did you see 7yo Schizophrenic on Oprah? doesn't it look like Autism?

Did anyone else happen to see the 7yo on Oprah who was diagnosed with Schizophrenia?

to me it looked like Autism plus too many meds, what do you think? My daughter (8) has lots of 'friends' too, but I attribute most of it to imagination and the fact that she is still working on her speech. Plus I'm pretty sure I've seen this family on other shows as well. Hope they're not just pulling a 'balloon boy' for the attention. what do you think?

Didn't see the show but i know that in the dark ages one of the most common misdiagnoses for autism was childhood schizophrenia.
