Getting Started

You’re here. I’m here. I’m guessing you searched for “autism blog” or something like it. Welcome!

First off, you can check out our “about” page to gain more information on the Youngquist family. Secondly, come back often to see what we have in store. I have a lot of information packed into over a decade parenting a child on the autism spectrum, and little by little, I plan to share with you our amazing adventure.

One hope I have with this blog is that all of it will be of some value to other families in a similar situation. The value, however, will likely come in different forms. It’s not going to be at all clinical. It will be real world issues being hashed out by a real world family, trying real world solutions, and offering help to other real world parents. We’re not doctors, psychologists, dietitians, behavior specialists, or pediatricians. We’re actually building contractors. We have learned most of this stuff through trial and error, and continue to make mistakes. We want to be as transparent as possible with no fluff – just real life. There will be laughter and tears as we put our journey on display.

We hope you enjoy.
