When I first started researching and learning about autism, I frequently felt overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information available, and I often wished there were a publication with just the basics and must-know information for “beginners” like me.

While embarking on publishing the books that I originally wrote for my grandson, I had the idea to start a magazine also, including basic information most parents, grandparents, or caregivers of children newly diagnosed with autism would look for—and while at it, why not include some inspirational material, too.

I hope that Autism Is…? The Magazine, will not only be helpful to you, but will also be a source of encouragement and inspiration. The autism journey, while always unique, terribly interesting, and sometimes mysterious, can be difficult and stressful at times. I hope my efforts in putting this magazine together will make life easier for you, and provide a little pick-me-up along the way.

Issue #1

This first issue of Autism Is…? The Magazine includes basic information about autism, initial reactions to receiving the diagnosis, the importance of early intervention, information about sensory processing disorder, do-it-yourself tips, and a short list of resources to get you started. – The kind of down-to-earth, practical, and helpful information that you may be looking for and need, and that will hopefully make your autism journey a little easier.
