Jean Stimey Winegardner, Autism Mother, Blogger/Author

"Here’s the thing: It matters how you feel about your child’s autism, but it matters far more how he or she feels about it. However you feel, I believe your kid should think that every part of himself is awesome, and as his or her parent, it is your job to make sure that this is the case. There are a lot of things I second guess myself about in terms of my parenting, but this? I know I’m doing this part right (Jean Stimey Winegardner, Stimeyland Blog, 11/18/2013)."

Paula Peters, Autism Mother, Special Education Teacher

"Autism has taught me to not look too far ahead. It has taught me to watch for the obstacles and plan how to defeat them. It has taught me to always look in my rear view mirror. For when you look in that mirror you get a glimpse of how far you have come (Paula Peters, Picture Perfect, Autism Diaries)."
