Autism knows no racial, ethnic, or social boundaries, nor any family income, lifestyle, or education levels. It does not discriminate or have a preference of life to complicate. Autism by definition is a developmental disorder that appears in the first 3 years of life, and affects the brain’s normal development of social and communication skills. (Google. 2009) Autism has been estimated to occur in 1 in 91 children, and out of those 91 kids 58 of them are boys. (Autism Speaks. 2009) Therefore Autism is becoming seen as an unprecedented epidemic that is sweeping in unannounced. When actually it has been the misdiagnosed culprit for almost seventy years.
Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first 3 years of life and is four times more common in boys than girls. Autism is a disease involving the brain, the immune system, and the gastrointestinal tract. The disability can be seen as somewhat of a detachment of social activities. Someone whom is diagnosed as Autistic may show high sensitivity to all of their senses. They may also become distressed over sound or sight. The way something feels or smells, such as wearing an itchy wool sweatshirt can trigger a melt down, resulting total with drawl of wearing any clothes at all. Stepping out of the norm or breaking a common routine can also trigger one of these.
Parents of children with Autism usually spend many hours researching the subject after their child is diagnosed. Part of the reason they search, is so they are educated on what kind of care their child will need. The other reason is because they have heard all the myths about autism and they are looking for facts. Just with any other ground breaking epidemic, Autism has many myths associated with it.
Every Sunday in Bikini Bottom is a very stormy, yet dreadful day. So therefore on every Sunday night around 6:30 p.m. Charlie Sheen goes and visits the Krusty Krab Pub. While he’s there he drinks until he can’t anymore. He takes shots and gets every drink you could ever think of. He says he does it because all the rain and bad weather depresses him and the drinking helps him forget about the ...
Some claim that individuals with autism never make eye contact or that they do not look at you. People with autism do often struggle with social interactions. However, they do make eye contact. You might even be lucky enough to get a smile as well. (Autism Society of America 2008)
People with autism do not show affection. On the contrary, they can and do show affection. People with Autism process things differently than we do. So the affection may not always come in the form we want, but they will show it in their own way.
My nephew has autism, and he gives kisses. He even likes to be cuddled. Each individual with autism is so different, that you can’t group them all into one category. Some will have problems showing affection, while others won’t. But this does not mean that they can’t learn to be affectionate.
People with autism aren’t all geniuses. Individuals with Autism are not sevants either. Having autism does not mean they can’t be a genius, either. They may exhibit skills that are above normal in one area, but be below normal in others. An autistic child may be able to recite every word to his or her favorite movie. Then, not be able to find the words to tell you he or she wants a drink.
People with autism do not talk. While there are some people with autism who do not talk, this is not true for everyone. Many people with autism can communicate normally. Those who don’t talk can still communicate using sign language, pictures, or computers. Others may be able to physically speak by repeating what they hear, but not communicate what they want or need. (Autism Society of America 2008)
Autism can be outgrown. It can’t be outgrown, but it can be treated. Many people with autism are married, have kids, and are employed, leading productive and happy lives. Autism doesn’t halt an individuals life. It is a disability that is worked with and dealt with on a day to day basis. Autism is not outgrown but some of the symptoms can change if not disappear all together. (Autism Society of America 2008)
Autism is autism Autism Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life. The result of a neurological disorder that affects the functioning of the brain, autism and its associated behaviors have been estimated to occur in as many as 1 in 500 individuals (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 1997). Autism is four times more prevalent in ...
While this growing epidemic is putting a burden on both our health care and school systems, it would be very important and wise to know what causes this debilitating disease. Many argue that Autism is a genetic disorder, but how can a genetic disorder be associated with an epidemic. The only reason why this option is offered is because no other cause is offered. The fact is the controversy over the nature of this epidemic, which the most plausible cause, is in vaccination programs. Many Americans do not accept this theory because the public believes that vaccination are safe, effective and health promoting. (K.N.O.W. 2008)
In the case of autism, researchers have found that a high percentage of those individuals with Autism are victims of massive chemical toxicity. (K.N.O.W. 2008) The neurological damage that is characteristic with Autism coincides with the well-established side effects of mercury, aluminum and formaldehyde toxicity, and coincidently these neurotoxins are common vaccine ingredients. (Generartion Rescue. 2009) And these vaccinations are given to infants within the first eighteen hours of birth. But when a baby is first born, the body is in a very vulnerable state. The body is not prepared for the vaccination program that is to ensue.
During the 1940’s and 50’s when only some of the population was exposed to only a few vaccines, autism was primarily confined to the upper and upper-middle socioeconomic classes, those who could afford good health care and the cost of vaccination.
During the 1970’s and 80’s, the federal government established goals for improving vaccination rates. To achieve high vaccination rates (97%), the government implemented nationwide vaccine initiatives, which included offering federal grants to states and encouraging strict enforcement (state mandates for forced vaccination).
First described and named by Leo Kenner in 1944, the mysterious disability of autism is characterized by a peculiar emotional and intellectual detachment from other people and the common human world. In autistic children, an impaired capacity for communication and human relationships and a severely restricted range of activities and interests become evident before the age of three. Although the ...
During this time period, the number of mandated vaccines gradually increased (from 8 in 1980 to 22 in 2000) as vaccination became a requirement for a much younger population (the majority of all 30 childhood vaccines are administered before the age of 18 months).
Only after these developments did autism cross class lines. Today autism is widespread in all socioeconomic groups.
The way in which autism developed in children changed after the mid-1980’s. Parents began reporting that their children developed normally during the first year and half and then became autistic. It is a fact that most vaccines contain toxic mercury, many of them grossly in excess of EPA permissible standards for adults.
In 1979, the mercury-containing MMR was added to the vaccine schedule. In 1988, the mercury-containing HIB vaccine was added. Mercury-containing Hepatitis B for newborns was added in the early 1990’s. Children receive all these vaccines, plus mercury-containing DTP, in three to four toxic doses during the first year and a half of their fragile lives, and the vaccines are usually administered simultaneously (multiple mercury-containing vaccines on the same day).
