‘The Million Dollar Kid’

0_jLe33ZKodNIffjIdA Mum twittered last night, her autistic son, is nicked named, ‘the million dollar kid’ for the £12,500 per week; he earns for his ‘Treatment’ Unit owners.

Yes, you read correctly.

How could such a sum be justified?

Obviously, because it needn’t be.

And, where, in that sum, is the incentive for effective treatment?

Payment, of such sums makes a nonsense of cost cutting, austerity, and reduction of our deficit.

Another Mum, excitedly decorating  her autistic son’s bedroom, his care package, months in the making, having finally, allowed him home, for his 18th birthday, and Christmas, and, forever ?

Smashed to pieces, in yet another faceless meeting, when ‘they’ decided, her son, needed an adult hospital, and, not the love, and care of his family.

No doubt, the effect of this news, will justify, even more medication in his £4,500 per week, tax free, hospital placement.

Whilst, he tries to cling, to the memory of the love, peace, and security of the home life, he was ripped from.

On his refusal to be ‘assessed’, two…….. long years ago.

Autism, cannot be ‘assessed’, or ‘treated’.

It can only be lived with.

With the care, and love, only parents, can give.

Many, many, more such Mums, Dads, and, autistic adults, are out there.

Bullied, powerless, destroyed by the state, to make extortionate private profit, from public funds.

If there were a word for it, obscene.

Beyond shame.

The state have created, and, found, the perfect market, their children’s future.

There are no day schools, yet education is funded to 25.

No day centres, respite facilities.

They have been closed.

On the audacity of LA budget cuts, which allow, the same LA, or NHS, to commission £4,500/12,500 per week placements.

Venture capitalist investors, are advised, to move their money out of domiciliary care, as the future is not with the family.

The only Adult Service, is institutional state provision, whatever, laudable name it’s given.

‘Service provider centred’, ‘people centred’, but the ‘centred’, have no rights or choice.

The adult ‘learning disabled’ residential sector, has now out grown the old, and Alzheimer one.

A Care Quality Commission’s role, is now to market watch.

The Local Authorities, most likely, via secret societies, like Common Purpose UK, control the commissions.

Many providers, are subsidiaries of Companies, registered outside the UK, so there is scant financial transparency.

These faceless conglomerates, owe no duty to their vulnerable, voiceless consumers.

Only, to use them, to make as much profit as possible.

Their customers have no choice or contract.

The provision, for our most vulnerable, in need of the most ‘people centred’ care is uncompetitive, unregulated, and, in secret.

Ever greedy, accounting machinations, can close these vulnerable people’s homes, and, end their workers’ jobs, overnight.

Neither, the Local Authority Commissioners, nor the Care Quality Commission, nor NHS England, have any effective control over the services, they commission.

And, there is, a conflict of interest, between their safeguarding, and commissioning remits, as if their commissioned services, are inadequate they are liable.

That is, if there were, any effective legal accountability, or, indeed, sanction.

And sharks, can, and are, making a killing, out of our most vulnerable, as the Southern Cross Healthcare debacle, illustrated.

Yet courts, local authorities, and, health trusts, continue to cost cut and spend billions of our money, not fulfilling, their statutory duties.

And, we continue to let them.

Profitable Retardation of the Autistic ? Learning ‘Difficulty’ conflated to ‘Disability’.

Einstein

Autism, despite its  vague, non pathological definition.

And dodgy, vague criteria  diagnoses.

Is the UK’s most costly medical condition.

http://www.lse.ac.uk/newsAndMedia/news/archives/2014/06/Autism.aspx

Why ?

Because, autism can and is being made the ultimate cash cow.

Despite treatments having little effect.

Analysis finds weak evidence for most autism treatments

And outcomes for the autistic being now dire- medication damage, early death and institutionalisation for life.

The autism industry has built the most lucrative empire by autism  awareness, detection, and diagnosis.

I always worried about the more intelligent, and/or less obedient 3 year old, who did not knock on the ‘special box’ three times, when told to, to get the toy out.

Or went to find, where a toy actually was, rather than, where the other child, who had not seen it being hidden, would have, thought, it was.

Who were diagnosed autistic on such tests.

Screen-shot-2015-08-11-at-11_42_33And wondered if this really did indicate a lack of empathy?.

We all have autistic genes.

http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/308185.php

Autism is now being detected in babies,

http://www.nhs.uk/news/2013/11November/Pages/Can-autism-really-be-detected-in-babies.aspx

And, those just ‘At risk ,‘ presumably with autism in their family, are singled out.

At risk of what ?

Something with no pathology, no definition that manifests itself on a spectrum that we are all on.

The intensive hunt for the autistic mirrors that now for Alzheimers.

Our ‘autism friends’, health visitors, nursery schools, GPs, CMHS, Social Services etc.

The diagnosee is a lucrative captive customer, for the autism industry’s ever increasing cabal.

An industry which is PR controlled, with its own experts, managers, qualifications, researchers, guidelines.

That controls the research, the training, the guidelines, the tests, and, even, the definition of autism.

This cabal per se, is lucrative and, as charitable, tax free, and gains more income from students, training, government, and fundraising.

All singing from the same, unquestioned hymn sheet.

The autistic and parents have little input nor do the outcomes for the autistic.

And all are controlled by draconian  Care and Court of Protection MCA orders, that can enforce any treatment/medication/residence/education the cabal want.

Only those few protected, as part of the cabal, or  who escape diagnosis survive.

For the ‘autistic’, the discrimination starts early.

At 4/5, the autistic child is subject, to the same IQ tests, as, a‘normal’ child, for their EHC statement.

No allowance is given for their communication or  attention difference.

http://autism.about.com/od/schoolandsummer/fl/Why-IQ-Tests-May-Not-Tell-You-Much-About-Your-Child-with-Autism.htm

Which will result in their IQ scores being lower than their actual intelligence..

And, no matter how high their IQ score,  their autism difference  will mean they will have ‘learning difficulties’.

Which is then mislabelled a ‘learning disability’.

No one, distinguishes, the crucial difference.

Disability is the permanent intellectual impairment of having a lower than average intelligence and affects an individual’s capability.

Difficulty is not an intellectual impairment just an acceptance that autism results in a child learning differently.

And the need for more one to one assistance, time to process information, visual aids, and flexible steps for progression.

On this conflation and misunderstanding, inappropriate education is  put in place.

A class room assistant, may teach them, all frogs are green, but the curious intelligent autistic notices they are not.

And, some basics, irrelevant to autistic processing and cannot be learnt justify presumed retardation.

And, as these basics cannot be acquired because of how autistics learn they are not allowed to  progress.

And not encouraged to either, as ever increasing SEN, now EHC funding, would  be removed from their school.

‘Learning disability’, is now termed, ‘intellectual disability’,  the old ‘mental retardation’.

Now deemed an  ‘inapproriate’ term,  as insufficiently PC.

Yet,  substantively/conceptually now forms the basis of an autistics persona, and education.

Yet, there is little evidence for any link between learning disability and autism,

see study in 2009 suggesting little evidence, despite up to 70% of ASD, being now accessed with as learning disabled.http://bjp.rcpsych.org/content/195/6/531

This special needs ‘education’ goes hand in hand with behaviour charts.

Such behaviour becoming progressively worse, as the boredom of thwarted curiosity and intelligence, kicks in.

And ADHD, aggression, irritability results and medication is prescribed.

More children than ever in 2016 were put on off label antipsychotics for ADHD

https://www.madinamerica.com/2016/07/more-children-receiving-off-label-antipsychotics-for-adhd/

So the autistic at as young  as 5 can be made pharma cows for life.

See here the pharma role in the creation of ADHD

And now ADHD has been widened to attentive ADHD

http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/315359.php

Ritlevin does not work after three years, so stronger more expense antipsychotics are used.

These drugs then actually create a learning disability, pathologically by changing the pathways in the brain, so a once normal brain, with a mere learning difference due to autism becomes learning disabled.

As the effect of the drug reduces  thinking, observation, and motivation.

So, the intelligent, could not improve, even if appropriate education were in place.

Meanwhile, the special needs residential school ,charges £3,500 per week , for its own army of Speech Therapists, Educational Psychologist, Behavioural therapists and specialist teachers.

And make huge profits either for venture capital or recycled to executives if Charitable.

The ‘experts’ mainly manage one to one contact and containment by low wage, itinerant class room teaching assistants.

Why, has no one, ever wondered why, National Autistic Residential Schools, rarely produce 16-18 year old autistics, with a single GCSE?

After,  the equivalent of 5 Eton students fees,of ‘specialist’ input?

Because the autistic are now not taught to National Curriculum in specialist schools, but to specially created P Scale assessment.

At 16, under ECHs schools are no longer funded, instead ‘education packages’ for life skills to train the autistic for their 24/7 surveillance captivity, in ‘independent of family/ community living’ are funded, and this money can be claimed, by  usually residential provider until the autistic is 25.

The autistics’, lack of adaptive skills, tying a shoe lace, changing a battery, organising cupboards, using machines, following instructions, continues the myth of retardation. https://iancommunity.org/ssc/autism-adaptive-skills.

CAMHS treatment and assessment Units require an IQ of 50, or less, yet, there main occupants are non verbal autistics.

The ‘treatment’ consists of antipsychotic medication (illegal, as not short term severe behaviour) which acts as a major neuro depressant/tranquiliser.

Until, at 18, the final insult.

A mental capacity assessor, will deem, on an autistic’s sad lifetime achievements, of at most P scales, and, few adaptive skills.

The MCA assessment will be on adeptive skills not cognitive ability .

The, particularly non verbal autistic, will now be labelled ’ severely intellectually disabled’, regardless of previous IQ .

This label aids, an illegal blanket capacity assessment, that the autistic are so intellectuality impaired, they were never, and will never be, capable of making any decisions.

And , allows the state commissioned, private/charity sector provision, to earn £4,000 per week, for their lifetime encagement, in their ‘best interests’.

Now, that’s  rip off, abuse and discrimination……
