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 ->

If you’re looking for advertising options on The Autism Dad blog, please visit my Press page for more information or click the contact me button to shoot me a message. I’m also open to family-friendly sponsored content and reviews.

I’d love to hear from you guys.

Feel free to jump in and get to know us and be sure to check out my podcast. đŸ˜‰
