Here is their statement:
The needs of the children we serve must always come first. All of us at Thoughtful House are grateful to Dr. Wakefield for the valuable work he has done here. We fully support his decision to leave Thoughtful House in order to make sure that the controversy surrounding the recent findings of the General Medical Council does not interfere with the important work that our dedicated team of clinicians and researchers is doing on behalf of children with autism and their families. All of us at Thoughtful House continue to fight every day for the recovery of children with developmental disorders. We will continue to do our very best to accomplish our mission by combining the most up-to-date treatments and important clinical research that will help to shape the understanding of these conditions that are affecting an
ever-increasing number of children worldwide.
Dr. Wakefield is probably wanting to distance himself from Thoughtful House so that the negative fallout of this ridiculous nonsense does not impact them. He continues to make sacrifices to stand up for our children and what many of us know to be true. That some children were damaged by vaccines, many children do suffer from severe GI issues that is not just "because they have Autism" and that biomedical treatments can help many people feel better and exhibit less symptoms of Autism.
