Autistic Writers Wanted!

Not an Autism Mom is looking for autistic writers!

This is a blog geared toward parents. Many of them have children with different abilities.

Some readers are autism parents. Others have children with complex medical issues. My own children have a complicated medical history, including prematurity, developmental delays, and autism.

For the most part, parents look to other parents for advice. But I want to help facilitate a dialogue between autistics and autism parents.

There is no age restriction! Young-old, it doesn’t matter.

 

What would you like to tell parents?

Here are some sample topics:

  • Why parents should presume competence (with a personal story)
  • A time in your childhood that you didn’t feel heard
  • What you wish your parents did, or didn’t do
  • What therapies or experiences helped (or hurt) you the most
  • A time you proved your doctors wrong
  • A time they thought you weren’t listening
  • A story of triumph
  • A story of heartache

 

Please keep in mind, parents aren’t experts when their children get an autism diagnosis. Most doctors offer very little advice. So, parents go to the internet to seek answers. What do you want these parents to know?

 

If you’re interested in sharing your story with autism parents, please send your article to notanautismmom@gmail.com.

Posts should be 500-1000 words. Please include a head shot and short bio. You may also send a feature picture, or I can choose one for you.

 

A huge thanks to Christiana MacLeod for making the first collaboration a success! You can find her post here.

  1. I’m still trying to find time to write another article for you. We’ve been going through a lot at home with a different school and getting ready for middle school.
