RHONJ’s Jacqueline Laurita Reveals That Her Son Has Autism

Well here is a story line that is definitely not scripted from The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Housewife Jacqueline Laurita has revealed that her 3-year-old son Nicholas has autism. After realizing that her son had delayed motor skills and wouldn’t respond to his name when called, Jacqueline visited several doctors with him until she got the diagnosis that he was autistic.

“I worry about him being independent when he’s older,” admits Jacqueline to People Magazine, who is also mom to Ashlee, 21, and C.J., 10. “I spend all my time researching what we can do for him.”

Adds her husband Chris: “You never want to think that your child isn’t perfectly healthy. We didn’t want to believe it was true.”
