I’m so glad you’ve landed here at Mum Talks Autism!

It’s not easy living with Autism, is it? I can let you know now I do understand.  All three of my lads are autistic, and along with the great joy they bring me, it’s true to say there are many challenges too.

Mum Talks Autism, is a place for you …whether you be a parent, carer or educator … to come and find support, information and resources to assist you in dealing with the autism in your world.

There is no magic cure for autism, but there is great strength in supporting one another and lightening each other’s load.

As the site grows, you’ll find links to support services, autism-friendly products and places as well as other information and guidance from someone who truly understands and is on a similar journey.

Thanks for joining me and I hope you get in touch.

you’re never alone

Just a day at a time....

Just a day at a time.... Yesterday I had one of the most productive days I have had in months. I was proud of myself as silly as that may sound. I travelled the 180 kilometer round trip to the big town over from me where i [more]

Making time for what really matters.

I have been away a lot lately as is obvious by my lack of posting. My life has been so full on that I would not even know where to begin. I have taken these last few weeks as I have spent treasured time [more]

I will get there.

To say that I have been on an emotional roller coaster the last few weeks is the understatement of the century. Most of what I am going through is a walk in the park compared to what the people I hold [more]

In order to save my fingers from a lot of typing … and your eyes from even further reading, here’s more of my story as I presented to a room full of bloggers at the Digital Parents Conference in 2013. Such an emotional moment to share my journey with many of my blogging colleagues and it certainly gave me much enthusiasm for building the Mum Talks Autism community.

I’m so glad to have you part of it …
