Free Online Library for Families with Developmentally Delayed and Autistic Children
Big Red Truck Learning Systems Launches Comprehensive Online Tool
ROSWELL, Ga., Nov. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — With the rise in autism and developmental disability rates, the need for easy access to helpful information and local resources is greater than ever.
One of the first, and often most challenging, steps towards finding help for a child is to locate local resources and relevant information for the unique needs of each family. Currently, this online information is fragmented and difficult to find, which often results in frustration for families in their time of need.
In response to this problem, Big Red Truck Learning Systems launched its One Goal Library, a comprehensive and easy-to-use directory of state and local agencies combined with an online database of current research and articles for families looking for autism, developmental and speech/learning disability resources.
“We heard from so many families about the challenges faced looking for local resources related to autism and learning / developmental disabilities. These families would search for hours online and just end up frustrated. We, at Big Red Truck, wanted to simplify this process so we built the One Goal Library. The one goal of this comprehensive library is to make finding local and regional resources, as well as current research on autism and learning / developmental research, as easy as possible,” says Keith Vargo, CEO of Big Red Truck Learning Systems.
The One Goal Library simplifies the search process and provides relevant information, contact emails and phone numbers, along with descriptions of the agencies and journal articles, all in one location. The library is free to all users and can be found at www.bigredtruck.org/one-goal-library.
About Big Red Truck Learning Systems: After finding success with their own speech delayed child, the founders of Big Red Truck were determined to share this learning system with other struggling families. This pursuit led to the development of Big Red Truck Learning Systems, an integrated educational tool that combines an instructional app with physical interaction into the learning process. For more information on the company and its Wearables Series, please visit www.bigredtruck.org. Inquiries or requests for information should be directed to: email@example.com.

Autistic people have fought the inclusion of ABA in therapy for us since before Autism Speaks, and other non-Autistic-led autism organizations, started lobbying legislation to get it covered by insurances and Medicaid.
ABA is a myth originally sold to parents that it would keep their Autistic child out of an institution. Today, parents are told that with early intervention therapy their child will either be less Autistic or no longer Autistic by elementary school, and can be mainstreamed in typical education classes. ABA is very expensive to pay out of pocket. Essentially, Autism Speaks has justified the big price tag up front will offset the overall burden on resources for an Autistic’s lifetime. The recommendation for this therapy is 40 hours a week for children and toddlers.
The original study that showed the success rate of ABA to be at 50% has never been replicated. In fact, the study of ABA by United States Department of Defense was denounced as a failure. Not just once, but multiple times. Simply stated: ABA doesn’t work. In study after repeated study: ABA (conversion therapy) doesn’t work.
What more recent studies do show: Autistics who experienced ABA therapy are at high risk to develop PTSD and other lifelong trauma-related conditions. Historically, the autism organizations promoting ABA as a cure or solution have silenced Autistic advocates’ opposition. ABA is also known as gay conversion therapy.
The ‘cure’ for Autistics not born yet is the prevention of birth.
The ‘cure’ is a choice to terminate a pregnancy based on ‘autism risk.’ The cure is abortion. This is the same ‘cure’ society has for Down Syndrome.
This is eugenics 2021. Instead of killing Autistics and disabled children in gas chambers or ‘mercy killings’ like in Aktion T4, it’ll happen at the doctor’s office, quietly, one Autistic baby at a time. Different approaches yes, but still eugenics and the extinction of an entire minority group of people.
Fact: You can’t cure Autistics from being Autistic.
Fact: You can’t recover an Autistic from being Autistic.
Fact: You can groom an Autistic to mask and hide their traits. Somewhat. … however, this comes at the expense of the Autistic child, promotes Autistic Burnout (this should not be confused with typical burnout, Autistic Burnout can kill Autistics), and places the Autistic child at high risk for PTSD and other lifelong trauma-related conditions.
