Thankfully, her 7-year-old son is making great strides these days.
“He started mainstream school and he’s more social,” Braxton, 43, told PEOPLE Moms & Babies at the event. “His speech is coming along wonderfully.”
“He’s doing great,” she says, adding that Diezel works with an occupational therapist. “We’re really proud of his progress.”
Braxton and estranged husband Keri Lewis are also parents to elder son Denim Cole, 8.
