How to End the Autism Epidemic: Revealing the Truth About Vaccines

"In How to End the Autism Epidemic, Generation Rescue’s co-founder J.B. Handley offers a compelling, science-based explanation of what’s causing the autism epidemic, the lies that enable its perpetuation, and the steps we must take as parents and as a society in order to end it.
While many parents have heard the rhetoric that vaccines are safe and effective and that the science is settled about the relationship between vaccines and autism, few realize that in the 1960s, American children received three vaccines compared to the thirty-eight they receive today. Or that when parents are told that the odds of an adverse reaction are “one in a million,” the odds are actually one in fifty. Or that in the 1980s, the rate of autism was one in ten thousand children. Today it’s one in thirty-six.
Parents, educators, and social service professionals around the country are sounding an alarm that we are in the midst of a devastating public health crisis―one that corresponds in lockstep with an ever

All the Adams in the World: Understanding the Awe and Awful in Autism A Thirty-Year Journey

"Every story begins before the story begins, and not surprisingly, so does Sheila's. She didn't have any idea of this until Adam was six years old. That was in 1993. But the story begins twenty years earlier in 1973 when she was only seventeen years old. Long before she knew there would be a son named Adam. So begins the thirty-year adventure of the fascinating world of autism, a mysterious cognitive disorder that began when Adam was nineteen months old, years before the word autism became mainstream and acceptable. From the earliest days when she knew ""something is wrong"", to helping Adam mature into a young man who lives independently with support, All the Adams in the World tells the thirty year journey of confronting the obstacles, attitudes, and frustrations along with the love and joy that comes with acceptance.

"Why you should stay clear of Doctor Google and have trust in your parenting abilities and instincts - here’s how.

When a baby is delivered, you count the fingers and toes, you wait for the cry, and ultimately, there is a feeling of relief that everything is alright. Over the following several months, you learn so much about this small individual and, of course, much of reading about what to anticipate.

But what happens when the expectations aren’t met? When there is no trace of the first smile? Or there is no babble back to you?

Authoring Autism: On Rhetoric and Neurological Queerness

In Authoring Autism M. Remi Yergeau defines neurodivergence as an identity―neuroqueerness―rather than an impairment. Using a queer theory framework, Yergeau notes the stereotypes that deny autistic people their humanity and the chance to define themselves while also challenging cognitive studies scholarship and its reification of the neurological passivity of autistics. They also critique early intensive behavioral interventions―which have much in common with gay conversion therapy―and questions the ableist privileging of intentionality and diplomacy in rhetorical traditions. Using storying as their method, they present an alternative view of autistic rhetoricity by foregrounding the cunning rhetorical abilities of autistics and by framing autism as a narrative condition wherein autistics are the best-equipped people to define their experience. Contending that autism represents a queer way of being that simultaneously embraces and rejects the rhetorical, Yergeau shows how autistic peop
