The services at BETC are FREE, and "tuition assistance" is not offered by them to anyone. They do have free computer classes, though.

So, you AND you girlfriend are unemployed and you thought that you would do BETC a favor by using their FREE job-seeking services? Now, because they wouldn't give you the moon, it is their fault that you are still unemployed?
What's that smell?
Oh, it's just you sense of entitlement. Peee-UUuu!

Autism is caused by chemicals in baby formula and baby food. it's the damned Chink Chinese manufacturers. They are trying to conquer us by weakening us mentally.

Autism is a condition that a child is born with. In some cases it can happen after birth, Baby food is made over here, the kind I get anyway, but that does make sense, even though its not true!

The only people who seem to be benefitting from these handouts are people who don't deserve them.
Once again you people around here will do anything to extract information that isn't needed just to get employment and the funny thing is how they just made these changes recently. No need for the rest of my family to worry seeing that they were able to keep their employment status the same.
What I don't understand is how my sister who only has a fourth grade education can somehow dodge this when she just recently was applying for employment. If I have to be screened for a national background check then it better be that way for her as well.
The big cover-up around here and the determination to get information without having to go through the legal channels is amazing but yet you still have major drug king pins who will never see the inside of a prison wall.
Who exactly is the state of NY really trying to protect.
No wonder why you men wait until your retired to pull this crap. Your safe from having to do any irreparable harm to your own reputations.

All I can say is that you people are no good around here. I feel sorry for Western NY and anyone trying to start or build a life here. You've got more bad eggs in this state alone especially people who are driven to destroy other peoples lives just so they can pursuit a life of greed and power.
It's obvious I'm not going to find work here and that when a call does come in for an interview it's only to extract very personnal and private information from different government enitities.
I guess when your ex boyfriend was caught up in drug ring everybody wants a piece of the action.

To get back to the subject of this thread.
They have come out and said that the rate of children that have Autism has gone from 1 in 88 back in 2007 to 1 in 50 today.[ back in 1997 it was 1 in 22,000]
Isn't it time the Gov. got serious and started doing some real studies on this?
Do we have to wait till it becomes 1 out of every 2 children get Autism?
Just something to think about.
Have a nice day

YOU have NO idea what you are talking about.
Have YOU taken your child to the DR.s [when he was about 18 - 22- mo. old ] walked in there and he is laughing walking fine, has just been out in the pool playing with the other kids, then he gets his " well baby shots" and with-in hours he comes down with a temp of 104 degrees.
[ Now as I said he was just outside running around playing and talking and having fun with all the other kids that lived around us and NOW with - in hours he has a 104 temp and in days he has regressed back into himself, not responding when you call his name, it was like he went deaf over night, then he sits there and rocks back and forth,[ and he was the ONLY child that got sick]
DO you have an autistic child?
IF not then I am sure you have never gone through this, watching your child go from a happy healthy child , running around playing with the other kids, to a child with a 104 temp and becoming non responsive.
The DSM 4 did open up a lot of parameters and on that I agree but MY son was under the DSM3 and back then MOST DRs didn't even know what Autism was.
Back then the rate of autism in children was 1 in 22,000.
It is NOW 1 in 50.
As I asked when are we going to do something about this, when it gets to be where 1 in every 2 children get it?

No pops. I have never had a defective kid like you made. My kids tolerated the simple injection of the non pathogenic organisms. Your son was and still is a weak hot mess. Take responsibility for your failure as a father. Now run along you drunk old coot. You are one aneurysm away from being institutionalized like your vegetable son.
you are a wortheless, pathetic excuse for a human being. I hope tragedy strikes you, and you have to live with your burden for the rest of your life!

Autism is a very complex disorder that not even scientists fully understand! They are trying to link autism to the age of a man and the weight of a woman at the time of conception. I fully understand that autism is a real disorder that needs to be noticed, but I have said before I think that a lot of the diagnoses are more superficial than anything with some of the signs. But I have my own theory to the situation that seems more logical than men over 50 are at more risk for having a child with autism. Now statistics show that most babies being bornn today are being born to parents between the ages of 18 and 30! Most women between those ages take birth control, now most women who get pregnant don't realize they are until they are about 2 months in. If they were taking birth control got pregnant when they missed a dose or when they were taking a Medication that counter acted the effects and didn't realize it, well most likely they were still following through with the contraceptive until they found out they were pregnant. Now ij think that the hormonal alteration effects the developing organs in the first trimester. During the first few months of prgnancy is when the childs vital organs develope, doesn't it make sense in some way birth control has an impact on the developing brain causing these disorders and abnormalities? That seems more logical to me than the bologna these scientists are coming up with!

Country Girl as much as I agree with you that "voice of genius" is a pethetic excuse for a human I will not lower myself to his level of calling people names.
He is a person that probably has never even read one article , let alone a book on the subject, Yet he feels that he can come on here and call people names and tell them all about the subject.
I on the other hand have not only read thousands of articles on the subject but I have also read many books on the subject too.
I have also had firsthand experience with having a son that has autism.[ he has said he has not, so you can see that HE has way more firsthand experience on the subject than I will ever have,]
I have been reading articles and books on this subject for over 32 years now and I am sure I know a bit more about the subject than voice of "genius" will ever know about it.

True, but it angers me when I see people attacking other people for conditions they were born with, that they could not help, then attacking the parent of that person as if they had a choice in the matter.

Well after reading a lot about the subject and having a son with autism I can say that when they brought out the DSM 4 they did open Autism disorders up and let in a lot of kids that had ADD and things along this line that do not belong under autism.
When they told us our son had autism it was under the DSM 3 NOT the 4 and they are going back to many on the things the DSM 3 had in the DSM5 and getting rid of some of the kids that have ADD and not autism.
Now as for age and being on the pill.
I don't know about that.
I know I was 29, 5'8" tall and about 125lbs.
My wife was 26 5'7" and 125lbs and we planned to have another child and she was off the pill for over a year.
My son as I have said before was as normal as any child I have ever known, UNTIL he had his "well baby shot" [ he was about 20 mo. old]
He was outside playing with the other kids, laughing and yelling , talking, playing just like all the rest of the kids, then we took him to the DRs at about 230 in the afternoon got his shot and by 6 that night he had a 104 temp and none of the other kids were sick or got sick , ONLY him, and with-in a couple of days you could watch him regress back into himself and he stopped talking and started to sit there and rock , he would not answer when he was called [ we thought he was going deaf but that wasn't it] then we took him to many DRs and Childrens HOSP. where they had a group of DRs look at him and it was an intern that spoke up and said he had just been reading about Autism and he thought this looked like autism that is when the other DRs looked into it.
Back 30 plus years ago Autism wasn't an everyday thing, it was 1 in 22,000 kids had it, now it is 1 in 50.
And IF you look into it a lot of the symptoms of Autism are the same as Mercury poisoning.

Have a nice day

Could be that too, I never thought about that, did your son by any chance have a thrmometer that he had access too? Those old ones have the mercury in it! Its also found in fish, but that wouldn't do that to him that quickly!
