Tom is an EMT, a professional photographer, and the father of three boys, the oldest of whom has Asperger Syndrome.
Babble’s list includes blogs by parents of young children on the spectrum, parents of teens and adults on the spectrum, and most importantly, by writers who are on the autism spectrum themselves.
One such blog is the beautifully written From Inside The Heart, by 16-year-old Miranda. She’s not an extremely frequent poster, but when she posts, she gives me an insight into my own daughter’s mind that is invaluable.
More terrific blogs by writers on the spectrum include Aspie from Maine; Dude, I’m an Aspie; and Amy’s Tiny Corner of Existence. ThAutcast, a blogazine for the autism and Asperger community by Landon Bryce, who has an autism spectrum disorder, also made Babble’s list. ThAutcast is a great resource for the latest news and views within the autism community.
I was thrilled to be on the panel to help Babble choose the Top 30 Autism Blogs. The other panelists were writers Greg Olear and Jeni Decker. We and the Babble editors each contributed to the list of nominations, and read every single blog we considered.
There are a lot of great blogs out there, and certainly this list doesn’t capture them all. But we hope it gives other parents a place to start. Somewhere in this list we’re sure you’ll find a blog that speaks to you. For the full list, click here.
If you know of a great blog that we missed, please let us know by nominating it as a Reader’s Favorite.
