Dachel Wake Up: MMR Jab Rate Drops

Dachel Morning Wake UoPercentage of children under two getting MMR jab plunges

The percentage of children given the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) jab by their second birthday continues to fall, new figures show.

Some 91.9% of children in 2015/16 had received their first dose of the MMR vaccine by their second birthday, down on the 92.3% in 2014/15 and 92.7% the year before.

However, by the age of five, 94.8% of children had their first dose - a record high. GPs invite children for the first dose of the jab when they are 12 to 13 months. ...

I like the word "plunges"...They're still talking about rates well above 90 percent. What they're really worried about is the possibility that things will get worse.

Dorit Pfizer
Note: While we're all thinking similar thoughts, please keep your comments away from Ms. Reiss' appearance and/or attire. It's her career mission that is our concern.  Maybe it was ugly sweater day at work. Again.  Oops.  Can you hear the photographer, "You're blocking the star of this shoot! Scooch DOWN!" KIM

By Anne Dachel

I spend a lot of time looking at the mainstream media’s coverage of autism. I’ve been doing this for years now. One person who’s almost as frequent posting comments as I am is Dorit Rubinstein Reiss. As determined as I am that vaccines are an unchecked, unsafe danger to children’s health, Reiss is right there defending them as a medical miracle no parent has a right to refuse. On numerous occasions Reiss has specifically responded to things that I posted

Reiss has also been cited in news reports telling parents to trust their doctors and line up their children for every shot on the schedule. She’s usually described like this: Dorit Rubinstein Reiss is a professor at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.”

Dachel Wake Up: "Anti-Vaxxers" Around the World

Dachel Morning Wake UoBy Anne Dachel

David Kirby, author of Evidence of Harm: Mercury in Vaccines and the Autism Epidemic: A Medical Controversy, once wrote that questioning the safety of vaccines is like speaking out against motherhood. I think even talking about vaccines critically is like challenging someone's religious beliefs. For obvious reasons the media outlets are the loudest supporters of vaccination. The premise always is "vaccines are safe, vaccines save lives." Not vaccinating endangers not only your child, but everyone else's as well. Feeble attempts at being "fair and balanced" usually mean citing a number of health officials or doctors to convince us vaccines can do no wrong while including a non-vaccinating parent. And autism--that mysterious condition affecting more and more children for no discernible reason--is usually mentioned in passing, but of no real consequence.

Dr. Leonard Abbeduto. Executive Director at the MIND Institute:

“…could be a game changer in really understanding what causes autism, and as I said, once we understand the causes, then we can start to work on more tailored treatment.”

Wake Up: California Vaccine Exemption Crackdown: From Parents to Doctors

Dachel Morning Wake UoBy Anne Dachel

California wants to pull this doctor's license. Here's how it's sparked a new battle over child vaccinations.

Dr. Robert Sears is one of the leading voices in the anti-vaccination world, a hero to parents suspicious of childhood immunizations that public health officials say are crucial to preventing disease outbreaks.

So when the Medical Board of California announced last week that it was moving to pull the Orange County pediatrician’s medical license, it immediately set the stage for a new battle in the long-running fight over whether schoolchildren should be vaccinated....

Vaxxed Team Speaks to Houston Mayor and City Council

VaxxedBy Anne Dachel

August 29, 2016, Heroic speeches by Del BigTree and Andrew Wakefield before the mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner, and the Houston City Council.

The response from Councilman Jack Christie, a chiropractic physician, was a stunning endorsement of Dr. Wakefield and strong condemnation of the actions of our federal health officials.

 

Del Bigtree:

“Hello Mayor and council. I’m here today—I worked for six years as the producer of the daytime talk show, The Doctors, been a medical producer for most of my career, celebrating the best that medicine has to offer. But while on that job, I came across a story about the CDC whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson. This is a man who’s come forward from the most important health agency in the county and said that they’ve committed scientific fraud on the MMR—autism study. This is the most important study ever done on the MMR—autism connection because it’s the last one ever paid for by the United States government.

The Wright Stuff: A Memoir by Bob Wright

Wright Stuff BookBy Anne Dachel

I just finished looking at this Reuters piece on Bob Wright's book, and although I have my own Mt Vesuvius moment whenever I see autism described as a "mental disorder," I like that fact that Jennifer Saba said that Bob Wright's involvement with his grandson's autism would make a book all by itself. ABSOLUTELY.

Yes, Katie Wright makes no bones about it. Her son Christian was born healthy. He was meeting all his milestones. He got vaccinated. He had horrible reactions that the doctor said were "normal." He lost his milestones. He stopped progressing. He developed severe bowel disease.

Saba talks about the Wright family's fears about Christian ability to care for himself as he grows. Scroll down past the Reuters story to the 2007 interview by author David Kirby. Katie explained in detail what happened to her son and how she was left on her own to deal with a vaccine-injured child.

Sept. 2 2016, Reuters: BREAKING VIEWS-Review: NBC chief's deal-heavy memoir merits split

By Jennifer Saba 

Like a good TV series, Bob Wright's memoir leaves fans wanting more. In "The Wright Stuff," the former NBC boss engagingly takes readers behind the scenes of how he built the U.S. network from a struggling laggard to a profitable powerhouse over two decades at General Electric. Negotiations with Jack Welch, Bill Gates and Ted Turner enhance the drama. Wright's moving account of his grandchild's autism, however, would have better suited a second book….

In the same year, 2004, that Wright first secured Vivendi Universal in what may have been his professional triumph, his personal life took a dramatic turn. He found out his 2-year-old grandson Christian was autistic. The lack of answers and support prompted Wright and his wife Suzanne, who died last month from cancer, to launch Autism Speaks.

Dachel Wake Up: Texas Monthly Goes After DA Nico LaHood

Dachel Morning Wake UoBy Anne Dachel

The only good thing about Texas Monthly is that it's NOT Texas Weekly or Texas Daily.

Other than that, it's a rag. Leif Reigstad must have been given his assignment like this: "We need a piece discrediting the film 'VaxXed' and Texas prosecutor, Nico LaHood. Don't bother talking about what's in the movie, just say it's by the 'disgraced' doctor, Andrew Wakefield, and that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says there is no link between vaccines and autism. Don't say anything about how LaHood's son developed autism, just call what he's doing an 'anti-vaccination campaign.'

Andy Wakefield, Vaxxed and The Media

VaxxedBy Anne Dachel

What I find most fascinating about the corruption of the media is their treatment of Andrew Wakefield. If you were to go to Google News and do a search, you'd find his name comes up quite often in stories about the vaccine controversy. You'd see things like:

"Dr. Andrew Wakefield has been involved with spreading the misinformation related to alleged conspiracy and cover-up..."

"... Andrew Wakefield was stripped of his medical license in the U.K. for falsifying the results of his own study..."

"...Andrew Wakefield, the discredited former British gastroenterologist who wrote a highly controversial (and since retracted) ..."

Unquestionably Andy is the fall guy. He's the one they blame for parental resistance to the ever-increasing vaccine schedule (while steadfastly ignoring all the sick kids everywhere). He connected vaccines to the development of autism and parents keep buying into the false claim, according to every major news organization out there.

Incredibly, no one in the media ever wants to talk to Andy about his position. Isn't that a little strange?

IF this doctor is SO WRONG and SO DANGEROUS, you'd think reporters would be questioning him everywhere he goes, setting up debates where members of the medical community could challenge his notoriously false position on vaccines and bring an end to the argument. SO WHY DON'T THEY?

I'm talking about folks like Clyde Haberman at the New York Times. He said Wakefield was "held in disgrace" in a piece entitled, "A Discredited Vaccine Study’s Continuing Impact on Public Health." And while Haberman interviewed Seth Mnookin, author of The Panic Virus, who defended vaccines, Andy was not contacted, although Haberman did cite him as "Dr. Wakefield."

Dachel Wake Up: Fox & Friends Fabricates Vaccination Story

Dachel Morning Wake UoBy Anne Dachel

It is clear that the major networks will make up the facts in order to defend vaccines and criticize parents who question their safety. We’ve seen it for years, and that is exactly what they did on this report on Fox & Friends. We’re told three quarters of parents don’t believe kids need vaccines.

???

This is outright news fraud. It's the Fox News version of a recently announced survey of doctors that was actually done in 2013.

The Fox anchor is stunned.  How could so many parents be so misinformed?

Actually, Fox has the story all wrong, and one has to ask if it was intentional.

Revolutionary Grandparents: A New Autism Book From Skyhorse Publishing

Rev GPBy Anne Dachel

Autism is talked about all over the place today, and with good reason since, according to one statistic, more than two percent of children have the disorder. Every April, the whole world lights up places in blue in a call for awareness. There are even those who celebrate autism having coined the term, “neurodiversity.”

News reports on autism may include a 30 second clip of typical looking kids interacting with therapists or happily climbing on playground equipment, but we rarely see how autism impacts every member of the family. The heartbreak does not stop with the parents. Grandparents, aunts, and uncles also share in the dashed dreams and exhausting search for answers when a child descends into autism.

The media doesn’t report on the emotional and physical toll autism takes on parents. Rarer still is any coverage of the role of the extended family members. That’s why I’m excited to talk about the book, Revolutionary Grandparents,  which highlights what these people do to support parents and even take on the role of fulltime caregiver themselves.

There are nineteen stories in Revolutionary Grandparents. They’re personal and moving. I have highlighted five of them for you.

Texas DA Risks Everything To Speak Out on Vaccine Injury

CautionNOTE: Keep an eye on the career of Texas DA Nico LaHood. And we don't mean for a promotion.  Speaking out on vaccine injury is fraught with danger.  The San Antonio Health District responded to LaHood with a statement Tuesday afternoon. It's at the end of this post.

By Anne Dachel

Aug 29, 2016, ABC12 San Antonio TX: District Attorney Nico LaHood: 'Vaccines cause autism'

Bexar County District Attorney Nico LaHood said Monday that vaccines cause autism.

In an interview with KSAT 12 News, LaHood said that he and his wife noticed a change in their son after he received his 18-month vaccination.

"We had a very different child," he said.

LaHood also voiced his opinions about the controversial subject in an interview that was posted on the Autism Media Channel Facebook page for the controversial documentary, “Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe.”

"I'm here to tell you that vaccines can and do cause autism," LaHood said in the interview.

When asked whether he should be voicing his opinion due to the political office he holds, LaHood said, "My opinions are just my opinions. As a daddy, as a husband, who happens to be the DA. People are allowed to have a First Amendment right to an opinion. I know this is not a politically correct opinion.... 

ABC12 has it wrong in the video segment.  Nico LaHood isn’t in “VaxXed”—He simply backs up the premise of a link between vaccines and autism because his son regressed following his scheduled shots.

LaHood has his supporters, including a colleague in the justice system.

Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff, who saw a preview of the film, said he agrees.

AAP Comes Out Against Non-Medical Vaccine Exemptions

Crazy_doctor1NOTE: Just as cardiologists became the sales arm for cholesterol meds, pediatricians are coming out of the medicine cabinet as the final sales arm of the vaccination industry.  How else could you explain a physicians' organization (really their union, see this post by Mark Blaxill from several years ago) choosing to remove choice for a medical product as a blanket rule for the vast majority of their patients?  Vaccination carries risk, whether you believe that risk is infinitesimal or inevitable.  The result of this stance - to remove all non-medical vaccination exemptions - will create a punitive environment for thinking pediatricians who choose to work with and listen to their parent base.  The child whose sister is wracked with seizures and who has not had her first seizure will not be able to delay or turn down a vaccine that has seizure risk as a side effect because she won't qualify for a medical exemption.  Like violent crime, proactive police prevention is not possible, you can only call the police - or in the case of vaccine injury the ER - after the injury.  Removing non-medical vaccine exemptions is the moral equivalent of denying a woman a restraining order against a man who threatens violence. He might not have harmed her yet, but the risk is real.  Why would the AAP take this stance except to protect the pharmaceutical industry? Feel free to share your thoughts.  Kim

By Anne Dachel

As “VaxXed” tours the country and parents who would never have questioned vaccine mandates are getting educated, the corporate powers that control medicine and lawmakers are fighting back. SB277 in California ending parental choice was just the beginning.

Two things are happening right now regarding vaccinations and Google News has everyone reporting on it.

First of all, the AAP is now calling for the elimination of all non-medical exemptions to vaccination. This announcement coincides with a survey showing that the vast majority of pediatricians have parents who refuse to vaccinate. The report goes on to say that those parents who don’t want to vaccinate do so because they think vaccines are unnecessary—not because of fears over side effects.  (Evidently they have to be forced to do what's good for their children.)

AAP News: Eliminate nonmedical immunization exemptions for school entry, says AAP

An AAP policy is calling for all states to use their public health authority to eliminate nonmedical exemptions from immunization requirements for school entry.

While the Academy has opposed nonmedical or “personal belief” exemptions in the past, this is the first policy statement on the issue. …

“I personally — as well as colleagues around the country — have received calls from parents whose children were immunocompromised … who were really concerned,” said Dr. Maldonado, vice chair of the AAP Committee on Infectious Diseases.

I recently wrote about the Aug 17, 2016 coverage from NPR Boston which focused on special needs students in Massachusetts.

Mass SPED chart

It was really hard to ignore the data, yet officials and educators in that state don't seem worried.

Additional reporting from NPR Boston included this interview of a special education expert from Lesley University about the soaring increase in autism.

WBUR's Morning Edition host Bob Oakes recently spoke with Elizabeth Keefe, an assistant professor at Lesley University who focuses on special education and autism spectrum disorders. We asked her if the number of special education students in the state is growing.

Keefe:

"The number of students that require special education services in the commonwealth has remained largely static over the last 10 years. There's no question that there have been specific groups, such as students with autism, who have experienced a significant number of students with particular disabilities in our schools. So I would say, the need for programming for students with very complex disabilities is certainly an issue in the commonwealth."

Dachel Wake Up: CA School Funding In Jeopardy Post SB277

Dachel Morning Wake UoBy Anne Dachel

SB 277: "This new law has a lot of parents in a total uproar," and it's turned school administrators into the vaccine police. And since school funding is based on enrollment, districts could lose hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Forcing parents to home school sounds like a violation of a child's right to a free and appropriate education.

The second story is from the San Francisco Chronicle and it's truly frightening. A child who "became unresponsive for nine days after her first ... Tdap, shot when she was a baby" was granted only a one-year medical exemption. Her sister, who's entering kindergarten, couldn't get one.

Aug 25, 2016, Humboldt County (CA) North Coast Journal: Prepare for Impact [of SB277]

A new vaccination law has school administrators caught between a needle and a hard place

As the first day of school approaches, there's an anxiety building in many administrative offices throughout Humboldt County. The anxiety doesn't seem to be pervasive, but cloistered in different pockets throughout the region. And it centers around a simple question: Will students show up?...

"We have to wait and see how it shakes out," said Stephanie Steffano-Davis, principal of Whitethorn Elementary. "But at this point, what I'm hearing is that vaccination is an issue for a lot of people and they're looking at alternatives. A lot of people are looking at alternatives to public education."

With a new state law on the books that mandates that just about every child in California be fully vaccinated for 10 communicable diseases before attending school, some, like Steffano-Davis, are worried about the impacts. And they could be dramatic. Humboldt County, which ranked 52nd of California's 58 counties in vaccination rates for incoming kindergarteners last school year, when 10.4 percent of Humboldt's 1,741 kids entered school with a personal belief exemption (PBE) that sidestepped mandatory vaccinations....

Take Tenae LaPorte, who has quit her job in a local dermatologist's office to homeschool her children. She had planned on sending them to Fieldbrook Elementary but is dead set against vaccinating them. ...

But the bill also did something many in the public didn't expect: It put schools on the front lines of California's immunization war. Because the Legislature didn't want to fund an enforcement mechanism, it simply made vaccinations a condition of education and forced administrators to be the gatekeepers.

"We are very frustrated that we are now the immunization police," said Julia Anderson, the executive director of Beginnings in Briceland, which includes Skyfish elementary school and a child care center. "This new law has a lot of parents in a total uproar."

While the new law may have parents in some communities in an uproar, administrators at the schools that will potentially face the biggest impacts don't seem to want to talk about it. Scores of calls and emails to administrators at schools with historically large numbers of personal belief exemptions went unreturned. When administrators did reply, the response was generally curt.

"We don't know the impacts yet ... won't know until we see how many students arrive on August 25th," wrote Catherine Scott, superintendent of Southern Humboldt Unified School District, in an email....

It's not difficult to understand why administrators would be on edge given what's at stake. In California, school funding is tightly tied to enrollment and attendance. That means parents' deciding that homeschooling their children is preferable to vaccinating them has a direct impact on school budgets and, consequently, staffing.

Aug 22, 2016, San Francisco Chronicle: Thousands start school without vaccinations as new law rolls out

...San Francisco mom Adrienne Moore, who fought the law, spent months trying to get a medical exemption for her kindergartner.

Moore said her daughter became unresponsive for nine days after her first tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis, or Tdap, shot when she was a baby. Before school started last week, she said, her doctor agreed to support a one-year medical exemption.

Moore’s second daughter, who would start kindergarten next year, has no exemption. If it’s a choice between vaccines and homeschooling, the mom said her girls would stay home.

The law is still subject to a court battle, and a federal judge in San Diego is expected to rule this week on whether to delay it while a legal challenge proceeds. A lawsuit filed by an antivaccination group, Education 4 All, charges that the law violates the right to an education under California’s constitution.

Normalizing Autism--We Have No Choice

Old is new memeBy Anne Dachel

Countries around the world can no longer ignore all the neurologically disabled children and young adults everywhere. Despite the pretense that nothing is really going on, that we've only in recent decades understood that there are people living with autism--ones who can't speak, interact normally, behave like other children--we're having to make accommodations that were never needed before. Somehow we have to convince ourselves that designating more and more places as autism-friendly/sensory-friendly is just the result of greater awareness. Stories are out everyday that prove my point. We're adjusting, it seems, no questions asked. Soon, as more and more of these children age out of school and enter adulthood, we won't remember a world without those with special needs everywhere.

I imagine the forms parents fill out for registration for school or sports or organization will soon look like this:

Form AD

 Here's a quick look at the world surrendering to autism. There's no need to look for a cause or call it a crisis or try to prevent it. We've all learned to accept autism as a normal part of childhood in the 2st century, and soon we won't remember a world without people on the spectrum. We have to do this, the alternative is to expose how an unchecked, unsafe vaccination schedule damaged millions of children around the world. That is the unthinkable to the people in charge and their lackeys in the press. 

Get used to hearing about "autism friendly" and "sensory friendly" accommodations. They're the signs of the times.

Massachusetts' Special Education Soars - So Do Problems

Mass SPED chart
By Anne Dachel

This article is the second of a two part series on the Massachusetts special education system. Problems are enormous with no solutions in sight. There are charges of abuse and neglect in a program that seems to be failing to meet the needs of the disabled in state schools.

This particular story focuses on the numbers, the jaw-dropping increases in special needs students, especially those with autism. Something is clearly wrong. The burden on schools is overwhelming, yet nowhere in this coverage is there a call for answers.

Aug 17, 2016, WBUR Boston: 'There Is No Yelp': Why Parents Struggle With The State's Special Ed System

"We have a growing concern about students with disabilities across the commonwealth being severely mistreated," said Stan Eichner, the center's head litigator. "It’s our sense that the mistreatment of these youngsters with disabilities is not limited to public or private schools, it’s not limited by geography, and we think it’s a widespread problem.”...

According to state data, the number of special ed students with severe disabilities is increasing. Since 2003, enrollment of students with autism, for example, is up more than 300 percent. The number of students with severe neurological impairments is up almost 150 percent in the same time frame....

Mossaides says she believes this is the first time the state has taken such a deep dive into reviewing oversight of these schools.

LA Times Chides HuffPo for Having Run Vaccine Posts (Once Upon a Time)

Male Temper Tantrum
Random Tantrum Guy, Not Paul Thornton

By Anne Dachel

August 11, 2016, Los Angeles Times: Arianna Huffington wants to sell health advice and products. Science help us.

Paul Thornton, at the LA Times, is mad at Arianna Huffington because for years she's allowed for free speech on the issue of vaccine safety on the Huffington Post blog. Thornton blames the likes of Jenny McCarthy, Dr. Jay Gordon, and Bill Maher for giving us their opinions on vaccines on HP, and he's even more dismayed because now Ms Huffington is moving on to a new public forum, Thrive Global. Thornton fears for the worse.

I think I can see what Thornton's problem is, because even a brief scan of the Huffington Post archives reveals numerous articles on the pro-vaccine side. The only conclusion I can come to is that he’s mostly upset by the idea of anyone being fair and balanced when it comes to covering vaccines safety. If all the mainstream news outlets are following the dictates of their advertisers (pharma) and bowing to pressure from health officials and therefore writing what they're told about vaccines--never actually investigating this controversy for themselves--there has to be a way to shut down the alternative news sources.  

In his biography it states, "Paul Thornton is the Los Angeles Times’ letters editor. He joined the editorial pages in 2005 as a researcher and occasional editorial writer and also served as a Web producer."

We should all be concerned that someone with no tolerance for opposing views on vaccine safety is in charge of which letters get published at the Times. And it's hard to believe that Thornton has spent over a decade as a researcher for the LA Times, yet has such a simplistic view of the vaccine controversy. Sadly, his not-too-subtle call for censorship is the standard viewpoint of the American media when it comes to talking about vaccines: We will not look into this.

Arianna Huffington got very rich off writers working for free and by providing a platform for quacks to push dubious medical advice, including dangerous amounts of anti-vaccination nonsense. ...

But we should be skeptical of anyone who sees economic opportunity in selling us answers that science and mainstream medicine have not yet provided (despite their best efforts). Huffington has gone a step further and enabled people who encourage dangerous behavior and deserve to be ignored. Keep that in mind before you “Thrive” (for a price, of course)....

This is encouraging to see. Of course this is a racial issue. CDC scientists have covered up a known risk to African American boys. If this discussion continues to get attention in the black community, the CDC will address it--I expect officials are busy as we speak producing NEW research that shows no racial difference; the 2004 study was just a fluke. We were told a few months ago that Thompson was going to back away from his claim, but nothing was made public.

Dachel Wake Up: CA SB277 Richard Panavision

Dachel Morning Wake UoBy Anne Dachel

The Sacramento Bee gave space for Richard Pan to write this opinion piece on how fortunate California parents are that their lawmakers have taken away their rights as parents to choose a medical intervention.

The message here is that unvaccinated children are a danger to us all---AND it's clear that Pan will scrutinize any medical exemption a doctor might give, since he openly accuses California doctors here of fraud for giving exemptions. Ha also accuses homeschooling parents of evading the law---so he intends to go after them too.

This is medical fascism, and more is coming. Pan doesn't make idle threats. It's time for doctors and parents in California to contact the Bee and ask for EQUAL TIME. Not only do parents not have the right to decide if their child is vaccinated or not, BUT doctors can have their medical opinion questioned too, as revealed by Pan's veiled threats here.

Vaxxed The Movie: Mainstream Review and A Denver Interview

VaxxedBy Anne Dachel

This coverage reminds me of a middle school student production—something I’m very familiar with. Reporter Liz Lohuis said this about the movie: Film creators say the 90-minute film tells the story of a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention whistle-blower who claims the CDC covered up documents.

“The documents apparently prove there is a link between the MMR vaccine and autism.”

It’s doubtful that Lohuis actually viewed the film she covered. Nothing more specific was said. The nature of the studies and details of the cover-up were not given. Despite the fact that the “VaxXed” team is very available to talk to the media, they were not included.

Instead, Lohuis interviewed a mother who is very skeptical of vaccine safety claims and the always ready to defend vaccines, Dr. William Schaffner.

Dr. William Schaffner, one of the nation's leading infectious disease specialists, works right here at Vanderbilt University. He called the movie malarkey.

“It raises issues that have been put to rest many times before. There is absolutely no connection between vaccines and autism. There was no CDC cover up,” Schaffner said.

Rolling Stone on Autism and the Catastrophe of Aging Out

Cliff down
By Anne Dachel

July 27, 2016, Rolling Stone: Luke's Best Chance: One Man's Fight for His Autistic Son
 
First of all, I have never said anything personally against any parent struggling with a disabled child in any of my writing, and this is not about the author of the Rolling Stone piece. I'm hopeful that Paul Solotaroff will continue to be a great advocate for his autistic son Luke and that Luke's future will be everything his parents could want for him. Solotaroff asks the trillion dollar question (I'm projecting here to the jaw dropping future cost of autism that will be shouldered by the U.S. taxpayers.), namely: "What happens when they come of age?"
 
For the second time in a week (See July 27 story, What Will Happen to Adult Children with Autism?)  http://www.ageofautism.com/2016/07/what-will-happen-to-adult-children-with-autism-.html#more I'm writing on this question.
 
Actually it's the WRONG QUESTION.
 
We need to be asking the people in charge of health care more than one that only gets a vague, shoulder-shrugging answer.
 
Instead, this is what authorities should be forced to respond to:

Why aren't there services already in place for the 1,000,000 young adults with autism who will be aging out of school in the next two decades?
 
Where are autistic adults just like Luke living currently? (That's a simple question, but no one can ever reasonably answer it. If as Solotaroff points out, some experts--Penn State is cited here--believe that it's all just better accounting of the disabled, then they should be able to show us where the 40, 50, and 60 year olds with autism are. Even if they have another label, they would still require care, so where are they?
 
 NO ONE KNOWS ANYTHING FOR SURE ABOUT AUTISM. No known cause, prevention, or cure. Arguments continue over the best treatments and therapies for autism, and we can't say for sure if more kids have autism. STILL, no one is in a panic about something that can render a child dependent for life. No U.S. health official has ever publicly stated that autism is a "crisis." That word has never been in the same sentence with "autism." "Serious public health care concern" is the strongest language used in connection with autism.

What Will Happen To Adult Children with Autism?

Scary-truth_495x150
By Anne Dachel

To answer the idiotic question posed below,"What will happen to adult children with autism?" let me just say...horrible things. They're happening already.

Examples:

July 21, 2016, New York Daily News:  Florida cop who shot unarmed therapist was aiming for his patient

July 21, 2016, Winston-Salem, NC: Fire Department Saves Autistic Man From Treatment Plant Drainage Ditch

July 21, 2016, Long Island Exchange: Suffolk Police Issue Silver Alert for Missing Autistic North Blue vomitAmityville Man

July 21, 2016, New Jersey Herald: Panel: 'Abuse' was cause of autistic student's broken legs

July 15, 2016, Los Angeles Times: Teen with autism was pepper sprayed and shot with Taser for being combative, police say...

July 15, 2016, Fox6 Memphis TN: Hired caregiver accused of punching, kicking autistic patient

July 13, 2016, Las Vegas Sun: Autistic man goes missing in northeast valley

You might never have thought that our society, in the span of about twenty-five years, could quietly come to accept a massive number of children with a disorder that was previously almost unknown--but we have. It's called "autism." The numbers have continually increased over the last twenty-five years with no sense of alarm. We've been conditioned to believe that those in charge are doing everything they can to research what's going on. We can take comfort in the fact that officials and doctors are worried. We can delude ourselves into believing that autism is just a new name for an age-old condition.

Dachel Wake Up: The Selling of Autism

Dachel Morning Wake UoBy Anne Dachel

Kids with autism, that mysterious disorder that we didn’t know anything about until about 25 years ago, are now a fact of life in America and around the world.  Autism happens--we need to learn to live with it.

These four stories demonstrate what I mean. No one cares WHY your child is autistic. There's nothing we can do about that. In fact, we don't even want to talk about it!

Autism has been mythologized into normal and acceptable "difference." It's along the same lines as near-sightedness and being left-handed. It's just the way some people are. The BEST way to do that is to have the press convince us with stories every hour on the news ...

Dachel Wake Up: 64 Women Sue in Japanese Courts Over Cervical Cancer Vaccine

Dachel Morning Wake UoBy Anne Dachel

The HPV vaccine is proving to be not only high risk in terms of reactions, but high risk in terms of injuring teens and adults who can speak out - rather than "just" babies who stop or never start speaking at all.  From Japan Times:

A group of lawyers for 64 women who are suffering health problems from cervical cancer vaccines said Tuesday the victims will file damages lawsuits against the government and two drugmakers that produced the vaccines through four district courts on July 27.

Pittsburgh Mom Describes Serious Gardasil Vaccine Injury

Vioxx now gardasilNote: Doctors are ready to blame anything except the vaccines they administer when a patient becomes chronically sick.  Watch this video about how a 13 year old girl's life changed dramatically after "just one" dose of Gardasil. "No no no it couldn't be the vaccine." Except when it is.  See an interview with Sara at the bottom of this post. KRS

By Anne Dachel

Sara Sotomayor's mother tells her story at "VaxXed" in Pittsburgh. "She was injured by the Gardasil vaccine on October 17, 2006. She had just one dose of the Gardasil vaccine. She was 13 at the time. She’s 23 now, so we’re coming up on the ten year anniversary.




“As soon as the vaccine needle left her arm, she was squealing and crying. She said it felt like an aluminum bat hit her arm.

“We were, of course, reassured by the nurse at the doctor’s office that this is normal. Particularly the Gardasil vaccine, this is normal to have a lot of pain at the injection site. …

“Two days later, the pain is still there. She’s really complaining a lot, and she’s not a complainer. …So I called the doctor’s office and I said what was going on. Again they reassured me this is natural, this is normal, don’t worry about it. Just give it a little time. And so we did, we gave it time.

“I didn’t know anything about vaccine injury. …The following days and weeks what ended up happening was she had severe nosebleeds—like gushing. Her gait started to change when she walked. She kind of favored one side. She was extremely pale. …

Joshua Coleman Speaks Out on Son's Vaccine-Induced Paralysis (Transverse Myelitis) and SB277

Josh Coleman 6 25 16
By Anne Dachel

Joshua Coleman is the father of eight year old Otto Coleman, who was vaccine-injured at seventeen Otto Coleman and sonmonths of age. Joshua was very involved in the efforts to stop the bill that would end vaccine choice in California last year.

Joshua came to Sacramento on June 10, 2015 to speak to the California Assembly Health Committee about what happened to his son. In this Age of Autism piece Disabled CA Boy's Testimony to SB277 Lawmakers: "I Love Going To School. Please Don't Take That Away From Me." we can read what Joshua wanted to tell legislators.

Despite the fact that he wasn't able to address the Health Committee, Joshua did make his speech before a huge crowd at the capitol on June 25, 2015.

Here is part of what Joshua had to say about the reality of vaccine injury and what doctors and legislators are willing to close their eyes to.

"We asked why this had happened, and the doctor said it was most likely a reaction to either a vaccination or an airborne virus, the latter being rejected since he'd had no signs of illness.  The doctor then slammed the door shut on further discussion of how our healthy son went from walking to being paralyzed.  There was no investigation to specifically determine what had caused our child to go from walking and running into a wheelchair for the rest of his life.  At a later date, we took our son to Johns Hopkins for further testing.  There, doctors investigated every possible reason why our son might have become paralyzed from Transverse Myelitis, every possible reason except for vaccines.  This made no sense then, and it makes no sense now, as every doctor that Otto saw at four different hospitals mentioned that the vaccines he received in close proximity to his paralysis were the most likely culprit."

Recently I contacted Joshua Coleman so he could tell us more about his experiences.

I asked Joshua about the rally against SB277 held on June 25, 2016 in Sacramento and about his remarks.

“We showed up at the capitol and there was a large rally, hundreds and hundreds of parents—possibly about a thousand—showed up and several of us gave speeches. I spoke about my experience with vaccines. My son was vaccine injured at seventeen months old.

“I have his vaccination cards here. I actually looked at his vaccination records. At seventeen months old, he had received thirty-seven vaccines, which is about three times the amount I got in my entire adult life. He ended up paralyzed with transverse myelitis.

Andrew Wakefield Speaks on Project TENDR Pediatric Health Risk Assessment

Andy Santa Monica Candle
By Anne Dachel

Top researchers—all respected scientists—are saying that we are poisoning the brains of our children with the industrial/consumer products that they are exposed to everyday. Consensus Statement HERE.

Take note of the chilling words: “The vast majority of chemicals in industrial and consumer products undergo almost no testing for neurotoxicity or other health effects." While they don’t talk about vaccines, the same thing is true when we talk about the neurotoxic effects of the chemicals and combined viruses we use in vaccines—they have not been studied.

Dr. Wakefield announced the publication of this consensus statement at the 2nd Annual Health Freedom Rally and Candlelight Vigil at City Hall, in Santa Monica, Califiornia on July 1st, 2016.

Andy was introduced by Wendy Silvers, Founder, MillionMamasMovement. He began his brief talk by asking who in the audience had NOT seen “VaxXed.”

He continued:

“There are times in history when change occurs, there are times when change becomes inevitable, when change becomes unstoppable. The camera rolls and the world bears witness. A single voice cries out against the many voices of corruption and is heard. A time when the government sells the lives of your children to corporations in order to line their pockets.

“That time has come. That time is now. We must make that time, now you must make that time now.

“In ‘VaxXed’ the camera rolled and the world is bearing witness. ‘VaxXed’ brought you the single voice, the lone voice of Dr. William Thompson, and that is changing everything. He is silencing the lies and the corruption of all those who have gone before.

“So now is the time. Now is the time to overthrow the corporate rule of this country and to bring the power back to the people.

“I want to share with you one thing, amazing news that came through this morning. I just want to read this to you.

‘An unprecedented alliance of leading scientists, health professionals, and children’s health advocates agreed for the first time that today’s scientific evidence supports a link between exposure to toxic chemicals in food, air, and everyday products, and children’s risk for neurodevelopmental disorders. The alliance, known as Project TENDR, is calling for immediate action to significantly reduce exposure to toxic chemicals to protest brain development for today’s and tomorrow’s children.’

“And let me just add a caveat to that. In this article, they talk about mercury, they talk about pharmaceuticals, they come within a hair’s breath of saying what you have known all along, of saying vaccines. You and I know because we’ve witnessed this for twenty or more years, and that is where this is going. And they know it. The people that wrote this paper wrote it in large part because they do not want to end up on the wrong side of history.

This is something that you have known for a very, very long time, and you have been telling them And kicking and screaming, they have now been brought to the table and decided that it’s politic, that it’s scientifically the correct time to get onboard and say what? That this is what we believe. Will they say that parents were right all along?

“No, they won’t. No they won’t, because that would be an indictment of them. But believe you me, this is being written because many NIH scientists, EPA scientists on here do not want to end up on the wrong side of history.

“But believe me, I will not let them forget where they stood. I will not let these agencies forget where they stood barely one year ago. They do not absolve their consciences that easily. All of this has been known during the writing and the passage of this insidious and most dangerous bill, SB277.  And it must be destroyed for the children of California and the children of the world.”

America has been warned. We must take immediate action. We cannot say that known neurotoxins in vaccines have been exonerated. Like all these other products allowed by government oversight agencies, vaccines have not been thoroughly studied. THIS HAS TO BE A MAJOR ISSUE IN THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

Dachel Wake Up: Aging Out of School

Dachel Morning Wake UoBy Anne Dachel

This is from California, the state where parents no longer have a choice when it comes to vaccinating their children. Here's one mother's story of looking for adult services for her daughter. This is the inevitable disaster we'll all face in America.

June 28, 2016, KQED Public Media for Northern CA (San Francisco): When Autism Ages Out of the School System

By Pamela Raymond

California’s day programs for adults with autism are underfunded and overcrowded. But with thousands of young people with developmental delays or disabilities about to reach the age at which they can no longer attend a public school and receive the many services offered there, the problem is soon going to get much, much worse....

When Briana’s special education school abruptly closed in the fall, I was faced with the premature task of finding her a placement in an adult day program. Because she is just turning 21, she would only have one more year of special education services under the 1990 Individuals with Disabilities Education Act — or IDEA — which assures a free and appropriate public education to disabled students to age 22.

...“This is a program I could see my Briana in. How do I sign her up?”

Not so easy. There is not even a waiting list per se, and the program prefers clients that are more independent than Briana. She still needs help sometimes in the bathroom, and she needs a pair of eyeballs on her at all times due to her wandering tendencies. There really was no space for someone with such great needs.

...I saw 50-plus clients crowded into two run-down rooms, many in wheelchairs parked in front of a big-screen television. It was noisy and chaotic. ...

...They had greater staff-to-client ratio, but the clients almost never left the building. There was no outdoor space to utilize or enjoy....

These programs, with some exceptions like the well-established one in Marin, are buckling under current conditions, and they are only going to get worse with the increasing number of adults like my daughter about to age out of the school setting.

The demand is leading some new programs to open, but they are faced with trying to operate a business without failing. This can mean sub-optimal buildings, and paying low wages to staff.

The ratios of staff members to clients are controlled by reimbursement rates by the regional centers. The regional centers receive funding from the state Department of Developmental Services. The pay rates of some of these professionals are on par with what caregivers are paid, which is close to minimum wage. Pet sitters or baristas that serve us our coffee may earn more than we pay those important, compassionate people that care for our loved ones. Are we OK with this?

Time is needed to find a good day program for a disabled young adult because there are not enough options. In the next decade, 500,000 children with developmental delays will enter adulthood nationwide, overwhelming a system that is already inadequate for the current numbers. Legislative leaders need to know how bad the problem already is so that plans can be made to avoid this looming public crisis.

VaXxed Becomes a Cautionary Tale Of Vaccine Injury for All Americans to Hear

Alarm warningBy Anne Dachel

Vaxxed” is being shown in theaters across the U.S. and in Canada. It will soon go international. Thousands and thousands of ordinary people are learning about the complete lack of safety standards and the corrupt practices at our Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Countless parents of vaccine injured children who have suffered in silence now have a film that proves what happened in their family is real.

 “Vaxxed” producer Polly Tommey has been conducting interviews at these screenings. She herself is the mother of a 20 year old son with severe autism. I asked her how meeting all these parents of vaccine injured children has affected her.

From Calgary Canada, here was her response.



“I started traveling with Andy and Del on the 1st of April and we’ve been pretty much going full blast till now. …For the nineteen years that I’ve been doing this with the [Autism File] magazine, talking about my son’s injury, attending conferences, talking to other parents around the world, forming the [Autism] Media Channel with Andy Wakefield, filming families—NOTHING, NOTHING has prepared me for the American people out there with the extent of vaccine injury.

“I had no idea about the military. The military situation in America is a disaster. It is inhumane. It is horrific, barbaric. There are no other words for what is going on in the military. We’re seeing damage, after damage, after damage. Young, beautiful kids want to fight for America, unable to get out, being used as human pin cushions. Horrific stories coming from there.

“The amount of dead babies… We’re speaking to parents, they tell us, mainly from DTaP, that they were told by the doctor, if they didn’t get the DTaP, then they were the worst parents in the world, and their children would die—And these children did die, from the DTaP. And the parents have no voice because their child died. There’s no society for them to have a voice. Children that have died later on, adults that  have died, flu vaccine, horrific stories coming in from the Gardasil, and babies that that have died because they were given far too many flu vaccines at a young age.

“It is non-stop. And every single story—every single story has the same thing: A pediatrician, a doctor, or a nurse had bullied them into having these vaccines. None of these people are anti-vaccine, just like I wasn’t. I was pro-vaccine…

“There [are] no words to explain what has happened to the American people with the vaccine injuries. So I will keep touring for as long as I can, and filming every single family that I can, and bring to you what is going on in America with the devastation of vaccine injury. It’s real. It’s real.”

PARENTS AT “VAXXED”

https://www.facebook.com/VaxXed/videos/708666562609719/?pnref=story

Mother:

“I had a beautiful baby boy… He was very healthy. He started rolling over at a very young age. He was very advanced, saying ‘mama’ at six months old…

“And then about his 15 month vaccinations, he had seven shots.  We went home. That night he started screaming …and I couldn’t get him to stop.  …I called his pediatrician, and she said, ‘Oh, it’s normal. It’s just a vaccine reaction. He’s going to be fine.’

“But he screamed all through the night. He had explosive diarrhea…. And the next morning, he was really limp and not responding well to me like he normally had. …

“We took him down to the emergency room. They said, ‘Oh, it’s just a vaccine reaction; he’ll be fine.’ At first they didn’t want to agree with that, but his pediatrician had already said that that was what they thought it was.

“And he kept losing all his skills, and by the time that he hit two, he had no words, he kept falling all the time. He’d spend up to six hours a day screaming and rocking back and forth. He didn’t acknowledge me or his dad anymore.

“And now he’s nine and we use…Generation Rescue, and he’s gotten a lot better.  But he still can’t go to school. He can’t talk. He doesn’t know who anybody is.  …

“I hope that parents really start researching vaccination and what it can do to their baby. Because it’s not how it can affect me that I’m so upset, but that it stole his life, it stole his future, it stole my beautiful child. And there’s nothing I can do now except tell parents, please research. Please ask the questions, please don’t just listen to your doctor. Please go watch ‘Vaxxed.’ Talk to doctors that are against vaccines, see what they’re talking about. And save your baby because it’s too late for mine.”

ER Doc and MedWife on VaXxed after Seattle Showing

New paradigm
By Anne Dachel

First of all, let me say that due to the crowd scene following the screening of "Vaxxed" in Seattle, no one got the name of this doctor who was interviewed by Polly Tommey.  (And if anyone knows who this man is, please let me know.)

Both the doctor and his wife are obviously well-informed on vaccine safety issues. Not only that, he's willing to stand up for his beliefs. He's an ER doctor who refused the mandated flu vaccine. He also refused to wear a mask in lieu of being vaccinated.

https://www.facebook.com/VaxXed/videos/707164376093271/?pnref=story

This is a rare physician—one who is willing to take on the medical community when it comes to mandated vaccinations.  He and his wife have educated themselves on the risks associated with vaccines.

When asked about other doctors who refuse vaccines he said, "There are some that do that, most of them just fall in line with the rest of the herd. …I don’t do that anymore. I won’t do it. I told them they either have to fire me or find another job somewhere because I’m not going to wear a mask, first of all, second, I’m not going to get a vaccine.”

Dachel Wake Up: Autism Merits Special "Quiet" Shopping Hours

Dachel Morning Wake UoBy Anne Dachel

Get used to autism. Get used to kids everywhere being on the spectrum, having sensory issues, and needing special accommodations. We have to learn to live with more and more children with developmental problems, labeled non-verbal, prone to having meltdowns when the stress gets to be too much. In a few more years we won't remember a world when autism wasn't just a fact of life. The Sensitive Santa at the local mall at Christmas, the autism friendly story time at the local library, the special movie showings for ASD kids with reduced lighting and sound are just the beginning. Changes will have to be made to provide for all these people because we're not going to do anything to stop more and more children from ending up with autism.

Someone posted this story from last month from the UK Independent on my Face Book:
