Jenny McCarthy on Oprah

September 17, 2007

As I was watching Oprah and playing on my laptop, I looked up from my computer to see a preview for tomorrow’s episode with Jenny McCarthy. I loved reading her book during my first trimester, and I am saddened to hear her son was diagnosed with Autism. Since I have worked in schools and have a degree in Psychology, I am very familiar with Autism, but most people can not truly understand the complexity of Autism. With a celebrity discussing the disorder on Oprah and being so open, Autism may finally get the attention needed to increase research and education about this disorder. Jenny McCarthy has already written a book about her heartbreaking story called Louder Than Words: A Mother’s Journey in Healing Autism.
