OK lets talk about your lack of interest about what caused your chil's autism. If your child was raped or murdered would you also not want to know who did it? Did you read my link? It included this USA government quote:
"The government has never compensated, nor has it ever been ordered to compensate, any case based on a determination that autism was actually caused by vaccines. We have compensated cases in which children exibited an encephalopathy, or general brain disease. Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizures"
Has your child had seizures yet? My child's started at 17. But there you have it, the MMR is known to cause both encephalopathy and seizures as side effects. Encephalopathy according to the USA government statement above can and does include autistic behavior and autism. Case closed.

first indicator is the vaccine and its adjuvants. look up narcolepsy andAS03 adjuvant. even that is not enough for people to know the danger of vaccines.

How are things going this week? We only have 3 days of school so not much can happen for us :)
We never had government funding for anything, but our private insurance covered everything like speech and OT and medical things as well. My son does have medical issues, unrelated to autism. I haven't had to pay out of pocket for anything other than our co-pays.
Does your daughter like any special activities? Anything she particular about liking? My son has recently like skate boards, and he's not a very agile person, at all. He's not a sport type kid, either. He just doesn't have the reflexes. It's the dead of winter here and cold, but we found an indoor skate board park about 30 miles away. I was expecting some major injuries but to my surprise, the only injury he got was when a smaller boy ran into him with a scooter!

Yes we have something similar developed with my daughter's school. I also have a mental health plan but we have not really used this since we have not seen my daughter's regular GP or paediatrician now for 2 yrs. The fact is the cost is too much and government funding for autistic kids runs out when they turn 6.
The school reviews our daughter's progress with us every semester, the truth is it reminds me of a staff performance review KPI, but I guess it allows us to track her performance.

Thanks I'll look into this.

No she doesn't. BTW weare all in the same boat so try and resist the temptation to be condescending. You are welcome to your theories.

Private insurance unfortunately does not cover speech therapy or OT services in Australia. The government is rolling out a national disability insurance scheme (NDIS) to be active by 2018.

My daughter is very talented with music and math (however we do have to encourage her a bit). She also likes physical play outdoors (like your son). When she was in kinder she had a major accident hen she fell backwards and hit her head on concrete. Luckily there was no damage but we were very worried for a while.

2018 hardly helps those kids today, does it? Our insurance was very good, union-based. It covered a 35K implant my son had to have for precocious puberty (anyone can look that up, has nothing to do with vaccines, either and happens with or without having autism).

Surprisingly, my son has had few serious accidents. He's put himself in dangerous situations and it was just by the grace of someone that he wasn't seriously hurt. My son is an out door kid, just not for teams ports. He loves to swim. Best thing we ever bought was a trampoline and a huge pool. There's an out door small skate park near us, we go there a lot when the weather is nice, only I cant just drop him off and it's terribly boring for me. I have to pretend not to be there :) I can hardly wait for Spring. I think the 15 below zero temps we're getting is coming from Canada. Figures the cold chill would come from there!

LOL! we are having a spate of 30C plus days (close to 100F) so it's boiling hot. My daughter likes the park and she is getting better with bird noises but still freaks out when she hears chainsaws or woodchippers.

How old is your son? does he speak to other kids? my daughter will only talk to her aides and then she uses short sentences.

When my son was young, he was very afraid of bugs, mainly spiders and bee's. He'd mistake a fly for a bee, and run to the house and not want to go back outside. The other problem is his sense of cold and hot. In the winter he'd try and take off all his winter clothes while outside, in the summer he could never tell when he was over heating.

My son will soon be 14. At our meeting last week, he was observed with the crowd of boys, but he was just sort of 'there'. In small groups he'll talk but not in larger groups. When he was younger, if they made eye contact level, he'd never talk to a peer(s) but he did talk to adults, and only of things of his interest which at the time was trains and it was short statements. Back then however, if a teacher had blond hair, my son very much liked them. I found that interesting because I do not and never did have blond hair. This year he transitioned to secondary (his school is K -12th) this is the first year he is telling an adult when something is wrong, and he goes to the social skills teacher who he seems to trust the most. She also has blond hair.

Those things take time. My son could never do these things when he was the age of your daughter. The good thing is when a child talks to someone, chances are they will progress to speaking to others. The aides could and should help her to speak to peers, and model for her.
