Welcome to Autism Blues

Hi there. I’m the father of six amazing kids. Of these six, four—and maybe five—are on the autism spectrum. (I know, right?)

I’ve called this blog Autism Blues not because we are a depressed family–we’re not. Rather, the title refers to the blue puzzle piece that is the logo for the advocacy group Autism Speaks. Mind you, there are days when blue would be an apt description of the mood around the house. But that’s not our default color.

I hope that through this blog I can shine a light on what it’s like both to live in a large family and to have autism as a major part of all of our lives. I hope that my stories, musings, and observations paint a picture of the fun we have together and the challenges we face.

Please note that this is a work in progress. If you don’t like what you see, stick around for a while. I promise it’ll get better as I learn what I’m doing!
