Jenny McCarthy has an interview with Hollywood Life while attending Chelsea Handler's book signing.... Ms. McCarthy states that her son has been "undiagnosed" with Autism...yet, and this is a HUGE yet...he might get Autism back because Autism is toxic overload and you never know if he will be overloaded again... Kind of hilarious coming from a woman who touts botox injections....(talk about hypocrisy)...!!!
Here is the excerpt
Jenny McCarthycouldn’t be happier with her son’s marked improvement. Although recent reports suggested that her 7-year-old son, Evan, was wrongly diagnosed with autism in 2005, Jenny insists to us exclusively that her son DID have the disorder, but has since been cured thanks to advances in treatment.
“My son is completely better…You wouldn’t be able to tell!” Jenny, 37, raved to us at her friend Chelsea Handler’s Chelsea, Chelsea, Bang, Bang book launch party at the Beverly Hilton March 17. “I think autism is toxic overload … it might come back. But for now, he’s undiagnosed.”
Watch the video to hear Jenny discuss some side effects Evan is still experiencing, including ADD-like symptoms, as well as where she sees her son’s diagnosis in the future.
Now see...this is the type of statements made by Jenny and her crew that really gets my blood boiling.
Autism is a diagnosis that has been so misused by people who are so desperate for a "cure" that they actually think you can remove the label....
In the interview..Jenny states he is a bit ADD, but that is it.... Hey Jenny....!!! ADD is a behavior with Autistic children...
And, if this is true, why is this young boy still being taught in a school for Autistic children?
And Jenny....Autism does not come and go...that is just pure crap...
I just wish you would mind what you say before you open your uneducated, misinformed, brain-washing mouth. Parent's like myself, who are out there fighting every day for services for our children are getting a bit ticked off because you make Autism seem so nonchalant.... Easy come...easy go !!!!
For all the parents out there that think Autism is "toxic overload" or "mercury poisoning"... do me a favor... Remove the autism diagnosis from your child now..... that way more services will open up for our children who respond to the proven therapies that work. Autism is not a diagnosis to play with. We worked hard to try to get the diagnosis for our oldest daughter over 18 years ago. It was not an easy diagnosis to get from even a neurologist. But, the diagnosis meant the door opened wide for better services and more of them. 18 years later, I have to beg for these services. I have to sit and watch as my daughter's therapies were cut in half due to lack of funds.
If you watch the interview with Jenny...you see that she states Evan speaks, has eye contact and makes new friends.... WOW!!! So do my autistic kids.... My kids relish hugs and kisses...they love to grab my face and look at me and others. They love to maintain contact with us and those around them. All but Kiernan are verbal...and believe me, we know what he wants when he wants it...
Don't get me wrong...I am thrilled Evan speaks and maintains eye contact....that is wonderful. But, please...and I mean PLEASE.... Don't use the Autism label as a label that can be put on a child and taken off just because their "toxins" are overloaded.... that is doing harm to parent's who are really trying hard to maintain services without disrupting our children's lives. Autism is not like a bandage...you don't put the label on when it is deemed necessary and remove it when they are "better".
