My child's autism diagnosis changed my life.

In 2016 my son was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. My life hasn’t been the same since. Now I’m sharing autism resources for parents in a similar situation.

Wondering if your child may be autistic?

Autism is a complicated diagnosis that can only be given by a specialist. If you’re concerned about your child, here are some of the less obvious autism symptoms that you may want to investigate.

let’s get to know each other

I'm Kathy. Mom of 3, coffee addict + socially anxious extrovert.

My son was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder in 2016. Even though I was surrounded by supportive family and friends, I felt really alone. Hearing stories of other people who had been through a similar experience to mine was really uplifting.

Now my goal is to share my experiences in the hope that it benefits someone else in their journey. To cultivate a community where we can celebrate the joys and successes, but also the fears and challenges of ASD. 

Let’s caffeinate and navigate autism together!

No time to read? no problem.

You’re a busy parent, and you’ve got limited time to sit quietly and read. I get it! I’m with you. Listen to the podcast to get all my tips, resources and advice; while you drive, cook dinner, or fold the laundry.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

I’ve always felt guilty about it because no one ever talks about it.

My husband and I have always worried about not being able to be empty nesters too. I’ve always felt guilty about it because no one ever talks about it. We are also mourning that loss of freedom.
