Sensory Holiday Train Provides Joy to More Children Than EVER EVER EVER
US Take Action: Autism Mom Nominated to Head the National Institutes of Health

The Dirty Thirty

30 puzzleNote: Anne has a great report. But I gotta tell you, seeing Autism Science Foundation and Alison Singer's name, dare I say it, triggered me to a time when they so actively worked against our kids. Decide for yourself.

By Anne Dachel

There was a study on autism published in JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) on October 2nd.
It was all about the discovery that over 30 percent of kids who had an autism diagnosis at age 2 or 3, were no longer considered autistic by the time they were 6.

Fox News said this:

A significant share of kids with autism tend to "outgrow" the disorder within a few years of diagnosis, a new study has found.

Researchers from Boston Children’s Hospital followed 213 children who were diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) as toddlers (between 12 and 36 months of age).

By the time they were 5 to 7 years old, nearly four out of 10 (37%) of the children no longer met the criteria for an autism diagnosis, according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

Female children were more likely to no longer meet the criteria, as were those with "higher baseline adaptive skills," according to the study findings.

This study got a lot of coverage in the mainstream news. It was reassuring that maybe autism numbers weren’t something to worry about after all.

 As I’ve said repeatedly, the media loves to downplay the severity of autism and present it as a condition that’s always been around; we just called it something else.  They’re especially good at this every April during Autism Awareness Month when we see the “nice” side of autism with children who can talk and interact.

I keep thinking about the news back in April that the Centers for Disease Control  and Prevention announced the results of their FIRST TIME EVER study on “profound autism.”

April 19, 2023, Autism Science Foundation: CDC Reports Profound Autism Statistics For The First Time

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today reported 26.7 percent of people with autism spectrum disorder have profound autism. It is the first time this statistic has been reported using CDC-collected data and reflects a growing awareness that “profound autism” is different from the broader “autism spectrum disorder.”

The report found that the percentage of 8-year-old children with profound autism among those with autism was 26.7 percent. Compared with children with non–profound autism, children with profound autism were more likely to be female, from racial and ethnic minority groups, of low socioeconomic status, born preterm or with low birth weight, have self-injurious behaviors, have seizure disorders, and have lower adaptive scores. In 2016, the prevalence of profound autism was 4.6 per 1,000 8-year-olds.

The first mention of “profound autism” in scientific literature came in 2021 in The Lancet Commission on the Future of Care and Clinical Research in Autism report. That report stated that the term “profound autism” was critical to distinguish people who have high dependency needs from the more verbally and intellectually able population of people with autism. In reviewing several international datasets of people with autism, the Lancet Commission estimated that close to 30 percent of the autism population falls into the category of profound autism.

…Children with profound autism often require round-the-clock care to assist with daily living activities and to keep them safe from self-injurious behaviors, wandering, and seizures. In her keynote address at the 2022 Autism Europe Congress, Dr. Catherine Lord, the George Tarjan Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry at the Semel Institute of Neuroscience and Human Behavior at the University of California, Los Angeles, reported results of a 30-year long longitudinal study that showed that the outcomes of people with profound autism are drastically different and far worse than the outcomes of those who are higher functioning.

My first reaction to this news: What took them so long to do this?

Autism numbers have been soaring for over 20 years. One would think they could have figured out the percent long before this.

This is the kind of research that will be quickly filed away on a shelf and forgotten. Thirty percent of people with autism being on the severe end doesn’t bode well for the future. The findings were probably worse than the CDC expected.

 “We need to know how many people have profound autism so that we can properly plan for their school and residential needs and improve the services they receive,” said Alison Singer, president of the Autism Science Foundation and co-author of the report. “Their needs are going to be very different than those of an autistic person graduating from Harvard Law School.”

Individuals with profound autism are also often excluded from research studies, in favor of higher functioning autistic individuals with higher IQ. “If our children are not included, then the research results don’t apply to them. We need research studies focused on the underlying medical causes of profound autism and interventions targeted at their specific needs, particularly their need to develop communication and language skills and reduce self-injury and aggression,” added Singer.

I was surprised to see Alison Singer calling for studies on “the underlying medical causes of profound autism.” Of course no CDC official would jump on that suggestion. Long ago health agencies relegated autism’s cause to genetics and perhaps, maybe some unknown environmental trigger which is something the mom can be blamed for.


So much for the environmental triggers for autism. It’s always going to be bad moms.

AND if the finding that 30 percent of CHILDREN with autism have “profound autism” isn’t bad enough, advocates for that group tell us that it’s really much worse:

“It is important to note that this 27% includes only a subpopulation most severely impaired by autism,” said Jill Escher, president of the National Council on Severe Autism. “Those with IQs of 50-85, who may have language but little ability to hold an age-appropriate conversation or benefit from regular education, would be excluded from this subpopulation. It is crucial to understand the “non-profound” population discussed in this study in no way means ‘high functioning’.” That said, she added, this data is an essential start for the urgent need to better characterize the needs of the severely impaired autism population to promote stronger research and policymaking.

Which 30 percent will officials concentrate on, the 30 percent who lose their label or the 30 percent with “profound autism” who will need constant and costly support and care for life?

Wuhan bioweapons cover

The Wuhan Cover-Up: And the Terrifying Bioweapons Arms Race (Children’s Health Defense) 

“Gain-of-function” experiments are often conducted to deliberately develop highly virulent, easily transmissible pathogens for the stated purpose of developing preemptive vaccines for animal viruses before they jump to humans. More insidious is the “dual use” nature of this research, specifically directed toward bioweapons development. The Wuhan Cover-Up pulls back the curtain on how the US government's increase in biosecurity spending after the 2001 terror attacks set in motion a plan to transform the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), under the direction of Dr. Anthony Fauci, into a de facto Defense Department agency.

Confused Parent: Thank you for catching this.
Of course!
I too could not put my finger on it.

The CDC don't test them that young, , and the schools don't test them till they are around 8.

As a matter of fact the only ones running around all panicking , looking for answers, are the parents; that have noticed something. Most times they turn to the ped, that caused it in the first place, and all the ped is was good for at that point is to give antibiotics for crashed immune system that the ped wrecked in the first place. Oh, more vaccines.

You are right, this study is lying in that they are saying they are testing them as wee bairns Really? I mean really? Then test them again before the schools will be testing them. Really?


Something about this "30% lose the autism diagnosis" research felt off to me as an explanation of why autism isn't really increasing, and it took until this morning for me to put my finger on it.

Here's the study:

You can see that the age of final evaluation is between 5 to 7, which is when the 30% drop is recorded. However, the CDC statistics that everyone cites showing an exponential growth of autism diagnoses is solely based on evaluation at 8 years old.

Which means that this study does nothing to explain the exponential increase in autism rates that the CDC is cataloging, because the diagnoses in the CDC data are post-30% drop, because they're done at 8 years old.

But this new study does speak to something I've noticed as a parent of a toddler: almost all of my child's male friends exhibit worrying behaviors that in older kids would be associated with some kind of diagnosis (no eye contact, spinning wheels for long periods of time, reduced excitement about reuniting with their caregivers). So, something is going on with the really young kids, but apparently not all of them who appear to have ASD will end up developing it. But, the exponential increase is still on.


"Autism" = (vaccine induced) ENCEPHALITIS

Read for yourself. All the symptoms are there.
They know how to diagnose it. They have treatments.

I saw this happen to my child after his 15 mo. jabs. Doctor said it was just a virus. No need to bring him in. The damage was done. Thankfully he survived. By the Lord's intervention, he now thrives, but has permanent damage. Wild measles encephalitis is comparatively RARE. The jab was supposed to protect from this. Thirty-six years of childhood brains damaged.

Most children we seen who had a dignosis got worse not better.A few improve and many stagnate but none has ever ever recovered.Sure they never got the figures mixed up with the common cold But its Singer were talking about,say no more.

I recommend reading the "profound autism" report for yourself.
It gives a lot of highly interesting details:

The lead author works for the CDC, who funded the study.

Programs of Public Health.

"Corresponding Author:
Michelle M. Hughes, PhD, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,
National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities,

Does the CDC consider the conclusions of this article (and their definition of "profound autism") to represent the official position of the CDC?
If not, what is?


I am the mother of an adult son with autism diagnosis and I have seen countless numbers of children that my son went to school with and had the autism diagnosis and now that they are all adults after all these years, NOT ONE OF THEM HAS LOST THE DIAGNOSTIC CRITERIA FOR AN AUTISM DIAGNOSIS! These kinds of statements ignore the seriousness of the current autism epidemic and cause a lack of interest in researchers and the CDC and NIH to continue the vital research needed to find the many environmental and disease auto and neuro immune related causes for autism and the possibility and hope for a future CURE for the millions affected by this serious condition.


Excellent reporting, Anne!

"It was all about the discovery that over 30 percent of kids who had an autism diagnosis at age 2 or 3, were no longer considered autistic by the time they were 6."

What criteria was their diagnosis based on, specifically?
What intervention did they receive during this time?
Were they considered "mild" or "severe"?
Did they attend preschool? Home school?
Did the parents consider them to be still "autistic", but greatly improved?
Is this a reflection of early intervention therapies giving a better outcome?
Were the psychologists under pressure to "improve" the diagnosis because of lack of special ed funding?

"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today reported 26.7 percent of people with autism spectrum disorder have profound autism."

What was the average age at which they were diagnosed with "profound"?
Were any "profound" diagnosis given at age 2, but changed to "no autism" or "high functioning" by age 6?

I mean magic wand

Do we even believe that 30% recovered so quickly.? Must have been a magic want that did it.


Thank you, liberal psychologist pediatrician for making the "autism" diagnostic criteria so liberal it no longer matters. just because a person's child talks a year or two late does not mean "autism" just because of some minor "developmental delay" does not mean autism. Now, autism like ADHD was a 2 decades ago is literally and excuse for laziness, racism, poor school performance, violent criminal actions!


So what numbers and not percents are we looking at that have profound autism?

And -- what number are we looking at, and not percents, of those that are not high functioning, but not profound? I bet that group middle group would surprise us all.

They even told us in one of the IACC meetings, when they decided they were going to change their little mind disorders diagnosis book that it would reduce the numbers of the largest middle group on the autism spectrum.

Singer has long sold her soul, yet there will come a time that she will claim that she was with those doing the heavy lifting all the time.

There are videos out there were some people go out and film conversations they have with the homeless. I observed that a lot of them a very broken people that I suspect belong in the middle spectrum.

Every time I see some one say, or write some opinion on the cause of the rise of mental illness (video games, phones, soft living) in this country; I want to respond that it is straight forward vaccine induced inflammation of the brain during childhood.

There was a book written long ago with a title that tells you all you need to know by Harris Coulter.

Well there is not doubt in my mind that the draft is coming back, cause they can't get the numbers up. We will find out then.

Andrew Foss

I am concerned. We have 30% considered "profound". All that is said for our 70% high functionings is wrapped in that "autistics who graduate from Harvard".

High functionings with Low IQ and violent tendencies are just as difficult as low functionings. What looks "typical" on the outside can hide a deep well of frustration underneath.

As my 17yo high functioning "ASD" son enters adulthood, it makes for a frightening future as we have no idea how he will navigate it. And no idea whether there will be help for him.
