Does Neil Young have a child with disabilities?
Neil Young actually has two disabled sons and they are both afflicted with the same condition. Though it is not autism, it is a very physically debilitating disease. The boys have been diagnosed with cerebral palsy. The two very different conditions do have some seeming similarities though. The rocking that someone with cerebral palsy does is similar to that of a person with autism. On the part of a cerebral palsy diagnosis it is involuntary and uncontrollable because of the brain disorder. For someone with autism it is a way to remain calm. Some of the confusion may result from other similarities.
