About - Autism Mom Diaries

About

I am Liza C-K, WAHM, wife, and mom of a toddler recently diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I have been writing all my life and decided to start this blog to combine my two passions, writing and my son Ethan. I also would like to connect with others who also encounter ASD in their families, share thoughts, experiences and tips and hopefully inspire and help. Being a mom is challenging enough as it is, and to be a special needs mom is a whole different experience with its own unique set of challenges. I have learned that community is extremely important to combat the isolation that an autism diagnosis can bring, and this blog is my way of reaching out. Being an ASD mom has already changed me as a person and made me stronger, and I hope that others find light and encouragement as I share my experiences.
