Stories by and about people on the autism spectrum who have a different way of learning, communicating and processing the world around them.


The Mocha Autism Network is an organization motivated by love and fueled by our beautiful children on the Autism Spectrum. What we found was that there was not much information about Autism circulatiingwithin Communities of Color. Currently, Black/Latino children are diagnosed as many as 2 year later than other children.


Our goal is to help the millions of parents whose children, ages 3–20, are struggling with learning and attention issues. We want to empower them to understand their children’s issues and relate to their experiences. With this knowledge, parents can make effective choices that propel their children from simply coping to truly thriving.
