Maybe I've missed something but i cant see this lawsuit succeeding, how can they prove the autism wasn't there at birth, when medical science don't even know what causes autism apart from genes.

Probably lawyers trying to make money encouraging the lawsuit

There`s a lot of emotional blackmail of people dictating parents how to think about their child`s autism, many of these parents particularly mothers are already vulnerable and suffering from mental health problems themselves. As long as the child is loved and taken care of properly they are free to...

Following on from previous comment it seems a feedback loop is being created ND advocates making stuff up, NTs including some scientists and medical practitioners, those who know better going along with what is said for fear of offending and a misplaced sense of the need to lie to be kind to not hur...

Multiple autisms or not even that, multiple conditions that have autism as a symptom On this I agree. At this point the diagnosis autism is a symtom - like "chest pain". A neurological and developmental disorder where some affected have an 150 IQ and win the Nobel Prize while others is in...

When they use the term profound autism they are referring to these types of people https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=j4PTf7LgsIEn I got around today to watch this. What this mother has to deal with is really difficult for her. She needs support and help. She seems to be very stressed out but her son de...

There are non-autistic people with intellectual disabilities that have a high need of support and that behave in a dangerous way to themselves and others. So why is it so hard to understand that autistic people with intellectual disabilities will have more severe problems than highly intelligent on...

Sigh... Again and again and again; what makes the autism profound? Do they actually know? Is their autism truly profound, that they are indeed trapped in an overwhelmed and unreliable body? THEY need treatments to make lives easier and accessible. Or, their autism is not truly profound; that whoeve...

There are as many different types of autism as there are autistic people. But as this is a bit too complex for people to grasp, and for the purposes of 'treatment', there's a tendency to divide us into groups. This used to be diagnoses like classic autism (which would likely cover those with moveme...

Autism is just a symptom of multiple neurological conditions many genetic others maybe other causes like inflammation. On a Venn diagram autism is the common condition ( the subjective criteria that makes up the dsm5) But in each of those circles outside they’re other conditions like epilepsy or ID ...

I’m not sure the way out of this problem for the severely autistic.

The bottom line is someone has to look after them 24/7

So who does if the parents are unable or not around?

This is why it’s immoral advocating the stopping of medical progress for those with autism that can potentially relieve symptoms and increase functioning. Sure it’s terrible being forced to lock up but the only other alternative in many cases where serious self harm and dangerous behaviour is presen...
