Hey! I’m Tiff, a fellow autism mom.

I laugh, cry, feel, think, make mistakes, drink coffee, and love little people with autism. I know how hard you strive every day to make you children’s lives the very best. And I also know how hard it is to receive the news that your child has autism. My passion is to help other moms struggling with the daily questions and needs for their kiddos on the spectrum. This blog was created to make your life a bit easier, by answering questions and providing resources in one place. Spectrum Sense For Moms with help you make sense of your child’s diagnosis, and ease you into the transitions that are to come. If none of your mom friends get it, know that I do!

An autism diagnosis isn’t the end of the world – it’s the beginning a new one.
