Resources

I’m sharing resources I’ve used along my journey as an autism parent. I know full well how it can feel to receive the diagnosis for your child and think “so now what?”. And then spend endless hours searching for support and answers online.

Here are some sites that are good to have in your library, whether you’ve been researching autism for years or are just beginning to ask questions. I’ll be adding to this list from time to time, so if you want to be kept in the loop, join my Facebook group, where I’ll be posting updates. Also, if there’s something you found valuable and would like to see added to this list, get in touch.

Podcasts

I’m developing a series of conversations with fellow autism parents and professionals about everything from keeping your connection with your partner strong whilst supporting an autistic child, social and emotion management tips, supporting employees who have autistic children and everything in between. If you’d like to be a guest on the podcast or know someone you think would be great to interview, let me know.

If you’d like me to be a guest on your podcast, please contact me.
