Ignoring The Increasing Complexity of Need in Schools

Abadnonned schoolBy Anne Dachel - visit Anne's site Loss of Brain Trust

How can they ignore “increasing complexity of need”? 

Looking at the stories I’ve posted from the last week I’m stuck by the common denominator all the officials and experts continue to ignore.

How is it possible that story after story reveals the fact that there are more disable children and that the disabilities are more severe?

In his interview of top CDC autism researcher, Dr. Walter Zahorodny, in the film, Autism: The Missing Piece, Michael Smith asked him about the increases in autism.  

Here was what Zahorodny had to say:

I’m always struck by the fact that people think the prevalence is increasing because we’re just getting better at identifying subtly affected children.

That’s definitely not the case.

Autism is going up and has increased significantly across every group that we look at: boys and girls, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, all up significantly. Children from rich communities and poor towns, up significantly.

Interestingly enough, we’ve seen the widest or the broadest increase among the children who have the highest level of impairment of autism, not the subtle, mild levels of impairment.

So I do consider escalating autism prevalence to be a public health crisis.

The cliché now to me, epidemic is a cliché. People talk about it in many different ways. The public’s not sensitive to that term anymore.

If there’s a stronger term, I’d be in favor of using it.

But when we saw autism prevalence go from one to two percent, nobody objected or seemed concerned, and now we’ve gone from two percent to three percent, and I also see no significant concern or urgency.

On the other hand, we’re seen autism escalating very progressively in the last 10 and 15 years, and I’m a little bit concerned why nobody really sees this tsunami right there in front of us.

We saw a very significant rise in prevalence between the 2012 and 2014 cycle. It was over 25 percent in a 2 year period. That’s very significant.

Anyone skeptical about Zahorodny’s claims just needs to look at the thousands and thousands of stories on Loss of Brain Trust. They’re the proof. They’re all about increases, more severely affected kids and more waiting lists.

So where is anyone sounding an alarm? Why doesn’t anyone seem worried that the increases will never stop until a typically healthy child is the exception? Who will be held responsible for ignoring what we see happening everywhere?

Here are a number of the statements in stories I found this past week. No one takes a second look. It’s routine now.

Edina, MN: The Edina School Board passed a resolution last month urging the federal government to fully fund special education programming. ...

The number of children being served across the country through IDEA has continued to increase, leading to districts needing to adjust their general education budgets to accommodate that need, the board resolution states. Districts must meet state and federal mandates on providing those special education services….

In Edina Public Schools, the number of students seeking special education care has increased by 14% in the past three years, Jorgensen said.

Wales: Louie Lee has been waiting years for a diagnosis of his special educational needs and behavioural issues and his mum Michelle Cassemis feels he has been "let down by the system".

No school can be found for Louie, who can only count up to 20, until his diagnosis so, since July last year, he's been at home.

England: It said only 54% of pupils with Education Health and Care Plans (EHCPs) were getting their statutory annual review, and claimed that hundreds of SEND youngsters were being left without suitable full-time education.

Cornwall: Educational provision for children with special needs in Cornwall is “broken” with some children having to travel as far as Scotland to access provision whilst parents say they are struggling to get the support they need for their children….

She highlighted a new SEMH (social, emotional and mental health) school planned for Bodmin, which she welcomes, but said it would not meet the demand. ...

In terms of EHCPs the data shows that there were 3,324 children in Cornwall with EHCPs in December 2020 and that a year later that had increased to 3,568 – a rise of 7.3%.

Yorkshire: While the number of children with education health and care plans in the county is set to rise by 24 per cent to 4,225 over the next five years, last week it emerged SEN children are travelling to North Yorkshire from as far as Kent to receive a suitable education for their specific needs.

The number of children and young people identified as having SEN in North Yorkshire has increased sharply since the introduction of reforms in 2014 through the Children and Families Act, partly due to changes in awareness, assessment and diagnostic criteria, and is predicted to continue to do so….

However, headteachers who have seen a rise in number of children with SEN, especially in the early years, have questioned if the additional funding will be sufficient to cope with the rise in demand for SEN classroom places. …

England: Schools say they do not receive enough funding to support pupils, while parents complain of having to jump through hoops and endure long delays to get the diagnoses and EHCPs which are necessary to get their children’s needs met.

A survey by the National Autistic Society (NAS) last summer found that 26 per cent of parents waited over three years to receive support for their child, while 74 per cent said their child’s school place did not fully meet their needs – a figure which has almost doubled since 2017. …

A spokesperson for the DfE told i that local councils were “responsible for school places for children in their area”, with the Government “increasing high needs funding by £1bn [$1.3B] this year”.

Ireland: …an Inclusion Ireland report published in March found more than 50 per cent of families of children with a disability were not in receipt of any service, 85 per cent said they had been waiting over a year for services and almost 20 per cent of the 1,013 families surveyed criticised the quality of services, citing high staff turnover and excessive caseloads as problems.

The report found some families had waited as long as nine years for services with 5 per cent reporting a wait of over six years, 16 per cent waiting four-six years and 27 per cent waiting two-four years. When asked about the type of services their children needed, 88 per cent said occupational therapy, 86 per cent said speech and language therapy, 62 per cent psychology and 55 per cent physiotherapy. ...

The families fighting for services for children with disabilities: ‘It’s a soulless system’

England: Tilbury Douglas has completed the construction of Prospect House, a Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) school in Blackley, Manchester.

The new school, commissioned by the Department for Education, provides places for 100 pupils, aged from three to 11, of which 10 will be early-years places. The pupils attending have a wide range of special educational needs, including severe learning difficulties (SLD), profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) and autism.

Finally, one story especially needs attention, which it sadly will never get.

From Lincolnshire was a report https://www.stamfordmercury.co.uk/news/school-to-benefit-from-6-5m-expansion-9252489/about an $8M extension to a special school, which is all part of a $106M “investment into improving special schools.”

The council’s strategy seeks to create an extra 500 spaces across the county as existing SEND schools are suffering from increased demand.

More concerning were the national figures for England.

Government figures show that, in the 2020/21 academic year, over a million children across England required additional help with their learning and education, which has been steadily increasing since 2015.

In many parts of the country, the funding available is not adequate to keep up with the increasing numbers of children who need extra support. As a result, there is a growing financial black hole at the centre of the SEND system….

The data also reveals that the special needs deficit across England has reached at least £1.3bn [$1.6B]— an increase of around £450m [$555M] since last year.

One single sentence demands immediate attention:

Councils blame rising demand and increasing complexity of need, issues exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic and a shortage of local government-funded SEND provision for the deficit.

News reports harp about rising demand as if it’s no big deal. It’s the result of better recognition etc.  It’s the second part that should scare us all: …rising demand and increasing complexity of need.

Kids are more disabled. Their disabilities require greater accommodation. We could not have missed them in the past.

I’ve seen it over and over in stories. The ultimate child abuse is the fact that no one in authority pays any attention. Why are children so disabled and dysfunctional?

"Purely blaming vaccines for autism will not solve any thing."

Completely banning them will finally produce the "vaxxed vs unvaxxed" data we have been denied. We would also see if vaccines ever had any long term effect on overall health. There is more than enough direct evidence of harm to justify removing most of them. Those "vaccine" experiments in the Ukraine biolabs (as testified to by Victoria Nulan) already added to the Western triggers that started the current war. Those funding the fight to keep Roe v Wade in place would lose their gravy train. Planned Parenthood would lose their biggest customer. Bill Gates et al would be defunded. The 1986 National Childhood Vaccine injury act would be null and void. Special Ed teachers would be out of work. Billions of dollars would be freed up to help the already vaccine injured. The U.S. population "brain trust" would go up. Schools would have lots of money freed up from rapidly shrinking special ed needs. Senator Pan would be thrown out of office. The CDC would be shut down. Dorit Reit, Dr. Stanley Plotkin, Dr. Orenstein, Dr. Paul Offit, etc. would lose their paycheck. We would finally arrive at Utopia!

Interestingly enough, we’ve seen the widest or the broadest increase among the children who have the highest level of impairment of autism, not the subtle, mild levels of impairment.

Simply because they cannot be denied as much as the officials would love to and less obvious cases go undiagnosed.It took us 18 months to have him dignosed officially(very quick) it took a lawyer 5seconds to verify that he was indeed autistic before signing his guardianship to us.

Cant speak cant do anything for himself aged 24years but could feed himself at just over 13months until he had his MMR.One thing thats never been said to us to our faces is better diagnosis only the Pharma keyboard warriors get away with saying that.

Here we go again the over-diagnosis of autism and other mental and developmental disabilities. This harms those with legitimate disabilities and add to an already over stretched wait list for services from state and local agencies like the California Regional Centers. It is ironic how easy the doctors will diagnose you pr your child with dubious autism or schizophrenia. A lot of former "ADHD" children I knew in school now have a supposed "autism" diagnosis.
It is sad if you are accused of making things up for money,controlled drugs, or attention when you are a young adult complaining about back pain and turn out to have life threatening cancer. I have a young female cousin that is dying of a rare cancer and she was accused of making it up the symptoms at first she is 21 and does not have a disability at least not one before her rare cancer partial paralyzed her that cancer was lymphoma starting in the spine a rare origin location of an already rare cancer.
Purely blaming vaccines for autism will not solve any thing. I agree rare vaccine reactions do cause some cases of autism but what about un-diagnosed Transverse Myelitis Chrohn's disease togather which are auto-immune or even Tuberous Sclerosis which is genetic conditions that doctors do not want to look into with medical testing like MRI or blood test because the patient does not fit the young white female profile more common in these conditions?!


The only way things will ever improve is to get rid of vaccines.
Our country is already bankrupt. Look to God for help, not the government.


I saw on the news last night a lot of people - that seemed to be over the top angry people protesting.. Seems like any time there are threats to any federal agency, or money flow danger of damming up the money suddenly there appears angry and bizarre protestors? Why is that? .

You all should see last night protestors, There was this one woman with her shorts cut up above her crack holding a doll, attached to a bunch of rags; stuffing them down her short little shorts outfit and then laying down and pretending to give birth; showing all she had, by the way! Then telling all the on lookers she was killing her baby.

Okay, Okay, Okay.

The United States adult population and not just schools and children are showing signs of mental stress. The whole country is. We have low testosterone levels, high drug use, homeless people too many to count, depression, suicides, bipolar, jails were full of them; till they over flowed and filling up the street.

This is done on purpose and top CDC autism researcher, Dr. Walter Zahorodny LOL -who served at a time when the prevalence of autism has taken a rocket to the sky on graphs and charts; is either an idiot, or knows which side his bread is buttered on?

That is the real question isn't it?
