Your Child is most likely your best teacher.
When you start believing in him great changes can and will happen.
If you do the right things, Autism becomes an ability instead of a disability.
If it seems like the pressure is on you, it is!
That’s a good thing since no one in this world will ever be better with your child than YOU. They feel you and you can’t fake it. The purpose of success stories is for everyone to know it is possible and therefore you will start off by having the faith and belief. After that, everything else is secondary. Long before there was Autism therapy there were just parents believing in their kids. It worked.
Relying on the the masses or hundreds of self proclaimed experts for opinions has become dangerous and deadly.
The only experts are persons with Autism or those who are having success by doing what Autistics have been telling us for decades. The blind teach us about being blind, the great atheletes train the newcomers yet nearly everyone writing books and gaining fame in the Autism world has zero first hand knowledge. It is simple.
Would you read a book about performing surgery, walking on a high wire or flying an airplane and then attempt it? Would you observe it and then attempt it? What about experience? Obviously first hand knowledge and actual experience is the answer. Parenting has been around a LONG, LONG time and yet there are STILL no experts. New parents learn from those who they respect as good parents. I urge everyone learning Autism to likewise seek those with experience.
So let’s get real. If you’ve DONE it then know.
Those who KNOW have been telling us everything yet few listen and fewer put their advice into use. Next to the actual experiences of those who have succeeded, everything else is not only a huge waste but both dangerous and deadly. All the degrees in the world mean NOTHING without first hand experience.
Dr. Leah Phaneuf, Board Certified ABA lead a hand picked dream team in an experimental Early Intervention program. I witnessed 100 % success, (huge improvement), in every student, every type and severity of Autistic behaviors in less than a year.
The people who take the time to apply correct knowledge, experience and research DO make a difference. The cost to the parents? FREE. The admission guidelines? Parents willing to do the work. It was integrated with the Public School system in one of the top 5 states. NO ONE graduates from Med School without hands on lab work so why is Autism being given less respect? It is a medical diagnosis yet people are ‘winging it’. We will soon look back and see the malpractice and gross negligence in all of this.
Autism diets, books, myths and lies are now a BILLION dollar industry. BUT, next to the actual experiences of those with Autism or those who successfully learned and applied from those with Autism, there should be no one else you turn to. For years the speaker circuit has purposely alienated anyone diagnosed with Autism. Major Autism Organizations have refused to hire even one person in the spectrum. This tells the story. In EVERY OTHER FIELD, persons affected are always the persons who represent.
Think, think, think.
TWO is that those with Autism HAVE been telling us what to do for years but people have been too busy trying to sue, blame or find the overnight miracle pill to listen.
THIRD is that actual scientific researchers don’t usually write books. They might publish scientific findings in journals but many have their minds, laptops, notebooks, homes and offices full of stored critical information.
* **Great minds are typically too busy looking for and finding answers to take time out for book signings and Oprah. So, fortune seekers swoop in to reinterpret the findings to suit their current products. Even when they are dead wrong few argue until tears of damage has been done.
This brings us to a trend found only in America. I call it, “Celebrity Science”. If the stars are doing it then it must be right. This type of worship and approval from the public should carry a certain level of responsibility. For most celebs it does. I cannot image where funding for human causes like AIDS, Cancer or American Farmers, or awareness about Equal Rights, Religious Persecution or Global Suffering would be if not for the great work and dedication of certain Music, Hollywood, Braodway and Sports celebrities. We thank you! Then there is the flip side. One only has to read http://jennymccarthybodycount.com/Anti-Vaccine_Body_Count/Home.html to see how terrible this is. YET Jenny is still exaulted as a celebrity despite spending her 6th year at the top of the CDC’s and Board of Pediatrics greatest menace to our children and our society.
The Canadian Government has chimed in by having the Toronto Board of Health publicly call for the network to boot her off the show. The very real fear of ABC’s poor choice leading more parents to injure their children by denying life saving vaccines is very real. ABC ignored them.
Adding insult to injury and over 1,300 preventable US deaths to date are the other Hollywood ego maniacs who continue to shove her down our throats. Until she admits her son never had Autism, (he has Landau-Klefner Disorder), admits she was a part of hiding the truth to make people blame vaccines in order to sell books…she continues to destroy families, communities and lives. It is NOT acceptable for anyone to do this much damage without consequences and have the TV network ABC act ignorant. There are moral laws.
My brilliant dad, (who worked for President Kennedy and implemented computers into the government, schools and hospitals across the US), said, “small minds gossip about others, average minds discuss problems and great minds find solutions.” So here’s a solution. After my hero Julie Chen fiercly took on rascism this past summer on Big Brother, she would definitely have the private parts the others lack to call out “Jennyce the Menace” If Whoopi, Ellen and Julie fail me then I will have to go for broke…
Sharon Osborne are you out there? Maybe another mom advocating who is bravely advocating for a son with extra challenges is the answer. I would call on the men but they’re the ones who hired Jen for her 2 big silicone brains in the first place.
While most men think women only say things about other women because we are jealous of their beauty. We’re not that shallow. I want to make it clear that the only part of her life I wish I had would be the chance to reach out to so many parents. I would continue to give back every penny I could to the cause. I would not be afraid to apologize if I was wrong. I would rather be dirt poor than ever hurt a child or family. I am like most in this journey and proud of all good parents in the world. There are plenty of brilliant, beautiful women in the world who care about more than their bank accounts. I gave up my home, land and all possessions to battle Autism and I have been by my son’s side 24/7 for years. Great parents have their priorities straight.
Celebrity egos are a nightmare when they put them before the lives of their fan’s children.
Her latest move to improve her image by dating Donnie Wahlburg is only fooling Donnie. On A&E’s Wahlburger’s, the family named a hot dog, (weiner) after Jen instead of a hamburger. At least part of the family isn’t taking her seriously.
Mrs Wahlburg has done a great job raising her family and I can only hope that in her son’s desperation to have a woman, they see through the fact that Jen has proposed too fast.
She’s even wearing his glasses, (which does not make her more intelligent but was part of her professional re-imaging along with dating a Wahlburger). How will Donnie feel knowing he’s playing sloppy seconds to the forest? How will Mom, (Mrs. Wahlburg), feel to find out America knows her potential daughter in law took exctacy and bragged about sexing a tree? “She said: “I found myself holding a tree to brace myself. The texture felt so good that I decided to rub my head and boobs all over it. It was a tree I was humping!” Read more: http://www.uproxx.com/tv/2012/11/important-story-of-the-day-jenny-mccarthy-had-sex-with-a-tree-while-high-on-ecstasy/#ixzz2uHbrX2oi
Why not just call Ellen and say I want to apologize and give correct information? Ellen has proven so far to have a high value on truth and integrity.
Oprah is compromised because she helped spread the vaccine lie in the first place. I doubt she’d ever apologize. Oprah wouldn’t want to hurt her book cred. Speaking of experience, I stopped watching Oprah when she decided to be an expert on parenting. Celebrity egos are bad when they become more important than their fans lives. How many of them forget that we paid for their Hollywood lifestyle? When they say and act out to hurt us we can easily take it away.
Is it ironic that Canadian Jim Carey jumped on the anti-vaccine band wagon with his equally ignorant porn lover? It was no shock he would soon be slamming the United States fans who once supported him too. Thousands have signed petitions to have him deported after he recently spoke out against guns even though he owns one himself. No matter which side you are on, a hypocrite is a hypocrite. The point is, we need to stop seeing Hollywood as the land of scientific experts and remember while celebrities have helped many positive movements, they are famous first as ACTORS. Helping a cause is one thing but leading a cause requires a higher level of research and integrity. Admitting you are wrong requires a heart. Who wouldn’t forgive a mother who was trying to help her son? We all would. Who can forgive a mother who found out she was wrong and continued to promote danger and death to others? Donnie Wahlburg, Bravo and ABC. I do want to applaud the amazing celebrities who have sincerely begun to support Autism. Katy Perry brought tears to my eyes in her performance with Jodi DiPiazza in VH1/ Jon Stewart’s Night of Too Many Stars. Thank you Jodi, Katy and Jon!
Many are losing respect and boycotting other celebrities for their cruel ignorance. It is sad that after such a distinguished career, people like Barbara Walters are all afraid to admit they were ever wrong. I doubt Ms Walters would ask for Jen’s expert advice if it was her own family members diagnosed with Autism.
Hiring Jen McCarthy to be respected woman on The View is like pretending Dennis Rodman is our modern Henry Kissinger prestigious statesman. Enough is enough. I was waiting for our salt of the earth Whoopi to put her foot down but it didn’t happen. Are they honestly saying this was the BEST they could do? It is an insult to all women that ABC overlooked so many truly astonishing and remarkable women.
By ignoring the public outcries, The CDC, The Board of Pediatrics and above all, the parents of unvaccinated, severely compromised and DEAD children, ABC has disrespected themselves. Now we all have to turn away from our former favs to show support for the best interests of our children. Boycotting the woman who continues to do the greatest harm to the US and Canada means turning off The View. The only decent act now would be to remove the harmful books off the shelves and put the correct information out. Otherwise the former insightful program is reduced to giving out diet recipes and wolf whistling at men in Olympic suits. You’re all losing your class by association, hypocrisy and complacency ladies.
Jen is just one pathetic example of the ‘experts’ that attach a lie to expensive products and risky techniques to get rich and famous overnight. They place a higher value on themselves than the future and lives of the rest of us. The contemptuous issues of stealing dollars from trusting parents, caregivers, friends and communities, creating a generation of unvaccinated and unprotected children, creating lawsuits and demonstrations, manipulating research, lying about diagnosis and all secondary offenses to the malicious and intentional act of stealing time.
Each minute lost to all the negatives is a critical piece of precious, correct, healing intervention sacrificed. Since it can take 15 years or more to do what could have been done in just one year before the age of 5, anyone knowingly robbing one second from these kids is criminal.
How much time was spent fighting these battles while the one on one time to save the future was lost? You cannot have excuses, distractions or ulterior motives if you want to change your child’s future. They already have Autism. How sad that people put money ahead of the child. The child needed his parents by his side. Do the work first to ensure their futures THEN join the political arenas!
Time is the fragile treasure that cannot be returned or redeemed. The difference between functional and dysfunctional lives destroys families and communities and cost taxpayers millions. In short we are all paying for their campaigns. While these fakes have clogged the systems and progress with deliberate misinformation. the actual science and experience that every other serious medical diagnosis deserves has become as hidden as the needle in the haystack. Families and friends are war torn over fights about vaccines, symtoms, labels and treatments. When we are divided we feel alone and our confidence is undermined.
Parents heads are spinning in every direction and their emotions and finances exhausted. The truth has become the underdog. i.e. The GFCF diet that was deemed detrimental and had no effect on Autism by The Mayo Clinic 4 years ago. Did you read those findings? Did someone forget to tell Trader Joe? We have certainly become baaaaaaaaad sheep.
This is not some passing phase and will not improve until we literally get on the same page. State to state, rich to poor and community to schools, without the consistency and continuity correct Autism healing requires, we fail our children and ourselves. Think about this question: How many authors can you name? (lots)
Now, how many scientists, (living today and not counting ex-blonde strippers), can you name? I’ll start. 2013 Nobel Prize winners: Physics: Francois Englert, Peter W Higgs, Chemistry: Martin Karplus, Michael Levitt and Arieh Warshel
Physiology or Medicine: James E Rothman, Randy W Schekman and Thomas C Sudhof and so on. The point is, real scientists and valid, reputed researchers are too busy studying and historically not hype magnets or ego freaks. You probably never heard of any of them for that reason. Yet, they are the brilliant minds in the global community. The lesson? Equating FAME with INTELLIGENCE is NOT a good idea in most cases. As many ways as the Bible has been spun to suit ulterior motives, so have the stories about Autism.
If the truth is told, donations that only pay for fictional brochures and huge administration fees, (and never get to the kids), would slow way down. Keeping the gloom and doom outlook is part of the money making scheme. Who would donate if they found out the healing was already known, already being done and not helping the kids? The real quastion is where have all the donations gone since we have never received a penny nor has any other parent in the more than 5,000 I have heard from. Not one penny… Next we deal with the “cause of the day” media storm.
Guessing at Autism has become similar to looking at clouds and allowing everyone their own interpretation. That sounds like fun EXCEPT this is a dangerous and deadly way of addressing a serious medical diagnosis. I seriously doubt someone facing heart surgery would look to the book of the month club for help. With Autism now globally affecting less than 1 in 30, virtually every linking factor is being blamed daily.
That is precisely how books are sold and people made rich and famous. It also takes away the valuable and critical time window that should have been used to do the correct early interventions that would have made the difference. Everything here is based solely on information from those with Autism Spectrum Disorders and has been used to bring about successes with children diagnosed as moderate to severe.
I urge every reader to reach out through one central source and begin to work and learn together. I will post success stories and continue to research, work with my son, communicate with other parents and continue to keep correct information free to the readers. I beg all of you to stop seeking out magic pills, Autism ‘experts’, guinea pig trials and anything apart from one on one hard work and evidence based, experienced techniques. Please stop blaming yourselves or others. The past is the past. Our children deserve our complete attention and we all deserve a future. Believe in yourselves and your children. Remember that my son was severely Autistic and even this extreme diagnosis can turn around. Never forget that during this era of daily new techniques from people who have no real experience, Autism has both risen and intensified.
Take a moment to breathe in the first lesson. Your child is neuro-diverse and not neuro-typical. Your child can and will learn everything he needs to learn and a remarkable amount more when you find his niche’. You CAN do this better than anyone. Don’t fall apart and don’t try to fool them. If you aren’t OK then how do you expect them to believe they are? Your time is best spent with your child. You have a small, precious window where you can make a huge impact before the age of 5. DO NOT give up or expect anyone or anything to do the work for you.
I gave up a 10 acre horse farm, my personal belongings and my community to travel 3,000 miles and get to a good program. Churches will feed you and being poor will allow you to meet some of the nicest people in the world. You get out of anything what you put into it. Do not expect more than you give. If you had to cross a high wire for the first time, would you want your teacher distracted? Would you trust going across if your teacher didn’t believe you’d make it? Most importantly, do you want to learn from those who have been on the highwire or those who are guessing about it? It’s just common sense.
The information is free. Nothing is being sold and no one is making a penny. The information on every current cure of every disease or disability in the world is FREE so Autism should be no different.
The treasure hunt should be to find your child’s unique talents and abilities and not to find correct information.
