Dachel Media Update: The Meaning of Autism "Screening"

Online newsFeb 16, 2016, CNN: Don't screen all children for autism yet, task force says

Sparking strong reaction from doctors and child development experts, an influential task force says there's "insufficient evidence" to argue definitely that the benefits of screening all young children for autism outweigh the harms.

"There's not enough evidence for us to recommend for or against screening in children for autism under 30 months," said David Grossman, vice chair of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force and a Seattle pediatrician. "Clinicians need to make a judgment on their own about whether to screen. There is no right answer on that."

The findings, which apply to children between the ages of 18 months and 30 months who haven't exhibited any signs of the disorder, were published Tuesday in JAMA. ...

"We know from a lot of research that the earlier you can intervene with any developmental problem -- including autism -- the better off the child is," said Benard Dreyer, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics and a practicing pediatrician in New York. Though much is unknown, "what we do know is that screening works. Early intervention is good."

TheAAP doesn't agree here. 

Is this for real? 

THE ONLY ANSWER OFFICIALS HAVE ABOUT AUTISM IS THAT WE NEED TO SCREEN EARLY and start intervention.  Doctors love to take credit for the horrific increases by calling them the result of THEIR "better diagnosing."  I can't wait for the next autism rate announcement.   I’m sure no one will be know if THIS increase is a real one (they never are), but no matter, no one will be worried.  More and more sick and disabled kids flooding our schools hasn't caused any real concern yet.  And now the cornerstone of autism--early diagnosing-- is being disputed. 

When will we know anything for sure?

Either they are trying to save insurance companies the cost of early speech therapy Etc now that it's mandated by pretending nothing is wrong, OR the newly recommended pregnancy vaccines are increasing autism and they are trying to hide this.

They don't want to put the members on the hook for the hassle. Time is money. Why spend time trying to diagnose something that won't increase the revenue of the pediatric practice? Let the therapists find their own customers. Tell me this is not the reality here.

"Benard Dreyer, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics and a practicing pediatrician in New York .. though much is unknown, what we do know is that screening works. Early intervention is good."

Naturally .. it all depends on what the AAP is trying to accomplish .. and .. obviously "early screening and intervention" affords the AAP the "appearance" of "doing something" .. no matter how inconsequential to identifying what is causing the catastrophic increase in autism.

Of course the AAP could easily accomplish something truly worthwhile .. by demanding that Congress immediately order INDEPENDENT research of the "vaccinated v. unvaccinated" .. if for no other reason than to "rule out" .. what the AAP characterizes as "much unknown".

Early screening and intervention as the AAP's highest priority is best described by the analogy of "putting lipstick on a pig" .. a rhetorical expression .. used to convey the message that making superficial or cosmetic changes in a futile attempt to disguise the true unsatisfactory nature of the product.

At least they are not enthusiatic like dear old Geri Dawson in 2011:

Amen! "early diagonois" has become a way of exonerated what gets injected into our infants
