Austism speaks to Grammy winner Toni Braxton, especially because her son Diezel,5, was diagnosed with autism at the age of three. In a new PSA featuring her son Diezel, Toni Braxton urges parents to be familiar with the “red flags” for autism: “All of us – parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, teachers and family friends to children – must become familiar with the red flags for autism,” Braxton says. “The earlier children are diagnosed and early intervention begins, the better chance a child has of a brighter future.”

Watch below as Toni makes it known that 1 in 150 children are now diagnosed with the developmental disorder.

  1. wow her son looks exactly like her in the pic with the pink sweater….too cute

  2. That’s a nice PSA. That was too cute with her son. I have a cousin with Autism his mother is 24 he is the 3 child and its like he is lost because his mother really doesnt know what to do.

  3. Glad Toni is using her celebrity for a good cause and glad to see such a strong black woman for a change noticed because of her talents not for her body.

  4. Toni Braxton’s son doesn’t appear autistic. She may be another celberity trying to hijack the autism diagnosis to bring fame to herself. I just don’t see this child as truly autistic. Sorry toni.
