The Allism Epidemic

Let's face it, everyone knows a person with allism.

In the 1980s, there were no "people with allism". Everyone was just "people".

Now up to 49 in 50 people may be allistic, and allism seems to disproportionately affect women.

People with allism base decisions on emotions rather than sensory input and rational thought. Outrageous!

Here are some signs your child may be allistic:

  • Playing mindless "pretend" games
  • Overwhelming desire to be touched or held
  • No desire to be alone
  • Talks excessively about feelings
  • No "special interests"
  • No interest in routine
  • No repetitive behaviors
  • Little to no response to strong lights, smells, noises, tastes, or textures
  • Doesn't repeat words or phrases
  • Fixation on eye contact

In order to combat the allism epidemic, please get your children evaluated if they show any of the above signs so that they can be forced to assimilate—I mean receive treatment—earlier.
