General Information


autism and celebrities

Celebrities who are bringing more autism awareness include the following:

Oprah, Jenny McCarthy [visit her organization, Generation Rescue], Holly Robinson Peete.  On Tuesday, September 18, 2007, Oprah had Jenny McCarthy and Holly Robinson Peete as guests and the topic was autism.  McCarthy wrote a book, Louder Than Words: A Mother's Journey in Healing Autism, to give the message of hope, faith and recovery based on her own experience with her autistic son, Evan.  Peete also talked about her son who has autism and how she has tried every therapy for her son and discovered his talent for music because of his ability to recognize perfect pitch.

Another celebrity, Jon Stewart, anchored a special to raise funds for building a new wing where future teachers can be trained for teaching children with autism. See his show at Comedy Central by going to and clicking on Comedy Central under the TV category.

Thanks to these celebrities, autism is being brought into people’s consciousness that hopefully will lead toward more research for this disorder.
