Breslin’s StoryThe Autism Site
When Breslin was nine months old, his mother Cathrine noticed he did things differently than the other children in play group. He wouldn’t look at her when she called his name. “Breslin was in his own mind,” Cathrine says, “and nobody else was around.” So she began googling potential causes for his behavior, including hearing loss and developmental delays. She remembered having seen Toni Braxton’s PSA about autism when she was pregnant with Breslin, but she pushed the thought away. When she finally gave in and looked up the signs of autism, she realized it described her son perfectly.
