"To have a child in this predicament is extremely sad," he told People shortly after his son was diagnosed in 1985. "It's almost like a radio station -- he fades on and off of the signal."
Sly said he found his own way to bond and communicate with his son. “You can't force him into your world. I sort of go along with whatever he is doing," he said. "Sometimes he likes to draw -- mostly abstract things -- and he has puzzles that we work on together. After he gets to the point where he trusts you, a little more communication can start. The primary therapy is the repetition of words and instructions. He has shown an extraordinary memory, but he can't apply what he has learned."
Seargeoh is now 31 years old. Sly protects him from the media. The actor has since divorced Seargeoh’s mother, Sasha Czack, with whom he has another son, Sage. He is now married to Jennifer Flavin and the couple have three daughters, pictured above.
