New Year, Same Problem with Overwhelming Special Education Needs

Is Quicker Better?

Sleeping-at-computer-300x199Would a quicker diagnosis have helped you?  And what do you think of virtual visits to diagnose something as serious as autism? Medicine is trending to virtual - but when you have a diagnosis that involves gross and fine motor skills, ability to listen and most of all behaviors, can the diagnosis be accurate? I appreciate wanting to cut back the incredible backlog of appointments. Last week we talked about a woman who is struggling to figure out services. Like we ALL did when our kids were first diagnosed. Early action is good. And a diagnosis is a credit card that can start services. Perhaps we should be looking at WHY we need fast appointments. From Fox Tampa:

A new company that has expanded to Florida is helping children get diagnosed with autism quicker by utilizing virtual visits.

Now available from Skyhorse Publishing:

Does age of autism care about homicide victims with autism? Why not report on a murderer named Gigi Jordan a wealthy pharmaceutical employee who committed suicide after being convicted of MURDER of her 8 year old son with autism in 2010. This news story is only a few days old. It took prosecution years to convict this wench. I am more interested in the justice served to the child than the damn mother's who committed the Pedocide and her job.

Of course a quicker diagnosis is better-so long as there are helpfuLRESOURCES and money available, Florida right now has about 40,00 children and young adults waiting for a waiver. Some waiting for over 20 years.
