    In case you haven’t heard. Jenny McCarthy’s son never had autism. He has Landau Kleffner Syndrome. Ooops…looks like she’s going to have to do a lot of diversionary tactics to distance herself from this major blunder. One has to wonder how long she knew…’s a scary thought to think publishers are this stupid and reckless. Didn’t they do a background check on her before they published such manipulative lies? Jenny is quite smart, by the way and must have some very savvy agents. They knew Evan turned out not to be really autistic, but kept putting it out as if he were.

    If you look at Jenny’s background with her son you’ll see a very very interesting picture. one that is quite chilling actually, perhaps one of the biggest frauds ever to infiltrate the autism community.

    Jenny first told the world her son was an Indigo child. Then he had seizures. And was brought by ambulance to hospital where they gave him a boatload of ativan and other seizure controlling medications. He then started taking seizures meds. Daily. Notice she RARELY speaks of his seizures. I guess she figured autism label would be a better marketing tool, and she was right.

    As Evan’s seizures came under control, so did his “regression” that she blamed on autism radically improve. Of course she never talks about that fact. After all, how can she after she moved quicker than a volcano into the autism community and started writing books and hitting talk shows and doing magazine and talk show interviews. All within several months of her son’s alleged “cure” from the alleged “autism” she told us he had.

    Nope. He had laundau kleffner syndrome. And she has YET to admit this and tell the public her son does not nor ever had true autism. Meanwhile, she keeps her distance from this subject and is now jumping full swing into a diversionary tactic away from those few years of her obsessive diatribe against vaccines and telling the world she cured her son of autism. That alone should raise some serious red flags for investigative reporters.

    Jenny is a fraud. She knows her son was misdiagnosed. To cover her ass, she has recruited “doctors” to splash the covers of her books, as if that gives her credibility. Nice tactic. Very obvious, but a good try. She has seriously pissed off many in the autism community. She has made a mockery of true, real autism. She needs to be investigated and exposed in a book asap. This woman is just nuts. Her poor son. He is obviously still having episodic seizures which is common with landau kleffner. Jenny, it’s time you came clean. Stop printing your fake books about your son’s fake autism. Enough of this charade. You can’t hide from this reality by writing another book and parading around in a new sexy suit for the photographers to capture, as if this will all distance you from the pathetic and fraudulent case you made of your son’s alleged autsim and his cure. You didn’t cure shit Jenny. He was never autistic.

    (apparently my previous submission was truncated.)
    It’s an old, old no-brainer strategy autismresearch1 is using here. When one is unable to challenge the tremendous achievements of a person, just attack the personality. I don’t care if Jenny is actually a cussing octupus with a third grade education. My respect for her comes from recognizing her tremendous achievements in terms of assisting families with autistic children. Jenny does not claim to be a board certified pediatrician specializing in autism. For a broad introduction to autism and causative factors, with mostly board certified pediatricians speaking, just google up “autism: made in the USA” transcript “billy d. norwood
