How not to do epidemiology:

The new statistic comes from a national phone survey of more than 95,000 parents in 2011 and 2012. Less than a quarter of the parents contacted agreed to answer questions, and it's likely that those with autistic kids were more interested than other parents in participating in a survey on children's health, CDC officials said.

How not to do advocacy:

"We've been underestimating" how common autism is, said Michael Rosanoff of Autism Speaks, an advocacy group. He believes the figure is at least 1 in 50.

Fuck you, Mike. When we get to "every child is autistic" do you get a set of steak knives?

Everyone's aware of rich white people diseases. Things no one needs to work on "increasing awareness" of:

Breast Cancer
Autism
Aids

We've got it. Wear rubbers, check your tits, and get a diagnosis for your kid if they aren't an overachiever.

It's only because they are classifying more things as "autism" than before. When I was younger I jumped from one obsession to the next and they called it asperger's. Then I grew up and now I just call it "focus".

It's important to get kids who truly have debilitating conditions the help they need - but you're right - it's out of control now.

My wife seems to think our second has some autism spectrum or whatever the fuck it is, because he took some MegaBlox and sorted them by color. He's thirteen months old, I see that as a good sign of development, not something to classify as a disorder.

Well, not "only" that. For instance, the CDC said that the results were likely weighted because it was a voluntary survey and parents with autistic children are more likely to fill out a survey regarding autism than other parents.

I'm sure your wife is lovely, and has many winning qualities. Knowing of her only in the vacuum of your reference, she sounds like a panicky high maintenance dimwit. If your kid only wants to sort blocks, and doesn't start talking for two more years, then worry.

What's wrong with MegaBlox? They're perfect for 1-3 years, before switching to Duplos.

And I don't buy RoseArt, but other family members do.

No, you've got her pretty much right. Jacob (and Thom, for that matter) is pretty much as perfectly normal as you can get.

Or parents who think their kids are autistic because some doctor couldn't find any other way to explain why little jane wasn't interested in the overload of options her parents gave her and instead honed in on one thing. It all comes back to the same issue - loads of kids are getting misdiagnosed and branded with labels that follow them the rest of their lives because parents can't just.. let them play with the **** blocks.

I heard that Jenny McCarthy's kid is autistic. Did you hear that Jenny McCarthy's kid is autistic? Jenny McCarthy says that Jenny McCarth's kid is autistic because she vaccinated Jenny McCarthy's kid. Jenny McCarthy cares deeply about autism.

Personally, I think Jenny McCarthy's kid has autism because she's an annoying person.

I'm ok with brain gimped, at the very least it's not some of that new age crap.

This. A thousand times, this. I think that parents seem to think that any behavior at all is somehow "wrong" and requires some kind of adjustment. I don't get it. Kids go through lots of phases when developing. Let them do it and move on. Trying to diagnose a kid at that early age for anything is pretty ridiculous.

Diagnosing is a very difficult thing to do, especially with things like autism spectrum disorders since there's a lot of grey area and because especially in young children it can change as they grow up.

Basically, you don't have an autism spectrum disorder unless you both tick enough of the boxes and experience (severe) difficulties in your day to day life because of those things. Growing up, learning to deal with who you are and external influences can all change whether you experience difficulties or not.

Also relevant documentary:

This is a little overblown, but yes, it happens. It's important to remember that while there are "fix my not perfect child" parents, there are also people with children who don't start speaking or responding to visual cues until age 4, people with extremely violent toddlers, etc. Child mental illness is a real thing. Also, I wouldn't hang over-diagnosis completely on helicopter parents, this idea that child mental health clinicians are just exasperated and cave in to the demands of concerned parents is ********* There are many clinicians who feel pressured to diagnosis for a variety of reasons. Malpractice concerns, summer homes in the Hamptons, etc.
