Autism is a brain development disorder that oftentimes limits an individual's intellectual ability and affects their social life.

When Diezel’s diagnosis came out, Braxton went public with the news and often spoke about it on her TV show Braxton Family Values.

In a 2011 interview, she disclosed that she always blamed herself for her son's condition.

“It’s been rewarding to see how he’s grown, but I remember when I first found out. I remember blaming myself; I thought it was my fault,” she told OK!

She explained that the son was probably autistic because she didn't take the vitamins as directed by the doctor during pregnancy.

It would, however, become a story with a better ending because by 2016, the youngster no longer showed signs that he was autistic.
