Hello World! Introducing OddDad.

I’m OddDad. At age five, my son was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, specifically Asperger’s Syndrome. He is an energetic, thoughtful, sweet boy with meltdowns that would bring a two-year old to shame. And that’s just the tip of the Autism iceberg that can sink a family without proper health professional support, your own research, and commitment to loving each other regardless.

Through the diagnosis experience with him, my wife and I recognized in me (really it was my wife), corresponding autism symptoms. At age 44, I was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder – Asperger’s Syndrome.

This blog chronicles our family experience with Autism. The blog is part catharsis, part comedy, part tragedy, and, most importantly, intended to be helpful to other Autism families searching for hope in the Autism jungle.

  1. Hi Odd Dad, thank you very much for sharing your story. Never in my life I would have imagined that you are an Aspie. Through your blog I am learning more about it. My memories of you are of a very social person with an amazing heart and mind. I know that you are passionate about the things you care about. Politics, academia, the faith just to name a few. Odd? I never thought so. Take care my friend, take care of that sweeet boy of yours, your beautiful wife and family. God bless you all.
