Nick's brother Zac has autism

Nick Lachey is best known for being the lead singer of the boy band 98 Degrees and for having once been married to Jessica Simpson. Lachey has a brother that is autistic, and recently he talked about his brother for the first time. Nick's brother is Zac Lachey and he is 19 years old.

Nick says that before he talked about why he supports Autism publically, he talked with his brother to be sure he was ok with the information being public. The diagnosis for Zac came when he wasn’t learning in the typical way at school reports CBS News. At first, they thought it was ADHD, but later Zac was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome.

"He's referred to as high-functioning autistic," said Lachey, 40, told CBS News. "So he's verbal and able to go to a fairly typical school. He's socially different than what we perceive as normal for kids. He gets anxious and he's very focused. He hones in one on thing and he can't be taken out of it...He's a good kid, a sweet kid...He just learns differently than most people and reacts to situations differently."

 

"There's just so many questions and very few answers. It's just something we have to do more research on and we have to get the answers that these families so desperately seek. Mine included."

To help raise money for investigating Autism, Lachey was at the fifth Lindy Gold Bunny Celebrity Auction last week where he was one of 100 celebs that appeared.
