Amy revealed on the show that her husband Chris Fischer suffers from Asperger’s syndrome which is a form of autism. Singer Susan Boyle also is another celebrity who is known to have the syndrome. She said:
“We both wanted to talk about it because it’s been totally positive.
‘I think some people resist getting diagnosed… because of the stigma that comes along with it. But the tools we’ve been given have made his life so much better and our marriage and our life so much more manageable.”
She feels that people should talk about it and get the proper tools to manage the cases and improve the patient’s quality of life. She added:
‘I just wanted to encourage people to not be afraid of that stigma. I think a lot of people with autism who go undiagnosed when I think their life could be better if they got those tools.’
