If you have a child that has Autism, there aren't many that can fake it.. I am the co-Guardian of my grandson that is a low functioning Autistic child.. The pressure of the demands in raising the boy, eventually broke my daughters home and family apart.. However, I have no idea what NJ uses as Autistic Symptoms, and Tendencies, to have an opinions.. This horrible affliction is mindbogglingly, in it's affects on the children, and families.. I hope we can determine where it originates and can put an end to it's progression..
Not many kids can fake it but that won;t stop doctors, parents, social workers, politicians, and schools from faking a diagnosis so as to steal more money from the rest of us.
A very basic econimix maxium: If you tax something you will get less of it, if you subsidize something you will get more of it. I am not saying the level of autisim will change but the number of diagnosis will increaase.
I have worked with and counseled autistic and Asperger’s Syndrome children. It is a high masculine consciousness that does not merge with the emotional in the thalamus. This is why there are far more boys than girls with this disorder.
I’ve seen this created in children by abusive condescending parents who suppress a very young child’s emotional expression when there is no mother bonding. While this is not the norm, this does happen.
In the children that I did test extensively, I often found a trauma occurred in the mother’s life during the third month of pregnancy when the neural tube is developing.
While these children are very intelligent, they have a difficult time learning in early grades when most children learn emotionally rather than logically. Autistic children learn logically by location of stored memory rather than memory specific.
My grandson has severe autism. His mom is physically disabled. My husband and I care for our grandson nearly every evening for 2-4 hours, It is physically and emotionally exhausting but also very rewarding. He is the love of our lives.
