When I recently found myself laughing and having fun with my two children in the family room, I couldn't help but get a little emotional. You see, this isn't the norm for me. I have two boys, one year apart, but my youngest is non-verbal and has autism. Finding common ground for them has never been easy, and for a split second, I had a major parenting win.

It's been two years since we first received my son's autism diagnosis. We've come a long way as a family, but have so much more to learn. I'm not going to pretend to have all the answers, but I do have a few tips that have really saved my sanity. Whether you follow one or all of these hacks, just remember you're not alone. We're all in this together.
