Smear piece: Parents seeking online, non-medical help for autism being reported to CPS

Reporter Brandy Zadrozny has written an article for NBC News revealing how certain Facebook groups consisting of parents seeking natural cures for their children who suffer with autism have been infiltrated by fake Facebook accounts of people who want to turn in these parents to Child Protective Services (CPS) for the purpose of having their children taken away from them.

While this may appear to be something illegal (and it probably is), Zadrozny seems to present these people who are using fake Facebook accounts as heroes.

Her article has been picked up by many other corporate-sponsored “mainstream” media outlets.

Zadrozny reports that the two woman profiled in her article are “moles” and claim to be mothers of “autistic children.”

They apparently believe that autism is “a condition with no medically known cause or cure” and that it is wrong to seek non-medical cures.

Therefore, they see it as their mission to identify these parents, using fake identities, and attempt to have their children removed from their homes.

To gain entrance to these groups, Eaton and Seigler disguise themselves as desperate parents looking for answers to their child’s autism. Once they’re in, they take screenshots of posts from parents…

Eaton and Seigler research the parents online to determine their identity and location, then send screenshots of the Facebook posts to the local Child Protective Services division…

The pair say they’ve reported over 100 parents since 2016.


Zadrozny’s piece shows what lengths these impostors will go to in order to hunt down these parents of children with autism, many of whom are suffering vaccine injuries.

“The problem is if you manage to get one (Facebook page) knocked down, it reopens the next day but it goes secret,” Dalmayne said.

“So unless you’ve got a good fake profile, which I have, and you’re friends with people in these groups who will tell you where the next secret group has opened, you can’t report them. A lot of them I’m not in and we’ll never know about.”

Facebook’s policy on personal profiles states:

Authenticity is the cornerstone of our community. We believe that people are more accountable for their statements and actions when they use their authentic identities. That’s why we require people to connect on Facebook using the name they go by in everyday life. Our authenticity policies are intended to create a safe environment where people can trust and hold one another accountable.

Facebook goes on to state “Do Not”:

Engage in inauthentic behavior, which includes creating, managing, or otherwise perpetuating

  • Accounts that are fake
  • Accounts that have fake names
  • Accounts that participate in, or claim to engage in, coordinated inauthentic behavior….

In addition, every state in the U.S. has laws on false impersonation, stalking, online privacy, among others.

Who Are These “Moles”?

Zadrozny writes that Amanda Seigler is “38, a mom to six in Lake Worth, Florida,” and that Melissa Eaton is “39, a single mother from Salisbury, North Carolina,” and that both “work” as well as “take care of their autistic children.”


According to Amanda Seigler’s LinkedIn profile, she is a Veterinary Technician / pet sitter at Amanda’s Compassionate Pet Care.

We could not verify any information about “Melissa Eaton” and her identity.

Emma Dalmayne

However, Zadrozny gives us an indication about the kinds of people and groups who may be behind these two women by identifying the woman who allegedly “inspired” Seigler and Eaton, Emma Dalmayne.

Emma Dalmayne was among the first and remains one of the loudest disability rights advocates to fight against harmful autism “cures.”

A London mother to autistic children and autistic herself…. it was Dalmayne who inspired Eaton and Seigler by first infiltrating Rivera’s groups and making videos exposing parents who treated their children….

Dalmayne describes herself on her blog as:

An Autistic and an Autism Advocate and activist against all Autistic mistreatments.

“Mistreatments” apparently means any treatments at all, as she holds to the mainstream medical establishment’s claim that autism is “genetic” and has “no cure.”

Therefore, anyone trying to “cure” autism is to be vigorously opposed in the name of “autism rights.”

From a post on her blog entitled “Why Would Anyone Want to Cure Autism?”

As a teenager on the autism spectrum, I feel deflated when I stumble across articles centered around some ‘wonder drug’ that’s claimed to cure autism. One of my pet peeves is the fact that people treat autism as an illness or inferiority that needs to be cured.

My head fills with a variety of questions:

Why would anyone want to cure autism?

How can people be so hateful?

I believe it’s ignorant that individuals are more interested in curing us rather than taking the time to understand us and accept us for who we are. Autism is a neurological difference so it’s not a disease; this basic fact makes all the difference (well, to me it does).

It is also revealing to look at other people associated with Dalmayne who are part of this group opposing anyone trying to cure autism.


Since their belief is that autism is genetic and not related to anything in the environment that might be causing it, they must oppose the (tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of?) parents who claim their child was perfectly normal and not diagnosed with autism until later in life, particularly after receiving certain vaccines.

As we have documented numerous times over the years at Health Impact News, these parents of vaccine-damaged children come from all walks of life, including doctors, attorneys, PhD scientists, and many others. The heavily pharma-funded corporate media would like the public to think only uneducated parents believe vaccines can cause injuries.

Showing a link between vaccines and autism would eliminate the premise for the “advocacy work” for “autism rights.”

Fiona O’leary

Fiona O’leary

One of Dalmayne’s apparent colleagues is Fiona O’leary from Ireland, who claims that she was diagnosed with autism at age 42, and also has children with autism.

Fiona and Emma are good friends, and work very well as a team.

O’leary is solidly in the “vaccine extremist” camp, believing that ALL vaccines are safe and effective for ALL people, ALL the time, by force if necessary.

This extremist view is not supported by everyone in the pro-vaccine camp, and many physicians, for example, are pro-vaccine but against forced vaccinations. (See: Medical Doctors Opposed to Forced Vaccinations – Should Their Views be Silenced?)

O’leary not only wants to silence anyone who claims they are healing their child with autism, she apparently wants to silence anyone who dares to question the safety of vaccines, as can be seen in this video of her trying to attack Dr. Suzanne Humphries when she was in Dublin, Ireland in 2017 for a premiere showing of the film “VAXXED.”
