lots of bollocks, houray

But the medical lobby is well imbedded- in bed with politics-
scandals erupting every year, imho the med sectr is a big thing on the gdp-meter, so interventions are obligated for the sake of chemical-medical survival of the fittest corporate toxin-producers

Things like this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernard_Kouchner (check the french, there's no scandals on the english, (eg, organ-trafficing from kosovo)(unmentionned; med dumping disguised as med-aid)
whatever, this?? shows again, having done wrong s**t never holds back from the next golden position
/ was with the clintons in kosovo--ouf* all's well then 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

America has too much reliance on ABA which can often be very cruel and oppressive in itself. I think countries like Britain, Sweden and the Netherlands are ahead.

Anyone living in France who could share some tips with me/us about the process of diagnosis in France?

I'm very curious and quite in a hurry as I want this to be done as soon as possible, and what I find on the interwebs is not entirely conclusive.

What do you think of the process? I was briefly explained and found it quite robust (they not only ask you but your family members and close family/friends). It seems that it takes a lot of time too - is it still the case?

I have another option for diagnosis in Switzerland (I live nearby) but it costs much more and I would have to cross fingers they take me because I am not a swiss resident.

Any feedback appreciated.

Yes I totally believe autism is more accepted in the UK then the states. But it is a bit more accepted in liberal cities like NYC and San Francisco then small towns and southern cities like Virginia Beach VA. Where I live is very big on ABA and they really push it here even for the high functioning autistic people.

ABA is the “gold standard” treatment pretty much everywhere in America.

Rural people are sometimes more accepting of eccentricities. An an example is Donald Triplett the first person diagnosed with Autism. In his very rural community he has always been liked, accepted, accommodated, and protected. Just because liberal sophisticated people use the language of acceptance and diversity compared with dated, racist terminology the “hicks” us does not men the sophisticates ar mor accepting in attitude or action, often the opposite is the case.

The UK is a prime example of look at what I do, not what I say.
Exclusion Of Autistics From School Rising Sharply In England
GPs In England Urged To Keep Register Of Autistics
Some Autistic Youths Detained In UK In 'Horrific' Conditions
I have also posted an article discussing the triage system of diagnosing due to austerity.
