Welcome to The Autism Dad Blog

You may have arrived here expecting to find Lost and Tired. No worries because you’re in the right place. The Autism Dad Blog is the continuing story of the Lost and Tired family (minus one).

This site is dedicated to creating discussion, talking honestly about special needs parenting, providing one on one support to those who reach out for help, providing the community with a positive example and doing everything possible to make sure everyone knows that they are not alone.

If you need anything and feel I can help, even if you just need someone to talk to, never hesitate to contact me

Please make yourself at home and enjoy your stay. Please don’t forget to join the My Autism Help Forums. I built them myself and it’s full of people who understand and want to help. 

I welcome and even encourage your feedback. I think that discussion is a great way to help raise awareness. :-)

    I have really been enjoying all of the recent candid photos of you and the boys, just enjoying life. Really nice to see all the smiles, even though this life isn’t perfect for you all, those moments make it all worth it and will be great to look back on one day. :-)

    NeuroTribes by Steven Silberman really opened up my eyes thinking about autism. Knowing what I know now it makes me appreciate your work –and that of everyone else– spreading awareness about autism even more. Keep it up!

    PS: Thanks for the chance!

    This is my first time visiting your website, I read one of your blog posts and it was sad to hear that your wife doesn’t spend much time with your children. They seem like great kids judging by the photos. :)
    If my mother walked out on our family when I was a child, I would be heartbroken.
    Anyways, Keep up the good work on the website, sharing stories and spreading awareness.

    Amazing job, I always look forward to reading your next post. Keep posting and educating. As a father of 2 autistic boys, the info and subjects you talk about truly touch home.

    I had a friend who was autistic back when I was in elementary school, he used to get bullied a lot in school a lot by the other kids and I never understood why. We were friends up until high school then we sort of drifted apart, but we would usually chat for a bit during breaks. I remember he would tell me stories from long ago back when we were kids. Things that I completely forgot about.

    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or
    something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d
    post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you
    get the issue resolved soon. Kudos
