Welcome to Dad Does Autism!
“If you’ve met one child with Autism, you’ve met one child with Autism.”
For some time. I’ve had the idea to write some sort of blog. That’s what has led to the creation of Dad Does Autism. I intend for it to be an outlet for me, to come and share the joy, happiness, pride, frustration, anger, heartbreak and every other possible emotion that comes with family life that has Autism at its core.
So a quick introduction. I am Adam and I live with my partner Natalie. She works her Avon business around looking after our two children Jack and Lily. Both children have been diagnosed with Autism. You can find out more about us on our Introducing the family Page.
I have lots of ideas swirling around in my head. To start with I will write a daily blog of the goings on. The effects things have on family life and give and ask for advice and suggestions on different things. I will share with you different activities that we try. Places that we visit. Which I will then give my opinion on how autism friendly they are. I will give my opinions on things like schooling and services. And anything else that we comes across.
As well as daily updates of what we are doing now, I will also look back at some the major things that have happened in the past, and talk about how things were handled and what strategies were used etc..I’m not a professional, I can only tell you my experience as a parent. But if I can do anything to help a fellow parent, and your children, or just let you know that you are not alone in the life of bringing up autistic children, then that would be great.
We have a section dedicated to Lily’s art work – Lily’s Art Gallery
And a section dedicated to work done or with the help of Jack – Jack’s Documents

This will be a therapeutic exercise for myself. If in the process other people get something out of too. Then that would be great. Something I would also love to do is get other people involved on here, whether that be other parents of autistic children. Autistic adults or people working around autism. I’d like to get as much information from as many different people as possible. I can only speak of my experience, and I still have so much to learn. So if you would like to share your story too, please feel free to get in touch with me at email@example.com
