Jenny McCarthy Says She Helped “Fix” Her Autistic Son

Jim Carrey, Jenny McCarthy

There are a ton of debates when it comes to Autism and the causes of it. Jenny McCarthy has been getting a lot of flack for saying that her son became autistic  after getting a vaccine and for saying she helped fix her son.

Jenny McCarthy has always been very vocal about praying to “fix” her son Evan’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 Jenny’s son, now 7, ever had autism to begin with.

Jenny’s message to parents of trying to do whatever you can to help “fix” your child’s autism, has given her many supporters. But in the article with Time magazine, doctors question whether her message is actually a dangerous one.

“Evan couldn’t talk — now he talks. Evan couldn’t make eye contact — now he makes eye contact. Evan was antisocial — now he makes friends,” she explains. “It was amazing to watch, over the course of doing this, how certain therapies work for certain kids and they completely don’t work for others … When something didn’t work for Evan, I didn’t stop. I stopped that treatment, but I didn’t stop.”

I can not comment because I really don’t know why autism occurs. It’s just sad and frustrating when you can’t help your child and if Jenny feels like she helped her son overcome Autism, then let her be…its her opinion right!
