DIEZEL'S MIRACULOUS RECOVERY FROM AUTISM

Toni Braxton's youngest son, Diezel was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3. Autism is a developmental disorder characterized by difficulties with social interaction and communication and by repetitive behavior.

Prompted by her son's condition, and eager to reach out to other mothers dealing with the same challenge, Toni became the global ambassador for the organization Autism Speaks.

When Diezel was 13, Toni revealed that her son no longer exhibited symptoms of autism:

"My youngest son, as everyone knows, my son Diezel suffers from - or I should say suffered from autism. I am one of the lucky parents."

Toni attributed her son's recovery to early diagnosis and enrolment in programs suggested by Autism Speaks' co-founder Suzanne Wright.
