  • Doctors follow a government protocol which stays that children with Autism are not to be considered for further testing. Just ask any parent of an autistic child how hard is it to obtain an MRI or an allergy test, or a stomach X-ray.

  • We will get to that right after we are done curing CANCER. Do you want us to pour 100% of the GDP into research? Don't wait around on the government. Get out and do your own fund raising like Jerry Lewis. Don't sit there with your hand out.

  • Don't wait around on the government.

    Our taxes, our money, it is not a hand out.

  • While looking for a cure the government already has an intervention:

    How is autism treated?

    There is no cure for ASD. Therapies and behavioral interventions are designed to remedy specific symptoms and can bring about substantial improvement. The ideal treatment plan coordinates therapies and interventions that meet the specific needs of individual children. Most health care professionals agree that the earlier the intervention, the better.

    Educational/behavioral interventions: Therapists use highly structured and intensive skill-oriented training sessions to help children develop social and language skills, such as Applied Behavioral Analysis. Family counseling for the parents and siblings of children with ASD often helps families cope with the particular challenges of living with a child with ASD.
