Favorite Autism Blogs

I have some great Autism blogs for you to check out and follow if you are not following them already...

Confessions of an Asperger's Mom: This mom has not just one, but two teenage sons with Asperger's. She is striving to help the world to understand her boys and the world they are living in and to stop judging them for it. When I read her posts, I can always identify with her feeling and emotions and so many of the things her boys say and do. She has a great Facebook page that offers lots of support and a place to drop in and sometimes complain when you need to. We all need a place for that, don't we?!!

Red Vines and Wine: Dawn, the mom who writes this blog, has a 4th grader with Asperger's, just like I do. She has a great sense of humor and is proud of her kids. Follow her any way you choose and you won't regret it. The laughs are plentiful!

Four Plus an Angel: This blog offers a little of everything; a mom blog, a blog about a teen with autism, toddlers, fertility issues, pregnancy with triplets, then losing one of those babies as an infant. Like most of us, Jessica has found a voice through blogging and finding an inner peace and strength by sharing what she and her family has been through, telling their stories, so that others can learn. There was an interesting post the other day about autism through her teen daughter's eyes. I found this so interesting because I had just asked my 10 year old son if he could tell me what it was like and he was not able. What a role model this daughter has in her mother. Please stop by and let Jessica know that I sent you!

Autisable: Autisable is actually an online community to connect people affected by Autism. You can sign up for a free account, submit a post, read posts and comment on them, and vote on posts that you like. You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter. It is a great resource for Autism.

I hope that you will check some of these blogs and websites out. These are just a few of my favorites. I will share more of my regulars reads with you as the month goes on. If you have a great Autism blog or website to share, be sure to leave a comment. I would love to add it to my list!

  1. Thank you for sharing these blogs! I think it is great that there are so many resources out there for people with autism. I find the blogs from people with autism so helpful and websites like offer a lot of great information. This has been such a great help because my daughter has autism and it has been really great being able to turn to the internet.
