National Autism Association, Please Wake Up!!!

This is a repost. Today it applies to Wendy Fournier for not having the ability to understand the word "UNLESS".
Will someone please explain to Wendy that the words below after the word UNLESS mean that the practice of restraining autistic children will not change at all based on this bill? NAA has decided that the people at TASH are their friends. They do not realize that TASH is synonymous with Neurodiversity and their sole intent in this little propaganda war is to harm autistic children. NAA just sent out a letter asking parents to support this horrid bill and they have no clue what they are asking. They are asking for autistic children to be abused by underpaid nitwits who aren't strong enough to control them safely. Somebody please give Wendy the "slap in the head" that she needs.

Here's HR 4247 which has the deceptive title of preventing restraint.

Under Section 4 (1) and Section 5 (2) (A), this bill calls for chemical and physical restraint for children whose behavior poses danger to themselves or others. Biting, head banging, bolting, hair pulling, punching, kicking and ripping earings out of pierced ears certainly pose danger to the children and the teachers. So, this bill doesn't do anything at all to reduce restraints on autistic kids who will engage in some or all of these behaviors.

All this bill does is further Ari Ne'eman's political agenda of making it look like he's doing something useful for the autism community while he engages in anything and everything that serves the purpose of preventing anyone from curing autism.

Those of us experienced at curing autism know that all of these behaviors can be eliminated by removing the mercury from the brain that caused the brain to malfunction and produce these behaviors. Removing that mercury from the brain is the best way to eliminate the behavior and end the risk of children being harmed while in restraints. Yet, Ne'eman has this bill carefully worded so that autistic children will still be drugged, beaten in self-defense and immobilized by how ever many adults it takes to subdue them.

Any bill regarding autistic children that does not include instructions on how to cure the dangerous behaviors medically is harmful to autistic children and must be opposed. Therefore, I urge everyone to call their Congressmen(women) and tell them to vote against this sham legislation.


In this Act:

(1) CHEMICAL RESTRAINT- The term `chemical restraint' means a drug or medication used on a student to control behavior or restrict freedom of movement that is not--

(A) prescribed by a licensed physician for the standard treatment of a student's medical or psychiatric condition; and

(B) administered as prescribed by the licensed physician.

SEC 5(2) School personnel shall be prohibited from imposing physical restraint or seclusion on a student UNLESS

(A) the student's behavior poses an imminent danger of physical injury to the student, school personnel, or others;

Maybe they should change the "good ole boys" hiring system at the schools and actually hire some people who are highly educated and trained specifically to care for our children. I can't believe that any Joe off the street can be hired and be expected to mediate an episode of aggression or violence or ? of a child with severe autism. That's really how it is.

What the hell is the point of the bill anyway? What does it change that isn't already happening? Like you said, it has a title that gives a deceptive message to people that something is actually being done and it isn't.

I think each one of our kids DESERVES a trained ABA therapist if they require a 1 on 1 aide. We both agree John, that this is not a substitute for treatment, but having been trained in ABA, I can tell you that it IS the best choice when it comes to behavioral intervention when treatment is "not available".

One more time I have to say it though, my son went from violent and aggressive to being disciplined and able to participate in school ALL BY HIMSELF when we did dietary intervention and chelation. WAKE UP people!!

Then why are they creating a new bill in the first place?! It's the same bill all over again! I suppose it is to make them look good to the public eye. But for those of us who can see past the window dressing, you aren't fooling anyone!!

Please stop wasting our tax dollars by rehasing old bills, and actually do something useful for a change that will actually DO SOMETHING!! I don't care whetehr or not you look good, I care if you actually get something productive done!!

I don't like my time wasted dealing with such imbelicles who are so arrogantly ignorent that they don't realize they are re packaging an old bill instead of setting forth something that would actually, oh I don't know ADDRESS THE ISSUE AT HAND MAYBE!

Totally agree. They are doing nothing but repackaging the same old crap and the ignorant parents keep falling for it. Maybe that's why some of their kids are unfortuantely dead or being abused by the scumbags who call themselves aides and therapists.

I don't think it's possible for anyone to be this stupid. You really have to wonder about Wendy Fournier. Why she would join Neurodiversity and advocate for autistic kids to be beaten just makes no sense.

If you are reading this, why would you do that Wendy? If you call yourself a voice for autistic children then you are totally pathetic.

I have a quote for such people I have been using for yeras now. "Some people are dumb!" That pretty much sums it up! I swear, people like that are paid NOT TO THINK! And these are supposed to be the most educated among us? No wonder the rest of the world thinks we are ignorrent!
