As a parent on the spectrum, I often feel like I'm the only one despite knowing it ain't so.

Anyone else a parent AND autistic?


To quote Hamlet, Act III, Scene III, Line 87: "NO"

I'm ADHD, but my kids consultant thinks I have ASD traits. Both my kids are ADHD and ASD, kinda makes sense as it's genetic.

I'm an autistic parent! My child's 5 now and he's autistic too and it can be hard to manage sometimes with my sensory issues around making his food, calming him down during screaming tantrums and stuff. But I get through it, barely


Non-binary, 22 and sad. AN for 9 years. I'd like to recover but is it really ever gonna happen? Really?
