Holly Robinson Peete, one of the five co-hosts of the CBS daytime talk show The Talk, joined Gene and Julie to discuss Autism Awareness Month.
In the interview, Holly discusses how difficult it was for her husband to accept that one of their twins was diagnosed with Autism.
Today, The Talk focuses on fathers of children with autism. Sometimes called the “forgotten parents,” this show explores how fathers process an autism diagnosis differently, resulting in marital discord. Holly Robinson Peete’s husband, former NFL QB Rodney Peete, author of “NOT MY BOY, A Father, A Son and One Family’s Journey With Autism,“ joins the show to lead the conversation with fathers whose children have been diagnosed with autism.
The Talk airs weekdays on CBS 11 at 1pm CST.
