Welcome to The Dad Blog

Thanks for stopping by to check out my little corner of the world. Let me welcome you to The Autism Dad blog (formerly Lost and Tired). The purpose of this blog is to provide insight into the life of a single Dad raising three totally awesome boys with Autism and various other special physical/emotional needs.

I provide support to the Autism community, both publicly and privately. 

My mission is to show others of similar circumstance that they are not alone, while at the same time, educating the rest of the world as to what Autism families can experience on a daily basis.

I do all of this out of a true desire to make a difference and set a positive example for my kids. 

Should you desire to learn more about my situation without reading through hundreds of posts, simply click here….

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. 

Everyone here is treated with respect, regardless of sometimes having differing opinions.

    Great work bringing awareness to the specific challenges your family faces.

  • J Todd McKay

    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. 🙂

  • Spike Gold

    NeuroTribes by Steven Silberman really opened up my eyes thinking about . 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!

  • Jared Tanner

    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.

  • Jimmy Tankersley

    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.

    • Congratulations. Emmett has randomly selected you as the winner of the Halo: Master Chief Collection… Please send an email via the contact link at the top of this page and I’ll get you the code….

    I had a friend who was autistic back when I was in elementary , 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.

  • Light Bread ™

    I just watched a couple of your youtube videos. Bless you and your sons mister.

  • 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
