Autism Round-up

April is National Autism Awareness Month, so I thought it would be great to share some articles that fellow bloggers have written about various autism subjects. You don’t need to be a parent of a child on the autism spectrum to get something out of these articles. Some are written specifically for people without autistic children. They’re to inform and give you some insight into why parents do what they do and explain why some things you do, aren’t necessarily helpful.

Most of the articles are from parents with an autistic child who want to help other parents. They know the heartaches, the joys, the big accomplishments, and the struggles you went through. Even though not everyone’s situation is the same, you can relate. There are some great tips on everything from traveling with autistic children, decorating for the holidays with them, and even date night tips for parents. This month is not just about raising awareness, it’s about educating, as well. Whether you have a child on the spectrum or not, there’s a lot you can learn about autism and the lives it affects within these articles.
