“Even if you all mean well, it’s still not ok to say she has Autism or needs speech therapy or to comment any sort of thing like that to anyone about their child,” Jade, who is expecting baby number two in August, continued. “We are her parents, we have a great pediatrician, and we know her development.”

After defending her daughter, Jade posted other screenshots. "The public noticed your post that your daughter doesn't speak. So say thanks and move on," one troll said. "You're defensive because you're afraid she really isn't speaking."

“She is not a monkey to dance for you,” the mother-of-one said in response. “I’m just going to assume the people commenting these things are NOT parents, because they clearly don’t have a clue."
