Songstress Toni Braxton and her husband Keri Lewis are proud parents to two sons – Denim Cole, 4 1/2, and Diezel Ky, 3 1/2. Toni recently spoke out about the challenges she’s faced as a mother, particularly being taken seriously and getting her younger son diagnosed with autism.

Toni feels some anger towards Diezel’s doctor, saying, "They dismissed me. I don’t know if it would have made a difference or not for him to be diagnosed earlier, but they had a ‘wait and see’ attitude. It makes me so angry because a mother knows when something is wrong with her child."

Have you or someone in your family had an experience with autism? Did you have trouble getting a diagnosis like Toni did?
