In the day, we never knew of the word AUTISM! What most of these kids NEED, INCLUDING their parents, is a good swift kick in the a##! That will bring both parties around. The monies spent by school districts on this bull#hit is ridiculous

For one thing, this study isn't about the Amish. No one said the Amish are more prone to autism, but they are more prone to genetic disorders that are deadly due to their long blood line and inter-marriages. It could be they are less prone to autism due to their genetics. It's really too bad Olmsted didn't go further in his bogus reporting. It isn't about vaccines, either yet anyone can go look at their vaccine schedule.

The community here is infected with autism. Not mild forms but regressive and toddlers not talking or anything.

I believe they are forcing their vaccine policy by dissipating any concerns to autism epidemic rise.

Better diagnosis b.s is not enough. Now they have statements like it was much more than anticipated.

Today's psychologists could not identify none functioning toddlers as autistics, now all of sudden they are so smart that they can identify with a blink, hence contributing to autism increase.

My advice stay away from those damn vaccines. If you cant trust the agency who monitors it, why would you trust it's manufacturers.

I still have not yet had a diagnosis but about 20 years ago, I picked up a magazine at my sister's apartment and found an article on Autism. I read the article, put the magazine back on the table, looked at my sister and exclaimed, "I FINALLY know what is wrong with me! I am Autistic! High functioning apparantly but Autistic!" That article described me to a T. Just realizing why I was such an oddball and studying everything I have been able to study about the disorder has helped me tremendously! Still can't overcome "talking to myself" but IMO, for high functioning, atleast, diagnosis is a necessity in overcoming! My mother, out of frustration with me, used to say "I guess I should take you to the doctor and find out what is wrong with you." Unfortunately, she never did. But like you, I wish I had known many years before!

I sort of found out about myself by
accident....went in for testing and it was confirmed.
Maybe you and I should start a fan club or something.
I don't know any other people like me.

What do we know about the so-called test. There's been rumblings about tests being too inclusive. Besides, vaccines damage different people in different ways and at different levels. If the Amish are being foolish enough to vaccinate, they'll get their autistics and more. But I'm suspicious that claims the Amish are as prone to autism without being vaccinated is the typical scam used to influence public opinion, and has no proof other than "researchers say" garbage.
One of the problems in the autism community is that there are many "paid posters" who I am convinced are tools for big pharma. Their job is to hammer anyone who utters vaccination and autism in the same posting on any forum. I've seen them across the Internet!

@Friend - I think that you are one of those shills ... with a cute avatar and thousands of postings on Topix, yet no disclosure of location nor previous postings. I spend a lot of time on this paper's forum and this is the first time that I have seen a post from you!

Time to be a bit more transparent!

Of course I must be, like you're the first anti vaxxer to accuse me of that or literally attacked me. I think they teach how to do that at Wakefake cult meetings. My cute avatar (as if yours is any better) is due to Raymond always calling me a he... it's a joke haha and as for my location, ever hear of privacy? You anti vaxxers threaten people all the time. If you have never seen any comments prior from me, that's not my problem. Anyone can go and search them, just ask Brossard, Canada. He's been going back a full year however I've been making comments since when? Guess you've been spending a lot of time in the wrong place!
None of that has anything to do with the topics, all it is, is you side tracking.

I truely agree.

Vaccines have caused an autism epidemic. The number still keeps going on. But they will try to bend the truth with lies like:

Better diagnosis, change is autism label, better awareness. Honsetly they are out of excuses.

Hey,
.
I'm a LOCAL and have NO PROBLEM with people seeing my posting history!
.
Check back to my initial posting. Vaccinations were only ONE of the environmental issues that I listed. How did I come to these observations ... by literally speaking with hundreds of parents of autistic children ... and connecting the dots! My initial training was as a research scientist ... and I've learned more about neurology and epidemiology than I would have ever dreamed!
.
Referring to me using the term anti-vaxxer confirms your status as a big pharma shill ... you've magically appeared out of nowhere with 6-shooters blazing! I'd love to see your Google Alerts settings ... especially those for autism and vaccinations!
.
Go back to the rock that you crawled out from under!

You're going to embarrass yourself, PSUmba. I didn't magically appear. Search the topics sweetie. As for the rest, who cares. You are an anti vaxxer, all the signs are there in comment 29 and 33. Keep up the good work.

Back to topic. The monority were severe autism in this study, while the majority were not, never had special ed or mental health services yet they were in main stream classes. This study of course has nothing to do about vaccines.
