Autism & Vaccines Vaccines don't cause autism. They just don't. There was once a single, solitary study that stated a link (and remember kiddies, correlation ain't causation) between the MMR vaccine and children. The sample size for the study was a measly 12 children. Andrew Wakefield, the study's author, has lost his license to practice medicine and may face criminal charges for intentionally, fradulently manipulating the data as he did. There is NO scientific evidence suggesting vaccines cause autism. Autism appears to be a neurological condition with several genetic factors. You can get a quick review of how this faulty link came to be believed in this article Love your child, whether they are neurotypical or not.
Autism (Check out my other video labeled "Autism: Christian and Makena's battle" It's this video updated and in more detail.)

The face of autism Here's the story -- well, the first five years -- in the life of Quinn: a wonderful, exuberant, mostly non-verbal boy with autism. You can see how the signs appeared over time, even before his diagnosis was made at 21 months. *** Teachers/schools/community service groups: You may use this video as part of autism awareness or positive educational training. No additional permission is required. (I can provide a higher-resolution version if needed.) * TO THE HATERS: Quinn did not watch TV for hours each day. He learned the credits mostly from the DVD boxes that he carried with him everywhere. (And if you want to leave a rude/arrogant/stupid/mean comment... well, I'd suggest you worry less about my parenting skills and more about those of your own mom and dad.) NOTE: Unfortunately, I no longer have the domain name mentioned in the video -- so I have no idea what might end up on there. Sorry. Music ("Ma Solituda") by Rob Dickinson/Catherine Wheel ()

Robert Kennedy on the Vaccine Autism Coverup Robert Kennedy talks about the cover up regarding vaccines and Autism. In June 2000, a group of top government scientists and health officials gathered for a meeting at the isolated Simpsonwood conference center in Norcross, Georgia. Convened by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the meeting was held at this Methodist retreat center, nestled in wooded farmland next to the Chattahoochee River, to ensure complete secrecy. The agency had issued no public announcement of the session -- only private invitations to fifty-two attendees. There were high-level officials from the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration, the top vaccine specialist from the World Health Organization in Geneva and representatives of every major vaccine manufacturer, including GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, Wyeth and Aventis Pasteur. All of the scientific data under discussion, CDC officials repeatedly reminded the participants, was strictly "embargoed." There would be no making photocopies of documents, no taking papers with them when they left. The federal officials and industry representatives had assembled to discuss a disturbing new study that raised alarming questions about the safety of a host of common childhood vaccines administered to infants and young children. According to a CDC epidemiologist named Tom Verstraeten, who had ***yzed the agency's massive database containing the medical records of 100000 children, a mercury-based preservative in the vaccines -- thimerosal -- appeared ...

To complete this How-To you will need: Knowledge of developmental milestones Careful attention to your baby's behavior A hearing test for your child Warning: Do not assume that if your baby exhibits behaviors associated with autism, they necessarily have the disorder. Observe them carefully and bring any concerns to a doctor. Step 1: Pay attention to babbling Pay attention to when your baby begins to babble. They should start at around five months old. Step 2: Monitor eye contact Begin monitoring eye contact at around six to nine months, when infants generally start smiling in response to their parents' grins. Babies with autism tend to avoid looking at their parents. Step 3: Try some games If your baby makes a sound, make one back and see if they reciprocate. Babies with autism usually do not take part in this verbal turn taking, nor do they participate in peek-a-boo. Step 4: Try to get their attention Note whether your baby responds to their name: They should begin to ...
