Anyone familiar with Autism has likely heard of Autism Daddy. However, up until today very few people know who was behind this great blog.
Launched in 2011, Autism Daddy quickly rose to the top of reading lists in the autism community from Autism Daddy’s humor, honesty and family perspective.
The boy (commonly referred to as The King) and his Mom (Wifey) and his Dad (Autism Daddy) have added so much joy and knowledge to the community.
Only 4 years in, the blog has amassed over 4 Million views, 120,000 Facebook Followers and who knows how many laughs, smiles and tears around the world.

And in case you are wondering about the people in his journey. According to Frank’s website:
“Wifey will still be wifey… The king will still be the king or his majesty. You still probably won’t see their faces. And I’ll still be Autism Daddy or AD even though now you know that I’m Frank who works at Sesame Street.”
Kudos to you Frank. You continue to make the world a better place every day.
