Carrie has four children with complex needs. She joined Lorraine with her 16-year-old daughter Talia, who is autistic, to speak about bringing more awareness to the public. Alongside her husband David, Carrie runs a monthly support group for parents of girls on the autistic spectrum to share experiences and strategies.
