Cured of Autism
The 15-year-old son of Toni Braxton, Diezel Braxton is said to be cured of autism. In an interview, the singer Toni stated that her son Diezel has shown no signs of autism and healed.
At the age of three, the young Diezel was diagnosed with autism and ‘off the spectrum.’ After a difficult pregnancy, on the 30th of March, 2003 Toni gave birth to Diezel that forced her to go on bed rest.
It came to Toni’s notice that Diezel was not making eye contact with people when they spoke with him. Also, he preferred to play alone. That concernment, later on, was fruitful for Toni. She was chosen out to be the national spokesperson for Autism Speaks in 2007.
