Survey on Pandemic's Impact on Autism Families

Autism american flagToday is inauguration day here in the USA. Some are exultant. Others despondent. Over the last four years, autism has been ignored by the White House. We had a smidgen of hope the the exiting President would take on our issues. But no. The previous eight years did us no favors. I'm not entirely sure that's a bad thing. Red or blue - no one in Washington has ever sought to really help the autism community. We aren't something enough, and I'm not sure what the something is. We mostly just try to get through each day as best we can doing as much as we can.  I don't know what the next four years will bring. This article from Disability Scoop comes as no surprise to us.

Autism Families Report Major Impacts From Pandemic

A new survey of thousands of families of those with autism across the country finds that the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted symptoms of the developmental disorder to worsen and “significant, ongoing disruptions to therapies.”

Over 3,500 parents and caregivers of individuals with autism participated in the survey conducted through SPARK, a research effort funded by the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative that’s collecting and studying genetic data from people with autism and their families. Findings were published this month in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders.

Families were asked about their level of distress, access to services and other impacts of COVID-19 in two different questionnaires — one completed between late March and early April 2020 and a follow-up round in late April 2020.

Most caregivers reported disruptions in services including special education and speech, physical, occupational and applied behavior analysis therapies.

The majority said their loved ones with autism no matter their age did not receive online or adapted services in place of most services. Among those who did, however, families indicated that there was minimal benefit.

Children with autism under age 5 were most severely impacted by the changes in services because they did not respond as well to telehealth, researchers said.

Meanwhile, 64% of caregivers said that the changes brought by the pandemic “severely or moderately impacted” their child’s autism symptoms, behaviors or other related challenges. And, three-quarters of parents said they felt extreme or moderate stress because of the disruptions to their lives.

“Overall, families with a child or dependent with ASD are experiencing major service disruptions and reporting feeling increased stress/distress due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” wrote researchers who noted that interventions need to be adapted for remote delivery and service providers should find ways to offer critical therapies in person with reduced risk.

Sorry, a bit off topic here but I just experienced the feeling of Deja vu. Remember in Dissolving Illusions, Suzanne Humphries wrote about the change in the diagnostic criteria (making cases of paralysis less likely to be diagnosed as polio) after the introduction of the polio vaccine? Could this be the same thing happening all over again?

Also, Ivermectin has just been taken off the non-approved/non-recommended list by the NIH. I imagine the positive effects of that will also be attributed to the vaccines. Australia is still holding out on allowing the Ivermectin to be used for Covid-19 (6 months jail for any doctor in Queensland, Australia who prescribes hydroxychloroquine for Covid-19). I imagine they will allow it once the vaccines are allowed to be used.

Great video of Simone Gold (Frontline Doctors) https://www.bitchute.com/video/jZfbuYyjZhGK/
There is a section where she speaks about a few vaccines other than Covid-19. I am hopeful that more people like her will keep investigating and realise the dangers of not just the Covid-19 vaccines but all vaccines.

Benedetta: Thank you. Your comments are always thoughtful and right on target. Yes, we're facing a horrifying situation. The swamp has always been in charge, even under Trump, although he was the first president to tell the truth about them. I really don't think most Americans think poorly of the middle of of the country, though. The mainstream media, like most politicians, simply knows nothing about how most Americans live their lives, and it seems to please them to disparage anyone who doesn't share their political views. It's a propaganda operation reminiscent of the Soviet press. Things will get worse now, since Biden, throughout his legislative career, has shown that his constituency is corporate, especially the banking and credit-card industries. We, the American people, are better than them, than all the politicians and so-called journalists. How I wish Dan was still with us! The only good thing about this 'Rona-vax nonsense is that they will turn out to be so dangerous that they will have to be withdrawn, but not before many will be injured and killed. Trump will get the blame, of course.

Still with Trump

The United States is basically now a Corporation with one of the biggest revenue sources being the liability free vaccine industry. Billions are printed and handed out to Pharma to create vaccine products that they are not responsible for, and that may not actually work.

Pharma can displace almost anyone in Congress by financing an opponent in a primary or an opponent from the other party depending on the State.

President Trump might be able to do more for Autism from the outside as he continues to serve the nation. I would suggest he simply take over the American news industry with his 70 plus million supporters.

"Red or blue - no one in Washington has ever sought to really help the autism community."

Hands down, no one did more than Trump. You can now clearly see the level of power and corruption he was up against. Only Trump got Del and Bobby in for a high level HHS meeting. Trump immediately dumped the former Obama HHS Secretary who was an avid supporter of forced vaccination. His replacement was one he had some leverage over, and he fired the replacement when he attempted to publicly support mandatory vaccination, against Trump's wishes. The next replacement made sure the Feds didn't mandate the vaccines. Trump knew he didn't have the power to stop the "emergency" vaccine launch, so he used Operation Warp Speed to make sure the vaccines were rushed and out before he left office. This served two purposes: to INCREASE vaccine hesitancy (successful, even Dems were saying they wouldn't take the vaccines, REMEMBER?) and to make sure he was still in office when they launched so he could slow the rollout and availability. REMEMBER: Trump never took the vaccine. Also, Trump knew that if there was a remedy available, the vaccines would not get liability coverage under the Emergency law. Trump promoted hydroxychloroquine and got FDA emergency approval for it. He also revealed that he took it. It was the Pharma enemies of Trump that shut down making it available to the public. Otherwise, they wouldn't make their trillions in profits off the liability-free vaccines. When Trump mysteriously caught Covid, he had his own doctor prescribe the monoclonal antibody treatment which quickly cured it. Again, he made a presser and announced that it worked and that he would get FDA emergency approval for it which he did. This same treatment likely saved my brother-in -law's life. Trump also Trump did all he could to work within the bounds of the office of the President. He had a hostile and controlled MSM to contend with. Much of this information has been suppressed. Haven't you noticed that these same Warp Speed vaccines that the Dems openly bad mouthed while Trump was in office, ARE NOW BEING OPENLY PUSHED WITH THREATENED FORCED VACCINATION? How does that make sense to you if they were working with Trump?

This whole environmental assault by established medical profession, by way of vaccines does not end with just autism. You can bet that right down into your soul that minimal brain injuries from the vaccines is what is driving this drug use.

My daughter is a nurse at a drug rehab for women.
Their facility holds 150 beds.
There is only 40 of them going through the program right now.

Covid 19 is interfering with treatment. They are not arresting them, putting them in jail to let them know they have hit rock bottom, and the social workers are not doing their jobs either. It is a real mess out there. My daughter says that really no one cares even though is is really bad. I mean really, really bad- it is going to hit an all time record of deaths from over dose in 2020. They are dying in record numbers by drug overdoses,

https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2020/12/cdc-drug-overdose-deaths-in-2020-on-track-to-break-record.html


Speaking of minimal brain injuries; out of the 332 million population in the United States; 52 million have some sort of mental illness, and out of that number 13 million are severe.

It looks pretty bad to me. It looks like a cleansing, and genocide, a reduction of the population, the replacement of an entire culture.

I have found talking to a lot of people through out the United States that their opinions about average people that live between the two coasts are very uncharitable, even full of hate and disdain by our own people. How did this happen? They think we are under educated. It surprises them that I have two master degrees in science related fields. Okay, I know some of you are thinking you are surprised too, I guess I come off as a nut sometimes, alright most times. That in a lot of our fellow American's eyes; we are trash, we need to be in some kind of re education programs, autism has always been here, and we are the kind that has them cause we are genetically lacking, inferior some how. How did this happen?

Looking at a half full glass:
* People actually questioned the safety of a vaccines.
*Trump also showed us if we were paying attention, that medical treatments are being denied.
* More are aware how the other side views us, and it is not pretty. They might want to reduce our population?
* More people are paying attention to directors of government agencies like Fauci that does not have our best interests at heart. Like Health, but also includes heavily taxed burdens that the environmental agencies put upon us, that is of benefit to us.

Here is the 2015 paper were Baric -Fauci's cohort for years, and two Chinese nationalist are working on a corona virus that causes inflammation in the lungs and death in older rats.

Looking on the half empty side;
*My cousin and niece took the covid 19 vaccine. Both of which has health problems that I know came from earlier vaccine injuries, but they don't seem to catch on. Both of which have children that have minimal brain injuries, mild form of autism; which are serious enough that they will never hold a job, or keep from making unwise decisions with out parental guidance- as in my cousins daughter and her drug addiction.
*The assault on our basic rights is pretty bad, and the robber barons of old are back in a new form of Big Tech.
* Vaccines are still being given, and minimal brain injuries for our new babies will continue.
*We will continue to die out here.

Unfortunately .. it does not matter who sits in the Oval Office for 4 or 8 years … our long-suffering .. long ignored .. community has been FAILED by our entire government .. from public health agencies, Congress and Senate .. Supreme Court … every institution entrusted with protecting the people have gone AWOL … not ONE has responded to our ever increasing numbers of suffering families .. NONE.

Think of it … over time .. autism has risen from 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 35 … and never once did our government even acknowledge the ongoing EPIDEMIC OF AUTISM … instead … POLITICIANS OF BOTH PARTIES HAVE DONE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO IDENTIFY THE "CAUSE" OF AUTISM .. NOTHING … EVEN AS THEY DENY DR THOMPSON'S EVIDENCE OF THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF PUBLIC HEALTH FALSIFYING RESULTS SHOWING SIGNIFICANT HIGHER RISK OF AUTISM IF GIVEN AT RECOMMENDED INTERVALS.

THE TERM 'SWAMP" DOES NOT BEGIN TO DESCRIBE WHAT OUR GOVERNMENT HAS BECOME WHERE AUTISM IS CONCERNED.

TODAY'S INNAUGURATION DOES NOT PROMISE TO USHER IN A GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE … WHERE AUTISM IS AND WILL IF PRESENT TRENDS CONTINUE BE 1 IN EVERY 2 CHILDREN BY THE YEAR 2032.
