How Does Autism Affect my Child?

Her entire life is impacted by something people can barely see and some days she can put on a good show, and others she fails at pretending to be typical.

My Hardest Truth as a Working Autism Mom

If you are a working parent to typical children, please try to understand what this is like before you complain about our kids or judge us. Imagine that your child’s after school program was shut down as of tomorrow and your school district won’t bus them anywhere else other than your home.

That is what it feels like to be an autism working mom. Like a revolving door that just keeps swinging and you can’t keep up.
