When children are neglected/abused and it stunts their development they tend to show autistic type traits. This probably is why her diagnosis was changed to that. She probably shows repititive behaviors and fixations and in a way the diagnosis is a good thing it could be used to get her out of her situation but not opening up that can of worms.
Agree.

I also think in this case it would have been the necessary wake up call to Susan (had she had any sense) to acknowledge that her children needed radically different treatment to what she was trying to push on them. I think the court probably naively assumed that she was just a misguided parent, one who,-rather archaically- maintains that there is a strict medical diet for a given diagnosis and she therefore reacted to the children's behaviour accordingly. In actuality, she's just insane and incapable of perceiving reality as it's warped by how own bipolar-ravaged mind.

In sum, I get the impression that the diagnosis of autism constantly reminding Susan her kids were not schizophrenic was supposed to be a subliminal part of Susan's rehabilitation as a parent.

Interestingly, i think this pretty much confirms that Susan's recent claims (as parroted through Jani) that the Sz diagnosis has been reinstated are bullshit. She just needs the label and people's belief in it to comfort herself, let the utter meaningless of her identity as a warrior mom set in.

Ususally I'd agree but they have proof of her doctor shopping to get DX and medications before. Bodhi never had a Sz Dx but she got him Sz medications used in those that untreatabe by all other Sz medications.

She probably shows repititive behaviors and fixations and in a way the diagnosis is a good thing it could be used to get her out of her situation but not opening up that can of worms.

This is something I think about often while reading this thread. Thinking back to my studies in school, I remember learning about institutional autism. While Jani and Bodhi were not institutionalized in some Romanian orphanage, they definitely grew up locked away in multiple hospitals sometimes for months at a time. Jani spent a lot of her early childhood at places such as BHC Alhambra and treated it as summer camp when not drugged to the gills. It was like a home away from home for her in a twisted way because it gave her a break from Susan and Michael when she felt overwhelmed. There were times when she even expressed a desire to go back to inpatient because it offered her more stability and order than she had at home. All of this happened during her important developmental years and behavioral health centers are not equipped to ensure young children meet those milestones, that's not their job. Most young children aren't routinely dumped in hospitals and mental health facilities all because their parents need a break. Both of these children even spent multiple holidays inpatient, including Christmas.

As for Bodhi, his case is even worse in a lot of ways. He was always an afterthought and both parents admitted that they had a second child specifically to be Jani's caregiver and "savior". He was absolutely neglected his entire childhood and just blended into his surroundings. Until Susan decided to ramp up her manic delusions of him being schizophrenic, we never saw her spending time with him or bonding like any other mother would. I'm not saying that drugging him and using him as a source of personal entertainment is bonding by any means, but this is the only time where she seemed even slightly interested in him. This poor boy couldn't even be a normal baby and cry without Susan freaking out because it supposedly triggered Jani. They were both separated into two different apartments and had limited contact with each other as well as their parents. I'll never forget them trading off their kids back and forth daily and going as far as hanging a dry erase board in their apartments with their daily schedule and writing down which parent was "staff" for the day. Michael said the purpose of the board was to give Jani a sense of being back in a hospital because she felt stability there and everything was calmer. I just can't imagine any of this, an entire childhood of nothing but being in hospitals and mental health facilities and yet both children preferred it over being home.

While both children clearly didn't tolerate the ridiculous amount of drugs pumped into them, Jani always handled them better while Bodhi was drooling in the corner and spinning in a computer chair to soothe himself. The worst part is he was capable of much more even with any existing limitations he had but due to the medication he was literally trapped in his own body with no way to communicate his wants and needs.

The takeaway from all of this is that even though their case is different than a lot of others I've seen, it has a lot of the same underlying factors as other children with institutional autism. Take two children and add in mentally ill, narcissistic parents willing to pimp their children out to the media, eliminate all of their privacy, pump them full of drugs and then severely neglect their real needs in favor of chasing after a ridiculous diagnosis. All this leads to is mentally and emotionally stunted children who can't cope in healthy ways and exhibit many autistic traits.

Autism is a spectrum so there are multiple different ways it can manifest but my money is on a variation of institutional autism. We will never know if either one of them would have been considered autistic before all of the drugs but there is plenty of evidence to show they were both much more normal before this shit show went into full effect.

Rather sure Bodhi always has been autistic he was diagnosed way before she was trying to get a Schizo daignosis for him.

Bodhi tics off all the typical autism symptoms I've seen with low to moderate autists I've come across. It's not his fault of course since they should have gotten him early intervention therapy. But I'm positive he would have been autistic regardless. The problem is that they neglected him, triggered him, drugged, and institutionalized him to the point where he was moving into full blown retardation. He's probably way more functional now.

The case shows immediate positive changes after the drugs were removed.

There's still question in my mind on that one. She was shoving large amounts of Benadryl down his throat as a baby and even slipped him Jani's Thorazine. If you neglect a baby's needs they will show autistic traits early on. In the first formative years babies rely on interaction with parents, learn to understand and convey various emotions and facial expressions, require one on one bonding, etc. There are certain things that cannot be properly retaught if they are not learned in their early formative years. Bodhi was never given the attention a normal baby/young child would get because everything was about Jani and her "schizophrenic journey". Hell Susan dragged him to work regularly when she was doing on air traffic reports and placed him in a car seat in her recording booth saying she prayed he would stay quiet and not cry. Bodhi was always treated as an accessory and a burden from day one and all of his developmental needs were severely neglected.

He may have indeed been autistic without all of this happening to him but if you look at older videos of him, a lot of his autistic traits weren't as visible. I don't think he would have ever been 100% neurotypical given his parents shitty genetics but I guarantee if he had a normal home life where his needs were met and had parents that actually worked with him, he would have developed much more normally and his autism would have manifested as much less severe. If I am not mistaken he was diagnosed autistic at age two. Most doctors nowadays will not even diagnose a child that young unless their autism is extremely severe. An acquaintance of mine works with autistic children and told me about a year ago that doctors are now hesitant to slap on the label of autism until around age four or five because kids are constantly growing and changing and many times they will outgrow their autistic traits. Once again, I'm definitely not saying that he is not autistic because I think that is very apparent but how much of that is nature versus nurture is anyone's best guess. I don't think anybody could grow up in a house like that and not end up extremely messed up. :(

Anyone who boasts about conducting a "witch-hunt" should not be taken seriously.

edit: I understand he's claiming witchcraft is being done on children. That's exactly my point. Anyone who legitimately believes in witchcraft should not be taken seriously.
Anyone who thinks "elite" politicians live in Fresno HAS to be nuts. There's nothing in Fresno but Bulldogs and meth.

It would be the court who decides the psych, not CPS, but yes--the goal for CPS and family court is usually reunification between child and parent (at least in my state). I don't really know how anyone could look at Susan and say she is mentally healthy, or "dedicated her life" to the kids. I mean she did dedicate her life to destroying them but I'm sure that's not what they meant.
I am aware they are different, I was just using that as an example. I.E., "similar to how attorneys will specifically seek out "professionals" to support what they want for court cases, I could see CPS seeking out people to support what they want."

RE: autism and autistic traits.

Just about everybody at every age and stages of development shows what can be interpreted as autistic traits. Did you know that as part of teacher licensure, you can take a SPED course called Diagnostics? Because it is a thing lately to give truck to plain old SPED teachers, OT's, Speech and Language pathologists, Quantum Learning instructors, psychologists and school social workers the power to "diagnose" autism.

See what the matter is with this?

And we already know, via Susan and Michael's attention whoring and courting A list fame for themselves via doctor shopping and harassing IEP meetings that there absolutely are doctors, GP's, specialists, nurse practitioners, and psych doctors looking to be the VANGUARD of blowing the lid off the next big "new thing."
Because when that happens... they get published. They get grants. They get fellowships and speaking engagements. They get the title of expert, guru, or pioneer. Their name appears in textbooks and they are name dropped in colleges everywhere. It's the next best thing to becoming a George Clooney or Taylor Swift...

Or St. Fauci of da Coofs.

In SPED classes at the grad level, they actually do say that with many, MANY conditions and co-morbids, the common thread is the parents. Neglect. Pathologizing everything to garner work avoidance and welfare. Sexual abuse. Physical abuse. Psychological abuse. Rejection. You name it, will manifest autistic traits.
But remember that in Clown World, they've ripped the doors off its hinges and nuked it by broadening the standards for diagnosis. It is bullshit because we need to STOP. REWARDING. BAD. PARENTING.

And this is why (in my personal opinion), I do not believe either child ever had autism. But I also know that I, and no one else for that matter, will ever know if that is true. Especially when a mentally ill parent keeps throwing wrenches and traps into everything in a bid to destroy her children's lives all for the sake of asspats and free gifts.

It is my guess, but again, we'll never get a true answer.

Positive changes, but he certainly is not normal. Going from 5 words to speaking in a full sentence is a positive change, yes. He’s not zombified on drugs anymore. Yet, he clearly has major issues and always will. To me, in my limited experience, he acts exactly like a low-functioning autist, however...
But I also know that I, and no one else for that matter, will ever know if that is true. Especially when a mentally ill parent keeps throwing wrenches and traps into everything in a bid to destroy her children's lives all for the sake of asspats and free gifts.

Isaac Mongia was live with Jani if someone wants to watch. I couldn't finish because he's fucking retarded and Jani was just parroting the same things that Susan has already made her say on video.
Stream with highlights:

[Interview starts at 14:10]
Isaac: Jani is very young and smart and she's going through problems with her brother... [DCFS] are bugging her, attacking her mom, telling lies, y'know, just like they do with a lot of other kids. Now her little brother lives with the foster parents [who] have this very 'deviant behaviour'. The kid's in diapers! He's 'degressing'!

["Degressing". I see you've had some college, Mr. NASA employee.]

[15:45]
Jani: Me and my brother were taken by CPS. And a few days later, I went into severe medical withdrawals, like, severe. I couldn't stop throwing up, I couldn't stop, y'know, I couldn't stop throwing up. I couldn't eat anything, not even water, for five days. I thought I was going to die from dehydration.
Isaac: And that was from what, the drugs?
Jani: Yes.
Isaac: So they had you all messed up basically on these drugs?
Jani: n-no... How they messed me up was they cut my meds cold turkey.
Isaac: Oh so you needed the meds and they messed you up by taking them from you.
Jani: Yes.

[17:00]
Isaac: Wow. That's shocking! What was the reason for them to do that?
Jani: I don't know, they didn't have a reason at all. They didn't know what they were doing, they were very stupid and they just didn't care.
Isaac: They don't know what they're doing. They're not your mom! So for them to take you from anywhere and to change your medical --- you know, that's, that's dangerous! That's very dangerous especially for a child. So tell us a little bit about your brother-
Jani: Yes, and it was doctor prescribed medication.
Isaac: So basically they were acting like they were the doctor and going against the doctor's word.
Jani: yep:
Isaac: yeah that's illegal.

[Yes, because only Susan know's what is best for Jani. We know that Susan was abusing PRN prescriptions and overdosing her and Bodhi both so what she was getting was never really 'prescribed by a doctor' anyway. Given that Bodhi's meds led him to be immunocompromised, (low WBC) which certainly is what caused him to contract scarlet fever, I can imagine CPS felt a sense of urgency with getting the kids off the drugs as soon as possible.]

[19:16]
Jani: I--They took me to UCLA on April 3rd 2019, [because] I was banging my head on the concrete. They didn't admit me, they just sent me back to Wayfinder. A couple months down the road from that day, I realised my brain wasn't functioning how it should. I realised that my brain wasn't functioning like it used to.

[Jani explains here how she seemingly had cognitive decline with memory impairment and disorientation, but yet to everybody except Susan, she appeared much more alert and aware off her meds after her removal.]

21:11
Isaac: So basically what they did for just that short period of time affected you for the rest of your life.
Jani: Yes, and I'm pissed off because my brain is my everything.

[Yet she's comfortable with the fact that her mother has chemically fried it into soup.]

[23:19]
Isaac: Why don't you tell us a little bit about Bodhi?
Jani: Oh, Bodhi! Um... First of all, he's 20x more severe than me and he needs a lot of services that DCFS have never really provided for him. When they took him away, like, they cut everything just like with me.

[What care exactly was Bodhi receiving beyond respite care, which is for Susan not him, and copious amounts of medication? Susan seemed uninterested in actually perusing proper therapy for him or supporting his education, just solely focused on drugging him. He received ABA, but it was useless since Susan made no effort to continue the training in therapy outside of sessions.]

Isaac: Why don't you talk about some of the abuse that your family have witnessed regarding your brother.
Jani: He's always covered in bruises from who knows where and he's always jumping on stuff he shouldn't be jumping on, and he wants to come home really bad, and it's hurting him that he can't come home.

[Doesn't align with the court reports that Bodhi cut off visits with Susan early, YouTube videos of him groaning 'I want you gone!' at her and generally showing apathy towards her existence.]

Isaac: it saddens me a lot when you talk like that because it's TRUTH. A lot of people don't want to listen to kids, give kids a voice, and that's wrong man! That's wrong!
Jani: He's non-verbal and he verbalises that he wants to go home.
Isaac: so every time you see him, he has a bruise on his body?
Jani: Almost.
Isaac: And even if he did it to himself, which we know is not true, somebody else is still responsible for that because he's a minor! Bodhi's special and he deserves special help.

[25:58]
Jani: [Bodhi's] in diapers, he has diaper rash and stuff.
Isaac: So they took him away and now that his foster mom has him, he's in diapers?
Jani: Yes. when he was taken he was in boxers, he was potty trained, and now he's back in diapers.

[26:30]
Jani: Not only is he in diapers, but he also had a maxi pad (?) for a while--
Isaac: What!? A Maxi pad?
Jani: -- on top of the diaper.
Isaac: Yo, that's child abuse! You can't put a maxi pad on a boy, that's for a woman!
Jani: I know. It was to collect the pee, but still.
Isaac: If they can't control his bowel movements, they aren't going to be able to control anything else. He needs to come back home.
Jani: He does!
Isaac: If whoever is abusing him is watching this, you'd better be careful, because i'll go to you. I'll go to you with the camera and the badge and we'll protect the First Amendment. We'll dirty you up. We got all the pictures already. A lot of stuff is gonna come out. We bringing the camera, we bringing the evidence AND WE BRINGING THE LAW!!!
Jani: Yep!

[Lol.]

[31:07]
Isaac: So you want justice, you want reform, you want change.
Jani: I do. I've wanted change since 2008.
[31:48]
Jani: Like I said, I've wanted change since 2008, since I was 6..... Yes. Since i was 6.

[What? Jani would have been too busy screaming about wanting to go to UCLA and playing along with Mommy's script about Calilini for Discovery. At that time, Susan was fully committed to sucking up to every doctor, authority or institution she could wrangle into her media circus. She is the ultimate hypocrite with this whole anti-authoritarian litigious tirade.]

[Jani leaves at 33:27]

Does this guy even know what a maxi pad is? Its literally just a white pad with adhesive on one side. Blocking bodily fluids from leaking through clothing isn't exclusive to women. How is this guy even remotely qualified as a child advocate expert? Nothing about this interview was insightful or objective.

Cory talked to the "advocate" as well.

It wasn't Bodhi's foster mother who got assaulted by Susan, it was a DCFS worker who was trying to stop her from taking pictures.
What's with all Cory's head jerking? Do you think he has been sampling some of the kids' meds? Also, his shirt is about 2 sizes too small and is about to pop a button.

Cory loves having the camera on him and talking out of his ass.

From the comments on the linked Facebook video. Seems to be Susan's only comments.
