I met with Jacqueline Laurita, of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," at her home to discuss her son Nich-olas' diagnosis of autism. Regardless of our views on reality television, Lau-rita deserves the utmost of respect for how she has used her celebrity status and the show as a platform to increase awareness about the disorder. What was most touching was when Laurita spoke about the "crash course" she was forced to take in order to understand autism and start treatment for her son ASAP. Time was not on her side. Like many of us, including myself, autism is something we only know a little bit about until it hits home.
