Back in June, Ben opened up about his family life in a way he never has before.

He revealed the struggle he went through as he and his wife Emma came to terms with their son Kye’s autism diagnosis, and the terrible events that pushed them to seek help.

While Ben's story is incredibly emotional and heartbreaking, thankfully it isn't a tragedy, but one of healing and learning. Which is why he wanted to raise awareness on the importance of early intervention and diagnosis.
