In Memoriam: Katie Weisman

WeepA sad announcement from John Gilmore of Autism Action Network on Facebook last night:


RIP Katie Weisman. We have lost a wonderful friend, a great spirit and a ferocious warrior.

It is with a very heavy heart I let you all know that our Katie passed just before midnight last night. Katie fought her illness fearlessly, as she did with every obstacle that stood in her way. She did it with grace but with passion. She suffered tremendously yet never complained. This is the only way Katie knew how to live her life.

Katie was blessed with her wonderful husband, Doug, her amazing mom, dad, brother, brother-in-law and sister-in-law. But, despite only being given 5 years, Katie's heart kept beating a few years longer for the three incredible loves of her life, her beautiful sons, Nick, Alex and Don.

Katie meant so much to all of us, touching each of us in her own unique way. She was nothing short of exceptional when it came to advocating for not only her sons, but endless children and young adults on the autism spectrum. She single-handedly changed the lives of families all over in the most profound way. Katie was the embodiment of someone making lemonade out of lemons and allowed families to look at autism as a different and wonderful way to approach life, not as something tragic.

Katie was passionate about her work with the incredible Children's Health Defense and fought endlessly for vaccine safety and the vaccine injured. She was an active member of our community, especially within the Bedford Central School District, Special Education Parent Teacher Association (SEPTO) and Bedford Autism Spectrum Support (BASS). She loved her Mount Kisco and took great pride in being a part of the Beautification Committee.

The list of Katie's achievements are endless.

Spike Protein 101: A Primer from Dr. Larry Palevsky

SARS-CoV-2_spikesThank you to Laura Hayes for transcribing a 12 minute primer on spike protein production and Covid vaccination by Dr. Larry Palevsky.  Dr. Palevsky brings up what can only be called horrifying questions, all unanswered because the powers that be have never asked. By design.  It's "easy" to say that what you have not looked for doesn't exist. Informally called, the blind eye.

By Laura Hayes

I have been wondering if those injected with the new "vaccines" are shedding that which might harm others with whom they come in contact, with the suspicion that they likely are. 
The video below addresses that, and I can't recommend strongly enough that everyone listen to it (only 12 minutes long).
Many of you know who Dr. Larry Palevsky is, and for those who don't, he is a NY pediatrician who has spoken out about the dangers of vaccines since the late 1990s, when a mother in his practice showed him that there was mercury in the vaccines he was administering to the children in his practice. That moment changed his life, and he began to do further research into vaccines. 
This clip that was sent to me today is a portion of an interview with him. I cannot find the full interview, but found this portion so compelling after listening to it 3 times that I decided to transcribe it. I hope you will first listen to it, then use the attached transcript to read any part you would like to reference again. Click on the second video at the link below (first is of a female, second is Dr. Palevsky). It is 12-minutes long, and worth listening to every minute of it.
For those of us who have children who have been harmed and/or killed by "routine" childhood vaccinations, Dr. Palevsky is a trusted and deeply appreciated rare gem among doctors. He speaks out often, and you can do a search of his name to listen to some of his public speeches, including his powerful testimony before the CT legislature in February, 2020:
I hope you will share this information with those you know, as the future fertility, health, longevity, and survival of humans may be hanging in the balance.

Transcript of Dr. Larry Palevsky:

When studies are done on injections that are thought to be vaccines, we sometimes need 7, 10, or even 15 years, to understand what the injection does to the body, and what it does to those around us.

And so, there’s automatically this assumption that when the authorities say these injections are safe, that we actually have adequate data and adequate observational data to understand whether or not these injections are safe. The bottom line is we don’t have enough data to understand their safety.

The other thing is that we are made to believe in the public eye that this is a vaccine against a viral infection. So, the entire world is thinking that this is a vaccine to protect us against SARS-COV2 infection. And when you have a vaccine that is supposed to be effective as a vaccine, you are supposed to have antibody immunity against the SARS-COV2 virus. And that has never been evaluated with these injections as to whether or not we have antibody immunity to a SARS-COV2 virus. Instead, what we have is the genetic information of what is believed to be a piece of the SARS-COV2 virus, and that piece is called the spike protein. And the technology that is being used is a technology to make this injection that has never been used in vaccine science or methodology before with any kind of success.

CT One Giant Step Closer to Losing Religious Exemption

Health choice 4 action CT
CT HB6423 is moving to the Senate for a vote. Health Choice 4 CT has created this easy to understand analysis of next steps for families. This is a nightmare scenario where children will be "un-enrolled" which is a euphemism for expelled. Healthy children will not be allowed to attend school, like pariahs. America. 2021. A time when race relations and equity are top line news. And here, children of all races, creeds and colors will face discrimination and recrimination not because of the color of their skin, but because of the content (or lack) of their vaccines. No matter what CDC adds to the pediatric list, including COVID, it will be an all or nothing situation. The Nutmeg state has gone nuts.
  1. The bill that passed through the House yesterday on 4/19/2021 includes grandfathering from k-12. Your child must be enrolled in school at PASSAGE. Passage means when the governor signs this into law. If your child is eligible to enroll in kindergarten for September 2021, You need to have a religious exemption on file and enroll them RIGHT NOW before this bill gets signed into law by the governor. You must re-enroll your home schooled kids right now, in order for them to be grandfathered for the duration of their education. The exemption will follow them throughout districts in the state if you change schools or towns.

  2. If your child is in daycare or preschool, you will have until September 2022 To make sure your child is completely caught up on ALL of their immunizations, or submit a catch up letter from your doctor that you are in process of getting that done. There will be no options of private school, private daycare, or private pre-k after September 2022.

In Memoriam: F. Edward Yazbak, MD

FouJohn Stone wrote a tribute to Age of Autism contributor F. Edward Yazbak, following his death on Cape Cod in Massachusetts at age 89. In addition to sharing his writing for the blog, Dr. Yazbak used to drop us an email from time to time, and I remember feeling the old fashioned compassion we used to expect from pediatricians.  Now, long gone. A sad time, when the doctors who truly put our kids' best interests first are leaving us. Our condolences to his family. John's tribute follows the published obituary which read:

Dr. Fouad Edward Yazbak, 89, of West Falmouth, MA, passed away peacefully on April 8th, 2021, joining his cherished wife of 61 years, Maureen (Moynahan) Yazbak who passed way 17 months earlier.

Born in Damanhour, Egypt, he was the son of Dr. Edouard and Eugenie (Farazli) Yazbak and brother to Yvonne and Margaret and brother-in-law to Lawrence (all who predeceased him).

Dr. Yazbak arrived in America in 1957 with his medical degree, $62 and four family photos to join the staff of St. Clare’s Hospital in New York City as an intern. Two weeks later he met Maureen who was completing her nursing education at St. Claire’s. It was love at first sight and they married 6 months later. In 1959, he joined the faculty of Brown University’s Institute of Health Sciences as Pediatric Director of the Child Development Study and Assistant Clinical Director for infectious diseases at Charles V. Chapin Hospital in Providence RI. Dr. and Mrs. Yazbak subsequently began a pediatric practice in Cumberland RI in 1963 from which he retired in 1997. Dr. Yazbak was a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and past president of the staff of Woonsocket Hospital. He was a school physician in Northern Rhode Island for 34 years in service to his community. A proud and grateful naturalized American, he helped several doctors immigrate to America.

Food is Love. Except When It's Poison. Baum Hedlund’s Tainted Baby Food Lawsuit.

Mia before regression
Mia feeding her pal Elmo before Regression

Mangia! It's one of the first words every Italian American baby hears from Mamma or Nonna. Mangia figlia mia! Eat up, my daughter! In my case, I was speaking to my daughter Mia - figlia mia, Mia Noel. And then Gianna and then baby sister Isabella. I only bought Earth's Best organic baby food, beginning with Mia's first spoonful of solids in 1995. It's bad enough I and countless other Moms did not know that vaccines contained bolus doses of mercury and other heavy metals at the time. But our babies’ FOOD? I was so careful. I went without so that I could buy the "safest, healthiest" food for my babies. To what avail? 

Lyn Redwood wrote about the travesty of tainted baby food for Children's Health Defense: The Science Is Clear: Heavy Metals in Baby Food Are Bad for Baby’s Brain A 2019 report by Healthy Babies Bright Futures noted that in addition to heavy metals, baby foods are riddled with other neurotoxic chemicals — including perchlorate, phthalates and glyphosate — all of which can add up to significant health impacts.

A lawsuit underway from the firm Baum Hedlund takes on the companies that not only pulled the wool over consumers' eyes, but companies that have actual LIABILITY for their products.

In Italian, we would say, BASTA! Enough.

Heavy Metals Baby Food Lawsuit | Autism and ADHD

A government report on toxic heavy metals in baby food found that several brands—including some organic—contain arsenic, cadmium, mercury, and lead at high levels that pose significant dangers to the neurodevelopment of children. Indeed, all of these toxic heavy metals have been associated with autism, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and attention deficit disorder in children.

Parents throughout the country are outraged to learn that baby food products from Happy Family Organics, Happy Baby, Gerber, Earth’s Best Organic, Beech-Nut, Plum Organics, Parent’s Choice, and Sprout Organic Food contain “dangerously high levels” of toxic heavy metals. Worse, the major baby food companies behind these brands knowingly sold tainted baby food to unsuspecting parents, according to the report.

Numerous studies have linked toxic heavy metal exposure to behavior impairments. The link is especially pronounced among babies and young children, whose brains are still developing. Even at low levels, exposure to heavy metals can cause serious and irreversible damage to neurological development.

Healthy Connecticut Kids Face Expulsion With No Plan To Educate

7AC2A63D-A63A-4B64-B641-9525B808D38DHarsh. Cruel. Jarring. And true. Don’t forget leprosy. Also allowed. This includes students with autism. 

You'd think after a solid year of watching what happens to children forced out of school, and their families, the mere thought of any reason to keep kids home artificially would be wholly repugnant. But no, here in Connecticut legislators have  been voting with salivating glee to cast the dirty, not-fully-vaccinated, dangerous, non-compliant children out of education.  Soon. And then what?

Age of Autism: Covid Vaccines Are Medical Devices

Lifesite News: US bishop: Choir members, Communion ministers must be ‘fully vaccinated’ While Arkansas rescinded its mask mandate, Bishop Anthony B. Taylor of Little Rock declared masks ‘obligatory’ and vaccines required as churches have their ‘own dynamics.’

Fr. James Altman, St. James Catholic Church, LaCrosse, WI

Father Altman Homily 04.11.2021 - Divine Mercy Sunday

Fr. Altman:

17:21 So let us talk about one particularly blind Pharisee. LifesiteNews reports, and I think people send me this stuff just to get me riled up.

LifeSite News reports that the first bishop of the United States to cancel all public Masses a year ago was Bishop Anthony B. Taylor of Little Rock, Arkansas.

As reported on LifeSite News, Bishop Taylor issued letters in 2020 cancelling Masses and nonessential gatherings, including Confirmations.


Lifesite also reports that in his latest directive, Bishop Taylor wrote, “Choirs can be permitted only when all members have been vaccinated and preferably wearing masks.”

What kind of illogic—God gave him a brain. What kind of brain isn’t he using?

If this injection worked, no need for a mask.

Dear family, it is not a vaccine. It is an injection.

Best Of: Vaccination and Segregation

Sneetch unvaxedNote: This is a BEST OF Cathy wrote back in 2016, and relevant in a more shocking way in 2021.

By Cathy Jameson

It isn’t often that I can’t come up with a topic to write about for a Sunday’s post, but this week, after days of brainstorming, nothing satisfied me.  Not wanting to waste any precious time, on Friday morning I cruised through Google news to see if anything there grabbed my attention.  Something did.  But it wasn’t the pro-vaccine article that grabbed my eye and got my wheels spinning.  It was someone’s comment that piqued my interest. 

Paraphrased, an obviously very pro-vaccine individual told another commenter, who happened to have a vaccine-injured child, that Parents like you who choose to not vaccinate should not be allowed to mingle with the public. 

As terrible as that comment sounded, I wasn’t shocked.  I kept reading. 

Other pro-vaccine commenters began to leave similar messages.  They were in agreement and clarified that The Unvaccinated should be barred from public schools, from stores, and from society in general.    

They continued: 

The Unvaccinated should be corralled into their own society. 

With the hopes that child protective services would soon pay a visit. 

And maybe the sheriff, too.

Your Match Might Want You Vaxxed More than Waxed

Actual Tweet, Name Removed

I guess vax status will be a new dating profile criteria. Like political affiliation or which side of the pillow you prefer (the cool side, thank you very much.) The Tweeter was female, and she was turned down by a male BECAUSE she was vaccinated. I know the headline is irreverent, but it was my first thought when I read this Tweet. And Summer is coming.

Reports of Covid Jab Interrupting and Worsening Menstrual Cycles

StopThe article below is horrifying. Women like my three daughters will never have children, because of their severe autism. But they still have fully functional reproductive systems, and I'm not inclined to give them a potential lifetime of problems.  They have enough on their plates. Piled high. I'm sure the New York Times, Washington Post and other US daily rags (pun fully intended) will follow up to protect American women.


Women say they are having heavier and more painful PERIODS since getting their COVID-19 vaccines - as several claim it has also messed up their monthly cycle

  • Dr. Kate Clancy, a University of Illinois associate professor, said that she'd heard people had experienced changes in their menstruation since getting vaccinated
  • Her tweet prompted other women to share changes to their own periods
  • Several reported that they were bleeding more heavily and for longer than they had before getting the vaccine 
  • A few said they began menstruating in the middle of their cycles, days or weeks before they were supposed to
  • Experts aren't sure why some women might see changes to their periods, and so far there is not enough data to know whether it is connected to the vaccine
  • A small study this year found that some participants saw changes to their menstruation after contracting the virus 

By Carly Stern For

Several women say they have experienced heavier and more painful periods since getting the COVID-19 vaccine, with several also revealing that they have had breakthrough bleeding in the middle of a cycle after getting the shot.

Dr. Kate Clancy, an associate professor at the University of Illinois, tweeted in February that she'd been hearing talk of people who had experienced changes in their menstruation since getting one or two vaccine shots.

Her Twitter thread has prompted more women to share their menstrual concerns on Twitter, revealing their heavy flow, worsened cramps, and irregular timing — with one saying she spent 16 days bleeding after getting the Johnson & Johnson shot.  Read more including the COMMENTS here.

And When I Die

Give me my freedom for as long as I be

All I ask of living is to have no chains on me
All I ask of living is to have no chains on me

I used to love  this very old song by.... Blood, Sweat and Tears. How’s that for a summation of our lives?  We all fear for that day when we leave our loved one(s) behind. What’s your plan for immortality? 

I'm not scared of dying
And I don't really care
If it's peace you find in dying
Well, then let the time be near

If it's peace you find in dying
And if dying time is near, just bundle up my coffin
'Cause it's cold way down there
I hear that it's cold way down there
Yeah, crazy cold way down there

School Bus Debacle

Under_The_Bus_Sign-300Last week, I helped my 20 year old with pre-verbal autism into her school transport van.  There was a substitute driver (again) but I recognized him from more than a year ago. We said, "hello," I closed the door and off went my beautiful daughter. 

30 minutes later, I got a call from the head of transportation that my daughter had not arrived at her school. She had been driven to her OLD SCHOOL 13 miles away down Route 95. The school that CLOSED its doors for good when COVID hit.

Let that sink in for a moment. She expected a normal day. Quick trip. No problem. Instead, she found herself taking a completely different route onto the highway with NO WAY TO SAY "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING??" So I'm yelling for her.

This is autism. The worry. The never ending source of agita and angst and outright terror. For her. For me. For all of us.

Johnson & Johnson Halted in US

6D520DE2-002D-4215-AC18-0767651832BEBreaking news. Johnson & Johnson lives up to its reputation. And civil litigation specialists from coast to coast are weeping over the lost billions in potential lawsuit fees. The experimental Covid vaccines are exempt from lawsuits thanks to the US Federal Government’s PREP act. Operation Warped speed is a boondoggle. Haste makes waste. Period. From ABC News:

US calls for temporary halt on Johnson & Johnson vaccination over blood clot fears

Opinion Letter: Doubts about the vaccine shouldn’t be disparaged

Look before you leapThanks to loyal AofA reader, contributor and donor (xox) Josh Mazer for sharing his most recent opinion letter from Maryland's Capital Gazette.

Letters: Doubts about the vaccine shouldn’t be disparaged

Iris Krasnow’s disparaging, vaccine-hesitant column about frontline health care at Anne Arundel Medical Center will not help increase vaccine uptake (The Capital, April 4). Addressing their concerns might. Ironically, the “first, do no harm’ standard Krasnow demands shows the refusers may be on firm scientific and medical grounds.

Reported links to blood clotting disorders have caused numerous European nations, Canada and Australia, to suspend or restrict the use of the AstraZeneca shot. A Journal of the American Medical Association research letter on March 8 found allergic reactions occurred in 2.10% of 64,900 employees who got the vaccine at Mass General Bingham hospital, and “severe reactions consistent with anaphylaxis occurred at a rate of 2.47 per 10,000 vaccinations.”

Some school districts across the country have temporarily closed due to mass absenteeism after school personnel was vaccinated.

Dr. Gregory Michael died from acute immune thrombocytopenia 16 days after receiving a vaccine. Dr. Jerry L. Spivak, an expert on blood disorders at Johns Hopkins University, said, “I think it is a medical certainty that the vaccine was related” but also called it likely a very rare occurrence.

In Maryland, the federal Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System shows 28 deaths reported after COVID shots. Correlation does not prove causation, yet the data is concerning nonetheless.

FDA clinical studies show vaccinated people still acquire and may spread the virus. Hundreds of “breakthrough” cases are now reported in vaccinated people across the nation, something that can happen with any vaccines used on a mass scale.

I personally am grateful for the COVID vaccination. I support everyone’s choice. Divisive rhetoric targeting health care workers is counterproductive. These people are risking their lives for us. Listening with an open mind to their concerns will bring us together as a community, and help make us all safer.

Abandoned in Bridgeport

WeepAutism? Something else? Well, according to ABC News, the boy was unable to answer any other identifying information. 


5-year-old found abandoned on the street in Connecticut on a rainy day, woman charged

Police said it appeared the child was left there by a Black female driving a white Infinity Q50 or Q40 sedan. The boy answered to the name "Prince," but was unable to provide any other identifying information.

— A Connecticut mother is facing charges after police say she abandoned her child in the pouring rain.

Investigators say 41-year-old Sharon Williams stopped at the corner of Burroughs Street and East Main in Bridgeport and left the 5-year-old boy, who has a disability, alone in the streets.

Human Sacrifice to a Volcano for the god Covaxus

VolcanoFeeling Mayan? Aztec? St. Vincentian? Sick to your stomach?

This weekend, Celebrity Cruise lines announced a rescue effort in the Carribbean.  Only the vaccinated will be allowed to board and escape harm.  Is this edict from Celebrity Cruise lines or the PM of St. Vincent? No matter, it's clearly discriminatory and the fact that there's no eruption of horror in the media says the unvaccinated are lower than steerage.  And here we are.

In a tweet sent out this morning, Celebrity Cruise CEO Lisa Lutoff-Perlo stated: “Sent Celebrity Reflection to St. Vincent to help with volcano evacuation efforts. Taking all precautions and so grateful we can help the island’s residents!”
Only Vaccinated People Will Be Able To Board The Rescue Ships

Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves said in a press conference that only vaccinated people from the island would be eligible to board the cruise ships to take temporary refuge on another island.

St. Lucia, Grenada, Barbados, and Antigua have all volunteered to accept evacuees, also on the condition that they be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Cat’s 2021 Autism Action Month Playlist

Playlistby Cathy Jameson

I never know which songs I’ll share for this fun Sunday post until I hear them.  That’s why I keep a little notepad in my car and write down titles and lyrics of songs that I like.  Some of them remind me of someone I know.  Others bring up a memory of something I’ve had to do for my children.  Some songs just evoke the perfect emotion – happy, sad, and even righteous anger. 

I’ve loved being able to share just a few of my favorites previous years.  Here’s my current playlist for 2021, a year that just doesn’t make sense.  

White Town – Your Woman

Oh, hee hee hee! Ha ha ha!  I heard this one after listening to the news one day last year.  Big Pharma, Big Brother, Big Government and Tony Fauci were spouting all sorts of doom and gloom on the news talk station.  Doom!  Gloom!  But, wait! Help was on the way!  But first…more masks, more quarantines, and ah, yes, more restrictions.  Then talk of a magical vaccine that could end all of this filled the airwaves.  If only people would comply.  Tired Tony just couldn’t wait to talk about that.  I couldn’t take the drivel anymore, so I changed the station.  Then I laughed. 

Boy, you can't play me that way

Well, I guess what you say is true

I could never be the right kind of girl for you

Dear dear Tony, I could never be your woman.  Ever. ;)

Alarm – Rescue Me

Lock downs.  Neighbors ratting on neighbors.  Virtual signally.  Vaccine passports.  If I didn’t live and breathe it, I would’ve thought the last year and a half was a story from a bad novel.  But here we are over a year later living some absolutely crazy times.  Some days, it makes me want to run far, far away.  Anyone wanna go in on a deserted island with me?  Please?

Rescue me
I'm on the run like a refugee
Rescue me
Oh come on rescue me

Do hang in there, friends!  I know the fight is hard, but I do believe some good will come. 


I hope. 

I Don’t Know How But They Found Me – Leave Me Alone

This one is such a funky song.  The lyrics are all over the place, but when I hear this line…

Now I want you to leave me alone

…I crank it.

Rapper DMX: How Long Before The Levee Breaks

89EFD83F-1029-4086-B1D2-CD41E92FD1F2Rapper DMX, Earl Simmons passed away yesterday.   This makes another report of a prominent African American suffering an injury post Covid jab. Simmons was in the hospital fighting for his life after a "catastrophic" heart attack. He was 50 years young.  Yes, he had a difficult past and suffered from addiction, and surely that takes a toll on the heart. He was also a son, a friend, a musical icon and a Dad. There are questions building like a stack of sandbags. 

An autopsy will be conducted to determine DMX's cause of death. The rapper had struggled with drug addiction since his teenage years, first becoming addicted to crack cocaine when he was just 14. Richman would not confirm previous reports that an overdose may have contributed to his heart attack. Premature rumors about the rapper's death swirled on social media since his hospitalization. As recently as Thursday night, DMX's manager denied those rumors and asked people to stop spreading them out of respect for the rapper's family. Source: NBC News

DMX. Midwin Charles Esq. Hammerin' Hank Aaron. Marvelous Marvin Hagler. All prominent African Americans who received a COVID vaccine and died sudden, unexplained deaths. Marvin Hagler and now DMX had family or friends saying they had gotten the C jab, and then radio silence and back pedaling damage control.

NPR (national pharma radio) says

DMX is in the hospital on life support after suffering a heart attack. The rapper's lawyer, Murray Richman, told The Associated Press on Saturday evening that DMX was admitted to New York's White Plains Hospital and that "he's quite ill."

Murray did not confirm reports that the 50-year-old rapper and actor had overdosed on drugs. He did not say what caused the heart attack.

"Murray did not confirm reports of a drug overdose."  File that with "When did you stop beating your wife, Mr. Jones?" Who was reporting a drug overdose? Read what the family said to The Washington News Post:

In a contrary report, DMX Received Covid Vaccine Days Before Heart Attack – Family Says NO DRUGS! (EXCLUSIVE)

In an EXCLUSIVE interview, MTO News spoke with DMX’ family member who told us that the rapper received the COVID vaccine about a week before he suffered from the heart attack.

DMX’s family member told MTO News, “[DMX] got the vaccine when they opened it up to people over 50. He got it so that he could go travel and perform, stuff like that.”

The Cult Mindset that Injury is Honorable

Tinky Stinky. Dropsy. Wah Wah. Poo.

C vax injury is the new autism - hide it, deny it, make it seem normal, forget the real pain & suffering, tell folks to go about their biz, go back to the well of harm over & over. 

Read the screen shot below. Take note of grieving family members saying despite death, it's still important to take the C jab. "We trust the science” They did. They trusted the rushed experimental product that they were told was the solution. That is cult thinking.  It has been carefully cult-ivated for decades. We know this firsthand in the autism v injury community. It’s human nature to want to avoid buyers remorse at all costs. But when is enough too much?  People who’ve been jabbed and experienced  severe reactions saying they'd do it again, and some taking the second dose like martyrs and sacrificial lambs.

And there's no Noo Noo to tidy up. We're all on our own. Our true condolences to the family. 


Dr. Meryl Nass: Latest vaccine flip-flop gives the vaccine game away


The following is excerpted from Dr. Meryl Nass' blog with permission.

The Astra-Zeneca "cheap and easy to store" "workhorse" vaccine causes blood clots in general, and in particular clots in the venous sinuses of the brain, which have killed or wounded a number of people, especially women under 55.  

From StatNews:

Disorders caused by blood clots, including heart attacks, vein thromboses, and strokes, are common. But the types of clots that may be linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine are exceedingly rare. They have been marked by low levels of platelets — the blood cell fragments that normally cause clotting. 

The types of clots seen include cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, or CVST, a type of blood clot that occurs in the veins that drain blood from the brain, and a similar condition in the abdomen, known as splanchic vein thrombosis. The clots sometimes occur in combination with bleeding.

From the Washington Post:

The European Medicines Agency, the European Union’s regulator, said it is investigating at least 44 cases of the rare brain clots and at least 14 deaths among about 9.2 million vaccinations in 30 European countries...

As of March 29, Germany’s regulator has reported 31 cases of the unusual blood clots in 2.7 million people vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine, nine of whom have died.

The J and J vaccine was also associated with blood clots in the clinical trial data presented to FDA.  Both vaccines use an adenovirus vector to deliver DS DNA that codes for spike protein, and human cellular machinery produces this protein, for an uncertain period of time in uncertain quantities. So blood clotting may be due to the adenovirus vector, or to the spike protein, or to something entirely different.

The mRNA vaccines use mRNA to code for the spike, also using cellular machinery to produce the spike protein.  The end result of all 4 vaccines is similar, and again, we do not know for how long the body makes this protein.

If the spike itself induces clotting, which is a reasonable hypothesis scientists have put forth, but is unproven, then all 4 vaccines would be thrombogenic (induce clotting). Dr. Patrick Whelan tried to warn the FDA about this possibility, but was ignored.  He wrote:

Meinhardt et al. (Nature Neuroscience 2020, in press) show that the spike protein in brain endothelial cells is associated with formation of microthrombi (clots), and like Magro et al. do not find viral RNA in brain endothelium. In other words, viral proteins appear to cause tissue damage without actively replicating virus.

Is it possible the spike protein itself causes the tissue damage associated with Covid-19? Nuovo et al (in press) have shown that in 13/13 brains from patients with fatal COVID-19, pseudovirions (spike, envelope, and membrane proteins) without viral RNA are present in the endothelia of cerebral microvessels.

This is frightening information, providing a strong hint of the spike protein's potential toxicity.  Read more HERE.

Midwin Charles Dies at 47

3BE85D20-771C-490E-A685-5DB2C1C12023Beautiful attorney Midwin Charles’ family reports her untimely death, cause undisclosed at age 47. She Tweeted she was vaxxed on 3/1. Is there a connection? Is there greater risk for POC??? Like Hank Aaron & Marvin Hagler. Older men, yes. But also said to be in good health at time of their sudden death. We must ask hard questions, or we are NOT a nation seeking health, a way out of Covid, justice or equality!



Love Notes

3F36A1AC-AEA1-46F0-979E-7F93B1ECEED9Another love note!!! Sigh.... in yesterday’s  email. I respond with kindness. Always. How can we teach or support across the spectrum? Maybe we can’t. Would this e-mailer ever support our more severely affected loved ones? Does (s)she even acknowledge they exist? This is April, Autism Action Month. I feel sad when we get emails or comments like this. I think of a quite possibly lonely guy or gal who feels genuine mistrust and is often alienated because of his or her words. This is someone’s “child” too.  I answered with Dan Olmsted's signature response: "Thank you for emailing us. We always enjoy hearing from our readers."  


As someone on the autism spectrum I just wanted to tell you that your website is one of the most offensive ill-informed pieces of garbage I have ever had the displeasure of coming across. For one, calling autism an ‘epidemic’ is pretty offensive to most of us that have it and are happy with who we are. Also, vaccines don’t cause autism, I cannot believe I’m actually having to say that in 2021 but I suppose ignorance knows no timeline. If you have a conscience, you’ll stop spewing your pseudoscientific garbage and go back to tweeting nasty comments at Bill Gates and the rest of the “globalists”.

The Strange Sinovac Vaccine Phenomenon: Countries Report Increased Cases After Using Vaccine

By Eva Zhao

April 3, 2021 Updated: April 4, 2021

The Hong Kong government recently rolled out a large-scale vaccination plan against the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, commonly known as COVID-19, but it’s been mired by frequent reports of serious adverse reactions. In just one month, 13 people died in Hong Kong after being inoculated, 11 of whom had been injected with the Sinovac vaccine, a Chinese domestically made vaccine.

The CCP has not reported a single case of serious side effects or death after it announced the administering of 100 million doses of the Sinovac vaccine in China on March 28.

But there are four strange phenomena of the Chinese Sinovac vaccine, analyzed as follows.

No Deaths Reported in China

United States Capitol Police Honor Those With Autism


So much of the news today is grim and worrisome. As a nation, we are at each other's throats because of sociopolitical change, Covid, election fall out and more. April is typically loaded with feel good autism stories. Some are maddening, others give us hope for the future.  This United States Capitol Police patch was created for Autism Action Month 2021. Here's the story of how I came in possession of this badge, because (say it with me) all roads lead to autism. I have had helpers for my three daughters over the years. One young woman joined our ragtag army when she was in college. Her older brother has autism, and attends the same day program as my two oldest daughters.  He's tall, handsome and has a smile that could light up the night sky. His sister came to us fully trained, because she had lived with autism all of her life. Fast forward four years, and she achieved her dream job - she was recruited to the United States Capitol Police force!  I watched her swearing in ceremony on Zoom last year. Her first months on the job have been harrowing, as you can imagine. She has seen two colleagues die, more than many police officers will see in a lifetime. But she's tough, dedicated and so ready to move up the ranks of the force. And she will be a strong voice for people with autism who may come into contact with the police.  That's something to salute.

New Jersey 101.5's Franco Questions Rutgers' U Student Vax Mandate

Rutgers welcome
Temps must be rising at New Jersey 101.5.  Below is an opinion piece questioning Rutgers' University's announcement that it will REQUIRE Covid vaccination for all students.


God bless Serena DiMaso, the lone Republican lawmaker who is questioning Rutgers’ new mandate to require vaccines for all students.

And when I say “vaccine,” I use the term loosely because this protocol is actually an experimental gene therapy cloaked with the name "vaccine” so that the federal government can’t be sued for it if it doesn’t work out well.

DiMaso, according to an article on, is writing a bill to prevent Rutgers from requiring kids to be guinea pigs with this injection in order to qualify for the Sept. 21 enrollment.

DiMaso understands that forcing kids to take this “vaccine” is wrong, and she also understands the hypocrisy of only requiring it of students, not teachers. That said, according to Children’s Health Defense, a children’s health watch group run by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Rutgers is being warned about the legality of mandating the vaccine. According to the website, RFK Jr. wrote to Rutgers president Holloway and reminded him of the federal statute:

“Federal law 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(e)(1)(A)(ii)(III) requires that the person to whom an EUA vaccine is administered be advised, ‘of the option to accept or refuse administration of the product, of the consequences, if any, of refusing administration of the product, and of the alternatives to the product that are available and of their benefits and risks.’”

Bottom line is this is an emergency use “vaccine" and cannot be forced upon people.

Will Rutgers heed the warnings of Kennedy as well as the obvious controversy that will inevitably surround their decision to force the shot into students? Will they stop to think about the dangerous precedent they are setting?

Only time will tell.

When I use the term “dangerous” in speaking about the mandate to vaccinate all Rutgers students that was recently announced, I’m not talking about the danger of the “vaccine" itself, although I believe that that danger is a possibility. I am talking about the danger of the mandate itself — not to mention the precarious road we are on when it comes to the erosion of freedom and liberty and the proliferation of government overreach, particularly in terms of one’s health.

The post above reflects the thoughts and observations of New Jersey 101.5 talk show host Judi Franco. Any opinions expressed are Judi's own.|

Happy Easter to All the Age of Autism Country Bunnies

Happy Easter Chick toting flowers
We each carry a heavy load.

Cathy has today off to enjoy her family. We want to wish all of our readers a Happy Spring, Happy Passover and Happy Easter. When I was a girl, I loved an old storybook, first published in 1939 called The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes. It's a tale of a Mother bunny who has many, many children to tend, and who dreams of becoming one of the Easter bunnies.  The book was well ahead of its time.  There doesn't seem to be a Daddy Bunny. And the Mother Bunny is not only female, she is a brown bunny. The rich men bunnies who laugh at her dreams? They are not.

To become an Easter bunny, the wise old chief Bunny gives her a difficult task. She must complete an arduous journey to bring a basket to a sick boy.  No one supports her. No one thinks she has a chance.  How can she leave her children for an entire night to test to be an Easter bunny?  Take a few minutes to listen to the story. I think we can all relate to loving our kids so much, we can move heaven and earth. XOX 


An Unhealthy Person Is Our Best Customer

38B03F7A-3842-4192-9B28-F6911549878EThis photo of a clearly proud and happy woman was bouncing around social media.  She looks quite proud, and I hope she is and and remains very healthy. She's holding up her Covid CDC card while chomping on a rather tasty looking donut. Perhaps she took part in the Krispy Kreme promotion. Do they have sprinkle donuts?  I have no idea, I live in Dunkin Donuts country. Everywhere I scroll, I see people waving their vax cards like wee American flags.

What I do not see, is any attention to H-E-A-L-T-H.

Our American Covid protection campaign seems not about becoming or staying healthy for one minute. How often do you see workers standing outside their offices, masks around their chins, puffing away on cigarettes? Personal responsibility is limited to masks and vaccinations.  I haven't seen any public service announcements offering to help them quit smoking to protect their lungs, have you? I see less than zero attention to strengthening the host - that's you and me - to ward off infection. In fact, there seems to be a complete disconnect between personal health responsibility and the ability to avoid contracting or transmitting Covid.  We are told that we're irresponsible if we don't get jabbed or wear a mask, but that's the beginning, middle and end our what's required of us.

The headline I wrote is a throwback to the TV commercials for an off-price clothing chain called Syms.  Now long closed, Sy Sym's daughter Marci would say, "An educated consumer is our best customer."  Those were the days. Syms is long gone, and so is our health.

Harris County Texas Sheriff's Department Honors and Helps People With Autism

Brandon Guppy BadgeMichelle Guppy shared this terrific story from the Harris County, Texas Sheriff's Department on Facebook yesterday.  Readers know Michelle from her blog From Hell to Hopeism, where she chronicles life with her adult son Brandon.

A Message from Sheriff Ed Gonzalez

During the month of April, hundreds of our sworn personnel will proudly wear a commemorative blue badge on their uniform that prominently features the autism awareness puzzle piece to bring attention to Autism Spectrum Disorder and to support those living with it.

We are in our communities across Harris County every day, and this is a small way to send a big message: We’re here to serve all residents with compassion and understanding. 

The distinctive light blue badge with the puzzle piece emblem and engraved words “Help Create a Kinder World” reinforces our promise to do all we can to improve our interactions with residents, including those with a developmental disability or those experiencing a mental health or emotional crisis. It serves as a reminder to residents of what we can accomplish together. 

This is the first year of the Blue Badges for Autism Awareness program and the Sheriff’s Office ordered 734 commemorative badges, more than any other law enforcement agency in the nation! 

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, one in 54 children has autism. Just this year, deputies responded to more than 1,370 calls for service with a mental health component. Many of those calls involved a person with autism.

Last fall, we launched a new initiative called Project Guardian to help our deputies minimize stress by alerting them in advance that they’re about to interact with a person on the autism spectrum.

Kentucky Senate Bill 8 Protects Exemptions During Epidemics

KentuckyKY Senate Bill 8 Passed Protecting the Right of Persons to Object to Immunizations Required During Epidemics Based upon Religious or Conscientiously Held Beliefs

From National Health

Congratulations to Kentucky Medical Freedom Coalition for their win on securing into law the religious and conscientiously held belief exemption for any vaccine that might be mandated by the state due to an epidemic!  The Governor did not sign the bill, but also did not veto it so it became law on Saturday, March 22nd 2021.  Great work and thank you to everyone who worked to support this legislation!

Here is a link to access the bill (Senate Bill 8):  Kentucky Legislative Research Commission Search Options

Here is the bill language that now protects the health freedom right to make your own health care decisions regarding vaccines during an epidemic:

 (2)     In the event of an epidemic in a given area, the Cabinet for Health and Family Services may require the immunization of all persons within the area of epidemic, against the disease responsible for such epidemicexcept that any administrative regulation promulgated pursuant to KRS Chapter 13A, administrative order issued by the cabinet, or executive order issued pursuant to KRS Chapter 39A requiring such immunization shall not include:

Covid Vaccine Clinic Today at Age of Autism Headquarters!

Bunny syringe

Come one! Come all!

Age of Autism is proudly sponsoring a Covid  vaccination clinic at our swanky headquarters here in Connecticut! Not local? No worries. We will send our corporate jet to your closest airfield, rush a limo to your door and then whisk you to our clinic where you will be treated with the kiddingest of kid gloves. Driving? We're at 1313 Mockingbird Lane. The Last house on the left. The Easter Bunny him/her/itself will be administering both lollipops and the vaccines.

(Note: Connecticut moved one giant step toward losing the religious exemption yesterday. Soon, children may not be able to attend school not because of a pandemic but for lack of any vaccine on the ever growing pediatric schedule including flu, HPV and soon, most likely, Covid.  If you have taken any of the Covid vaccines, we respect your right to medical choice and decision making, and hope you extend the same courtesy to those who do want the Covid jab.  Thank you.  Happy April 1.

revitaPOP B12 Lollipops Closing Their Business

RevitaPOP_grid_6My goodness, how time flies. How many AofA readers remember the launch of the B12 revitaPOP at Autism One? They have announced the end of their road, and are closing out their remaining inventory. The pops gave a terrific "ping" of focus and energy and tasted great. In 2021, we are so separate from one another, the biomed community that thrived and supported each other closely has been replaced by Facebook's tenuous connections. The old Yahoo groups are gone. The very "thing" joined us as a family because of the harm it caused is now the savior of the world. It's a sharp kick in the gut. The old timers are now... fossils, this dinosaur included, who is revitaPOOPED out.


After 14 Years It's time to wrap up revitaPOP. The current inventory is expiring and will not be refreshed. All product has been tested and is still meeting full standards of new product. This is our final sale until the inventory is gone. 34.99 for each set of 3 bags. (3 for the price of 1) Please feel free to stock up and use them as long as you'd like.
We are so grateful for have served this amazing community. We thank all of our customers, all of you for the many years of support, all of your thank you notes and pictures. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We love you.

CT Votes on Party Lines to Remove Religious Exemption Bills Forward

Locked out of schoolFrom CT Freedom Alliance:

Just moments ago, the CT Public Health Committee voted on party lines (all Democrats in favor, all Republicans opposed) to pass both S.B. 568 AN ACT ELIMINATING THE NONMEDICAL EXEMPTION TO THE IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENT and H.B. 6423 out of committee, two identical bills that would deny children in CT an education unless they receive every vaccination required by statute for school attendance. On a day known to Christians the world over as "Spy Wednesday," or the day that Judas set in motion his plan to betray Jesus Christ, the Public Health Committee betrayed our children. Their attack on children is truly reprehensible, as this bill will discriminate based on religious belief, and in practice will also have a disproportionately adverse effect on children of color, and children with special needs.

Both bills now move to the House and Senate floors for deliberation and votes. Please immediately reach out to every member of the House and Senate, and let them know why you oppose this legislation! For the Senator and Representative who represents your home district, please be sure to state clearly that you are their constituent. Here are the email addresses for every member of the House and Senate:

Connecticut Could Lose Religious Exemption Today

Leaving ctImportant update from Kevin Barry of First Freedoms on the imminent loss of the religious exemption in Connecticut, the home state of Age of Autism. Tomorrow begins Autism Action month, April Fool's for sure. With COVID, vaccines are now seen as a global savior, more powerful than any other religion.

March 30, 2021

On February 22, 2021,  three Republican members of the Connecticut Public Health Committee wrote a letter to Governor Ned Lamont detailing 31 questions regarding the proposed bill to repeal the state's religious exemption to vaccination. 

Read the letter here.

The Republican Senators had to take this step because the CT Department of Public Health (DPH) and the CT State Department of Education (SDE) did not testify in person during the 24 hour public hearing on February 16th.

On March 26, 2021, DPH and SDE responded to the 31 questions.

Read the response here.

On March 31st (today), the CT Public Health Committee will vote on the bill.  

Patricia Finn Wins New Battle Against NY State Over Disability, Vaccine Exemptions and School Attendence

P FinnIn these alarming times it is pleasant to note the latest in a string of legal victories by Patricia Finn against New York State. In this case a Supreme Court judge granted a restraining order against the state for preventing a medically fragile child, who had not been fully vaccinated from attending school remote school attendance. Finn’s site reports (HERE):


NY Judge Orders Medically Exempt Student

Back to School, Remotely.

The Law Offices of Patricia Finn Attorney, P.C., has just obtained another temporary restraining order in another New York State Medical Exemption case. Last week, a Supreme Court Judge Ordered a defendant school district to immediately readmit a medically fragile child back into school although the child is not fully vaccinated. The student had a certified medical exemption from the family physician waiving the school required vaccinations that had been declined by the school district, and the student's remote learning access was shut off. The parent filed an appeal to the New York State Commissioner of Education seeking a Stay of the school’s decision that was denied. The §310 Appeal to the Commissioner was then withdrawn, and the student’s parent refiled in state court obtaining a temporary restraining order permitting the student back into school while the case is pending in the Supreme Court.

This is a big win for all school kids in the state, and the second time a New York Court has restrained a school district from excluding non-vaccinated children in two separate lawsuits brought by Patricia Finn Attorney, P.C.

Yale Robotics Lab to Pay $15 Per Day to Adults with Autism Who Participate In Study

Yale roboticsYALE University in New Haven, Connecticut is offering $15 a day for adults with autism to participate in a study for the Robotics Lab. It seems the robots will ultimately assist adults with autism to find jobs. Laudable.

$15 a day for 2 hours of work for 7 days. That's $7.50 an hour. Minimum wage is $12.00 here in Connecticut. Yale's tuition is $55,000+ a year. I wish Dan Olmsted were here to share his thoughts about his alma mater.


Our ready-to-go robot system aims to improve its users’ tolerance to everyday interruptions with efficient and relevant training. Over time, we expect the interruptions will become less disruptive, allowing them to return to their main task more quickly. Our motivation in developing this system is to promote the employability of adults with autism.

Adults diagnosed with autism can declare their interest in participating in this study by completing this short survey:

Participating in our study means training during a 2-hour window per day for at least 7 days. We will be paying participants $15 per day of active participation. More details about the study and the training provided by our robot are included in this summary sheet (also attached).

Thank you,

Rebecca Ramnauth 
Yale Social Robotics Lab |

Project Details

We’ve developed a robot to provide efficient and relevant training to improve users’ tolerance to interruptions. We expect users will improve their tolerance for work-related interruptions where, with consistent practice, interruptions will become less disruptive, allowing them to return to their original task more quickly.

What are you asking me to do?

If you agree to take part, your participation in this study will involve you engaging in short conversations with a social robot, and some of the discussions may include performing certain tasks. You will also be responding to other types of interruptions initiated by the robot (such as questions or commonplace sounds).

You will be asked to:

Work with the research team to set up the robot system

Specify which days and times you can expect to engage in a training session

Commit to your specified schedule and actively participate in training sessions

Weasel Words From Oregon Health Authority

Pregnancy graphic
These are weasel words.  Who remembers, "Autism like symptoms" which meant, "Autism, but we can't say so and jeopardize the entire program?"

Limited data = we don’t know.

Believe = maybe.

Unlikely = could be but we only want to scare you one way.

Specific risk = we don’t have clinical trial designed outcome reports so we can generalize for bow because these are experimental products.

Glad to see that  Oregon has adopted gender neutral language regarding pregnancy, as you can read. At least they have the social science down pat. We have no short term studies, let alone long term studies on Covid vaccines while pregnant. It's a complete crapshoot.

When I was pregnant in 1994, I remember walking as far away from the office microwave as I could.  When I was pregnant in 1996, I was aghast and terrified because I had had a Scotch and soda during my early pregnancy before I knew I was expecting Gianna.  In 2000 when I was pregnant, I should have smoked crack and eaten spoiled meat.

Wat a difference 20 years makes, eh?

Shingles Adds Another Level of Fear

Gift bad wrappingBreaking news:

COVID-19 increases chance of getting shingles; doctors advise getting both vaccines

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — As the nation focuses on the COVID-19 vaccine, there is another vaccine doctors want you to get, especially if you’re 55 and older.

Doctors say your chances of developing shingles will increase dramatically if you’ve had COVID-19. They’re strongly advising people to get vaccinated against shingles.

Shingles is a reactivation of chickenpox that ravages the body with extremely painful blisters, and it tends to linger. Those who’ve had chickenpox can develop shingles later in life. The virus lives in your system and will remain dormant until there’s an outbreak, which can be triggered by stress and a weakened immune system, which is exactly what doctors have reported seeing in COVID-19 patients.

The new Covid jabs have never been tested with other jabs. But here, a doctor is telling Americans to get both at once. The sum of the whole could be much worse than the parts. But we do not know. Shingles is a dreadful condition. No one wants them. This is a new level of fear to move the vaccine "hesitant." Who knows if the COVID vaccine itself will trigger Shingles? No one. Soon Doctors will likely tell college students to get their meningitis and HPV jabs when they get COVID. Why not? Then babies can get their full CDC pediatric schedule PLUS the Covid jab. 

President Biden Flip Flops on Vaxports: CNN Reports

Flip flop"This is the future, and we should be comfortable with it.  You're going to gain freedom, you'll probably be Water fountainable to get certain jobs. It gives you an incentive to overcome vaccine hesitancy." Listen to Art Caplan write off entire nations who might be harmed economically because they do not have access to the vaccine. Hint, it won't be first world nations, will it?

We'll call them Joe Biden laws. Nothing to crow about.


Washington (CNN) The Biden administration is currently working to develop a system for people to prove they've been vaccinated against the coronavirus, according to a senior administration official.

Multiple government agencies are engaged in conversations and planning, coordinated by the White House, as this kind of system will play a role in multiple aspects of life, including potentially the workforce, the official said.
President Joe Biden has predicted that life in the US could be back to normal by Christmas, and as more Americans are vaccinated each day, these vaccine credentials -- commonly called "vaccine passports" -- could be key to a return to normalcy by the end of the year.
Some sectors, meanwhile, like the travel industry, have clamored for a uniform system to be developed as they seek a return to normalcy. Governments around the world may seek proof of vaccinations before foreigners can enter their borders again.
The administration's plans were first reported by The Washington Post.

The Biden administration previously said the federal government should not be involved in efforts to create a vaccine passport system to verify that people have been vaccinated.

Same Story, Different Year

Repeat repeatBy Cathy Jameson

Edited just a tad to make it today's Sunday post, I'm sharing something I wrote on one of my social media accounts two years ago this week.  The news I mention was about the loss of rights happening in both New York and California.  If you recall, legislative measles had been making the rounds.  The only way to stop them was with a vaccine.  I believe that the pro-vaccine measles legislation that stripped personal rights back then, stripped personal rights back then and as far back as 2014, absolutely helped open the door to the shenanigans we're witnessing today. 

Responding to the news conferences that had taken place that day, I had thought what I'd heard was bizarre.  Bizarre doesn't come close to describing the vaccine news I see coming out these days...


26 March 2019 - From NY to CA, today's vaccine news is so dang bizarre.  If you missed it, in NY...hide your wives and hide your children!  From CA, the little bit of freedom you thought you had is going to be even less.  I just watched the news conference.  All I can say is oof.  And this:

So some kids, like the immunocompromised, can't be vaccinated and are given a "free pass" from vaccines due to their individual medical needs.  Maybe they have been vaccinated previously but now cannot because of special circumstances (cancer, chemo treatment, organ transplant, etc.).  Parents of the immunocompromised are encouraged to share their kids' story and also to refuse vaccines.  I don't agree with the next thing that comes out of some of those parents' mouths -- they say that they* depend on my child's vaccines to give their child protection.   It's a nice thought, like rainbows and unicorns are nice, but our immune systems do not work in synergy like that.

That said, I have a question.  What about the other kids who were vaccinated and also now cannot be vaccinated?  Or shouldn't be?

Today, some other kids can't follow the recommended schedule, and many shouldn't follow it based on their past vaccination experience.  They may not be classified in their medical file as immunocompromised as cancer patients are, but don't these other kids matter, too?  And what of the parents of this group of children who we've been calling vaccine injured.  Those parents are constantly being beat up for telling their story, which I find odd because it's the same story:

Kid was vaccinated.

Kid cannot now be vaccinated.

Parents learned that.

Parents acted on that.

The immunocompromised parents are given sympathy.  But the vaccine injured parents are glared at in angst and accused of spreading diseases they don't even have.  Both groups of children (and some adults, I should add) have to proceed with caution with medical procedures, to include receiving liability-free vaccines.

Tomorrow All Kids Must Test & Ride Autonomous School Busses

EC4EB8DE-999F-45AA-9BBC-17AEA6F9E1E2Great news!!! We can end global warming save the planet! You just need to put your child on an experimental, driver-free, autonomous school bus that uses a never before successfully employed type of nuclear fuel source. There’s no driver, or helper, but your child will be safely latched in while in motion, like a rollercoaster. Weeee! The safety harnesses work well most of the time and there have only been a few kids choked to death... scratch that. There have been no safety issues (in students who rode on Leap Year the 29th with no glasses, slender body types between 4’3 and 4’4” and blood type AB-.) Bonus? The bus manufacturing plants will employ thousands of workers who have been displaced from their jobs, so it’s imperative that you help them. The schools say it’s safe. The State and Federal government say it is safe.  And it’s going to be the only legal way to attend school as legislation is sweeping across the states. A few housekeeping details: If it crashes, you can not sue anyone associated with the bus, the schools, the state. By July, these busses will also replace all city and town busses so adults can ride them too, or a least share the roads and highways with them. And by 2023,  cars will no longer have a “driver’s side.” All vehicles will be mandated to go driver free. You can keep your old steering wheel dinosaur, but you will face steep tolls on all roads. Relax! Watch Tik Tok on Route 95. Surf the web on 1A! Sound good? No?



Lupron Maim to Miracle

LonelyRemember Lupron? It was in the news a decade or more ago. It's a drug that slows or reverses puberty. When used as a treatment to help manage some of the worst symptoms of autism, it was seen as draconian punishing, akin to flogging a child on the town square. Only the most horrible parents and irresponsible doctors would consider using this powerful drug to "change" their children. Children who were wracked with aggression, pain, screaming, gut agony and struggling so very badly. Left to languish from this evil drug.

In the early-mid 2000s, Lupron was assailed as a chemical castration drug - Chemical Castration Drug Peddled As Autism TreatmentChemical Castration Drug Peddled As Autism Treatment Source: Disablity Scoop

In 2021, Lupron is offered to children who do not identify with their birth assigned gender. Parents are encouraged to learn their options to halt puberty.

Puberty can be confusing or difficult for a child who is transgender, genderqueer, nonbinary or questioning their gender.

Puberty blockers, also called hormone blockers, help delay unwanted physical changes that don’t match someone’s gender identity. Delaying these changes can be an important step in a young person’s transition. It can also give your child more time to explore their options before deciding whether or how to transition.

Lupron was considered unsafe and TOXIC for use in treatment of symptoms of autism: From the Guardian in 2009, ...the imposition of dehumanising and dangerous treatments on children with autism is a more immediate and pressing problem. Toxic treatments for autistic children

Today? Look at what a major US Children's Hospital has on their website:

Most experts, including our team, believe that puberty blockers are safe:

The Endocrine Society and the World Professional Association for Transgender Health support the use of puberty blockers for kids who want to delay or prevent unwanted physical changes.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved puberty blockers for children who start puberty at a young age.

The denial of this treatment was never about danger to children with autism. It was about the wholesale refusal to find, acknowledge, approve or offer any treatments at all. Our children felt miserable in their own bodies, and no one cared.  For those families whose kids are facing battles with gender identification, we hope you have more answers, support and help from the medical community than we did.

Blanket Dismissal of Assisted Autistic Communication Unwarranted.

UnderestimatedThis video below from about one year ago, based on a study Eye-tracking reveals agency in assisted autistic communication Vikram K Jaswal 1 , Allison Wayne 2 , Hudson Golino 2.

As JB Handley and his son Jamison's book debuts next month, many naysayers will appear, some seeming to gloat over the impossibility of success for our pre/non-low verbal children, whether tots, teens or over 21. If that sounds jaded, I suppose it is. We're rarely allowed to bask in success.  No other lifelong, life threatening diagnosis gets this treatment. I heard a rumor that a major national autism group is lobbying to change April from Autism Awareness month to Autism Acceptance month. Check out the book Underestimated: An Autism Miracle from Skyhorse today.


About one-third of autistic people have limited ability to use speech. Some have learned to communicate by pointing to letters of the alphabet. But this method is controversial because it requires the assistance of another person-someone who holds a letterboard in front of users and so could theoretically cue them to point to particular letters. Indeed, some scientists have dismissed the possibility that any nonspeaking autistic person who communicates with assistance could be conveying their own thoughts. In the study reported here, we used head-mounted eye-tracking to investigate communicative agency in a sample of nine nonspeaking autistic letterboard users. We measured the speed and accuracy with which they looked at and pointed to letters as they responded to novel questions. Participants pointed to about one letter per second, rarely made spelling errors, and visually fixated most letters about half a second before pointing to them. Additionally, their response times reflected planning and production processes characteristic of fluent spelling in non-autistic typists. These findings render a cueing account of participants' performance unlikely: The speed, accuracy, timing, and visual fixation patterns suggest that participants pointed to letters they selected themselves, not letters they were directed to by the assistant. The blanket dismissal of assisted autistic communication is therefore unwarranted.
