Blog Roll

Here are some great blogs I follow.  If you would like me to add your blog, please comment below or email me at

To be considered, I ask only the following:

1.  That you regularly post and update your blog.

2.  That it is related to autism and/or special needs.

3.  That you have made an effort.  Meaning, please take some time to add content to your pages and description.  It really shouldn’t say, “Just another blog.”    :)

Special thanks to “E” at The Third Glance for her kindness in reformatting my messy blogroll into Excel – a marvelous program that I hate.

    Hi there. I am going to add a link to your blog on mine. Hope that’s okay. Our six-year-old son was recently diagnosed with generalized epilepsy. I am finding, reading your words, though specifically about autism, solid connections. The stigma surrounding epilepsy is, sadly, alive and well; and we are doing our best here and on the blog to dispel some of the mystique. I wish you well. –Samantha

    Hi Leigh,

    My husband I have enjoyed checking out your blog. You have some wonderful insights. We have five children and two of them are severely on the spectrum. We started our blog recently, and would love to be added to your list. We do our best to post at least twice weekly. Can’t wait to add Flappiness Is to our list of blogs we read.

    Thanks again,
    Christen Verroi

    Could I be added to your blogroll as well? My blog is My son hasn’t been diagnosed with Autism, but he does have SPD as well as global developmental delays. Love your blog BTW!

    Leigh-I enjoy your blog. I shared your blog and the link to your site on a recent entry. It’s the one about the letter to the shopper. You summed my thoughts perfectly. I find that a sense of humor goes a long way on our journey. Have recently started a blog about my son who keeps us laughing. Those around us have come to appreciate his sense of humor, too, and look forward to his Facebook status updates. 😀

    Meet our boy, Shane.

    I’d love to join your blogroll :)
    Also, if you want to organize them by alphabetical order (or put names of blogs next to them, etc) you can copy/paste that list into excel, and then sort that way – works like a charm. :)

      You just cracked me up. Because you are just like ME. lol The lack of organization to my blog roll makes me nuts too. We school librarians tend to be a little OCD about some things. But – for the life of me! – I can’t seem to get around to taking the time to do this. In retrospect, I should have had the foresight to do that from the beginning. Yet, I loathe Excel. Okay, I’m going to apply myself to your suggestion. Soon. LOL :)

          You are my missing twin. LOL If I know how to do something techie and the other person doesn’t, I just grab it and do it anyway. Tell you what. I’m hosting a lock-in tonight and will have endless hours to tinker on the computers in the wee hours of the torturous night. If I can’t figure it out, I’ll take you up on it!

            Check your email – I was playing around last night (and avoiding doing my work) so I created a potential blogroll for you from what is currently there. Use it if you want. If you don’t, no hard feelings, I was just curious to make sure that what I’d suggested to you to do would be straightforward and easy to actually do. :) Someone is a techie nerd (and enjoys it)

    My blog, that I began two years ago, with my husband (who occasionally posts as well) is about autism and our daughter Emma. Being incredibly OCDish I post Monday through Friday unless there is some sort of unexpected crisis. In other words I rarely miss a weekday. I am enjoying reading your blog, just found it!

    I love your blog and have been following since December. You are such a great writer & express yourself beautifully. I’m a fan! My son, Jake, has a speech disorder called apraxia and I’ve been blogging about our journey since December of 2011. One day a week I journal our progress/digression and the other day I write on an activity that has helped his speech improve. Visit

    Thanks so much for including my blog, I’m attempting to compile my own blog roll. Just one teensy thing, could I be @AutismMumma on the first bit, blog title still remains as bluecrisps. Thank you :) Jeannette

    I love you blog, and have been following it since we started our ASD journey back in April. I have recently started a blog of my own and wold love it if you could add it to your blog roll. It is still a work in progress, but I’m getting there :)

  10. onelostmama

    I just wanted to thank you so much for your blog. When we first started this whole journey with Liam your blog was one of the first I found and I think I read all of your posts in one day…but not in a creepy stalker way…I was just so lost and confused. I am slowly ramping up my own blog so I can get my thoughts out of my brain and somewhere hopefully constructive.

    I would appreciate if mine could be added as well:

    I don’t necessarily post on a set schedule, but I *do* try to post at least once a week (and admittedly fail sometimes). Have just started blogging as of January.

    I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind adding us? I write about my son’s diagnosis and our lives now with ASD in the mix over at I love the blog! Your post about “If you were cured tomorrow,” made me cry. I’m actually using it as a discussion point for a post. (with a link to your post, of course!!) Thanks again!

  13. Lisa

    I’ve added you to my “Good Reads” section on my blog a while ago. Am starting to update more regularly again so am wondering if you might include my blog on your blogroll. I love reading about you & Callum – thanks for all your honesty in your posts – you have a tremendous gift with your writing.

  14. Joanna

    My spouse and I stumbled over here by a different web page and thought I might
    check things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look forward to going over your web page again.

    I found your article on What to Expect and, after reading it, decided to share the link on my blog. I, too, am a mom who blogs about my family. My son has autism and my husband MS.

    Hi, we are new agency called Autism Family Center dedicated to helping individuals and families live with autism.

    We write blog posts about twice a week and would love your feedback. We would also very much appreciate being added to your blogroll.

    We just want to let people know that we are out there and here to help.

    Thank you!

    If you could add my blog to your blogroll that would be wonderful. It’s (I’ve read all of yours and really like it and I find it very interesting!)

    Dear Leigh,

    I would love to be added to your blog roll. I am relatively new to this blogging world. My husband and I started out the blog two months ago after I decided to go on part time so that I can help my child out more with his developmental and learning needs. I am a married teacher as well with a four and a half child with autism and perhaps hyperlexia. Thank you for your blog. I am learning a lot from you as well as the others you have on your blog roll. I hope to be a positive addition to many out there as well. Together, we can go far.
