Top 30 Autism Spectrum Blogs of 2013

As autism diagnoses keep increasing, so too do the number of blogs about autism. Self-advocates, parents with autism who have kids with autism, and non-autistic parents all bring their own viewpoints, and all need to be heard. Babble's 2013 Top 30 Autism Blogs brings you voices from a range of viewpoints: some familiar, some fresh. We're excited that this year's picks include several blogs that are new to our list, including Asperkids, Stimeyland, Just a Lil Blog, The Third Glance, and The Domestic Goddess.

We're also thrilled that this year our panel included blogger, advocate, and force of nature Rachel Kenyon. Rachel, who was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome as an adult, has been instrumental in obtaining better insurance coverage for military families with autism. Besides being a writer and advocate, she's an Army wife and the mom of two great kids, including a little girl with autism and 4q Deletion Syndrome.

It's not easy to narrow down such a rich, diverse field to 30 blogs, and we realize there may be some great blogs that didn't make the list. However, what we have brought you are some of the best and brightest bloggers on the subject of autism. Take a look, and let us know in the comments if we've missed any of your favorites by nominating them in the comments section for consideration on next year's list! — Joslyn Gray

Top 30 Autism Spectrum Blogs of 2013

Blogger Sunday Stilwell strikes the perfect balance of humor, positivity, and brutal honesty. She writes openly about the challenges of parenting two boys who are both on the severe end of the spectrum: the exhaustion, the guilt, the inability to be in all places at all times. But she also writes of the joy her sons bring: “I cannot imagine the world without my boys and their unique ability to see, hear, touch, and feel all the things I miss and take for granted. They teach me patience. They teach me compassion. Most of all, they teach me faith.”
