Stop Calling it Autism!

Stop Calling It Autism! was founded with the purpose of helping defeat Autism once and for all. As crazy as it might sound at this point, defeating Autism is totally possible, science currently exists that explains EVERYTHING medically and is as concrete and clear as you can ever imagine, no puzzles or mysteries.

Instead of hearing one success story here or there, we have to work together and prove that Autism is a set of symptoms caused by a medical disease so we can get the most needed medical help for ALL the children suffering from Autism.
We are starting a fight for your children and for all the children suffering from Autism out there. We promise you that we will do our best. Now... We will only be successful if every single family with children suffering from "Autism" gets involved to make the SCIA goals listed below a reality. We need you!
Below are the links for the Stop Calling It Autism! (SCIA) brochure that we are putting together. This brochure has been a great exercise to define who SCIA is and what the mission, believes and goals are. The brochure explains what SCIA is all about. If there is something you don't understand let us know. The brochure has to be easy to understand and "as clear as water".

Please review the brochure and let us know what you think. We are just about to be ready to send the brochure for print and we need your invaluable opinion.

SCIA Goals
· Create a world that redefines Autism
· Create a world where doctors no longer think that Autism is a developmental or psychiatric disorder but a medical problem that can be treated medically.
· Create a world where parents can take their children to any doctor, in any city, in any country where the doctor says I know what this is; recognize that it is an immune mediated medical condition, and knows what to do about it.
· Create a world where researchers and governments recognize the enormity of the Autism epidemic and have no choice but to put all available resources into solving it
· Create a world where the pharmaceutical companies are competing to be the first to develop the medicines to treat and put an end to Autism
· Create a world where researchers, educators, behaviorists and doctors realize they all have a piece of the Autism puzzle and they need to work together to solve it.
· Create a world where when a child turns 18, the only group home he is going into is a college dorm
· Create a world that has a single focus and recognizes that Autism is a set of symptoms caused by a medical disease.
· Create a world where individuals with Autism recover and have the potential for full productive lives.
