"My youngest son, as everyone knows, my son Diezel suffers from - or I should say suffered from autism," she said. "He [has] no signs of autism."
This news may come as a surprise to many who have watched Braxton advocate for autism awareness over the past decade-Diezel was diagnosed as autistic at three years old.
In 2012 Braxton was named Global Autism
Ambassador for Autism Speaks, widely lauded as the largest autism advocacy group in the nation. And now the seven-time Grammy winner says she's "one of the lucky parents" because her son "is off the spectrum." The spectrum she referred to is a medical term used to identify a wide range of symptoms, skills, and levels of disability for those with autism.
