Autism ‘Awareness’ day will happen next Sunday the 2nd of April.

Lots of blue lights and slogans will be draped around us.
Be aware of Autism, the increase, the burden it brings.
I think awareness is important but we would like acceptance to be a part of this upcoming event also.
Autism ‘Awareness’ day has now been extended to Autism ‘Awareness’ month!
I am part of the Autistic community.
I have Autistic children and was diagnosed with Aspergers three years ago.
I campaign for the rights of Autistic people and campaign to end abusive unproven and unregulated Autism ‘treatments’
I have learned so much in the past three years.
I have discovered a wonderful community where Autistic people are celebrated for who they are, embraced and accepted.
I have learned so much from speaking to other Autistic people and I have felt understood.
I have also seen and entered a scary place where Autism is shunned and where Autistic people are viewed as less than.
We are called a burden, a tragedy, an epidemic.
This place allows Autistic people to be abused, experimented on, tortured and even murdered.
Then we have the evil quacks who operate their scams and inflict this abuse on Autistic people.
Abusive products/treatments are forced into Autistic children’s and adults bodies.
Products/treatments such as the toxic BLEACH MMS, unregulated blood product GcMAF, Chelation, Stem Cells and much more.
All NOT approved for Autism, most not regulated yet Autistic people are like lab rats for these unscrupulous quacks.
Autistic people suffer horrendous side effects from these bogus ‘treatments’
The charities that promote Autism ‘Awareness’ month do not really talk about this abuse and if it is discussed it is usually addressed by Autistic people themselves.
We do not see the big Autism charities bringing this injustice into the spotlight.
In fact we have to beg them to support us.
We are lucky if we get a few lines from the main Autism Charities but there is no appetite to tackle this abuse properly.
We have been asking Autism charities to help us get legislation to ban these unproven and unregulated Autism ‘treatments’ for three years now.
We are left fighting this issue unsupported by the very charities that claim to represent us.
Some of these charities even promote these abusive ‘treatments’
Then we have the Anti Vaccine CULT led by conspiracy theorist Andrew Wakefield.
Wakefield has been responsible for so much harm to children.
His MMR scam is contributing to the unnecessary deaths of children.
His film VAXXED is causing even further harm and his team which is fronted by Polly Tommey has no regard for the welfare of children.
VAXXED are ANTI – VACCINE, yes ALL vaccines!
It is hilarious when the VAXXED minions say that VAXXED are not anti – vaccine.
Polly tells parents that there are NO SAFE vaccines and to STAY AWAY from Pediatricians.
This advice is coming from a woman with ZERO qualifications.
Preventable diseases are returning as a direct result of this VAXXED CULT.
VAXXED also exploit Autistic people, claiming we are ‘vaccine injured’ and ‘brain damaged’
They terrify parents and get their Autistic children to sign their VAXXED bus.
Each child is given a number to mark them as being ‘vaccine injured’

It is disgusting to brand a child this way and especially when there is no truth in what VAXXED are saying to these families.
Polly Tommey recently said that she can tell if a child is not vaccinated by looking at their faces.
She can apparently detect them!
She has said that vaccinated children look ill and that their eyes look dead.
I want to share some pictures of Autistic VACCINATED children.
These beautiful photos are from my best friend and colleague Emma Dalmayne with her wonderful children, you see photos of my beautiful children also.

Our children are healthy, happy and definitely not ill.
Emma wants to say a few words about this issue.
“I’m so happy I got my kids vaccinated! Now I know they won’t catch measles, mumps, Rubella, Whooping cough and the big upcoming one…Diphtheria! The idea that vaccinated children as said by Polly Tommey look zombified, injured and lost is debunked right here”
Autistic advocates receive a lot of abuse from the Anti-Vaccine cult.
We are attacked and receive vile abuse on social media.
Recently I was a victim of their bullying.
I was called a slag, lobotomy, infected zombie, Charles Manson and more.
I am sharing some of these comments below.

I have met some amazing people that support us with our campaign work.
There are too many names to mention but you know who you are.
Special thanks to David, John, Eoin, Monique, Bobbi, Trevor, Ashley, Debbie.
I also want to thank those that support us from the skeptic and science communities.
I have formed strong friendships in the past three years and I want to celebrate them this Autism ACCEPTANCE month.
One dear friend is Alex Forshaw.

Alex is also a wonderful writer, please read her work.
This blog is dedicated to my best friend and colleague Emma.

She is my hero.
She is dedicated and passionate and has achieved so much.
She has written two books.
She has founded a wonderful organisation A.I.M
She even writes songs, listen to My Spectrum Baby.
Emma and I have witnessed such injustice together.
We will keep fighting for a better future.
Autism Acceptance will be recognised and celebrated.

HAPPY AUTISM ACCEPTANCE MONTH!

Irish Anti Vaxxers Embrace The VAXXED Cult.

2017-03-15 18.11.53-1
I have been observing the anti vaccine movement for many years now, their logic and how they operate.
They really are a selfish and unstable bunch.
We have suffered Andrew Wakefields lies for nearly twenty years now, he is still here spreading more harm than ever before.
Screenshot_2017-01-08-22-24-59-1-1
His propaganda film VAXXED is causing immense damage.
We see an increase in preventable diseases since the release of his film last year.
Then we have the VAXXED team touring the US and now they are about to take on
Ireland and the UK.
Measles outbreaks are happening all around the world and children are dying.
We are also seeing outbreaks of Mumps and other preventable diseases.
We recently heard about the seven year old girl who contracted tetanus, she was not vaccinated against it.
She is in a critical condition suffering horrendous pain, read about tetanus and what it does to the body.
This is 2017, not the eighteenth century!
Children do not need to suffer from these PREVENTABLE diseases.
If we turn back the clock we did not have outbreaks like the ones we are witnessing in the past few years.
Ireland had over 30 confirmed cases of measles last year, we did not see this happen in previous years.
Wakefield and his VAXXED team are doing this.
They are bringing these preventable diseases back and killing children in the process.
They have blood on their hands.
Their followers are blinded by pseudoscience and live in a conspiracy bubble, not able to digest facts or accurate information.
Screenshot_2017-01-08-15-18-49-1
You cannot reach these people.
Wakefield and his team prey on vulnerable parents and receive support from chiropractors, homeopaths and those in the alternative ‘therapy’ field.
Polly Tommey and her VAXXED team will arrive in Ireland at the end of April, with dates suggesting the 25th or 26th.
They plan to prey on parents and terrify them with their anti vaccine propaganda.
Screenshot_2017-01-08-15-24-06-1
They have created an email for their Irish victims (vaxxedireland2017@gmail.com)
VAXXED are asking the people of Ireland to send in their stories.
It is not just about the MMR vaccine, any vaccine will do!
VAXXED blame vaccines for all ailments now!
I am disgusted to see this cult being supported by my fellow citizens here in Ireland.
I recognise some of these supporters.
See some screenshots from the Irish VAXXED fan club below.

Then we have the Homeopath helping them, lining up her ‘patients’ below.

They have a built a shrine for Wakefield and some have even traveled overseas to meet this fraud.
Vaxxed supporters keep saying that they have a right to decide whether they should vaccinate their children or not.
What about the rights of the child?
The right to be protected from deadly diseases.
Children have rights, a right to be safe and healthy.
These anti vaxxers are playing Russian Roulette with their children’s lives, this also affects society as a whole.
Their decision to not vaccinate decreases Herd Immunity which is what is needed to help keep these dreadful diseases away.
You are committing a selfish and dangerous act by not vaccinating your child.
I want our Government to act and treat this serious issue as a matter of urgency.
We have written to the Minster for Health and other Minsters and we need people to support us.
People can find relevant information from our Facebook page.
If this matter is not tackled effectively, we will see major outbreaks, not just with Measles and Mumps but other diseases also.
The anti vaccine movement get their information from frauds, quacks and conspiracy theorists.
Many parents think they are medical experts and Dr. Google has given them this qualification.
I have read insane comments from some parents and it is really frightening to see how brainwashed they have become.
Some comments have included ‘I would rather have a dead child than an Autistic child’
‘Tetanus is not as bad as the side effects from vaccines’
VAXXED exploit Autistic people, they instill a fear and hatred of Autism.
Autistic people are pawns for their reckless campaign.
I am on the Autistic spectrum and two of my wonderful children also.
VAXXED are hurting the Autistic community.
They mock us, insult us, belittle us.
They refer to us as an epidemic, holocaust, toxic, injured.
They are coming to Ireland to spread their hate, lies and destruction.
Who will be the ones that will suffer from this cult and their dangerous campaign?
The Autistic community.
Our children, they will get sick, seriously ill.
Some will end up disabled and some will die.
Why?
Because Andrew Wakefield and his cult VAXXED will have told their parents that there are NO SAFE VACCINES!
Some gullible parents will sadly believe this and some of these unvaccinated children will contract one of these PREVENTABLE diseases.
They will then spread this PREVENTABLE disease to others.
Some children will recover, others will not.
VAXXED do not talk about the children that die from these deadly diseases.
These diseases have not disappeared!
We have a proven and effective way of preventing them.
It is called VACCINATION!
Polly Tommey does not seem to care much about safety, not only is she spreading harm with her anti vaccine nonsense but she also chooses NOT to wear a seat belt whilst being a front seat passenger in her VAXXED RV.
Even her fans are asking her to put on her seat belt, see in screenshots below.
Screenshot_2017-03-18-16-36-24-1-1
Screenshot_2017-03-18-01-15-39-1-1
Tommey is actually breaking the law  by not wearing her seat belt.
Polly Tommey could seriously injure or kill a person if an accident should occur.
Today I cried thinking about the seven year old girl who is critically ill after contracting Tetanus.
She is the same age as our precious daughter Phoebe.
This little girl who is now fighting for her life was not vaccinated, not protected from this deadly disease.
She should NOT be in this condition.
VAXXED and the anti vaccine movement are maiming and killing our children.
That is a FACT!

Autism Charity Promoting Scam

screenshot_2017-02-28-13-56-44-1

We have discovered another Autism Charity who are allowing platforms to people who offer unscientific therapies for Autism.

Please see the Anna Kennedy charity below.

http://annakennedyonline.com/

They are hosting an Autism event soon and one of their speakers is Shammi Kapoor.
Shammi is offering an unscientific brain training program called Brain Rx, it is the international program of Learning Rx.
Learning Rx is founded by Dr.Ken Gibson.
Ken Gibson was investigated by the Federal Trade Commission in the US last year and his Brain Training program was exposed as fraud.
Read official Press Release below.
“The developers and marketers of the LearningRx “brain training” programs have agreed to stop making a range of false and unsubstantiated claims and pay $200,000 under a settlement with the Federal Trade Commission.According to the FTC’s complaint, LearningRx Franchise Corp. and its CEO, Dr. Ken Gibson, deceptively claimed that their programs were clinically proven to permanently improve serious health conditions like ADHD, autism, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, strokes, and concussions and that the training substantially improved school grades and college admission test scores, career earnings, and job and athletic performance. They also allegedly claimed that LearningRx brain training is 10 times more cost-effective than tutoring.

“Companies that say they can significantly improve serious health conditions or how your brain functions in everyday situations need to back up those claims with sound science,” said Jessica Rich, Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. “In this case, the defendants couldn’t show their training provides the health or other real-world benefits they claimed.”

According to the FTC, the defendants promoted LearningRx through LearningRx.com and affiliated websites, as well as through a blog, Facebook and Twitter posts, print and radio ads, and direct mail pieces. They also allegedly used Google search ads to target consumers searching for terms such as “cure for ADD,” “autism cure,” “Asperger cure,” and “severe traumatic brain injury cure.” The defendants, based in Colorado Springs, Colorado, offered LearningRx training through more than 80 LearningRx centers that it franchised in 25 states”

 
See Shammi Kapoor below.

See Shammis website Brain Abilitiez below.

http://www.brainabilitiez.com/

I rang Brain Abilitiez and spoke to Shammis Mother.

She told me that Shammi was diagnosed Autistic age nineteen but now he would not be able to receive an Autism diagnosis because of the wonders of this Brain Training.

She claimed it gave him eye contact and helped him speak!

Miraculous claims.

I asked her about scientific research and she said she would send me information and testimonials.

She said an initial consultation would cost £90 and then training is £50 per hour.

It is very intense with many hours needed and sometimes up to six months training is required, depending on the individual.

I asked who carried out the training, she said the training is carried out by herself and her Son Shammi.

I asked had she any training in Autism, or any other significant training?

She said no, she was just a Mother.

This Brain training is a recognised scam and its founder already prosecuted and fined.

See some of Brain Abilitiez posts, claiming to be professionals below.

I immediately contacted the Anna Kennedy charity regarding my concerns and spoke directly with Anna Kennedy.

She did not seem to be concerned about this speaker and said a colleague had organised it all.

I said it is important to research all speakers, especially those that are peddling scams.

Last year the Anna Kennedy charity allowed Carol Stott to speak at their event.

Carol Stott was a colleague of the discredited Doctor Andrew Wakefield and still promotes his MMR Vaccine scam to this day.

See below.

Carol Stott speaking at the Anna Kennedy event last March 2016 above.

I also checked out the Anna Kennedy Autism charity website and was shocked to see a section titled ‘Useful Links’

Many of these links led to websites offering unscientific treatments, including Homeopathy, Reiki, Aromatherapy.

One link led to the Holistic Clinic website which has a multitude of bogus and dangerous ‘therapies’ listed.

I questioned Anna Kennedy about these links and she confirmed that they had been on her website for a long time.

Anna Kennedy has deleted these links since our phone call earlier today.

Please screenshots of these links below.

One link led to this website filled with quack therapies below.

http://www.holistic-community.co.uk/therapy-info/

Other links promoted ABA.

Anna Kennedy is also one of the founders of Baston House Autism school which formed in 2011, see their website below.

http://www.bastonhouseschool.org.uk/

screenshot_2017-02-28-13-58-12-1

Baston House used to permit Spit Hoods, two Mothers reached out to me and told me this.

Spit Hoods are basically like a dog Muzzle and sometimes used for prisoners in extreme circumstances.

Please see Baston House Spit Hood Policy below, it was abolished in 2015.

screenshot_2017-02-28-14-46-20-1

I have not received any assurance from this charity regarding this speaker at their upcoming event on the 11th of March, they could still be speaking for all I know.

I am outraged to see this charity endorsing unproven, unregulated and dangerous ‘therapies’

It is vital that all charities only endorse scientifically proven and safe therapies, and all charities should reassess who and what they are promoting.

The fact that this continues without any consequence is extremely concerning for all those who are part of the Autistic community.
