The Autism Dad Blog

Welcome to The Autism Dad blog. This blog is all about my life as a single Dad raising my three amazing autistic kids. I’m honest, transparent, and very open about the struggles we face as a family.

My message is one of hope, understanding, education, and perseverance. No matter what life throws our way, we always find a way through it.

This Autism Dad blog dates back to 2010 when I wrote what I thought was a private post.

Turns out it wasn’t.

It also turns out that people all over the world find comfort in reading about my journey as a father and a human being. I’m far from perfect but I never give up and I don’t hide from my mistakes. I figure I’m not learning or living life if I’m not making mistakes. My hope is that my readers can learn from my mistakes along the way and perhaps avoid some of the bigger ones.

My family has been through a lot and life isn’t easy but we are survivors. We never leave anyone behind and despite the challenges, we love the life we have.

I love connecting with my readers, followers, and listeners. All my social links are at the top of the page, and I can usually be found on Twitter, where my DM’s are open. Please feel free to shoot me an email by clicking the contact button over there ->

The boys are still sleeping and Gavin’s IVIG Infusion is going. The only noise I hear at the moment is the filter in the aquarium because the tank needs water added. It sounds like a water fall but not the calm, relaxing kind. It’s super annoying and I will dump some water in when I’m …

This isn’t supposed to happen

It’s Gavin’s 21st birthday and we were off to a good start. His IVIG Infusion supplies showed up and he immediately went to work. Whenever he gets his supplies, I’ve taught him to put together kits containing everything he needs for each infusion. This serves a dual purpose. It helps him to learn how to …

Today didn’t go as planned

As with everything else in my life, today didn’t go as planned. We were going to celebrate day two of Gavin’s birthday and we did but with a some changes. We decided not to bake a cake today because Lizze is dropping one off on Monday. Instead, Emmett baked his cookies and we watched a …

A fun little update

It’s been an interesting weekend thus far. The boys came home yesterday from a visit with their Mom. They all had a great time and I’m so glad we were able to get this safely worked out. There was some transition challenges but it’s a small price to pay for everyone to get a chance …
