Alicia Trautwein, creator of The Mom Kind, is an Autism advocate, writer, motivational speaker, and dedicated mom of four. Alicia’s desire to advocate for Autism comes from her own autism diagnosis and that of her three children, niece, and brother. Her life’s mission is to educate on autism acceptance and change the world for future generations of autistic individuals.
#ad When our children were first diagnosed with autism, I felt lost. While there was information available online about boys with autism, there was very little about girls or having multiple autistic children. I wanted to know what it was like to parent autistic children and how I could improve as a parent. When I realized that the information wasn't there, I started sharing our journey. In my hope to help at least one parent going through a similar journey, I became an autism resource for parents and caregivers worldwide. I went on to receive an autism diagnosis during this time and shared what the process was like in hopes of helping others. What I found through this was a massive community of parents, primarily women, receiving late-life autism diagnoses after their children received an autism diagnosis. #AD I created The Mom Kind, an autism parenting website and later a nonprofit to help parents of autistic children find the resources and support they need. Sharing my story and knowledge through The Mom Kind, social media, television shows, and podcasts, I have helped make a substantial impact on our community. All of this was accomplished by just me being myself. We often hit roadblocks in our lives and find that we are the only ones that can make a difference. However, we fear that our impact will be small, just one person. We have to start with one little step to make a huge impact. When people have ideas that matter, we can change the world – one person at a time. @SoFabLife & I want to challenge you to make a difference through Ideas That Matter – The Power of One to help make a difference in your community. All significant changes in this world start with one person, and that one person in your community is you. #InmarIdeasthatMatter

#sponsored With all the doctor appointments, school recitals, and daily activities, we have to have snacks to keep the kiddos going (hungry = cranky). But finding ones everyone likes is tough! I can happily say we found a better-for-you snack that EVERYONE loves! Walker really likes the birthday cake flavor, while Lilly likes the s’mores more, but they both like both! What’s so cute is each snack package has its own character with its own bio! You can meet all the zeezees at www.zeezees.com/meetthezeezees Not only are the tasty & cute, they are made in a nut-free facility and perfect for families on the go! You can get @zeezeesfoods in-store or online at your local Dollar General. Use the link in my bio @TheMomKind to find them near you! #ZZatDollarGeneral
Happy Valentine's Day!! My favorite part of Valentine's day isn't a fancy dinner, candy, or flowers. It's the memories of all the little Valentine's cards the kids have made me over the years. Seeing their excitement of giving to others something they worked so hard on to create is such a blessing!
A huge part of my journey has been unmasking so that I can reach my three autistic children how to be there authentic selves. My goal has always been to help them grow up into happy adults that live fulfilling lives, doing what they love, and surrounded by those they love. Learning more about my own autism diagnosis has been crucial to this goal. Through our journey with autism, we’ve had tons of ups and downs. We’ve made mistakes and triumphs, but always have had love. When I started sharing our story, it was because I didn’t want another family to feel alone. Whether it be because they are parenting multiple autistic children or one, or parenting as an autistic adult, we wanted to share our journey to help others. Because of this decision, we have met so many amazing and beautiful people! While there have been many things I could say I wanted to see come from this experience, there are ver few things I could have predicted. The one thing I definitely never thought I would say is this: I have my own tv segment/show. While I couldn’t predict it, I can now say that thanks to the WIN WIN Women Network! I will be live every Wednesday at 11 AM CST on the website & on our channel that can be seen on major streaming platforms like Roku & Amazon Prime. As shows are edited for playback, you will also be able to go back and watch previous episodes too! I am so excited to start this new chapter, and even more excited to share it with you. Every Wednesday after the first 30 minutes airs, I’ll be live on the website platform to talk directly with you through zoom. There you can ask questions or share your thoughts about the episode. So I hope you can join me tomorrow. The links in my bio, and you can also download the WIN WIN Women network via Roku or Amazon (phone or tv) or head over to WinWinWomen.tv (I’ll be on channel 2). Can’t wait to see you there!

🧹 Lilly definitely made me laugh with this one 😂 She set up my Gremlin with a witches broom (pen), & completed the look with one fake eyelash as a Mohawk 🤣 I love how sweet my kiddos are. Today I finally came down with Covid after caring for Walker through his infection. I figured it would happen since even when he is sick, he still needs a ton of physical contact for both his sensory needs and anxiety. The good thing is that it seems the vaccine really helped reduce the symptoms. I hadn’t gotten the booster yet, so I was already a little more susceptible than the girls, but this is definitely less than what Walker had. Mainly a just sore throat. But I am a big baby when it comes to that 😂 I hope everything is staying well and always working on some form of self care. I know how hard it is to take care of ourselves when we have kiddos with higher support needs. My goal for the last month or so has been to get all the kids to bed early enough that I can either read for 30 minutes or take a 30 minute bath. Most nights I’ve done good, but I fully admit there were nights that either the kids went to bed later or I just passed out right after they went to bed lol. What are your ways of sneaking in some self care? Let me know in the comments so we can bounce ideas off each other ❤️
Oh this crazy boy! Walker is feeling much better today. He is pretty much symptom free other than the occasional cough. We are very thankful he is not sick anymore. He had a rough time the first few days, but was more than happy to live off popsicles those few days 😊 Let me know how you and yours are doing in the comments!
Walker is getting to watch tv & eat popsicles in Momma’s bed tonight! We wound up heading to the doctor today & confirmed that Walker has Covid. He feels pretty yucky today, but I am getting some good smiles today! We found a new show on @netflix called action pack and it is so cute! I love that it has already shown some great calming techniques and social skills, and we’re only two episodes in! #autism #covid #momlife #tvtime
Happy 14th Birthday Lilly Bean! It’s hard to believe that it’s already been 14 years since she was born! From the start, she has always been our goofy, artsy, creative, spirited little one and it’s been so amazing to watch her grow into person she is now. This last year was tough on her, but she has overcome it amazingly to realize and become even more of her true self. I am so very proud of you Bean! #trueself #happybirthday #birthday #autismacceptance #autistickids
