Kim Stagliano      

Award-Winning Autism Advocate; Mother of Three Autistic Daughters

Kim Stagliano is a nationally recognized autism advocate and speaker and the author of All That I Can Handle, her “Kimoir” of raising three – yes, three – daughters with autism. Although autism typically affects boys, Stagliano is in the unique position of having three daughters with full-blown autism, which has made her and her family the focus of national media attention. She is managing editor of, the nation’s first daily web newspaper about the autism epidemic. She writes for The Huffington Post, is on the editorial staff of The Autism File magazine, and is a feature writer for Spectrum Magazine. She speaks at national autism conferences and has appeared on Good Morning America, ABC News, Fox News, and blogs around the world, as well as in the Chicago Tribune and The National Catholic Register. Stagiliano is the ideal keynote speaker for universities and colleges with education programs, speech therapy programs and/or autism programs, parenting conferences, women’s groups, health freedom exhibitions, disability and bullying events, and at motivational conferences.

“Dr. Spock? Check. Penelope Ann Leach (Remember her?) Check. What to Expect When You’re Expecting? Check. I had a seven hundred dollar Bellini crib for God’s sake! Everything was perfect…”

. . .and so begins Stagliano’s electrifying and hilarious memoir of her family’s journey raising three daughters with autism. Whether she’s going commando to rescue a daughter from a potentially embarrassing situation or accidentally stealing electric fans, she and her family are seemingly always on the edge of a “Stagtastrophe”. From her love of Howard Stern to her increasing activism in the autism community and exhaustive search for treatments that will help her daughters, she explores her life with vigor and humor. Always outspoken, often touching, and sometimes heartbreaking, she is a powerful new voice in the world of autism, for mothers of every stripe, and in comedic writing.

A former sales and marketing executive, Stagliano lives in Connecticut with her family.
