Hi, I’m April – A passionate supporter of autism parenting, animal enthusiast, social media influencer, and blogger. Formerly a health coach specializing in plant-based nutrition.
The Launch of My Autism Parenting Blog
I made the decision to transition away from being a health coach in order to devote my time and energy towards helping other parents and caregivers of children on the autism spectrum. My mission is to provide them with the tools and resources they need to take care of themselves and prevent burnout. I hope to inspire and encourage parents and caregivers to make their own well-being a priority.
As a parent of a child on the autism spectrum, I understand the overwhelming feeling of navigating this journey. That’s why I decided to support other parents and caregivers by sharing my personal experience, helpful recipes, and resources, as well as providing them with tools to generate their own income so that they can focus on being caregivers without financial stress.
I know that raising a child can be challenging, but being an autism parent feels like an endless overtime shift. When my child was diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum and nonverbal, I felt lost and overwhelmed. I had no idea where to begin and everything seemed so daunting. Navigating appointments for therapies and interventions added to the feeling of being constantly in over my head.
Raising a nonverbal child with autism has completely transformed my perspective on life. I live in the present moment, rather than constantly worrying about the future. Autism is a spectrum disorder that impacts how a person behaves, learns, and communicates. My son has the most severe level of autism, which means he requires a lot of extra support. He needs speech and behavioral therapy multiple times a week as well as constant care. Most nights it’s hard to get sleep, especially if his sleep schedule gets off track.
Being an autism parent and caregiver is a rollercoaster ride of emotions, with good days and bad days. Through my own experiences, I have learned just how overwhelming and stressful it can be, which is why I have made it my mission to help and support those who are just beginning this journey through my autism parenting blog, social platforms, and more.
I don’t only offer resources for autism parenting. I also offer services on the side such as product reviews, helping brands with their social media strategies, auditing their platforms, designing websites, and creating content. I enjoy assisting brands in increasing their online visibility and connecting with their target audience. If you need any assistance with your brand or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out, my inbox is always open.
