We know what it’s like to look for help and not find a resource, so we’ve made this one to help others. In this easy to use, indexed book, our all-autistic family of seven shares our tips on household arrangement, attention and sensory management, emotional boundaries, food, coziness, faith life, friendships, setting expectations, and other wisdom we’ve learned for building a joyful, prosperous autistic life. Our experiences will equip you to ask better questions and build your confidence and knowledge base so that you can continue to discover strategies for thriving that work for you and your family.
