Nov 10, 2014, SILive: Students in special education now at 24 percent on Staten Island, outpacing other boroughs

Nov 9, 2014, Autism Daily Newscast: California in need of Special Education teachers

Nov 9, 2014, Williamsburg Yorktown (VA) Daily: New Horizons Breaks Ground on School for Students with Autism, Emotional Disabilities


The number of special-needs students in Staten Island schools is increasing at an unprecedented rate, outpacing Department of Education programs and resources in the district. ...

Special education advocates here said the figures come as no surprise. They attribute the steady rise to several factors, in particular the increase in the number of children diagnosed with autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Nationwide, one in 110 children have autism, according to Centers for Disease Control estimates. The city Health Department does not track the amount of people living with autism spectrum disorders in New York City, but based on the amount of births each year in the borough and the CDC figure, they estimate that as many as 1,100 people on Staten Island from birth to age 21 have an autism spectrum disorder.

Castro Valley Unified is short on Special Education teachers, leaving some students on the spectrum with substitute teachers still in training. The growing demand for more special education teachers is due to not only having better tools to diagnose autism, but a rise in autism over all. ...

San Lorenzo Unified Supernatant Fred Brill added that finding special ed teachers that focus on autism is even harder.

Williamsburg Yorktown (VA) Daily:

The new center will provide services for up to 200 students from Peninsula schools who are enrolled in the New Horizons Center for Autism high school program and the Newport Academy program, which serves K-12 students with emotional disabilities.

The 50,000-square-foot building will house 29 classrooms, a gymnasium, cafeteria, media center, vocational labs and therapy rooms for the students enrolled in the program, which has expanded from about 100 students in 1993 to more than 250 at times. Students currently receive instruction in mobile trailers used as classrooms.

This is the real world and it's scary.

The medical community continues to blindly mass vaccinate and cripple children. (Add that to everything else: medicine, food and the environment is doing.) Our kids are sick and getting sicker.  No one even notices.  Autism isn't on anyone's radar.  No matter how bad the numbers, it's never a crisis.

I was stunned by the SI story.  (And the story is two rate changes behind the actual autism rate.) 

New York--California--Virginia...these stories are the proof of horrific demographic changes happening in America, yet none of them is a call for answers and change.  No one is ever alarmed.  It's insane.

It appears our public school systems are coming to realize they are completely unprepared adapting to the "new normal" of childhood health in our great nation.

The "old normal" of having children absent from school for a couple of days at a time due to "chickenpox, measles, mumps, etc." have been replaced the by the "new normal" children with chronic autoimmune disorders .. juvenile type 1 diabetes, peanut allergies and asthma .. to name just three of many more. I suspect something is WRONG when the need for epi-pens far outweighs the need for pencils in schools today.

That 1 in 68 children are being diagnosed autistic represents a tsunami of special needs children our public schools will have to deal with for decades to come .. yet .. as Anne constantly reminds us .. no one seems unduly worried about it.



Oh,and if we want to know what happens to the rest of the populace that does not have autism and waiting around for their chronic disease well and we were the first in this country to have pill mills - and a drug problem that has been horrific --- "Little Columbia" Yeap has affected everyone in this area, even the most moral, God fearing, community minded, best of families.

It will be coming soon to the rest of this country -- well it probably is already here.


Well one thing about it -- soon the rest of the country won't be drawing Political cartoons using the sterotypes of Hillbillies - from the movie "Deliverance" and being all smug about it - cause they have joined us as being over vaccinated.
