Autism programs changes
A few points to ponder in relation to the hot topic of Ontario changing up the “Autism Program”
Nothing is perfect and changes should always be made when new better ways are found, but funding should not be cut at all in any way in relation to this problem. Autism cases and numerous child problems are rising, that is unmistakingly noticeable, and these members of society need help to live as well as possible.
But where is the outcry of demanding an answer to why cases are rising??. Where is the demand for research as to what is going wrong to cause so many sick children.??
We see blue ribbons and posts for acceptance and understanding and yes….that part is a given, but where is push for turning the graph line around and having more children be healthy. Perhaps Ontario and Canada should lead the way in searching for answers as incident rates are higher here for many things.
Can’t help but wonder that if any family receiving government (taxpayer) assistance for their child, should be required to partake in studies and research to try and make some correlations, some headway, some concrete solutions and answers to how and why.
No our child is not Autistic, but this is everyone’s business as children are all ours as a society, and we are all taxpayers,..and i’m pretty sure communities/provinces/countries accel when they are healthy and happy, and not burdened.
We tried our best in ways we believed to protect our child from the growing number of cases of Autism, ADHD, ADD, SIDS, IBS, Allergies..etc etc etc… and weather certain options were more expensive or more difficult or more risky, it was done, as to not knowing what the golden ticket was… and it produced glowing results in a child who’s accelling and worst affliction is an odd sneeze. So why should parents who give 110% also be on the hook tax wise for the growing number of children with problems because their parents gave 10%. This is a society problem and one that could be cured with answers, so adults giving less of an effort may have the golden ticket. So again, why do doctors and governments not put enough energy and money into finding a cure for the problem over just accepting it as the new norm and dealing with it.
