Welcome to AspieMama!

Hello and welcome to the AspieMama blog! My husband and I are expecting our first child in February (a boy!), and this blog will describe my experiences as a parent who has Asperger’s Syndrome. I also hope to share useful information for other Aspie and Autistic parents. I think that parents on the spectrum have unique needs as parents, possibly including some questions that I have: “How do I play with my child?,” “What will I talk about with my child?” and “How will I make myself get off of the computer?” :) (just kidding!). I hope this blog will be a useful place to share information and provide support to other parents, as well as feature some entertaining stories.

While the blog will describe challenges that I’ve had due to Asperger’s, it will also be a positive and hopeful place. I think that Asperger’s can be a gift, and I would not change it if I could. Welcome again, and thanks so much for visiting!
