As the parents of three children with autism we wrote the how-to book we kept looking for but could never find. The first thing you need to know about us is that we’re just like you. Before this started we had no idea what the functions of behavior were. Like you we read all the books. None of the books answered the burning questions that kept us up at night. Learn from our mistakes and our triumphs. Now repeat after us: it is not my fault that my child has autism. Good. Now Let’s get to work. Welcome to our site.

2015 Autism New Year’s Resolutions

Autism parents – what will be your New Year’s Resolution for 2015? Is there such a thing as a “new year” for parent’s of kid’s on the spectrum?  Or are we all locked into a, “survive one more day” mentality where the same 24-hours just repeats itself day-after-countess-day until the delineation of weekday, weekend, month, […]
