Wanna See Autism's Gift?

Mia Math

By Kim Stagliano

I ran this photo of my daughter's math homework on FB last week and the comment trail kind of blew up.   Note the photo of the smiling doctor holding a syringe. Not a stethoscope.  A syringe. Frankly, I'd have laughed at a speculum, instead of the gag I felt when I saw this and realize the bitter irony.  Thought I'd share with you, AofA readers who do not spend your days in the FB vortex.  Kim

STATUS: Mia's math. Nice image for an 18 year old counting preschool math thanks to her Vaccine/mercury induced autism. Whiskey in my coffee looks good. See the evolutionary gift of autism - what a crock of elephant shit.

That image sucks a$$.

Kim Rossi Stagliano Mia Noel Stagliano was injected with hundreds of micrograms of poisonous mercury by her pediatricians and their staff. Today, OB's inject the same poisonous mercury into pregnant woman - and you will read that autism can now be seen in infancy - "thanks to medical advances."

And I worked like a DOG to study through my pregnancy. I had natural childbirth to avoid putting toxins into my body that would pass through to her. Yeah, yeah, "It's out of childhood vaccines now."

Kim Rossi Stagliano Here's the deal - the neurodiversity movement can tell America that autism is just a difference, brings gifts all they want. Our children will be the living breathing proof that for many - probably most - autism does no such thing. It's why I dont' spend a lot of energy fighting their message. I can only control what I say and let me words and writing and family be our testimony to the truth in our home. Asperger's? My kids don't have that. And my friends' whose kids do don't have a walk in the park. Not by a long stretch. So as employers bring on people with Asperger's or autism - and see the differences - and as population changes due to a large group of males not marrying and/or having kids - and as the social systems are overloaded with people who "look fine" but can not feed or house themselves - that will say more than any blog, article, class on Neurodiversity.

Do you know how many young Moms I read posts - "My baby can't eat. My baby can't breathe. My baby can't sleep." They have no idea their babies have been injured. Our food is GARBAGE, our bodies are full of chemicals, and then we inject dozens of vaccines into infants on top of it - altering the immune system. It's a recipe I never want to bake again.

 that may be one of the many causal factors in vaccine induced regressive autism, but Amount of mercury that one child receives through it's form thimersol injected into these helpless babies bodies determines the severity of the children and we see it through the grade levels of classrooms filled with varying degrees of from severe to mild forms of autism the children my sons age born in 2003 got their language completely knocked out and were hammered with metals and with those metals comprimising their poor immune system viruses shut down the speech. We try to detoxify their bodies as their guts are completely destroyed by these metals which cause severe imbalances it took my normal typical child three years to get formed stools after 1 and only one round of shots at 2 months old. My son was the unlucky one who will be affected for life. At 9 years old I finally figured the combo out and got speech. If only John there was one answer...wouldn't that be a blessing

Ella,

What a silly comment. Vaccines are a two-edged sword: they can prevent potentially fatal diseases or they can cause so excessive as reaction on the part of the immune system, or their ingredients can cause so many disabling or fatal syndromes, that death or permanent disability, often brain damage, can be the result. You have to research carefully to decide whether the vaccine or the disease would be a greater danger here and now, remembering that the more vaccines you take, the higher the risk you run of a disabling reaction. Although Heaven knows that many of the members of my family have had disabling reactions even to the very first vaccine given.

And in First World societies, there are very few VPDs that would be dangerous here and now even if no vaccines were given. Until the late '80s, the only vaccines routinely given were DPT (A Shot in the Dark), MMR, and polio. And D was gone, P had become much milder and was very rarely dangerous, M and M haven't been very dangerous in developed countries in the last century, and rubella is only dangerous to fetuses in the first months of development. I got it as a child (as well as measles and probably mumps) and have never had to give them a second thought. And in the '80s, there were no raging epidemic diseases killing anyone. Well, Hib disease had reached new heights, and that's worth a discussion elsewhere. Nearly every single baby born lived to become an adult, healthier, in fact, than our current crop of young adults, even without the plethora of vaccines routinely given now. And no one had ever heard of autism, because it only affected one in 10,000 children in 1980 in the US. Rates of allergic and autoimmune disease were a fraction of what they are now.

So sure, learn about both sides, and then make your choice. In almost every case, lifetime health is better served by not getting the vaccines. But absolutely, learn about every VPD and the chances it might affect you or your child at this time. There are no guarantees either way, but playing the odds would mean refusing all or most vaccines. And vaccines absolutely do cause autism. You think using profanity is going to change the obvious?

Cia Parker ;beautiful and kind comment.
Ria Luanne; Some autism is indeed something people are born with; fragile x syndrome, agenesis corpus callosum, misdiagnosed introverts, but some autism comes as a result of brain damage.
If you don't like this idea, you will have to stay away from scholarly and peer reviewed articles, because it comes up quite a lot.
"Developmental Aphasia and brain damage"
"Brief report; onset at age 14 of a typical autistic syndrome.A case report of a girl with herpes simplex encephalitis"
And from the article " the onset of typically autistic behavior in an 11 year old previously quite healthy boy with herpes encephalitis ( DeLong et al 1981)suggests that autism might result from brain damage acquired well into the childs school age.."
You want to start looking up encephalitis and autism.
Encepahlitis by the way is inflammation of the brain ( in other words, brain damage)
By the way, since I am guessing you may be a previous commenter who has been very focused on the idea that parents must want perfect kids; it does make me wonder if your parents were as "good" as you say they were; they seem to have left you projecting the idea that parents "must" want perfect kids a great deal for people who you describe as having been accepting.
In this family we don't need to pretend that we don't have health challenges or even injuries whether to the body or the brain; we believe that we are all valuable despite the harm that has been caused, whether by challenges gained at birth, or later by outside events.
The kids aren't "perfect", the parents aren't "perfect", but we all do our best and work to make life easier, happier and better for each one of us.
wishing you all the best, Hera

Rue Lianne,
I, like you, have Asperger's, having reacted to the DPT at 3 months of age with several days of screaming. I didn't realize it until I read about it when I started researching autism because of my vaccine-damaged autistic daughter. I realize that I, like you, have a tendency to be self-absorbed and have difficulty taking the perspective of others. I do the best I can to try to overcome this limitation, and I think, as my friends here have also said, that you would do well to try to be both more introspective and to put yourself in others' place. My daughter cannot converse, can speak very little at this time, has no friends because of this, is like a much younger child in many ways. She has IBD as a result of her vaccine injury, and is on a very taxing grain-free diet. If she does not recover significantly, she will not have a job as a psychologist, like you, or anything more than possibly a minimum-wage job. If she cannot learn to drive and get a driver's license, how will she live? Who will watch out for her when I am gone? She has no interest in reading or movies, and cannot follow stories. Her brain was damaged by vaccine encephalitis and also by the mercury in the vaccines she received. Autism has not always existed: read the book The Age of Autism for exhaustive proof of its history.
Your post was very self-centered, autistic, if you will. Those few autists who can grow up and be independent have been marginally affected by autism, and it is cruel to criticize those of us with more severely-affected children for trying to normalize them enough that they may be able to live independently, or, if not independently, at least more happily in the world. Would you rather we get up every day saying Oh, who cares that no one is trying to help him learn to speak, learn, or function in the world? He's just great the way he is! He was normal until the vaccine encephalitis or the MMR regression, but hey! that's just the way it is, he would have suddenly regressed into autism even without the shots, because that's just what the vaccine makers repeat to us ad nauseum, and, as a good capitalist consumer, I know it's my duty to believe every word that comes out of their mouths! Why would you wish to take their part?

Primum non nocere

Rue's name suggests an interest in children's fiction.

Jenny Allan

Rue Lianne states:- "Most of us are happy as we are except for the people who choose to overstimulate us, traumatize us and insult us like these comments are doing."

I wish you well with your advanced degree and future career as a psychologist, but however well qualified you think you are, you cannot be a 'spokesperson' for all autistic persons, neither should you indulge in blanket generalisations. Persons who comment on this website and other autism news articles and blogs are, like yourself, expressing personal opinions.

I am sure my autistic grandson would be happier without the terrible bowel pain and discomfort he endures every day, a condition, first flagged up by Dr Andrew Wakefield during his research at the Royal Free Hospital. My grandson was then a patient under the care of clinician colleagues Professors Walker-Smith and Murch. He was being treated for his bowel problems only;(the autism was not officially diagnosed until later, during an education department assessment-nothing to do with the Royal Free hospital staff).

Whether or not, you believe these problems were caused by the MMR vaccine, my grandson was not born with these problems but developed them later. It is now more or less tacitly acknowledged by the 'medical establishment', autistic children DO have a greater incidence of bowel disease.

John Stone

Hi Rue Lianne,

Thank you for your highly articulate letter. Unfortunately, there are very different levels (and patterns) of impairment involved in autism, and commonly other associated complex health problems. You are a bit like someone who has lost their little toe claiming to speak on behalf of the limbless.

John Stone, UK Editor.

Cynthia Parker thanks for sharing. That is so interesting. You are thinking, and working hard on all on all of this.

Rue Lianne

I'm so glad none of you are my parents.

I know this comment will never appear, because comments are moderated and Ms Stagliano will likely not allow an opposing view to be seen, especially not from a "victim" of this "brain damage."

But if you think you are loving parents to your autistic children, you are all jokes, plain and simple. Autistic people are not brain damaged, plain and simple. "Wired differently" is an oversimplification, as autism is systemic. I will not deny that autism can be a disorder. It is not something that is without unpleasant physiological and psychological co-morbidities. It is a neurological abnormality and there are significant drawbacks to being autistic, enough to classify it as a disability.

But it is not brain damage.

The differences have always been there. Autists were not poisoned as babies. Autists will not 'heal.' Most of us are happy as we are except for the people who choose to overstimulate us, traumatize us and insult us like these comments are doing.

I'm no idiot brainwashed into thinking I'm "special." I'm a psychologist pursuing an advanced degree. I'm not quite an expert, but I am miles ahead of you both from the perspective of experience (you may say that those have not 'seen it' do not know what it's like -- who knows what it is like more than someone who is actually autistic?) and knowledge of neuroscience. There is definitely something different about me, but I sure would not call it WRONG. This is who I am. And you know what I am most glad of? That I didn't have despicable parents who would not accept me as I am, would not embrace the child they had, instead of trying to reach out for a nonexistent neurotypical child who would not do things that THEY found bothersome. Face it: you cannot handle your autistic child, and that is why you have decided there is something wrong with them. When your children are my age and read what you write (because I am willing to bet they can read, whether or not you are willing to believe it) they will not feel supported. Not unless you have forced them to believe this nonsense about sickness and damage.

I think you're too self-absorbed to admit that your child is different, that your child is not neurotypical, that you will not be able to fix a natural state of being and warp it into the perfect family life you want.

Carter's Daddy

That image gave me a sharp pain in my gut. As for this Jessica Wilson, how does she know her child does not have metals or gut issues? She clearly does not want to find out. Those of us who know our kids have these maladies must seem to her that we just kind of assumed it?

Cynthia Parker

Kim,
I'm sorry for being so out of the technology loop, but I'd like to join the FB vortex, but don't know how to find it. I just found your FB page, but this wasn't on it.

Cynthia Parker

I called a special IEP meeting a month ago, I am very unhappy at the management's having put my thirteen-year old daughter in six typical classes in seventh grade, and she's expected to do typical work. There are no textbooks now, everything's on colorless work sheets, hundreds of them, or on the computer. She's normal in math, that wasn't the area of her brain damaged by the vaccines, it was the verbal and social center. But even the math is extremely convoluted with verbal images, and she's supposed to do twenty word problems almost every night, at this time involving proportions that lend themselves to being phrased algebraically, like Amy doesn't know whether she should choose a plan to download songs to her MP3 player that permits 50 songs a month or the plan that charges $1.60 per song, maximum sixty a month, and, if the total is seventy per month, what is the startup fee in addition to the average song fee? And then nineteen more. She had a fifty page science packet in her folder, she's supposed to watch videos on the ocmputer and then figure out the answers to the questions. Six pages of social studies, she's supposed to answer the questions about Solon, the birth of democracy, Sparta, and do a report on the assigned god and goddess. The autism resource specialist, Jena Randolph, insists that she tested as normal for verbal expression and comprehension, although it was all multiple choice, with no actual production of language, and that she's fully capable of doing the typical classwork. Meanwhile, her special autism teacher goes with her to some classes, paras go with her to others, and the autism teacher has the authority to raise her grades unilaterally so that she passes everything. He sent an email last week saying that all the autistic seventh graders were getting an F in science, but not to worry, he hadn't gotten around to raising the grades yet, but he would. The only problem is that she's bored and uncomprehending, and cannot produce a complex sentence or paragraph about anything. I suggested giving her a reduced, simplified amount of work, with fill in the blank questions that she could do, and learn something in the process, but they refused to do that.
I have suggested many times that the language therapy needs to be centered on teaching them English from the beginning, that the vaccine brain damage did stroke-like damage to the language center of their brains, and they didn't have the grammar structures in their brains ready to be activated by the words they heard. But again, they won't do it, preferring to say that if they just put them with peers and suggest topics to talk about, that they will normalize in speech. Seven years in school language therapy that hasn't helped her say a single thing. I think the Andy Cutler ALA therapy is helping my daughter, we've been doing it for a year now, taking mercury out of her brain bit by bit. (Our brain, I'm doing it too.) We're doing the Cambridge ESL book Contact 1 for middle schoolers now, and it's amazing her progress. I told her about saying Nice to meet you too! and asked what she should say when someone says How are you? She said How are you too? I told her that was logical, but we say How are YOU? raising our voice. And now she's doing it! At Trick or Treat last month, when people said Have fun! she actually answered by saying You too! She found my purse which I had left next to bags of aspen shavings in the garage, and I asked her to say where she had found it, in a complete sentence. And she said I found it.........in the garage! First time in her life she ever produced an answer like that! She's learned to say What is this? What are these? It's a... They're... which she didn't do correctly at first. Now we're doing Who's your favorite...? and I'm giving her CDs for Christmas of all these guys mentioned in the Contact book I'd never heard of, Sean Kingston, Alicia Keys, Miley Cyrus (heard of her, and not entirely clear on whether that's a good idea), Justin Timberlake, and by golly, we'll listen to them every day so she has an answer if someone asks her who her favorite singer is.
I think that if we keep doing the ALA every three hours for three days a week, that will permit us to get the mercury out and restructure and stock her mind with English (and Spanish, she's doing well in that too), and make new neural connections. Looking ahead, she's going to have to write a paragraph about her house using It has... and It is... I think she'll be able to put something together independently and see how we group logical, coherent ideas together. This is what every school in the country should be doing in language therapy for the autistic, but I think they don't because that would mean admitting that autism is brain damage, and the damage was caused by vaccines. But what a tragedy to just leave the kids to flouder when they could be helped!

I am angry as well KIM-- so angry... but there is a difference in anger from that of it letting it control me and ruin my family. I don't say that bc I think you are, I only say that bc most of my "christian friends" see it as anger and that I should "get over it"

I will never get over it until the last vaccine is done away with.

I am angry-- making it fuel into helping others, telling others to avoid the mistakes we can so easily get trapped in by careless irresponsible drs....

scary stuff

The following is from Diary of A Mom's blog post, "What my Daughter Is Not Doing" from Sept. 9th.
With this stick your head in the sand attitude and thousands of brainwashed parents falling for this load of crap I can see why the vaccine issue continues to be a problem. Parents are actually falling for this bullshit. If I shut my eyes I would swear I was listening to Dr. Profit trying to convince parents autism has nothing to do with anything other than genetic "wiring!" Sickening.

By Jessica Wilson (Oh and don't bother challening her because she has a lengthly comment policy which basically prohibits anyone from commenting if they don't worship her and every word she spews forth. Her arrogance is stunning):

"She does not have a disease from which her body is healing. She does not have gut problems nor an overload of heavy metal in her system. She does not have anything that time in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber is going to ‘fix.’ My daughter isn’t sick.

Her brain is wired differently than the average bear. It just is. As such, her development is not linear. It’s not simply a slower journey along a prescribed path. Instead, it’s a walk down a whole different road that’s really not a line at all, but a prism – a constellation of challenges and talents that make her who she is.

I’ll say it again. My child is not sick.

She’s different.

The word “recovery” is not remotely applicable to her progress."

ignorance is sadly alive and well

I am stunned when I read over and over again on some of these blogs of mothers of higher functioning kids ranting that their kids' brains are just wired differently and nothing else is wrong with them. I read a post recently by Diary of a Mom, one of the worst offenders of this myth IMO, rambling on about her daughter just being wired differently. What a pack of fools these people are. When will they admit their kids are sadly brain damaged? I think they are too self absored to actually admit this to themselves. What really is disturbing are all the followers who actually believe these bloggers and hold them up as some sort of God. More kids will fall due to these types of moronic parents.

Looks like the Dr. is only given 7 vaccines instead of maybe 9...

Just like the Grim Reaper! Ugh.
