What is Twitterpated?

Welcome to Typically Twitterpated. I am so happy you are here!

My name is Caitlin Goodwin, and I am a Certified Nurse-Midwife, writer, and mother of four children (one with autism).  My son with autism inspired this journey.  As a family who loves going on adventures together, many told us that traveling with a son with autism would prove difficult.  When you add a gluten-free diet, it seems impossible.  

The mission at Typically Twitterpated is that just because you have unique needs does not mean that you can’t travel.  This blog shares our journey with all things: Travel, Autism, Disney, and Gluten-free.

Twitterpated is a term coined by Walt Disney Studios’ Bambi in 1942 to explain the animals becoming smitten with a love interest.

Owl: Nearly everybody gets twitterpated in the springtime. For example: You’re walking along, minding your own business. You’re looking neither to the left, nor to the right, when all of a sudden you run smack into a pretty face.
