People read and make any study into what they want to than to read the facts. First of all, all children with autism or “higher cognitive functioning and somewhat milder initial symptoms.” progress. Many loose their diagnosis and articles about that have been around for a long time. It just means their symptom's are not so severe that they fit the criteria of a diagnosis, on paper. It by no means determines the level of coping skills each person has learned.
Second, this study and the 2 court cases have nothing to do with one another, as some anti vaxxers have stated here. The court cases won due to encephalopathic reactions, no court yet has awarded due to autism.

This story is garbage. Just blah blah opinion from some nobody. Auism is so complex, simple explanations don't fit it. But when you hear about 300 or more gene mutations, and decades of parents saying "after a series of vaccines, our child was never the same and regressed into autism" it speaks volumes. Vaccines are at least a trigger if not the cause, and stool samples like this story are only weak attempts at misinformation. The USA has a compensation plan for numerous reasons, one is it saves vaccine makers from losing their profit to class action lawsuits. Two, its supposed to help victims of REAL VACCINE INJURY. Unfortunately, because government is 99% focused on protecting Pharma companies and 1% on helping and acknowledging vaccine injury. Government works hard to make it seem that vaccine injury is rare and mild. To do that the Vaccine injury court strictly defines what injury is, and it denies 4 out of 5 claims in its aim to misinform the public. The court is prejudicial against the term autism and lawyers have realized no award can be gained using that term. They discovered an award is easy if you play the game of using terms like encephalophy and brain damage instead. The children in some awards have or later obtain the label of autistic from doctors. So thats the bee-ess in a nutshell.

It is funny how the study pertains solely to high functioning autism being able to gain improvements in their social skills. it leaves out completely the autism itselfs. Sine high functioning are aspergers which itself is not within DSMV manual.
so this story is bogus from the start. Who supports this article media frenzy? This is like telling people it is ok, your kids will outgrow autism while many with autism in the regressive group have not being potty trained in their adolescence or they ever will be.
While there are thousands of medically sick kids, not being able to communicate, left at homes with their parents. Bravo Psychology Dept.

psychology and psychiatry have no place in this debate. Autism is an illness(s) caused by vaccination and can't be helped with labels, councelling or mind drugs.
