AutismOne is a supposednon-profit organization with a history of propagating baseless and dangerous ‘cures’ for autism spectrum disorder (ASD). They have repeatedly espoused anti-vaccine rhetoric amongst other unsubstantiated ‘treatments’ for ASD, and they treat ASD as a disease to be cured, which has repeatedly been shown to further the discrimination that can sometimes make living with ASD a struggle. Their conventions have previously featured appearances of health-fraudsters such as discredited former doctor and progenitor of the anti-vaccination movement Andrew Wakefield —who infamously falsified his research in order to suggest a link between vaccines and ASD — and Kerri Rivera, who makes money by selling vulnerable groups bleach and recommending they drink it. And, from May 22 thru 26, they plan to once again spread lies in a convention hosted at the Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel.

AutismOne masquerades as a family-oriented support organizations in order to draw in emotionally vulnerable parents and make them the targets of health scams that can have dramatic adverse health effects. Their charlatanry serves only to line their own pocketbooks while dealing real damage to real individuals as well as the reputation of the scientific and medical communities on the whole. They should have no quarter in today’s society — let alone quarter located so close to one of America’s busiest hub airports. Please, sign this petition and pass it along, then call Loews Chicago O’Hare Hotel at 847-544-5300 and Loews Hotels corporate at 1-855-401-8122 to request they cancel AutismOne’s reservation. It’s up to us to disrupt this maliciously self-serving organization’s campaign or misinformation.
