Jenny McCarthy's School for Autistic Kids to Close


I’m guessing Jenny McCarthy hasn’t had a good week. First, she and long-time love Jim Carrey announced via Twitter they had ended their five-year relationship. Now we learn that she has also closed her school for young autistic children, Teach2Talk Academy, due to disagreements with the school’s co-founder, Dr. Sarah Scheflen. Why?

“Jenny and her partner at the Academy, Sarah Scheflen, had different visions for the school and made a decision to go their separate ways. Both intend to continue on in this important mission. Sarah and Jenny really enjoyed their time working at the Academy and feel honored that they were able to provide such high quality early intervention services to so many children with autism and other developmental disabilities,” Jenny’s rep told yesterday.

McCarthy founded the school after her sonEvan, now 7, was diagnosed with autism when he was two years old.
