Meaghan Martin is speaking out on a issue that’s close to her heart — autism.
The 18-year-old actress shared just why she’s speaking out, “My little brother [Zachary] has an autistic disorder called Asperger’s Syndrome. It’s on the higher functioning end of the Autism spectrum. I feel very protective of him; I can defend him, especially because he has a disorder that a lot of people don’t understand. I just want to get out there and educate people…it educated me. ”
Meaghan continued, “I did not know anything about autism until we found out about Zachary, until he was diagnosed. It just made me more aware and it’s opened my eyes to the entire autism world.”
