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 ->

It can be hard to not drown in all the negativity

I’ve been feeling a little overwhelmed this week. Elliott is having sleep problems and he’s in full on stubborn teenage mode. That means I can’t get a great deal of cooperation from him in regards to getting his sleep cycle reset. He’s stressed out and probably a bit depressed. I think that’s completely understandable but …

The SideTrak Slide is the second display I didn’t know I needed (REVIEW)

I’ve been a work from home Dad for the better part of a decade. Lately, most of my work is centered around the blog and the podcast. As I’ve mentioned many times before, I write almost exclusively from my mobile device and only use my laptop for recording and producing my podcast. It’s this angle …

Are you the health advocate your child needs you to be?

Parenthood is tough at the best of times. Add underlying health conditions to that struggle, and doing the best for your kids can seem like an insurmountable mountain. While they’re the ones who have to deal with sometimes painful conditions, up to a certain age and perhaps even past then, you need to be in …
