I'm the "Mom Next Door"


Did I mention that my family is featured in Dandelion magazine's Back-to-School issue? It was a fun photo shoot (all photos are by Sara Atkins, who worked so well with my kids..thank you!) Clearly we are big dorks, but Dandelion is a great resource for Bay Area special needs families, I hope you'll check the magazine out


"One of the hardest parts of having a special needs child can be the loneliness and isolation,"
says Jennifer Byde Myers. "If you can't find the community you need, build it."


"I can't live without... my husband. It might sound clich√©, but we really are a great team. And though I'd like to think I can get by without it, a good wi-fi connection and my smart phone make life much easier."

If you told me 10 years ago where I am today, I'd be surprised that... I drove a mini-van. Really? A beige mini-van? With beige interior?

The article says that The Thinking Person's Guide to Autism book is out, but it's not quite there yet, just a couple more months....
