New Website created by Mothers for Parents of Children on the Spectrum “Autism: In Our Own Words”

Autism Aspergers Sensory ProcessingI am in awe of this amazing commitment by this inspiring group of five mothers who are reaching out to help and assist families with children on the spectrum. I have many words to describe these women; real, honest, big hearts, funny, encouraging  and genuine and I am very happy to say and honoured to have met in real life over the last year, through the blogging community.

Each of them lives and breathes their motherhood journey with a child and some with more than one child on the spectrum. Having a diagnosed child in today’s society which has great advances in many areas of life, yet they are still overlooked, under funded and we continue to try an educate all children the same. This is not  working and with more diagnosed cases, the red tape, the loop holes and the  little help available is not all forthcoming. YOU have to fight all the way and these women have been fighting for their children for a long time. They have learnt, researched and I’m sure cried many tears in finding out what they can do for their child on the spectrum. Join them on their journey it may make your journey a little easier knowing these mothers are here to support you. They will vent with you, cry with you and always be there with a hug and a kind word.

Meet The Mothers behind “Autism : In Our own Words”

A brief bio on the wonderful mothers, I am confident  you will be able to relate to what they say and what they have to offer. The website launches on April 28th 2012 and their Facebook Page is up and running head over and Like for their updates, tips and their daily stories.

Kate blogs at Kate Says Stuff, a space where she writes about family life with four children and a Supertrucker husband. Autism: In Our Own Words came about as a direct result of the care and support she received from the Australian blogosphere during that challenging time, and the hope that other families might find the same support, ideas and reassurance as she did. You can also find Kate on Twitter and Facebook.

Renee blogs at About a Bugg; a place where she shares her life and lessons learned raising her amazing, beautiful daughter Poss who has Aspergers. When she’s not blogging or attending therapy appointments, Renee works in corporate and digital communications, is married to a very patient and adoring man and is trying to finish her degree. She can almost always be found on Twitter.

Suz blogs about her family’s autism adventure at The I Love You Song and about other dreams, reality and inspiration at Segovia. She loves baking and running in equal measure. Suz is so very excited to be a contributor to Autism: In Our Own Words and to have the opportunity to further connect with parents in the autism community. You can find her on Twitter.

 Marita blogs at Stuff With Thing about life, the universe and autism. Mother of two kids on the autism spectrum, she wishes she could afford to keep her hair pink all the time. You can catch her on Twitter and Facebook as well.

Twitchy is currently a SAHM, seeing her youngest settle into school and loving helping out the class with morning reading. In a previous life she was paid to be a PA to bigwigs, later working with words and pictures in the advertising and marketing industry. You can find Twitchy at the Twitchy Corner as well as Facebook and Twitter.

“Autism: In Our Own Words” 

There  are so many endless possibilities in assisting children on the spectrum and  I believe that these mothers are a powerful source joining their voices together and sharing what they experience, why they have learnt and more importantly how they feel and how their children feel.

I hope to be part of their new journey and look forward to helping in any way I can.

Well done and giant hugs to you Kate, Renee, Suz, Marita and Twitchy.
