Last quote about Autism

Steve Holtzman
If you take certain positions – denying climate change would be an example; questioning the validity of a wealth of evidence that vaccinations don't cause autism; speaking in terms of alternative facts as if facts are things which are merely opinions.feedback

Blythe Harris - Stella & Dot

The designs not only celebrates the diversity of families affected by autism, but also the strength of a community coming together to improve the lives of their loved ones.feedback

Mandy Farmer

Things are this hard for him, and yet he never gives up. Life is all about perspective.feedback

Mandy Farmer

We can tell people about how hard he works in all of these therapies and that he still can't effectively use a spoon or fork, or independently dress himself or tolerate a room with loud noises, but watching this short clip says it better than I ever could.feedback

Stacey Gordon

I just wish Julia was around when my son was younger. This is so special for me to be Julia, it's going to be huge for the autism community. Because [I] am constantly reminded of those moments you wish your child had never experienced – like bullying or being left out – and he will probably experience again. But at the same time, I'm so grateful that, through this experience as Julia, I can help other children.feedback

Sherrie Westin

She is going to be so powerful on two fronts. It will help kids with autism be able to identify with a character and it will also play an important role in destigmatizing autism. We want to reach all children in terms of giving them greater empathy and to talk about and increase awareness and understanding. We just had to bring her to life. She was created as a positive response from the autism community.feedback

Stacey Gordon

There are moments in the show where Julia gets overwhelmed by a loud sound and gets bumped when she's not expecting it and she has a panic attack and covers her ears and cries. Allen takes her out and does deep belly breathing to calm down. And in that moment, I had to imagine my son when he was going through all of that and used those moments to bring Julia to life.feedback

Sherrie Westin

We wanted to make sure Julia had characteristics that were consistent with those on the autism spectrum in such a way that kids could identify with Julia. We worked hard to make sure that kids could identify.feedback

Lisa Goring

We think it's a terrific next step for Sesame Street.feedback

Stacey Gorden

The 'Meet Julia' episode is something that I wish my son's friends had been able to see when they were small. I remember him having meltdowns and his classmates not understanding how to react.feedback

Leslie Kimmelman

I knew nothing about autism, and it seemed that those around me – even the professionals – didn't know much either. Today, happily, that has changed. There's greater awareness, and there has been much progress understanding autism. But it's still a puzzle, and every child is affected differently.feedback

Jeanette Betancourt - Sesame Workshop

In the U.S., one in 68 children is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. We wanted to promote a better understanding and reduce the stigma often found around these children. We're modeling the way both children and adults can look at autism from a strength-based perspective: finding things that all children share….Just as we look at all children as being unique, we should do the same thing when we're looking at children with autism.feedback

Lessie Kauzlarich

They don't understand why the car went off the road. They keep trying the same things that haven't worked and, without help, they often eventually give up. For instance, we had two students who wanted to be friends but were driving each other crazy. Their joking can sound mean. When it came to a head, our therapist sat them down and had both say what they felt about the other person. So they get perspective, learn conversation skills and conflict resolution. And they do it in a safe environment where they can say what they feel.feedback

Lessie Kauzlarich

We've done video modeling where we record students and then they watch themselves engaging in positive social interaction, which is powerful and reinforcing.feedback

Elizabeth Crais

If they ask a flood of questions and don't get a response, teach them to stop. They may not always understand why this is appropriate, but through practice and reward they learn new, positive behaviors.feedback

Kristen Kalymon - Kennedy Krieger Institute

I had a kid who, after trying a lot of activities, got involved in adaptive ball with kids with physical disabilities, though he did not have a physical disability himself. He ended up loving it … there was not as much pressure [to perform], and he found common ground.feedback

Kristen Kalymon - Kennedy Krieger Institute

You want a parent that is attentive and willing to monitor. You don't let kids totally disappear without listening for something they may not be able to negotiate themselves. In a stalemate a parent has to step in.feedback

Jeanette Betancourt - Sesame Workshop

We wanted to demonstrate some of the characteristics of autism in a positive way.feedback

Leena Haque

Our message is that individuals aren't weird, they are just part of a neurodiverse spectrum upon which we all sit.feedback

Michelle Olsen

She was like, Mice are the only creatures that look at you like they could take you down, even though they are the size of your thumb. Mice are like furry little snakes.feedback

Jill Silverman

It was extremely frustrating. It made me not want to study social behavior anymore.feedback

Mustafa Sahin

Single laboratory studies on a single mouse model were not providing sufficient confidence in the pharmaceutical industry to invest in autism spectrum disorder.feedback

Rodney Samaco

I can't even keep track anymore. It's not like they come out once every three months; this is happening every week.feedback

Michelle Olsen

Maybe, that has something to do with the model systems we are using.feedback

Peter Kind

If it doesn't translate from a mouse to a rat, is it likely to translate through to humans?feedback

Jill Silverman

I think he kind of got offended. Like, Does this mean this negates everything that has happened in the mouse because it's different in the rat?feedback

Rodney Samaco

They like to put their head in the crevice of your elbow. They would look very nervous. Then, they would bite you. We're not here to say anyone's strategy is better or worse. We're here to say, Let's put this in our toolbox to try to understand autism and related disorders. There are so many papers we're preparing right now on various rat models.feedback

Surabi Veeraragavan

You can actually grab the rats and put them in your hand and treat them exactly how you would treat a puppy. You can put them on your shoulder, you can put them on your arms; they will go to sleep right away. You can pet them and play with them.feedback

Gwyneth Paltrow

When my father was diagnosed with cancer in 1998, I really started to think about the link between environmental toxins and cancer. What's the impetus behind the way our bodies are no longer able to overcome all these skyrocketing diseases, from immune disorders to autism to diabetes and cancer? What is going on? That exploration definitely started me down the path. I want to be healthy, to feel as good as I can.feedback

W. Ian Lipkin

Most people, when they think about viral infections, think in terms of viruses going into tissue, killing cells, damaging cells.feedback

W. Ian Lipkin

I think that this makes a very strong case for continuing to try to develop herpes simplex vaccines.feedback

Milada Mahic

We believe the mother's immune response to HSV-2 (herpes simplex type 2) could be disrupting fetal central nervous system development, raising risk for autism.feedback

W. Ian Lipkin

We are now looking at other triggers. We think that a wide range of different types of infections can cause this.feedback

Joseph Piven

It's the first marker of any sort, brain or behavior, in infants, to predict which individuals would be classified as autistic at 24 months of age. But now we are entering the era of possibly detecting autism before the symptoms are even present.feedback

Kelly Botteron

Because of the regions that are affected and the way which they're affected, they can help us learn more about what is causing autism.feedback

Matthew Pletcher

Decreasing the age of diagnosis, even by a couple years, could have profound impacts for the entire lifetime of that particular person.feedback

Joseph Piven

If we can target interventions before autism appears and before the brain changes appear, during a time when the brain is highly malleable or plastic, we can have a bigger impact on the outcome.feedback

Joseph Piven

In the field we are always trying to detect autism at younger ages, so we can start treatment earlier, but we hit a wall around 2 to 3 years of age, because the symptoms don't start showing up until around then.feedback

Hope Hicks

The President-elect enjoyed his discussion with Robert Kennedy Jr. on a range of issues and appreciates his thoughts and ideas. The President-elect is exploring the possibility of forming a commission on autism, which affects so many families; however no decisions have been made at this time. The President-elect looks forward to continuing the discussion about all aspects of autism with many groups and individuals.feedback

Karen Remley

Claims that vaccines are linked to autism, or are unsafe when administered according to the recommended schedule, have been disproven by a robust body of medical literature. It is dangerous to public health to suggest otherwise. There is no 'alternative' immunization schedule. Delaying vaccines only leaves a child at risk of disease for a longer period of time; it does not make vaccinating safer. Vaccines work, plain and simple.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I'm not against vaccinations for your children, I'm against them in 1 massive dose. Spread them out over a period of time & autism will drop!feedback

Evee Bak

I hope that the outcome could be something that could eventually help my brother like a therapy or something just so that it could make his life easier or make him be able to be successful in his life.feedback

Alison Singer

So we're trying to find girls who have the autism genes, but no symptoms and then figure out what else do they have in common and can we identify this female protective effect, because if we can find this female protective effect, we can use it to protect both boys and girls.feedback

Joseph Buxbaum

Girls actually can have the same mutation as a boy and not have autism, and even need to have twice as many mutations on average to actually manifest with autism.feedback

Evee Bak

The thing at the forefront of my mind is mostly just taking care of Tommy and making sure he's happy and healthy.feedback

Erin Lopes

He's a wonderful person and I don't think that we'd ever want to change him.feedback

Allison Klein

She didn't meet the stereotypical behaviors of no eye contact, no communication, hand flapping.feedback

Kevin Pelphrey

Nobody really wanted to make the call. Had she been a boy, there would have been much more pressure to look into it.feedback

Ben Affleck

As a movie it celebrates our differences and says that how we're different is kind of what makes us special and interesting, and I think that theme is applicable to autism as well as to a whole host of other things.feedback

Gavin O'Connor

When we finished the film we screened it for some people in the (autism) community and some of the foundations, like 'Autism Speaks' and some other ones. We wanted to get their feedback before we locked the movie, just to make sure that we were accurate and we got everything right, and fortunately I was very happy that they were happy with the movie.feedback

Cynthia Addai-Robinson

When you're watching the accountant, you are feeling for him and caring for him and are hopeful for him and that only works when you have a fully realized character.feedback

Christian Wolff

Some of the people I met and did research with were very blunt with me and there's something really charming about that. You're just going to get the truth from that person and it's kind of winning in a way. There's a little bit of that in Christian. He sees no reason for social niceties or to tell a white lie. He just tells the truth.feedback

Lisa Meeks

The interview is a major hurdle. MindSpark walks them through the process and gets to know them in more dynamic and holistic ways.feedback

Suzanne Wright

When you have the U.N. sanction it, it means a lot.feedback

Angela Geiger

What Suzanne Wright has done to raise awareness of autism is immeasurable. Even during the past few difficult months, her determination never wavered. For more than a decade, she has been a tireless advocate on the national and international stage: at the United Nations, on Capitol Hill, at Autism Speaks Walks nationwide, and in personal letters of support to individuals and families affected by autism.feedback

Angela Geiger

Suzanne sparked a global conversation with one question: How can we help people with autism live their best possible lives?feedback

Daniel Coury

The odds are very positive that the product of an IVF pregnancy or an induced labor is going to be a healthy child. The great majority of children with autism have not been the product of an induced labor; we still don't know all the causes of autism.feedback

Bryan King

These investigators were able to take advantage of a very large population database to look within families and compare the risk for siblings who were induced versus those who weren't, thus better controlling for other genetic and environmental risks.feedback

Maja Mataric

Play with children with autism doesn't happen very much.feedback

Maja Mataric

We are particularly motivated by autism because the incidence is so high and so many children today are diagnosed with autism.feedback

Dennis Wall

So kids with autism are not getting enough of the care that they need, for as long as they need it in the United States and we need to fix the problem.feedback

Dennis Wall

The Autism Glass programme is meant to teach children with autism how to understand what a face is telling them, period. And we believe that when that happens they will become more socially engaged, and as a consequence of that gain confidence in social settings. The access to care is too limited.feedback

Robert Ring

Glass and wearable technology are the future. They're going to play a pivotal role in how we understand, manage and diagnose disorders like autism.feedback

Dido Harding

Throughout the cyber attack, we worked hard to put our customers first, and we know that they have appreciated our efforts and our honesty throughout. Nevertheless, last October was a challenging period for TalkTalk and its customers and, in recognition of that, I have made a personal decision to donate my bonus to our charity partner, Ambitious About Autism.feedback

Stuart Shapira

Regardless of what the number is, we know autism is common. Research shows that the earlier a child with autism is identified, the better. The sooner the child starts receiving services, the sooner the child will reach his or her full potential.feedback

Danièle Langloys

Now, families seek help privately from autism specialists – that is a sector which is developing. So all in all about 20 percent benefit from requisite care. However for adults it's a different story – no autism diagnosis, no services – we see these people wrongfully hospitalised in psychiatric wards.feedback

Danièle Langloys

In Europe we are lagging behind on this issue: we have a retrograde vision of autism, diagnosis is rare and often badly carried out, there is discrimination against people with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in school and in the professional world, there is misguided psychiatric treatment, a lack of educative and social support.feedback

Aurélie Baranger

France is often named and shamed as one of the worst in Europe because you would expect better from a country with the tradition of human rights and so on. But it's not the case, unfortunately. There is still more to be done in order for the situation to be satisfactory for families of those with autism in France.feedback

Aurélie Baranger

In many cases it's families that are left to care for adults with autism and when parents die or are no longer there to care for them they are often left alone and without any support. And we've seen reports in the news of people who have died because they did not have anyone to care for them.feedback

Aurélie Baranger

If the family is not there sometimes they will go to psychiatric hospitals where they will sometimes be heavily medicated in some countries and they will not receive adapted support for autism.feedback

Danièle Langloys

Basically nobody dares question the psychoanalysts in this realm which blocks people from being diagnosed with autism and therefore stops them from receiving the care they need.feedback

Ashley Roman

They're able to correlate the fish consumption with protection from autism and I think that is potentially a very important finding. We still recommend that women avoid the fish that are highest in mercury like catfish, shark, swordfish and giant mackerel, typically the larger fish that have longer lifespans and they tend to concentrate more mercury in their tissue.feedback
