Is Severe Autism Measured Adequately?
Is Severe Autism Measured Adequately? New Commentary Believes there’s a Better Way to Measure How the Condition Impacts Life - see the article below from the Safeminds site.
Maybe ask AND BELIEVE the parents who have been shouting for 2 decades, instead of telling us to ACCEPT! ACCEPT! ACCEPT! And stop gaslighting our children's PLIGHT away into a supper dee duper Swiss Army knife set of self-selected differences. We acknowledge and support families and individuals any and everywhere on the spectrum. But let there be no doubt, the most affected, and certainly those who regressed following vaccine injury, have been marginalized and all but vaporized by the "approved" narrative. The puzzle piece has been cast aside for a rainbow infinity symbol - a visual slap in the face. Remember that in 2012, the DSM V removed Asperger's as a diagnosis. Many of our kids were diagnosed PDD-NOS as tots, Pervasive Developmental Disorder - Not Other Specified. Wasn't the code 299.0 - and rarely did insurance cover anything? The changes to terminology have confused everyone. We're happy to see strides to better measure - but honestly, if experts listened to the experienced voices of parents of kids across the spectrum, we might be in a much better place. Thanks to Safeminds for featuring this info.
New Commentary Believes there’s a Better Way to Measure How the Condition Impacts Life
A new commentary featured in the journal, Autism Research, calls for a more effective way of measuring severe autism that details specifically how an individual’s autism severity level impacts their life. Autism severity is currently defined and measured based exclusively on the levels of two core symptom domains: social-communication and restrictive or repetitive patterns of behaviors and interests. However, the commentary’s authors point out that people with autism are often diagnosed with other medical, developmental, and psychological co-occurring conditions. These additional challenges may include intellectual disability, limited expressive and/or receptive language, and anxiety disorders. All of which can have a significant impact on day-to-day life. The authors also indicate that core symptoms and co-occurring conditions interact across development, influencing the other’s trajectory over time. Due to these reasons, the team believes that a multidimensional, measurable definition of autism severity could be helpful.
Especially for identifying unique subgroups of individuals for clinical purposes, determining individual needs and strengths in clinical assessments, and developing intervention goals and plans that involve all the different aspects and challenges relevant to the life of a person with autism. They believe a promising avenue for measuring autism severity would be a core outcome set (COS) for autism that defines the domains of a condition most relevant to clinicians, caregivers, and individuals with autism. The authors mention that the International Consortium of Health Outcome Measurement recently developed a COS. This COS characterizes core symptoms (social communication and restrictive or repetitive behaviors), adaptive skills, family functioning, sleep, and anxiety. The set also examines other neurodevelopmental disorders and general quality of life. The authors hope that other organizations or institutions will duplicate the COS system for severe autism, enabling researchers and clinicians to comprehensively characterize the individual and select treatments and therapies that are most relevant to their basic biological needs.

The book begins with a close look at the actual human reality behind the statistics, and when you see the people who are represented by the dry term Excess Mortality, it’s difficult to accept so many unexpected sudden deaths of young athletes, known to be the healthiest among us. Similarly, when lots of healthy teenagers and young adults die in their sleep without obvious reason, collapse and die on a family outing, or fall down dead while playing sports, that all by itself raises an immediate public health concern. Or at least it used to.
Ask yourself if you recall seeing these kinds of things occurring during your own life—in junior high? In high school? In college? How many times in your life did you hear of a performer dropping dead on stage in mid-performance? Your own life experience and intuition will tell you that what you’re about to see is not normal.
Or at least it wasn’t normal before 2021.
The War on Ivermectin
By Dr. Pierre Kory
Follow Dr. Kory on Twitter here. Support is so important.
Big Pharma and health agencies cry "Don't take ivermectin!" A media storm follows. Why then, does the science say the opposite?
Ivermectin is a dirty word in the media. The drug has been derided and declared useless. Doctors have earnestly recorded pleas asking those afflicted with COVID-19 not to take the drug. But why?
The War on Ivermectin is the personal and professional narrative of Dr. Pierre Kory, the co-founder of an expert group of physicians’, and his plight to alert the world of his group's identification of ivermectin as a highly-effective, life-saving, widely available generic medicine with an obvious ability to end the global pandemic. In this book, Dr. Kory details all the personal attacks, professional setbacks, and concerted, corrupt, and highly effective actions which influenced the world’s major health agencies and medical journals to dismiss and deny it’s efficacy.
A lot of children with "PDD-NOS" / "unspecified developmental disorder" (with the exception of those who don't suffer cognitive delays/don't suffer developmental regressions/academic relapses persisting into adulthood) should really have the PDD-NOS label changed to "Childhood Onset Dementia/Alzheimers" but the Neurodiversity crowd doesn't want autistic-disorder-like/299.0 PDD-NOS to be renamed to childhood dementia. The trillions being spent on ASDs and corporate ASD therapy clinics simply cannot continue.

Very disturbing article/a man's dream about the toxic mark of the beast (me and my family all refuse it and all such MOTBs) that is morphing humanity (and its babies/children who don't perish) into something terrifying, unearthly, and new - the new Genesis 6 Nephilim/grey alien hybrid race? http://watchmanscry.com/?p=8521 (Vaccine 2.0 – Children of the Beast – Prophetic Warning)
1.0 "safer smaller decades old" vaccines have also caused seizures, G.I. problems, violent rage/property destruction/demon possession-like behaviors etc in what are called "autistic/neurodiverse" people.
Massive increase in false christs, false prophets and violence/political extremes on both sides (worse of all, angry "keyboard warriors" blaming autism/ASD victim families plights on "laziness" and "bad parenting") and so much more. USA Babylon, just like a dying old tree, will not survive the massive, blowing storm that'll soon be raging. Some other trees (BRICS nations) will survive the storm and work together in the NWO/OWG but USA Babylon/Amerika Babylon will completely fall very soon.
"I was shocked, sad, distraught and confused at the display. Why were they happy about this? It was not a good thing. The horns had changed them. They were no longer normal humans with free will. The vaccine had turned them into infernal creatures that were grotesque."

ASD traits by themselves and full-fledged severe "neurodiversity"/aluminum and intestinal permeability-induced severe "traits" are very different and drastic, but "NeuroTribes" has successfully brainwashed the masses into ignoring the ugly consequences of ASDs since 2015.
The hidden solution to defeating 15 minute "community living" cities is to have large families with as many healthy kids as possible. That's why "they" are tearing down the food supply (USA, Japan too with its culling of chickens, and the whole world) and praising and normalizing autism/severe disorders to usher in the NWO.

PANDAS/PANS and leaky gut and allergies and yeast overgrowth contributes to self-injury. If our son could eat what he wanted without it hurting him and leading to self-injury, that would be great! And NO seizures. Those put autism in the severe category. If autism was just low verbal and repetitive behaviors such as spinning things, it would not be so devastating. We don't worry about low verbal and spinning things. That's nothing compared to his other problems.

This would be a handy thing to have.
I wonder if it could measure how close a child can become to being independent?
IF close, then the tax payer money can be set up support groups, cause we all know the government is here to help.

Trump whined about "doctors" causing autism via childhood shots but later rolled out the Nephilim/Alien DNA MRNA jabs (creating black eyed babies/the fallen ones are coming), CPAC never even mentions autism (I don't think they have) or how all the "essential safe decades old" childhood vaccines have taken out and maimed millions of babies and children for decades. They're all tied up in doing "good deeds" to keep you distracted and deceived into supporting the right/left because Satan plays both Chess pawns of the game, not just one side. RD and JL (Timtruth and Health Impact News) are openly pro-vaccine including Alien hybrid-CRISPR shots/the jabs, and interesting how so many strange laws to "protect children" (but none against the lethal childhood vaccine companies/nothing to ACTUALLY protect children against being injected with "safer smaller vaccines") started in 2021 shortly AFTER operation warp speed. It'd cost your political career - even your life - to say or do anything against childhood vaccine companies, even on the "right side" too. Florida has a very big special education and mental hospital/insane asylum industry and boycotting all "safe essential" vaccines... would make those industries bankrupt. Is this what "patriotism" truly boils down to in the last days?
