Toni Braxton often posts her son on social media. Recently, her son Diezel has taken an important step.
Diesel Braxton is the son of Toni Braxton and Keri Lewis. The boy graduated from a private school that merges in-person, virtual, and hybrid learning called Fusion Academy.
Her son has signed with Wilhelmina Modeling Agency, and she couldn’t be more proud. The actress said in her interview that the boy was diagnosed with autism at the age of 13.
“My youngest son, as everyone knows, my son Diezel suffers from — or I should say he suffered from the neurodevelopmental disorder. I am one of the lucky parents.”
Tony says it is very important to diagnose this disease as soon as possible and get the right treatment.
“Early diagnosis changes everything. I will tell you this. I will shout it from the rooftops.” My son Diesel is off the spectrum. Off the spectrum being autistic.”
Toni says that she had noticed the boy since he was two years old and that her friend had advised her to treat him in the right way. When Diezel was diagnosed with the neuro-development disorder, Susan was quick to act and recommended therapy for him. She advised Toni ‘Get him in this program. Do this, do that.’
Susan had autism herself and helped Diezel in many things. Susan Wright is no longer alive today and Tony says about her “I miss her already, I mean, I can’t believe she is gone.”
Autism – spectrum disorder, is a neurodevelopmental disorder where an individual finds difficulties in two-way communications and social interaction. Some common symptoms are repetitive movements and behaviors, trouble in transitions, and difficulty in understanding emotions. Research says regressive autism in which young children start to lose speech and social skills is more prevalent in African American children.
We are pleased that his son was accepted like the others.
