Why Mom Autism Money?
The world of personal finance media largely ignores disabled individuals and their families. Traditional and most FIRE approaches to financial planning and retirement just don’t take into account the complex financial ramifications of ableism. As financially savvy mothers of Autistic children, we want to help change that for our children and our communities.
Our mission is to grow wealth and families by educating parents of kids on the spectrum. We do so through interviews with industry and community experts and asking them your questions. When you listen to the Mom Autism Money podcast, we hope you’ll gain insights that help you create a financial plan that fits you and your family.
