Amazing Dad Who Has a Son with Autism Starts Blog Called "Autism Daddy"

By Kerry Magro

This guest Q&A is with Frank Campagna aka "Autism Daddy" who is the father to a 13 year old son with classic autism & epilepsy. He has been riding the special needs roller-coaster for over 11 years now and has been writing about his experiences and has become a social media sensation with his blog and Facebook page. His claim to fame is giving people a realistic, non sugar coated look at the world inside an autism household; the good, the bad, the pee, and the poop.
