Episode 142- Sharing the other side of the story, with Jenny McCarthy

Today I am chatting with the one and only, Jenny McCarthy! Jenny and I talk all about the early days with her amazing son, Evan. Everyone knows the public side of their story, but today Jenny is sharing the more personal side. We talk about Evan’s very scary seizure as a toddler and his eventual diagnosis of ASD. Jenny and I also discuss her feelings at that time, especially because when he was diagnosed in 2002, there was so little known about autism and there was hardly anything on the subject in the media. Nowadays, so much has changed! Evan actually just graduated from high school and Jenny talks all about how he’s become an incredible self advocate. This is the first interview where Jenny has discussed autism in several years. I’m so honored that she chose to share it with me! It was truly a thrill to have her on and we had such a great time chatting. It really gave me a whole new perspective on their autism journey. I hope you enjoy listening!
