The Dangerous Truth About Botox!

VIEWS: 34 PAGES: 145

It's botulinum toxin A, derived from bacterium botulinum-the same bacteria that causes botulism, a poisonous illness that can lead to paralysis and even death. The Humane Society states that because every batch of Botox must be tested on animals it causes ...differing levels of muscular paralysis. Clinical trials discovered that polypeptides and peptides are biologically active to help aging, and or damaged skin.

       As more children are diagnosed with autism, school districts are forced to

reexamine their practices as both substantive and procedural issues arise in special

education due process hearings and court cases related to children with autism. The

purpose of this study was to analyze and evaluate the special education due process

hearing decisions involving students with autism held in the state of Texas from the

school years 1995-1996 through 2004-2005. The guiding questions for this research

were: (1) What are the descriptive characteristics of the due process hearing decisions

involving students with autism? (2) What are the overall outcomes of the cases? (3) Are

there possible relationships between descriptive characteristics of the due process hearing

decisions and the outcomes?

       Descriptive research methods were used to analyze 86 special education due

process hearing decisions over the 10-year period. The following case characteristics

were described: date the hearing decision was rendered, gender of student, size of school

district involved in the hearing and regional education service center in which the district

is located, hearing officer, legal representation of parties, involvement of expert witnesses
involved in testimony, issues and relief requested at hearing. Results suggest that overall

outcomes for issue and requested relief rulings favored school districts. Possible

relationships were found between the case characteristics of the due process hearing

decisions and the outcomes.
