Down here it is called “Crazy checks”. Lots of people have their kids disrupt the school classes so they can claim more government money.
Would you care to tell me how a parent makes a 2 year old child act "crazy" so they can get a DX of autism. My grandson is now 2.5 years old. He may never learn to talk, may never be potty trained, may never overcome the sensory issues that will not allow him to enter a store, may never make a friend because he may never learn social skills. Why the hell would my son and DIL want that for their only child? Why would they want to worry about what is going to happen to their son when they are gone and won't be there to care for him. Why would they want to have to think about group homes. Oh, and by the way, they don't get a "crazy check" for their son.
