Every few months we turn to our social media community and ask about their personal autism experiences. With Mother’s Day coming up, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to ask, “You know you’re an autism Mom when…” Interacting with our online community gives us the chance to gain new perspectives, since everyone’s experience with autism is different, and spread autism awareness. This Mother’s Day, and everyday, we wanted to extend our appreciation and admiration for all of the mother’s who have a child affected by autism. You are strong, resilient, and truly inspiring!


These are some of our favorite responses we received from our most recent you know you’re an autism mom when posts on Instagram and Twitter. Take a look!


“You Know You’re An Autism Mom When Every morning you have the same routine. To get up before your alarm clock to make breakfast, snacks and prep lunch bc he doesn’t eat school food, wake him up at exactly 6:13am (not a minute more, not a minute less) make sure he uses the bathroom, wash hands, face and brush his teeth, then get dress, eat his bowl of Farina, go down stairs and wait for the school bus.” – @maravelousbaby_76
