    Yes, and is massively over-diagnosed. Often complete bull**** if you ask me, by people with limited experience and education. But that is an entirely different thread...autism, or "normal-spectrum" behaviour??!!!

    I'm hoping the thread detailing everyone's vpd makes even one anti vaxer think about their decision and maybe even change their mind,.....wishful thinking perhaps!

    Couldn't agree more!! 10-15 years ago it was ADD/ADHD now it's autism/Aspergers.

    I think it was started by an anti vaxxer??Wonder what the intent was behind starting it? Possibly a different outcome than what was desired.

    I find that difficult to believe - it is a fairly comprehensive diagnosis process involving multiple professionals.

    You'd certainly hope so. However I received an 'official diagnosis' from a doctor regarding a student, in which he wrote, among other things: '[student]'s mother has read about ASD on a range of websites, and states that her son has occasionally displayed some of the behaviours listed' as a fundamental aspect of his official diagnosis 😳

    I have heard of GPs "diagnosing" it after one meeting- I think a proper diagnoses should take a bit more than that.

    Working in the education system taught me a bit about this. It SHOULD be a comprehensive process but unfortunately many times it's not. As Atropos said some GP's will confirm a diagnosis after one meeting and occasion occasionally they may be I officially diagnosed through the schooling system itself. Sometimes parents are at their wits end and they are just looking for a diagnosis and it's almost an "if the shoe fits" type situation.

    Don't get me electing their are certainly cases of it, but I struggle to believe it's related to immunisation and probably more linked to diet or something like that.

    Just to throw a spanner in the works though...we had a year level come through 2 years ago (currently year 8) and majority of those kids (it was about 80-90%) had behavioural issues, or learning difficulties of some description. Talking with other teachers they had the same issue with the same year level. Apparently a new strain of vaccine was developed wen those kids had their 2 YO vaccinations and a lot of teachers were blaming that. I think it was just coincidence, but the teachers and parents were convinced.
