"Diagnosed at the age of 2 with autism, Britney Landers said she remembers the feeling of isolation early on, not knowing where to turn for support or where to seek advice and information."

Reference: TD, 4/30/2021, page A5

So, does this actually mean what it says? Was Brittany, the mother, also autistic, or is this just one more case of a misplaced modifier literally saying something other than what the reporter intended?
