Toni Braxton Shares A Big Update On Her Son’s Autism Says…

0

Toni Braxton made a startling announcement to the world this Wednesday.

In a sit down interview with Access Hollywood’s Kit Hoover and Nina Parker, Braxton said that her son, Diezel, 13, is no longer autistic.

“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, according to the NIH.

Braxton, 48, credits her son’s ability to overcome his diagnosis to Suzanne Wright, co-founder of Autism Speaks. Braxton says Wright, who died last week, gave her tips and programs that Diezel could enroll in to help him.She now describes Diezel as a “social butterfly.”“Our lives have changed,” she said.

D.L. Hughley’s Son Suffers From This Disorder And Fans Didn’t Even Know

0

Its not autism but its a rare disease.

Once a star has been in the spotlight, it is very easy for audiences to feel like they have an ongoing relationship with that person. In reality, however, no matter how much a fan loves a specific star’s work, they never get to know that person overly well. After all, most stars are the product of a carefully orchestrated promotional campaign.

Even though famous people tend to be extremely careful about the image they show the world early in their careers, a lot of them become more forthright over time. For example, when Kim Kardashian was first rising to fame, she did everything in her power to give fans a certain image of herself. However, in recent years fans have become accustomed to Kardashian posting about her Psoriasis on social media.

Throughout D.L. Hughley’s comedy career, he has been very open with his fans. Of course, the likely reason for that is that one of the key things that comedians tend to do is craft jokes about the things that go on in their lives. Even though Hughley is such an open book, a lot of his fans have no idea that the jokester’s son has dealt with a disorder throughout his life.

Hughley’s Son

Even though a lot of people think of celebrities as being somehow different than the rest of us, the truth of the matter is that they have to deal with a lot of the same concerns. On top of that, being rich and famous is awesome in a lot of ways but it also can result in some problems that average people will never have to deal with. For example, it is well documented that a lot of kids have been crushed by their family’s fame. On the bright side, there also is no doubt that some stars have great kids they adore.

Kyle’s Disorder

When Kyle Hughley was a child, doctors diagnosed him with Asperger’s syndrome. At times, D.L. Hughley has seriously discussed how that disorder has affected Kyle’s life. For example, in 2015 D.L. spoke with pride about Kyle graduating from college during an Oprah: Where Are They Now segment. After talking about his son’s education, D.L. briefly spoke about Kyle’s day-to-day life and then he got emotional as he told a touching story.

Tisha Campbell’s Autistic Son- Why He Chose to Live with His Mom at 18

0

Tisha Campbell’s kids are everything to her.

TISHA CAMPBELL ON HER SON XEN

The actress and singer, best known as Gina Waters-Payne in “Martin,” visited Jeanie Mai, Loni Love, and the rest of the co-hosts of “The Real” to talk about her new project, “Outmatched.”Apart from that, she gushed over her eldest child, Xen Martin, who recently got into his dream college. Fighting back the tears, Tisha pointed out that her son was diagnosed with autism when he was about 23 months old.

Ever since being diagnosed, she has done her best to make him as independent of her as possible. Tisha added that one day, her youngest son Ezekiel asked Xen why he chose to live with their mother even though he was 18 years old already.

According to Tisha, her son couldn’t speak properly when he was younger, but he is a lot better nowadays. Xen told her ten-year-old brother that he was still living with Tisha because she has been preparing him for life and college.

Tisha Campbell-Martin pointed out that motherhood was a thankless job, and that what mothers want the most is that their children could survive in a “great way” without them.

Although the actress didn’t reveal the college that accepted him due to privacy reasons, she said that Xen wants to be a zoologist.At that point, Tisha had to take a few seconds to keep it together. She then confessed that her son didn’t wait for his parents’ help to apply and that he was accepted even though some people believed that he would not get into the school.

The actress confessed that she was especially touched by the fact that Xen acknowledged what she has been trying to do in terms of allowing her children to be independent.

Tisha then said that Zeke told her that she was his “safe place,” which also surprised her because of her son’s age.

It is not the first time that Tisha Campbell’s kids made headlines, though. The “My Wife and Kids” star uploaded an emotional post to Instagram in late-February announcing Xen’s college milestone.

The post portrayed her with a proud smile next to her son, who was also quite happy. For the caption, Tisha admitted to crying tears of joy after learning about him getting accepted.

New Research Could Change Our Understanding of Autism- Shows Identifying Facial…

0

Identifying facial emotional expressions may alter how we see autism.

There is a widespread belief that autistic people are poor at recognizing the emotions of others and have little insight into how effectively they do so.

However, a recent Australian study has demonstrated that individuals with autism are just slightly less accurate than their non-autistic peers at recognizing facial expressions of emotion.

Recent research shows we may need to reevaluate widely held beliefs that adults with autism experience difficulties with social emotion recognition and have little insight into their processing of other people’s facial expressions.  The findings were recently published in the journal Autism Research.
During her Ph.D., Dr. Marie Georgopoulos gathered a broad range of data, with later reanalyses by the research team serving as the foundation for a series of research papers.
The results could mean social difficulties linked with autism may actually reflect differences that only become apparent in certain social interactions or high-pressure scenarios, challenging the perspective that autistic adu’lts can’t adequately read facial emotion expressions.

Study co-author and Matthew Flinders Distinguished Emeritus Professor of Psychology, Neil Brewer, says by deploying a wide array of emotions, presented in a variety of different ways, this study suggests that autistic individuals are, on average, only slightly less accurate but at the same time somewhat slower when classifying others’ emotions.

“These findings challenge the notion that adults with autism are more likely to be overwhelmed by increasingly dynamic or complex emotional stimuli and to experience difficulties recognizing specific emotions.”

There was considerable overlap in performance between the two groups, with only a very small subgroup of autistic individuals performing at levels below that of their non-autistic peers.The differences between groups were consistent regardless of how emotions were presented, the nature of the response required, or the particular emotion being looked at.The research also showed that while there was considerable variability in terms of individuals’ insight into their interpretation of others’ emotions, there was no evidence of any differences between the autistic and non-autistic samples.

“The sophisticated methodologies used in these studies not only help refine our understanding of emotion processing in autism but also provide further demonstrations of hitherto unacknowledged capabilities of autistic individuals.”“Further advances will likely require us to tap behaviors associated with emotion recognition and reactions to others’ emotions in real-life interactions or perhaps in virtual reality settings.”

Mother Found Her Autistic Child Wandering Streets On 1st Day of School, Says Teachers Were…

0

 Being left unattended on his first day of school.

It’s every parent’s worst nightmare, and unfortunately for one mother in Brampton, it turned into a reality on her child’s first day of school.

The mother tells CityNews her son, who is living with autism, wandered away into a nearby neighbourhood and away from his school on Tuesday.

She says the school knew of her child’s condition and should have done more to protect and keep him safe instead of leaving him alone. Concerned for his safety and privacy, she has chosen not to identify him.

“I felt sick to my stomach. I think I felt all emotions,” she said in an interview. “I did not know how to even process that.”

She elaborates on the frightening moment after she received a call from a stranger informing her that her son was standing alone at an intersection crying.

“Everything went completely black. I asked how she got my number. She said I found some forms inside his backpack,” the mother explained.

Tuesday was her son’s first day in Grade 1. At some point after school, the boy’s mother says her son was released without being passed off to a parent or guardian. It’s then he wandered on his own, traversing through a neighbourhood and crossing a street.
A good samaritan found him about half an hour later.
“The fact that this woman came out of nowhere. I am so just grateful for her,” she says. “It could have ended in a very bad way.”

Mother returns to school looking for answers

After reuniting with her son, the concerned mother returned to the school and spoke with a teacher, who was distraught at what had happened.
“She mentioned that the school is at full capacity now,” the mother said.
Earlier this month, the boy’s parents met with the school and teachers to go over and discuss the child’s needs. They were told that his teacher worked great with children on the spectrum, and this made them feel at ease.
Everything changed on Tuesday, and they’re now trying to determine where to go from here. One thing is certain, the mother says, there isn’t enough support for teachers.
“In Ontario, the schools are at full capacity. Our problem is that the system is going to fail our kids. There will be a lot of distractions and moments when the teachers won’t be able to handle this load. It’s not fair for them, either,” she says.
“They need specialized, well-trained teachers that can handle this. We cannot rely on this government, obviously.”

In a statement issued to CityNews, a spokesperson with the Peel District School Board said officials are grateful the child is safe, noting that the principal met with the parents to go through procedural changes that will be implemented.
“We are taking this very seriously and have begun an internal investigation,” the spokesperson said. “To ensure the safety of our students, we are continuing to examine and evaluate our school processes and procedures.”

The boy’s mother says this shouldn’t happen to any child, let alone a young boy living with autism.
The Ministry of Education tells CityNews they have invested $3.25 billion in special education grants. That includes $16.3 million in funding to enhance support for students with special education needs.
Officials say it’s up to the school board to allocate the funds responsibly.

This Is How Chuck Norris Honors Mom On 101st Birthday- Being A Single Mum She Raised…

chuck norris mother birthday.

Chuck Norris is perhaps one of the most prolific celebrities of his generation. The 82-year-old made a career out of marital arts and acting and is still respected by millions around the world today.
But for Norris, the number one person in his life will perhaps always be his mother…Chuck Norris is perhaps one of the most prolific celebrities of his generation. The 82-year-old made a career out of marital arts and acting and is still respected by millions around the world today.
But for Norris, the number one person in his life will perhaps always be his mother…
Last year for mother’s day the actor paid tribute to both his mother and his wife Gena, crediting them for the positive influence they have had over his life.Coincidentally, his mother’s birthday fell on the same day, and she turned a 100 years old, prompting her son to add, “I love you, Mom! Happy 100th birthday!”
Chuck has often talked about how his mother is still an active member of the community and is someone who prays often! He said that she prayed for the success of his career but did not stop there, “She even prayed for me to find a woman to change my life, and it worked.”

Wilma battled adverse circumstances to be where she is today. She was born in a house stricken with poverty. Later on in life, she struggled but managed to raise her three sons on her own as her husband, who was their father, abandoned the family early on.
But even on her own, she managed to raise three gentlemen. Imparting knowledge of faith in them and helping them become self-sufficient so that they would know nothing is impossible.
And her faith in her children, and imparting such a belief had a tangible impact as we saw Chuck Norris embark on a high successful career in Hollywood as a martial artist.
The actor has always been a family man. He married his wife Gena in 1998, and in 2001 they began a family.
