    It’s amusing and interesting to see people so concerned about protecting Wakefield, yet those same people don’t seem to mind that Jenny McCarthy’s son never had acutal autism. He has landau kleffner syndome.

      I’ve seen that speculated, even in the scientific literature by an expert, but have not seen it confirmed.

    Harry, as Sullivan states I don’t know those claim has ever been confirmed so I think some benefit of doubt should be given that it is in fact autism. What concerns me more about Jenny is that she does not seem to openly talk about the intensive ABA her son did.
