My grandfathers both used typewriters. It was a big part of who they were. Maybe that’s why I’ve always loved old typewriters. Or maybe it’s just one of those preferences you can’t really explain, like why I prefer chocolate over strawberry ice cream (which my dad happens to love!).
Whatever the case, this is the place to learn about Cynthia J. Patton, award-winning author, speaker, advocate, and attorney. I’m also the founder of Autism A to Z, a nonprofit organization, and the mother of a smart, stubborn, beautiful, somewhat verbal autistic daughter.
It probably goes without saying that I’m juggling a ton of stuff—like every working mother—and doing my best to write in the midst of life’s chaos. This website will celebrate that struggle for balance. So check back often. We’re going to have fun.
