So apparently the woman hired by NIMH to coordinate the attack on the autism epidemic, may not believe that there is an autism epidemic.
The new head of the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee(IACC)is Joyce Chung, who is the wife of Roy Grinker, who wrote a book and tours the nation, claiming there is no autism epidemic.
I feel like I am taking crazy pills.
So are the bajillions of dollars in CAA money now going to research that proves Grinker's head in the sand theory is true, rather than actually looking for the causes and cures of autism?
A year or so before I became a mom, me and 4 of my friends started a prayer group/bible study type thing. Two of the five of us now have autistic sons. Another has a daughter with severe autoimmune disorder.
When I was in Jr. High my best friends were identical twins that lived next door, two of the three of us have autistic sons. The third has a son with a severe autoimmune disorder.
I am wondering what the stats would be for my groups of girlfriends gone by if I tried to get back in touch with all of them.
But Autism Speaks and now NIMH are propping up proponents of the idea that there is no epidemic.
All I can think of is sarcastic comments to make, so I will just stop here and let Wade, the voice of reason, and JB, the voice of pissed off parents everywhere, take over.
