Bleh. How about we start funding autism treatments just like other medical conditions rather than lumping it in with "mental health" crap and letting insurance companies keep getting away with giving nothing??

PS. I rather doubt the vaccines caused my childrens' autism, but now that I know about thimerosol and some of the other stuff in vaccines even now, I am more cautious about vaccines. I think it's an overall plus but of course if we keep getting ONLY focus on vaccines we're going nowhere.

You were far more patient than I.

Isn't it malpractice, what the doctor is doing?

So far as I can tell, no controlled studies show it effective in treating autism.
