Delayed Grieving

Delayed Grieving
by Leslie McCann

I spent five years defending my daughter’s needs to
professionals, to family members, to perfect strangers
and to my own husband. It was five years of pure
hell. See, for some reason, in our society if you don’t
have some sort of professionally labeled & drug-treatable
disorder, then there is nothing wrong with you.

Parents these days have children with all kinds
of problems: hyperactivity, food sensitivities that
lead to undesirable behaviors, sensory issues that lead
to undesirable behaviors, undiagnosed autism spectrum

CDC quietly revises autism rates to 1% of US children

Given that autism is the number one pediatric health crisis in the world today one could reasonably expect that the CDC would loudly announce – as it does every new case of swine flu – any significant change in rates or cases reported.

Those that follow the CDC’s behavior know, like the SEC and the FDA, the CDC is a badly-compromised government agency and the autism pandemic is largely a product of its flawed policies and practices.

Insurance mandate - Cassandra conundrum

For two years I have hoped for my state to pass the legislation that would give my son access to the services appropriate for his needs. I have been patient as I have given information to legislators two, three and even four times. I just don't understand how I live in a state that would rather spend money (estimates are at 2 million and up) to care for a person limited by autism instead of spending a much smaller amount (100-200 thousand) on appropriate early intervention.
