How Jacqueline Laurita found out about her son’s autism
Jacqueline and Chris Laurita were overjoyed when they welcomed their son Nicholas in 2009. The boy was reaching milestone after milestone, much to the delight of his proud parents.
The Lauritas grew concerned when 18-month-old Nicholas started to lose speech and motor skills and stopped reacting to his name and people around him. Months later, Nick was diagnosed with autism.
Although Nick’s diagnosis was difficult to process at first, Jacqueline and Chris received overwhelming support from other parents of kids with autism. The Lauritas are doing everything they can for their son to have a normal life.
