Our daughter was diagnosed with Autism when she was 3 years old. Since then, we have been learning (and are still learning) about Autism and how we can be the best Autism Parents that we possibly can be. However, it is hard for both my daughter and for us. So, I will be sharing things that we learn, advice that I wish people had given us and more about being an Autism Parent. On top of this, you'll be able to find lists of resources and advice that we have found useful as first-time Autism Parents.
