Is there truly a need for all the funding for autism or what I am seeing is the same thing that happens to schools? Is autism the new money generator, in which those who claim to study it, are really interested in finding solutions?
Autism is a cash cow to some researchers who draw huge grants and money while doing little actual work on the subject. Just as I see those that promote the idea that a good deal of children suffer from ADD, is this more of the same over diagnosing?
Every year I see one group or the other come up with worse case scenarios of why they need more money. Schools do it as well as those who promote agendas like global warming.
So how is this any different? Are children being diagnosed with autism who really do not have it and those who do, are they being taken care of properly by the government?
I look skeptically at any request for more money and ask do they really need it or is this more of a money grab meant to enrich?
I look at the example of our schools in which I hear more money has to be had. I understand that the U.S. pays more per student than any where else and yet the students fall down in learning ability.
Year after year I read that more money needs to be had for the students and what I see is more administrators and overhead with little being done for the student themselves.
Is this the same for those who claim to study autism?
