peoples’ protector,” the capitalist dictatorship of millionaires and billionaires also intends to use the Surgeon General to front the false propaganda campaign attacking dietary supplements and the Democratic control of Congress to try to abolish the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, which has allowed the U.S. masses to extend their life span and quality of life through taking dietary supplements. In addition to waging both economic and biological warfare against the masses in order to reduce the population by bringing people to an earlier death (see below), the capitalists intend to implement the Codex Alimentarius, a United Nations protocol adopted by many countries including the United States and all countries of the European Union, which abolishes in some cases and severely restricts in others the right of people to take herbs and dietary supplements, especially megadoses of antioxidants, which have shown to be beneficial in cancer, heart disease and to extend lifespan of experimental animals up to 40%. As mentioned above, Coenzyme Q10, is documented to double the mean life expectancy of experimental animals, with the activity level of the oldest animals equal to that of the youngest. (Coenzyme Q, the Immune System and Aging by Emil G. Bliznakov, 1981 Elsevier/North Holland Biomedical Press.) Coenzyme Q10 is found in all cells of the body; low amounts are associated with aging and disease states of bioenergetics from congestive heart failure (CHF) to several types of cancer. Hundreds of scientific papers are deliberately hidden by publishing them all together in such totally obscure journals such as the Clinical Investigator and Molecular Aspects of Medicine, but only rarely in mainstream medical journals. Both CHF and metastatic breast cancer in women, e.g., are completely reversed with megadoses of CoQ10! This is covered up and downplayed even by the dietary supplement industry because after any ban on antioxidants, etc. they want to sell a lot more than just CoQ10! (See below.)

    The Codex Alimentarius Bans Dietary Supplements!

    The so-called World Trade Organization (WTO) has adopted the Codex Alimentarius and in 2004 abolished virtually all dietary supplements in the Europe Union (EU) through the European Food Supplement Directive, although it is still supposedly being fought in the courts primarily by fake “opposition” in those EU countries by pathetically going through the motions. WTO regulations specify that no member country can have a law which is in conflict with a WTO regulation, and on that basis and the recently concocted false claims based on entirely fraudulent “studies” and “reports” (see below) the United States government intends to try to abolish the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), approved by Congress under unanimous popular demand and to arbitrarily ban and/or severely restrict virtually all dietary supplements in the United States under Obama! In the United States the Democrats were initially chosen by the capitalists to try to overturn the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 because their constituency trusts the Democrats slightly more than the Republicans due to the Democrats’ previous historical support of the New Deal and Social Programs, support which polls document has largely eroded and which exists now largely for demagogic purposes of deceiving the masses as Obama’s daily demagogy demonstrates. In 2003 the Democrats introduced the so-called Dietary Supplement “Safety” Act (S.722), the purpose of which is to essentially act as a first step to gradually render void the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA).

    S.722 defined “adverse dietary supplement experience” as “an adverse event that is associated with the use of a dietary supplement in a human, without regard to whether the event is known to be causally related to the dietary supplement.” (!) This employs clumsy false post hoc ergo propter hoc reasoning and was done in order to provide the basis for the false claims later reported by the FDA American Association of Poison Control Centers in the New York Times (see below). Because of the widespread public protest against that pending legislation and in order for the FDA to build up a “data base” of false reports (see below) actual passage of that legislation was put on hold until the Democrats again took control of Congress. After the Democrats’ “victory” in the 2006 Midterm elections, the Democrats, in order to insure “bipartisan support” and easier passage by the Fascist Usurper Bush (see further below), chose Republicans Peter Roskam (R-IL) and Charles Grassley (R-IA), backed by Durbin and McCain, to start the ball rolling by introducing bills (H.R. 1249 and S.762) in order to try falsely classify DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) as an anabolic steroid and controlled substance, which according to definition in the U.S government’s own Medline Medical Dictionary, it is neither.

    In January 2007 the FDA American Association of Poison Control Centers released a completely fraudulent Big Lie so-called “national data base” entirely constructed of whole cloth, which falsely claimed “1.6 million adverse reactions (!), 125,595 poisonings (!) and 230 deaths (!) due to dietary supplements from 1983 to 2004” (!) (See: The New York Times “Science Section”, January 16, 2007 and CBS Nightly News with Miss Goody Two Shoes, Katie Couric, January 15, 2007), when the reality is that there have been NO DEATHS WHATSOEVER directly caused by taking dietary supplements alone!

    Only on February 2, 2007, 2 weeks later, did an obscure “Correction” appear on the bottom of page F6 of the New York Times so-called “Science Section,” stating that the previously reported number of “poisonings” referred only to reported “exposures” (!) and that the “National Poison Control database “does not even have a category for poisoning incidents!” “Exposures!” (!) That sounds almost as bad! The database then claims that all it does report is the category of “exposures and adverse reactions for various dietary supplements, which are not defined nor verified as being caused by dietary supplements!” This is the actual contrived, fraudulent “definition” in the S. 722 legislation! (See above.) The entire incident—releasing the initial Big Lie report designed as a provocation to terrorize and confuse the maximum number of people and raise the fear level of dietary supplements, which is then followed by the obscure retraction (“correction”) which few people see, is a standard media technique used to brainwash the masses used in all areas of politics in addition to dietary supplements.

    Actually the lone death due to vitamins intake up to 1994 was due to Vitamin A due to eating Polar Bear liver—not vitamin pills! In 2003 it was covered up by the media but later blipped briefly that the death of Baltimore Orioles pitcher Steve Belcher, which was supposedly due to taking the herb Ephedra was actually due to heat stroke when he collapsed with a core temperature of 106 degrees Fahrenheit in Florida. Belcher had a previous history of heat stroke in high school, which heightens the probability of reoccurrences; he was overweight, unfit and unacclimatized. He also had pre-existing hypertension and liver problems and had a family history of sudden death from exercise (his half-brother died at age 20 of an aneurysm while playing baseball). He had not eaten solid food for 2 days to try to lose weight and took 3 capsules every morning, which could not possibly have raised the core body temperature to 106. This fraud is all the U.S. government could come up with up until 2003 to attack dietary supplements as “dangerous” and now we are asked to suspend disbelief in yet another Big Lie with their false claim of 230 deaths due to dietary supplements! The truth is that dietary supplements alone have caused NO deaths whatsoever!

    Such information on claimed “deaths” due to “dietary supplement poison” would have been released on the spot whenever they occurred if they had actually occurred, but they did not occur, and the U.S. government knows that they did not occur. There is a zero mortality rate for dietary supplement versus prescription drugs which kill over 100,000 people in the U.S. alone every year due to known “side effects.” But the Codex Alimentarius is NOT really being implemented merely for drug company profits or control, but for political/demographic objectives to bring an increasing number of the population to an earlier death by depriving the masses of dietary supplements which keep them healthy and extend their life in that part of the world where there is no overt starvation, but where a significant percentage of people are forced to eat McDonalds and other fast food garbage. On the other hand no diet alone, restriction diet or otherwise, will double lifespan. (See further below.) Media focus on caloric restriction diets is for the sole purpose of diverting attention from megadoses of antioxidants, especially Coenzyme Q10, combined with interval training and no meat in the diet and the daily inclusion of oatmeal, an approach which can indeed double lifespan.

    The legislation known as the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) attracted the greatest citizen/constituent input of any legislation for that year, and since. That input by the U.S. population overwhelmingly supported the right of Americans to take dietary supplements without undue interference and regulation of the FDA and or control by the pharmaceutical industry or any other government agency. Prior to and in support of passage of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act in 1994 this writer, a physician and medical researcher by training, sent all 535 Members of Congress a copy of a review paper he authored on antioxidants based on the review of over 330 papers and abstracts. Library research by this writer revealed 2 bodies of literature in one! The overwhelming majority of research papers for over 50 years have supported the use of antioxidants in heart disease, cancer and longevity. However, a tiny number of papers all written by the same small group of individuals ruthlessly attacked antioxidants. The conclusions asserted in this latter group of papers were clearly unsupported, faulty on numerous bases, unquestionably biased and false and deliberately fraudulent. Vitamin C and Vitamin E, were demonstrated in the overwhelming majority of papers to be able to increase mean life span by up to 30% or more and Coenzyme Q-10 doubled mean life expectancy in one paper, as mentioned above This writer has been taking megadoses of antioxidants ever since he has been 14 years old and today looks over 20 years younger than his 68 years. Based on his findings and comprehensive review of the literature on antioxidants and his own personal experience in 2004 this writer requested and was effectively denied the right to appear before the Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions and Commerce Committee and give testimony concerning that legislation sponsored by Senators Durbin, McCain, Clinton, Harkin, Feinstein and Schumer.

    Campaign Uses Multiple Fraudulent “Studies”
    To Falsely Discredit Dietary Supplements!

    In order to provide a false pretext and provide a fraudulent momentum to try to ban megadoses of antioxidants and restrict the use of DHEA and herbs and other dietary supplements taken by millions of people the capitalists have carried out in the last several years a series of large heavily hyped but mostly deliberately uncontrolled deliberately fraudulent studies on older populations with multiple organ disease, which did not use properly significant amounts of antioxidants and other dietary supplements. These studies heavily-hyped by the capitalist media were deliberately contrived Frauds—not “flawed” or “Dangerously Dumb” as falsely claimed by the loyal, fake opportunist so-called “opposition,” such as Julian Whitaker, Gary Null, Stephen Sinatra, William Falloon, etc. terms which are deliberately designed to attribute good faith to those medical Fascists who carry out such deliberately fraudulent extremely large and virtually totally uncontrolled Studies.” These fake opposition figures from Julian Whitaker to Gary Null to the obsequious William Falloon of “Life Extension,” who have written well-documented articles and even books supporting the use of dietary supplements, are all part of the capitalist system and all want their piece of the pie if the U.S. government actually succeeds in banning dietary supplements. These scoundrels who go through the motions of “opposition” are just as guilty as the politicians and drug companies, who want to ban dietary supplements. Gary Null, Julian Whitaker, Stephen Sinatra and William Falloon are millionaire capitalists themselves or their front men and calculate that they will still be able to sell whatever useless items the capitalists still might permit to be sold if the government succeeds in banning megadose antioxidants and other dietary supplements!

    Despite the fact that the dietary supplement industry has deliberately omitted all mention of the primary political/demographic (population reduction) motive for the capitalists’ attacks on dietary supplements, Life Extension and Health and Healing have published excellent referenced refutations of the various fraudulent “studies” attacking antioxidants and other dietary supplements. For example see: The capitalists are attempting to set the stage to ban dietary supplements one after the other on the bases of these contrived, clumsily fraudulent so-called “studies,” which have attacked virtually every major dietary supplement with the Big Lie conclusion that they are either useless or even dangerous! See above! See also the ridiculous Wall Street Journal, March 20, 2006, full front page/2 page broadside in the B Section falsely labeled “The Case Against Vitamins.” Even more absurd was the fraudulent claim that “Low-Fat Diet Does Not Cut Health Risks Study Finds,” front page New York Times, February 8, 2006, where the studies participants maintained a 29% fat level in their diet while controls maintained a statistically insignificant 35%. (!) Talk about fraudulent studies!

    The Escalating Drumbeat to Falsely Discredit Dietary Supplements
    Continues With the Attack on the So-Called “Dirty Dozen!”

    On August 2, 2010 the capitalist dictatorship launched a massive high profile media attack against 10 different herbs plus Germanium and Colloidal Silver. The truth is that herbs are rarely-to-never taken without knowledge of their effects gained either from books on herbology or alternative medical practitioners. In addition, herbs are taken in small amounts and despite the claims of morbidity from taking the herbs on the “FDA’s “dirty dozen” list there have been no deaths. On the other hand, as mentioned below prescription drugs actually kill over 100,000 people each year in the United States alone!! Yet the FDA continues to grants approval to these poisons masquerading as medicines. In the TV advertisements the drug companies are now required to list the side effects of their phony death dealing so-called “medicines.” Those who read what appears there on a backdrop of supposedly contented patients (tra la la!) should be rightly scared half to death.

    The truth is that the herbs improve the health of a vast number of people without the side effects of prescription drugs which are far worse and which often include suicide and other fatal side effects. GERMANIUM, for example, extends lifespan and does for a fact strengthen the immune system. COLLOIDAL SILVER is effective for a wide range of ailments. Naturally the FDA wants to ban it. KAVA is an excellent anti-anxiety and sleep medication (with no fatal side effects!) But already KAVA is banned in Europe is due to the implementation of the Codex Alimentarius there. Europe also bans megadoses of antioxidants, etc! (See above.) YOHIMBE is an excellent aphrodisiac but it as a competitor of Viagra, Cialis and Levitra. The side effects of Yohimbe are inconsequential in comparison to the side effect of the prescription drugs which can cause PRIAPISM, an erection lasting more than 4 hours which is due to clotting of blood in the penis. This can in result in permanent loss of function and in rare cases necessitate AMPUTATION!!!! Priapsim does not occur with Yohimbe. The capitalists are in control and have simply banned the competition based on a false pretext. The capitalist dictatorship wants to reduce the overall population in the United States and naturally wants to eliminate anything such as dietary supplements which genuinely makes people healthier or live longer. Reducing the population was a primary objective of the so-called Obama Healthcare Overhaul which cut over $500 billion from Medicare/Medicaid, turns all of healthcare over to the insurance industry and does not take full effect until after 3 years when most of those who passed it, against 58% opposition of the American people (!), will be long gone. Note that Medicare took effect THE VERY NEXT DAY after it was passed by Congress because it genuinely improved peoples’ health! “Obamacare” is designed to increase healthcare rationing to such a degree that people have their healthcare requests for tests and treatment denied so often and to such a degree that eventually they do not even attempt to see a physician when they are sick, but wait until they are at or near death. (See above.)

    The attack on the so-called “dirty dozen” health supplements means that the capitalist dictatorship is intensifying the attack on dietary supplements and megadose antioxidants and may decide to use EXECUTIVE DECREE to enforce compliance with the Codex Alimentarius as in Europe where there was no DSHEA. The Obama regime has already used Executive Decree to permanently end the Social Security Cost of Living Allowance in order to abolish the FUNCTION of Social Security, which is to keep older people alive. Note that a Federal District Court easily overturned Obama’s stem cell Executive Decree which supposedly opened up more stem cell lines for research. News reports made no mention that the ruling would even be appealed.

    Although the analysis of dietary supplements might appear to be a small issue in comparison with the other matters analyzed here it is significant in that it demonstrates that capitalism is fundamentally based on war and mass murder and crime at every level and will leave no stone unturned in expression of that dialectic and furthermore demonstrates that only a Socialist Revolution in the United States can permanently end such threats to peoples’ security at every level and guarantee a world with a sustainable future unlike capitalism, which guarantees a world with no future. Under capitalism all news is bad news. Today we live in a bureaucratic, military police state, a step short of Fascism known as Rule by Decree, which is a form of Bonapartism, as in Napoleon Bonaparte. Capitalism is presently in its Final Stage of Permanent War and State Terrorism. Today 95% of New Yorkers and presumably the majority of Americans agree given the choice that we need a new system based on human need not private profit. That means Socialism, and because of the one-way dynamic (development sequence) of capitalism, which is entirely independent of the wills of the capitalists and politicians themselves and which leads to Fascism, barbarism and finally the end of civilization, capitalism cannot be turned into Socialism. This means that capitalism cannot be reformed. Therefore we need a Socialist Revolution in the United States. The capitalist dictatorship rules by a combination of force and deception. Therefore, a Socialist Revolution can only be carried out by first disarming the capitalists and simultaneously exposing their primary weapon of deception, the Presidential “elections” and all elections by extension under capitalism, all of which perpetuate the number one Big Lie of capitalism, namely that capitalism can be reformed, which it cannot because of the above-described dynamic. Disarming the capitalists is thus the precondition for carrying out a Socialist Revolution in the United States as it was in Russia in 1917! Disarming the capitalist dictatorship is accomplished by calling for MUTINY in all U.S. armed forces in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, etc (the U.S. has a military presence in 130 countries) as in Vietnam, the real reason and the ONLY reason the Vietnam War ended in 1975! Because it was not led by Communists the immediate evacuation of all U.S. forces from Vietnam in days and hours quelled that mutiny.. Today the call for MUTINY must come from stateside and can only take place if it is organized by a genuine Communist Party, which must be built. Organization is dealt with elsewhere.


    In the background is also the matter of Vaccinosis. Vaccinosis is a clinical syndrome which results from multiple, repeated, bivalent or polyvalent vaccination and is expressed in 2 ways: 1.) Cancer, where the immune system is weakened, and 2.) Autoimmune Disease, where the immune system is damaged in a way that causes the body to attack itself. An example of the latter includes autism in children. While vaccination against Polio and tetanus, along with Rubella vaccination especially for girls so they do not develop German measles during pregnancy, all may be justified and have not been generally associated with an increased amount of autoimmune disease or cancer, Autism in children is indeed associated with the increased vaccination of children for childhood diseases (especially with polyvalent vaccines) including mumps, measles, chickenpox and whooping cough, which heretofore always provided immunity for life in an era when there was virtually no autism! And the increased amount of autism has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with “previous failure to diagnose or previous misdiagnosis” of that condition, which is a deliberately concocted pretext by the perpetrators of the increased rate of autism: the capitalist dictatorship of millionaires and billionaires and the pharmaceutical companies. That is clearly the case today with multiple and polyvalent vaccinations of children and everyone else for every conceivable organism except the organisms which cause pandemics which the U.S.-led Biowarfare criminals want to employ to reduce specific populations (AIDS) or the population in general. The H1N1 “Swine Flu” and the H5N1 Bird Flu are examples. The coming next wave of the so-called “H1N1 Swine Flu,” will probably be a variant of the 1918 Spanish Flu Virus and has nothing to do with swine except for those employed by the U.S. Department of Biowarfare. In the fall of 2009 the capitalist dictatorship decided to put a temporary hold on this second wave of Swine Flu due to the fact that U.S. masses which are targeted for large-scale population reduction (extermination), showed that they did not even trust their dictatorship enough to be vaccinated against the common flu, much less the Swine Flu. The fact that the overwhelming majority of parents now understand that the so-called “childhood vaccinations” for Mumps, Measles and Rubella are the direct cause of autism in genetically susceptible individuals also has helped build a healthy fear of unneeded vaccinations! So, it was decided to try to accomplish the population reduction by using the Economic Crisis/Depression as a weapon to wage economic warfare against the masses to bring down the living standard and reduce the population in accordance with the requirements of Globalism—competition worldwide among the capitalists for the lowest salaried workers. They accomplish this through false claims of “required austerity to correct the budget deficit,” rather than simply instituting a Progressive Tax Structure and using the standard capitalist solution of Keynesian Deficit Spending to create jobs which stimulate DEMAND, the engine of the economy. The capitalists are doing everything possible to reduce demand in the economy by laying off and freezing salaries of government workers and supposedly relying on “Supply-Side/Bush-Obama Tax-Cut Economics,” explained by Ronald Reagan’s economic czar David Stockman as a sham with the objective of diverting money from social spending. In addition, U.S. Taxes are collected on only the first $106,800 of income rather than taxing ALL income with no exceptions. The top tax rate for millionaires and billionaires is only 27.9% but they do not even pay that. They pay the capital gains tax rate of 15% and sixty-six percent of U.S. businesses pay no tax at all. They’ve drained us dry!

    The Reconstructed 1918 Spanish Influenza Pandemic Virus with Slight Adaptations
    Is On Hand Ready to be Released as the “Second Wave of the Swine Flu!”

    The virus which caused the H1N1 1918 Spanish Flu has recently been dug up, sequenced, restructured and tested and found to be suitably virulent for reduction of the so-called “population demographic.” See Terrence M. Tumpey et al, in the October 7, 2005 Science: “Characterization of the Reconstructed 1918 Spanish Influenza Pandemic Virus.” The capitalist dictatorship of millionaires and billionaires has decided to temporarily delay “the next wave” of Swine Flu and have also decided to put “on hold” a world Avian Flu (Bird Fly) Pandemic at the present time, preferring for now to employ economic war alone to bring the masses to an earlier death while denying that as the obvious motive for their actions! But those population reduction options are still on the table for the future! In the meantime the U.S. government deliberately continues with these life-shortening multiple and polyvalent vaccinations for the very same reason that they are have designed a World Pandemic Swine Flu Virus—to bring people to an earlier death—to “solve the overpopulation demographic” in the capitalist way. See Materialist Analysis of the Obama Regime, Part I. It should be noted that routine Smallpox vaccination was halted in 1972 when it was claimed the risks of complications from the vaccination outweighed the threat of the disease. In 1982 Anthony Fauci, head of NIAID and Director of the U.S. Department of Biological Warfare, and presently the world’s Number One Biowarfare Criminal, who has also insinuated himself as the Editor of Harrison’s Textbook of Internal Medicine in order to censor all articles on basic medical practice. At this time he is still editor. Fauci also blocked development of the Panicalli/Paoletti Recombinant Vaccine for genital herpes in 1981 under the false pretext that the risk of meningitis from the vaccinia-based recombinant vaccine was “so great” its use was contraindicated. But the vaccinia-based Smallpox vaccine had been used previously to vaccinate hundreds of millions of people worldwide for generations and eliminated the scourge of Smallpox with very few side effects and very few fatalities.

    The U.S. government has meanwhile gone to great lengths to prevent development of an effective AIDS vaccine, first permitting work to be carried out only on vaccines which use the AIDS envelope lipoprotein. The U.S. government (NIH) refuses any funding of an AIDS vaccine which utilizes the viral RNA itself under the false pretext that the vaccine might infect people. This is despite the fact that deleting the SOR gene makes it impossible for the virus to replicate and would permit use of virtually all of the AIDS RNA to be used in the vaccine, minus the SOR gene. This would make an extremely effective recombinant vaccine but BioWarfare Criminal Anthony Fauci, & Co. and the U.S. Department of Biological Warfare do not permit that to occur. The field of AIDS vaccine “research” has been deliberately misled by various red herrings and presently degenerated into multiple dead ends such as the most recent studies of “new neutralizing monoclonal antibodies.” Previously the “intelligence community” has sidetracked research with the V520 vaccine which contained a weakened adenovirus (an adenovirus—a cold virus—seriously!?) which supposedly “produced T cells to kill HIV-infected cells.” Right! That “vaccine” and others like it were a ridiculous joke and resulted in total failure but it was good for a several year delay!

    To take it to the ridiculous, on February 22, 2006 the falsely named Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s immunization advisory committee has now recommended (by unanimous vote—no disagreement is tolerated in this club!) that all children between 6 months and 5 years old should be vaccinated against influenza. That means every child in this age group may be compelled to undergo flu vaccination every year! Look for an enormous increase in autoimmune disease and cancer in those who receive these vaccinations, which of course are to be added to the other vaccinations they are now sometimes forced to receive as mentioned above! See below. The claim that 153 children in this age group died in 2003-2004 from flu is a false argument for vaccination when they do not describe the circumstances of those deaths and other complicating factors, which could have contributed to the fatal outcomes, and when they know that a far higher percentage will go on to develop life-shortening autoimmune disease and cancer as current statistics also reveal! Which happens to be the population reduction objective of the ever-hardening capitalist dictatorship! Recall that the so-called Center for Disease Control is where the capitalists brag in the March 23, 2005 Wall Street Journal that they have created their human-to-human strain of the H5N1 Bird Flu virus and the Reconstructed 1918 Spanish Flu virus.

    In a Clumsy Act of Desperation to Try to Intimidate the Masses to Accept Vaccination
    The Capitalist Dictatorship has Launched a Full-Scale Big Lie Media Attack Against the
    First Researcher who Documented that Munps Measles and Rubella Vaccines Directly
    Cause Autism in Genetically Susceptible Children! Methinks They Protest Too Much!

    In 2007 Autism was found in every 150 children (!), according to ABC News, November 1, 2007. The New York Times, December 18, 2009 reported that figure has now increased: approximately so that one in a hundred 8-year old children now have autism, Asperger’s Syndrome or pervasive developmental disorder, otherwise known as autism spectrum disorders (ASD)! The most bizarre response of the capitalist dictatorship to “bar Dr. Andrew J. Wakefield from practicing medicine in Britain,” (Associated Press, May 24, 2010) and the full-scale media attack launched through the discredited British Medical Journal January 6, 2011, simply reemphasizes his importance and the widespread recognition that the mumps, measles and Rubella vaccinations of children ARE THE CAUSE OF AUTISM! In February 2009, after 12 years (!), the capitalist dictatorship and pharmaceutical companies finally forced the retraction of Andrew Wakefield’s 1998 article in the British medical journal, The Lancet, which first conclusively documented multiple developmental disorders in children directly associated with receiving primarily polyvalent vaccination for mumps, measles and rubella, including: autism 75%, disintegrative psychosis (one child), possible postviral or vaccinal encephalitis (two children) plus all had ”intestinal abnormalities ranging from lymphoid nodular hyperplasia similar to that found in Crohn’s Disease (an autoimmune disease) to aphthoid ulcertion.” Note: One child had received monovalent measles vaccine. [Citation: “Ileal-lymphoid hyperplasia, non-specific colitis, and pervasive developmental disorder in children,” The Lancet, Vol. 351, Issue 9103, February 28, 1998.] Wakefield’s only error was in not waiting a wee bit longer and publishing a study which included a much, much larger number of patients. Today there are 1.8 million children with autism in the United States and a comparable number as a percentage of the population in the UK and wherever the MMR vaccines are administered, with an annual increase of 20% in new cases in the US!

    The smear campaign against Wakefield makes it appear as if he is the only person who has made the direct cause and effect association between childhood vaccinations in children and the sudden appearance of autism in children, when in fact that is the opinion of the overwhelming majority of those objective individuals who have examined the issue. The truth is that the parents of the children who have been handed a diagnosis of autism along with the MMR trivalent vaccination of their children made the association without any assistance whatsoever from Dr. Andrew Wakefield whose paper merely confirmed their already firm beliefs! The medical establishment is in complete unethical alliance with the drug companies as documented above and herein and of course lines up against Wakefield and the parents and their children! The false claim that childhood vaccinations such as MMR do NOT cause autism is another textbook example of the Big Lie Technique and readers should review the explanation provided above. Note that it did not take too hefty a bribe or too many threats both of which were indubitably utilized to cause 10 of the original 13 authors of Wakefield’s paper to now “denounce” both the paper and Wakefield. Note: there were 13 authors of that paper and they all fully supported its methods and conclusions.
    The capitalists’ so-called “intelligence community” believes that it may be able to intimidate parents to accept the TOTALLY UNNECESSARY VACCINATIONS of their children by “taking down” Dr. Andrew Wakefield. But that is NOT going to happen! No matter what they do they canl NOT destroy his credibility! The capitalists’ so-called “intelligence community” has pulled out all the stops in targeting Dr. Andrew Wakefield, using a Rupert Murdoch (Fox News, NY Post, Wall Street Journal, London Times, etc.) stooge who has been assigned to try to discredit Wakefield since 2003! The hugely discredited British Medical Journal, January 5, 2011, began the attack by publishing a false but heavily hyped hatchet job on Wakefield which was later synopsized in the New York Times (January 6, 2011), etc. and reported on CNN (Anderson Cooper 360!) and of course Fox News! The capitalists believe that if they can get parents to accept the MMR vaccination then that can be used to try to further intimidate the U.S. masses to get “vaccinated” against Swine Flu, or for whatever they say whenever they say, which is an important step in getting the masses to accept their own widespread slaughter as part of U.S. Biowarfare operations. Simultaneously the U.S. Department of Biological Warfare and U.S. pharmaceutical industry, which work closely together, are presently organizing the drug store chains to carry out a “Get a Flu Vaccine Shot” campaign carried out e.g. in Walgreens and Duane Reade and right out onto the city streets in a HARD SELL scare campaign!

    Articles in various medical journals pretend to be concerned about “what possibly could be the cause” of such an increase in autism, but then cite no credible reason and disavow childhood vaccinations as the obvious cause! (Scientists Remain “Baffled by Increase in Autism!) Right, sure! Also, the truth is that the mercury preservatives in vaccines may aggravate autism, but are definitely not the main cause. It is the vaccinations themselves. This was proved when the so-called “intelligence community” organized groups of parents to insist that it was “that mercury (alone) in the preservatives” which caused autism. This is an example of straw man disinformation. When it was easily proved that eliminating the mercury from the vaccines did not decrease the astronomical increase in autism, which continued, then the whole argument that vaccines cause autism was supposed to collapse “like a straw man.” But it did not collapse and the focus properly fell on the vaccines themselves not the mercury! Today it is widely recognized that vaccines alone cause autism in children, especially multiple, bivalent and trivalent vaccinations! In another desperate attempt to discredit the truth and reality the capitalist dictatorship is trying to make it appear as if the entire case rests on one person and one research paper, WHICH THEY REFUSE TO REPRINT so that people can make their own choice. Instead the media prints long screeds and rants by a journalist (!) not a physician or a researcher, attacking the Wakefield paper and the author, which are published in the British Medical Journal. (!) Oy! This is yet another clumsy attempt to employ the straw man method of trying to falsely discredit obvious cause and effect. Supposedly by attacking Wakefield, the author of the first paper, who is a well-known proponent of the association of childhood vaccinations and autism, then the reality of cause and effect will supposedly just disappear! It does not disappear and it does not compute! Note that autoimmune disease is also very easy to see in cats and dogs incidentally. The pharmaceutical industry recommends vaccination on a yearly basis usually consisting of a combination trivalent vaccinations for feline distemper (panleukopenia), rhinotracheitis and calicivirus, etc. and most veterinarians sheepishly and unethically comply with this horrible and murderous “advice.”

    The majority of cats begin to develop either cancer or autoimmune disease like clockwork. For example, a high percentage of cats begin to develop symptoms of autoimmune disease or cancer or leukemia and die when they are about 11 to13 years old or even before. Dogs and cats should have only ONE such vaccination and no repeats! And the overwhelming majority of Veterinarians many of whom know about vaccinosis, go along with yearly vaccinations because 1.) yearly combination vaccinations bring in customers, 2) they get paid for treating the diseases caused by vaccinosis (!) and 3.) they are simply unethical and take their lead from the capitalist system itself which is doing the same thing to humans, where the result of increased profits of the pharmaceutical industry parasites and decreased life span is also the objective, not simply a consequence! The recent February 12, 2009 false “decision” (!) by the U.S. Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C. that vaccines don’t cause autism is just more cover-up of cause and effect, which has been firmly documented and continues to be documented every day: childhood vaccination is the chief cause of autism in those who are genetically susceptible. A good reference to learn about Vaccinosis is Pitcairn is the well-known Veterinarian/author who has worked in research and private practice for years. Also check vaccinosis on your search engine.

  75. Inspirational Stories to help you get through the rough times – at

    Matt is now 25, but 23 years ago they slapped a moderate to severe autism diagnosis on him. No one would do that now as he is high functioning. It was a hard road – and still is at times, but look at what can be accomplished; graduated #4 in his class and with honors.

  76. My son is 17 years old with a diagnosis made by a Neuropsychologist of Aspergers. Since he was 6 he was on psychotropic meds to control his anger and extreme behavior issues. He’s had spec ed from Early Intervention all through High School. Recently we “accidentally” came across something that has helped him so much we’re pulling him off meds and his mood and behavior are way better than they were on the meds, with Anger Management Therapy, etc. We tried a product discovered by the Volcani Institute in Israel, a super high powered Omega-3 made from Sage seeds on which the Israel holds the patent. We got it for his eczema. As his skin started to clear up, so did his moods. We asked him what was going on and he just said “I feel happy.” We tried to pull him off his meds 2 weeks before, but we had to put him back on due to his returning feeling of anger and depression. He’s on 6 pills of MARVALOUS Omega-3 and has had 5 successful meds reductions and is about to embark on his 6th. He’s happy, connective, and social for the first time. I hear it may not work for everyone if their body cannot convert ALA into EPA and DHA,. My other 2 kids have ADD and this dramatically improves their focus.. It isn’t cheap and you can’t get it in stores or online. The Volcani Institute has done a lot of research on this for the past 7 years and only formed the company to commercially produce it since 2009. A lot of research focuses on how much it improves brain function in Alzheimers and other disorders. There is no official data on autism, but anecdotally, we see a HUGE improvement in our son and friends with kids on the spectrum are seeing it as well. We became distributors because we buy it in such bulk.We have tried a lot of things and this non-toxic oil has been a blessing. I am on a mission to spread the word on this one. I’ll send you links and you’ll decide. We are ecstatic.

      • So how, where, and how much are these pills? Do you know if young children can take them as well? My daughter is 5 and has severe anger, frustration, anxiety, and behavioral problems. At this point we are trying everything we know to do therapy wise, but always willing to try something new.

  77. Just started my blogging adventure. Can’t wait to read through some of the other blogs listed on here.

  78. Hmm How to start… Well I am the mother of a beautiful 5 year old daughter with autism. I came to the web and this blog today to try to find some help, and advice from my fellow piers. I feel like the doctors are the ones with the degree’s but yet no one can seem to give me an answer that makes my “maternal instinct” feel at ease. I am looking for a parent that when you read this you say, that sounds all to familiar. Please I need guidance, I do not know where to start or which turn to take.

    This is my situation. Kourtney (my daughter) is non-verbal, with high frustration and anxiety. Along with the usual paragraph of diagnois’. Since about the third week of November Kourtney seemed like she was getting a cold. Which seemed normal enough due to her PICA. But then she started showing symptoms of the stomach flu. I took her to the pediatrician and she said of course, viral. It will go away in a week or so. It took a good 2 weeks. Ever since that time Kourtney seems to be fine during the day, but is still vomiting in the middle of the night. Still! We are now in february, I just took her to the doctor again on Tuesday (3rd time) to once again express my concerns. Doctors seems to think its normal! Her explanation to me: Well because she is in school and her pica disorder, it is not uncommon for a child to repeatably get sick. She said consider the average common cold takes 7 to 10 days to get over. Its a bad process.
    The thing is, is that she won’t throw up during the day, only at night (at am hours) and not every night, maybe every other night. I am so confused and well just have no explanation. Someone recently told me to take her to childrens hospital. Okay do I take her to childrens hospital LA or OC and does anyone know the difference. Once I get there what should I tell them, simply that I think there is something medically wrong with my little girl and no one will listen or even check her for anything other than a common cold. I get so tired of “a-typical” people looking at me like Im crazy, I just want someone to just listen for once! Aghhh!!

    Anyhow, please, please, please- If anyone can try to point me in the right direction for what I need to do to help my little one and myself… Would truly be amazing.

  85. I just started a blog about my struggles and adventures with my son Treovr, who has classic autism. This blog is not super inforative although I know many specialists, schools, respite resources and have devoted hours and hours to reading and being informed about this illness. Its more a way for me to survive and keep a positive attitude about what we are going through. I have had do drift away from some important friendships and devote that time to my son and making his life better. This will hopefully help those friends understand how tricky autism is. I would also like to meet other parents of chilren with autism as well as people with autism in the community so that we can share our journeys together. If you are a parent with a newly diagnosed child and/or you are feeling scared or alone in all of this please write. I would love to be a listening ear and help to you. 🙂

Last year I learned of a company called Autism on the Seas on Facebook and immediately my husband was ready to go. After much debate, we booked our very first family vacation with them and I’m so glad we did. The Autism staff was amazing and our Group Director, Jamie Grover is a saint sent from heaven. We cannot wait to do this again in 2012. Thank you Autism on the Seas for providing such a wonderful service for family’s like mine.

    This is from my families own personal experiences,the autism community has some really disgusting people out there
    looking to prey on vulnerable persons and families like yourselves.Persons or groups of New-Agers and others that
    want to take money and you or spouse from already struggling families however they can. breaking families mentally,
    physically,emotionally and finacially.These people or groups will offer false hopes,promises of healing to you or children while destroying what is left.Beware of practices that are alternative,there is no substitute for a good doctor who cares knows you and your child, and the work put forth with love.Accept What God gave us and do the best you can.Through vulnerability i lost a wife,best friend,and the children are left with the shell of mother they once had,who works recruiting for the network or group.Reiki is a practice of the occult,and from what i had seen first hand the study of it includes occultic materials,REIKI IS FRAUDELENT,SO IS ENERGY HEALING.These practices offer
    nothing,a hit to your pocketbook,emptiness,false promises,and they will tell you whatever answers you are looking for to get you back.Please do not get sucked into self-help see a credited councellor if you need to,really it is o.k. to do so being a parent of a special needs child is extremely difficult in many aspects,as i found out just because someone claims to be a councellor does not make them accredited or a good person,please do your research thoroughly.
    Beware of Bizaar fliers,handouts,seminars or whatever else refers to you or your children beind Indigo People or Crystal Children,look into these materials to protect yourselves it is a recruiting tool. Research the special needs schools your child is attending,Low and behold these people are found working in them,and are waiting for oppurtunity for recruitment.Watch out for yoga and meditaion that is a means to suck you in,not saying its all bad,but be careful.It doesnt lead to chanting,out of body meditation,and eventually the demeaning of you by the group to separate you from your spouse for their benefit,I have experienced much more than is being put up here.This is being
    put up out of wholeheartedness as a means of awareness to protect you and your family from people with bad intentions,
    This family has lost a good woman,wife,and mother to be one of these people,a woman that used to have morals,values,
    and integrity it breaks my heart daily to have lost the best friend i married.It also breaks my heart that not everyone is going to get read this and more persons and families will suffer from it.

My son is 9 and severe, non-verbal – all I do is clean up after him constantly – constant accidents – peeing all over the seat in the bathroom & on the floor, mess with everything he eats, constant laundry -it’s exhausting. I also have a 4 year old typical girl – I’m constantly exhausted – I don’t work – luckily I’m married and my husband can support us – but just barely – but I find myself dreading that I won’t be able to get on with my life – career, etc. Like I’m meant to do this.

    Comment by chris — 25 Jul 11 @ 1418 | Reply

    • Chris, I feel for you SO much! I’m sure you have talked with the doctor that put your teen on the medication. Some can have “aggression” as a side effect. In the meantime, do you have your child’s name in any facility that could work with him/her? I will pray for help for you. Since looking into these blogs, I have a list of parents of/and autistic children to pray for. Our son had the same problem so I DO know what you are going through. He was only 13 and not yet full grown, but was STRONG. We had his name (for several years) in a facility, and he DID go to live there. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life, but it has turned out that he now has the best of both worlds. He can come home for visits (and does GREAT), and he gets the help he needs where he lives, and they can deal with it better than we could. We were afraid someone was going to get hurt, and had a younger child to consider (PLUS ourselves and an older daughter). I know you don’t have much time to do this, but if you can ever sneak a peek, go to, and my story is there in several postings that I hope will help you. God bless you! Carole Scott

  126. So often, parents with children on the spectrum feel isolated and overwhelmed. The ability to connect with others who are going through similar situations is the ultimate therapy. Blogging provides us an opportunity to “vent” about what is going on in our daily lives.

    Long story short, we are “just two moms” wanting to share our personal stories, and recycle and simplify information we have come across over the years…and maybe even help you feel that you are not alone.

    We are very new to the blogging world and are trying to figure out how it all works. A Ventography! is a work in progress and evolving daily. Please come check us out.

  129. For many parents of children afflicted with autism, the end of summer is also the end of a brief respite from the stress and rancor of battling school district officials and staff for appropriate accommodations for your child. It is, once again, time to meet the professionals who are entrusted with your autistic child’s future. Here’s some advice from a tortured, but ultimately victorious, mother who advocated for her child every single day, of every single year (living in a country with no laws protecting the disabled). This writer’s child did, indeed, graduate high school without being tracked, and ultimately received what she required (no thanks to the bureaucrats who obstructed every single, painful step of the way). Here are the eight rules this mother lived by:

    1) Know what your child needs
    Here’s where you need to do your homework. First, make sure that the privately funded professionals working with your child have a clear idea of a) your child’s needs and b) how the school district can fulfill those needs e.g. a full-time aide with expertise in ABA, or a part-time trained aide purely for recess and lunch. Your professional(s) need to commit this to paper in an Individual Education Plan – IEP, so that even before you approach the school district for the first time, you are ready to respectfully deliver your child’s requirements as prepared by your professional, autism treatment team.

    2) Keep a journal
    Keep a journal by your phone and in your car. Every time you talk with school officials about your child and his/her needs, write it down. Everything! You need to record every promise and every interaction, noting the time and date. Your child (and your lawyer if necessary) will appreciate this written log tremendously.

    3) Know your rights!
    If you live in the United States, you have a relatively easier task of securing your child’s educational rights because the federal legislation is quite clear, and there are many advocates available to educate parents. In addition, there are books that can help you get up to speed quickly. If you are not in the United States, make it a point to find out what your child’s rights are and please e-mail me with that information since I would very much like to share the information with international visitors to this blog.

    4) Acquire local knowledge
    Talk to other parents in your school district to get an impression as to how open or close-minded the school officials are when it comes to accommodating children with autism. In addition, find out what accommodations the school district has provided other parents (but never use that knowledge against those parents)!

    5) Never let them see you cry!
    Let me repeat that: Never let them see you cry! A popular technique honed by years of practice within the special education field is for the school “experts” to befriend you, and comfort you on how difficult your life must be with a child afflicted with autism (all the while not providing for your child). This technique works particularly well with parents who are prone to becoming emotionally upset, rather than angry, because their child’s needs are not being met.

    Remember, your job is not to make friends. They don’t even have to like you: they need to respect the fact that you know your child’s rights, and you will not compromise on what s/he requires. Be careful if they seem too fond of you.

    6) Do NOT use untoward language
    No matter how angry they make you feel, no matter how disrespectful they are of you, never get into a yelling match, and never use profanity (even though it may feel good at the time). Always keep your cool! One technique of incompetent special educators is to paint the parent as an unreasonable, unstable person. Then these employees can use standard regulations to bar the parent from the school grounds. Remember, everything you say may be used against you in a hearing or court proceeding.

    7) Get an advocate
    If you are not getting anywhere on your own, it is time to find an advocate to help you get your child’s needs met. The advocate’s involvement may force the principal to put the school system’s commitment in writing in a meaningful way. If you are not successful, even with the help of an advocate, then it is time for the next step!

    8) Put your lawyer on speed dial!
    Many parents think that they cannot afford a lawyer to protect their child’s rights. I agree that litigation is expensive; however, so is private school for the next twelve years! If your child is very young and the school is not providing what is either medically necessary for your child, in countries with socialized medicine, or a Fair and Appropriate Public Education in the Least Restrictive Environment – FAPE in the United States, think about the damage that can be done to your child… In some cases, a few well placed letters from a lawyer with expertise in autism case law will do the trick; however, you need to be prepared to go “all the way” since bureaucrats are expert at discerning bluff from true intent.

    You may be lucky and have a school district that is one step ahead of you, ready and eager to provide your child with an unbelievably great educational experience! I’m sure that there are several school districts that have already learned (sometimes rather begrudgingly) to accommodate children with autism; however, in case your school district is still operating based on a 1950s model, be prepared to blaze the trail. Your child’s future depends upon it!

  132. Hi there! This following post should help you. If you want the live links, you may have to go to the actual link at the bottom:

    Toilet Training is one of the first hurdles that a parent of a child with autism experiences either before, or soon after, the diagnosis. Many parents wonder if they will ever successfully toilet train their child. I have personally had this experience and can say with certainty that there is no reason that your child cannot be toilet-trained; however, it may take different skills from the ones that you already possess. Luckily, there are a couple of resources that will help you along the way.

    It is important for you to know that your child is either not toilet-trained because s/he doesn’t understand OR s/he understands but does not want to change a behavior that is already comfortable. Either way, you will need to use the same technique.

    The best method out there was pioneered by Nathin Azrin and Richard Foxx in 1971. They also wrote a book for typically developing children that is still available (Toilet Training in A Day); however, their work on toilet-training children with developmental delays is much more useful (yet difficult to source). Luckily, the legacy that they have left is in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis where practitioners can help you toilet train your child based on the techniques pioneered by Azrin and Foxx. You may be able to do this yourself; however, it is difficult!

    So, first I recommend finding a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) with expertise in autism and have them develop a program for your child (these professionals exist in every major city, in many small cities and towns in North America, & across the industrialized world).

    Screen shot 2011-08-09 at 4.32.44 PM

    In addition, there is a device that you can purchase to help you in your toilet-training program called the Night Hawk. It is a high tech wet alarm that works wirelessly and makes a loud sound. Although it is designed to be used at night, it can be used at all times to make your toilet training program more effective. We used a device similar to this before it was available for purchase (by rigging up a night time wet alarm to be mobile) and it took less than a day to solve this seemingly vexing problem!

    Screen shot 2011-08-09 at 4.30.12 PM

    It is very important that a child with autism be toilet-trained prior to entering kindergarten because a non-toilet-trained child will generally be stigmatized. Our goal was always to create a world where the child can participate as much as possible in the wonderful experiences that typically developing children are provided, and toilet-training is prerequisite to that.

    Good luck. I know that with expertise and perseverance you will succeed!

  138. Understanding what Autism is really not the problem. We have loads of information and research that has been completed and today we have a better focus and understanding on what we parents must follow to better communicate with our children on this issue. What we parents with Autism Children and Adults must figure out is how and why our children are turning Autism? Every parent knows why and how, they just have to figure it out without any outside help from any doctor or pediatrician. By knowing this information it can help future new mothers to be on what not to do or what to look for. Please – This message is to every parent with Autism Children – Think very hard while your children was growing – was there anything that you felt that was wrong at the time that maybe your pediatrician convince you otherwise? Please think hard, because I have information to the contrary.

  145. Kaiser Permanente performed a study published in July, 2011, which produced some alarming results. They suggested that exposure to SSRIs during the first trimester of pregnancy can increase the risk of the child developing ASD. It means that now, in addition to the regular risk of Zoloft and Paxil side effects, pregnant women must now make a difficult choice—continue to treat their depression, or stop taking antidepressants in order to protect their unborn children. Drug companies have a duty to disclose known risks as well as risks they should know about. Yet still despite the scientific studies that show Zoloft increases the risks of birth defects, the manufacturer of Zoloft (Pfizer) has failed to warn patients of this danger. In fact, the 2011 Zoloft label does not include information about an increased risk of birth defects.

    • You need to set up an Intensive Behavioral Treatment program for your child asap. If you don’t have the resources to pay for therapists, if you have a big family, close friends, or a religious community, get volunteers to comprise your team. What you do need is a behavioral consultant to customize the program to your child. If you go to my website, you will find lots of resources and books. In short, you need to become an expert in this quickly by reading the correct books that will give you a deep understanding of this treatment modality. I’ve personally known lots of parents without the resources who have helped their children through books, DVDs and true grit. Although it is difficult, you can give your child a future wherever you live! Good luck!

  185. Hi everybody ! I found that when I was looking for the Autism Awarenesse Month :

    Nowadays, in France, 650.000 individuals are affected by autism, and it goes up to 2 millions if you include their close family members…
    Condemned by the European Council in 2004, France is still very late in the area of research and adapted care for autism.

    With the promotional films called “Les Electeurs” (The Voters), VAINCRE L’AUTISME calls on the French government, the politicians and the public. Autistic people have been left for a long time on the fringe of society. They still suffer from legislative, political, administrative and social discriminations.

    VAINCRE L’AUTISME asks for a parliamentary commission to study autism in France, as well as an economic study on the cost of autism in France, and a specific legislation, adapted to the peculiarities of the autistic persons’ needs. VAINCRE L’AUTISME also stands up for the creation of the Autism General States, a moratorium against Packing and a ruling against unsuitable cares.

    In 2012, every French autistic individual and his/her family will take into account the politicians’ commitment before voting.

    The Orion Files is a set of videos that help young children with autism learn how to develop certain skills. Video modeling has proven to be an effective tool to teach skills for children with autism spectrum disorders. The research also shows that some of the most effective videos are when the subjects are of similar age. That’s where Orion comes in . . . who better than a four year old to teach other preschoolers?

  289. Often the first sign are marked by age 18 months which cause the parents to look for cure by the age of two. Kid may have no signs at all and also build up commonly until the age two or three and then all of a sudden they might show the signs of autism. Babies having autism show the early symbols like not trying to talk or jabber and lack the ability to point or wave or make the bodily sign. When parents find the warning signs related to autism, then they should see their pediatrician for checkup. The tests involves people to rule out the other probable causes of the warning sign, just like a hearing test and blood testing for lead in blood.

  290. I’m just wondering if I should be concerned for my 2 1/2 year old. When he was a baby he was always silent. He has never babbled. He smiled a lot, and he got the nickname baby Buddha. He never crawled,only army crawled. He was also a late walker. A little after his 2nd birthday my son had a hearing test because he still virtually said nothiung. They thought he was deaf in one ear, but come to find out he had a lot of water on his ear drums. So he got tubes in February. It has been 6 months since surgery and he still hardly says anything. He also likes to hit his ears when he’s angry and he shakes uncontrollably when there is something over stimulating for him, like when I took him to the lake, he stood on the shore, let th waves hit him and he shook the entire time and was flapping his arms around. He is obsessed with cars and if his siblings even look at his car, he covers his ears and starts screaming. He will only lay down to play with his cars as well . he’s also obsessed with cat hair and likes to suck on it with his thumb (I am constantly cleaning cat hair up, but somehow he manages to find it), he loves hairy stuffed animals as well, and sucks on the hair on them too. He cannot wave bye bye, he can point, but its sporadic. He does not do well with transitions and will cover his ears nd scream if I don’t warn him of what were about to do. He is a very loving and caring little boy, especially for his age. But the older he gets, the more tantrums he throws. He likes playing alone and is beginning to cry if other family members talk to him other than me. Sometimes when I say his name he acts as if he can’t hear me and other times he responds. He does not walk on his tippy toes, and he can’t run yet even though he’s 2 1/2. I’ve had him in speech therapy, early head start, occupational therapy and nothing really seemed to help. when the therapists would come over he would just throw himself diwn, especially if they didn’t do what he wanted, or we were moving on to another activity. He did learn how to sign for: help ,eat ,thankyou, and more. But now he gets mad when I’m playing with him and tell him to sign something. My dad who is big on NOT going to the Dr told me that something seems off about him and to take him to the dr and that he thinks he’s mildly MR, but I don’t think that’s the case at all. But regardless of anything, I will love him just the same. He’ll always be my baby buddha!

  294. I feel like autism sometimes ends up becoming a wall that separates the children from the world around them. I teach kids at a “school for children with Autism”. Mostly children do not respond to verbal communications very well but do much better with written communications. This is an excellent informative source for parents, teachers and autism adults to learn about it and especially how to deal with it effectively. It is really a life saver. Thanks for the effort.

  302. We have a son who is also in a residential setting. He is home for a visit right now, & is doing really well. We are SO thankful! It was the hardest thing I’ve/we’ve ever had to do…to have him leave home, but we could not physically manage his “meltdowns” as he matured. He still has them periodically, but thankfully, not while visiting here (for a week or so). Can’ t guarantee it would continue that way for longer though! Praise God for facilities that are there to help, & for loving people who work with those who need help there!

  309. I’m the widowed father of a severely nonverbal 18 yo Autistic daughter. I’ve lived the struggles of getting the diagnosis, spent all I had on early intervention, speech therapy and much more. I watched my wife, so overwhelmed with the daily struggle and strain.. get diagnosed with her cancer at stage 4 far too late to save her. Now all I want is to find the other parents of Autistic children so severe that they need help finding (or creating), a place that can assure these precious children now adults won’t be mistreated, restrained, over medicated during the remainder of the parents lives and most importantly after we are gone. Any searches I do result in the early years and it seems these families are totally forgotten and also give up in more ways than one. I need to find my tribe.. where I wish to meet others and find real ways to join forces to make the lives of these beautiful children better.
    I feel utterly alone in this. Living in a rural area makes this feeling worse. I would pick up and move anywhere to achieve the above. Signed, Zenrookie

  310. Recently, my longtime girlfriend and I found out that she was pregnant. I was ecstatic! Sure, it wasn’t planned, but we had been talking about getting married and having our own family for a long time. The excitement, however, has turned to dread. You see, she was married once before and as a result has a child. He’s a sweet little 8 year old guy. He was born with cerebellar hypoplasia and has been diagnosed with Autism. Due to having a small cerebellum, he lacks the balance to stand or walk. I am not sure of his intellectual capacity, as he is noncommunicative and responds to directions, only some of the time. That is a taboo subject when talking to my significant other. He knows how to say Ma, No and Cookie. Yes, he loves his cookies after every meal. He does not accept “No” for an answer and will throw tantrums, until he gets his cookies, goes outside or sits in the car. His tantrums can be violent. He wildly swings his arms hitting whomever is in his path or clears any tables within his reach. He has clocked me several times in the face, even after telling him to stop. Outside of that, he will get very upset and bite his hand until it bleeds. It is very difficult to calm him down and the meltdowns can last upwards of 30 minutes, with more than 6 in a day. He weighs approximately 90lbs and has become too heavy for us to carry (I have two herniated discs and a fractured vertebrae and she was recently diagnosed with arthritis in her hip and back along with 2 bulging discs at the age of 30… Has always been in pain since we started dating). He recently has stopped cooperating and will just sit, refuse to crawl up or down the stairs or have his diaper changed. When he cooperates we all celebrate by clapping, he loves the positive attention. I’d like to state that our time together isn’t always bad or negative, but these negative aspects are what concerns me. These episodes, meltdowns, tantrums or whatever you want to call them, probably occur 20 times a week. A neurologist had prescribed medication, however her family said it turned him into a zombie and it was discontinued 2 days later. He has OT, PT, speech therapy, adaptive tech therapy, water therapy and will be starting behavior therapy shortly. I have suggested looking into the diets I have read about that others have had success with regarding behavioral issues. However that was dismissed quickly. I am not sure what else there is to try to help everyone. It seems to be a vicious cycle. He gets frustrated because he can’t communicate his want or is told no, so he throws a tantrum, which in turn frustrates everyone around, which makes it difficult for everyone’s energy to level out and get back to enjoying life. Sometimes it feels as though he’s not happy unless he’s breaking everything in sight. We always joke around about it, but it’s so true. If there is something new in the room he has to man handle it until it breaks and then he’s happy and leaves the pieces behind. Here are my concerns. During the pregnancy, I am worried about her straining herself or getting hit or kicked in the stomach. I know it’s not on purpose and wouldn’t get mad because he doesn’t know any better, but I don’t want anything to happen to our child. I can work upwards of 60 hours a week and that’s a lot of time that I’m not there to help her. I’m scared for her when I’m not around and I don’t trust her not to lift him, potentially complicating the pregnancy as it progresses and causing further damage to her back and hip. I’m worried about when the baby comes along and he doesn’t get her undivided attention. I’m worried about jealousy. I’ve heard stories about myself when my sister was born and how I would try to pull her hair and wouldn’t let my mom hold her other than to feed her. I was two. He’s a lot bigger than I was, and could cause harm without understanding consequences. I also feel torn. I know my significant other has expressed she’s wanted siblings for him, so if anything happens to her that they will take care of him. I don’t think that is right expecting that of our children. I would hope that they would want to help, but I feel like not giving them the opportunity to live their life how they want to with expectations to care for their sibling is wrong. Which brings me to another point that I’m concerned about. What happens when the physical disabilities compounded with the behavior issues becomes too much for us to physically handle because of his size? As we have found out a 90lb squirming child is much hard to control than a 90lb weight. I’m in a panic as right now, I am only seeing the challenges that lie in front of us and am not sure how to proceed. Hopefully, someone else has experienced something similar and can offer up their advice. I can’t stress enough, that he is a good kid that I care about. I want what’s best for him. I know he’s not my own, but there isn’t anything that I wouldn’t do… Although, mom can handle the poopies. We have fun playing around with cars, balls, rolling around, going to zoos, car rides, hanging out on the couch watching Kung Fu Panda, and playing in bounce houses. I just foresee some events that I need reassurance about. I know the three of us all get frustrated at times and it would be great if anyone had any advice on how to overcome that.

  311. I have a friend with two autistic children. I see what she goes through each day.

    One way I can help her is by finding or creating items that could help with her kids. Her kids are now teenagers. But, she now sees things and wishes that she had those things when her kids were younger.

    If you wished you had something specific to help your child, what would it be?

    If I can make a few items that could help her older children and others (even younger children), I would love to do that.

  314. I recall vividly meeting Mia and her twin girls 12 months ago. The girls had very limited play skills and Dearne in particular had difficulty focusing on tasks/activities/toys for more than 10-15 seconds. They lacked the skills to occupy their own free time. Mia described life at home as difficult and said that it was impossible to leave them on their own in a room for any length of time.The twins did not make eye contact in response to their name. They communicated by constantly dragging or hand leading their parents.

  321. I have an 18 year old daughter that was diagnosed with low functioning classic Autism at 3. When I first entered this world there were very few places a parent could go to get advice from other parents about day to day life with Autism. That was the main purpose behind starting my blog, to help other parents in daily life. What do you do when your Autistic daughter is getting ready to hit puberty? No one was around to answer that question for me, So I decided to answer it and other questions for other parents. If you would be so kind as to add my blog to the list I would be grateful.
