From the article: "Diagnosed with autism at the age of 5, Wilhelmina Pride said her son was exceptional, even then.:

This sentence is literally saying that Wilhelmina was diagnosed with autism, a meaning not intended, but nevertheless achieved. A correct rendering:

Wilhelmina Pride said that her son, diagnosed with autism at the age of 5, was exceptional even then.
