There are a ton of debates when it comes to Autism and the causes of it. JennyÂ McCarthy has been getting a lot of flack for saying that her son became autistic Â after getting a vaccine and for saying she helped fix her son.
Jenny McCarthy has always been very vocal about praying to â€œfixâ€ her son Evanâ€™s autism, who was diagnosed in 2005 at the age of 2, and believing that vaccines are a link to the disorder in children. Now, in a new interview in Time magazine, Jenny reveals that her dreams have come true. However, the article discusses how doctors are questioning whether Jennyâ€™s son, now 7, ever had autism to begin with.
Jennyâ€™s message to parents of trying to do whatever you can to help â€œfixâ€ your childâ€™s autism, has given her many supporters. But in the article with Time magazine, doctors question whether her message is actually a dangerous one.
â€œEvan couldnâ€™t talk â€” now he talks. Evan couldnâ€™t make eye contact â€” now he makes eye contact. Evan was antisocial â€” now he makes friends,â€ she explains. â€œIt was amazing to watch, over the course of doing this, how certain therapies work for certain kids and they completely donâ€™t work for others â€¦ When something didnâ€™t work for Evan, I didnâ€™t stop. I stopped that treatment, but I didnâ€™t stop.â€
I can not comment because I reallyÂ don’tÂ know why autism occurs. It’s just sad andÂ frustratingÂ when you can’t help your child and if Jenny feels like she helped her son overcome Autism, then let her be…its herÂ opinionÂ right!
