Shannon Urquiola

Founder of Not Your Average Autism Mom

Shannon shares her lived experiences in hopes of creating a more accepting and inclusive world for our children on the spectrum.  She presents to organizations and businesses both in person and virtually. She is the founder and CEO of the non-profit organization, Not Your Average Autism Mom.

She is mother to two children, now young adults. Her son Jordan is 27 now and was diagnosed with autism when he was five years old.  Her daughter Madison is 24-years old and after graduating as a student-athlete playing collegiate softball Madison began her career in the Athletic Department at her alma mater. 

Shannon is a Master Certified Life and Parent Coach working exclusively with moms raising autistic children.  She provides families and educators resources and information through her weekly podcast, Not Your Average Autism Mom and in their monthly newsletter, Let’s TALK AUTISM.

There are many therapies and services available for children on the spectrum but having traveled this parenting journey for over two decades, Shannon continues to see the need to support their caregivers along the way.  

"I am not a therapist,  I am a Coach and Mentor and those two things are very different.  As a coach, I am trained to help parents see what they can't see.  I help caregivers break through perceived obstacles and limitations to live a happy and fulfilling life in the midst of uncharted territory." 

Prior to starting Not Your Average Autism Mom, she spent over a decade building a Special Education Advocacy company helping families navigate the needs of their children in special education.

She has over three decades of public speaking experience and today she presents to organizations and businesses who want to educate their employees, families, and communities about autism.

Her presentations speak to families who are brand new to the world of autism as well as ones who are well on their way.  She shares in-depth knowledge as well as negates the many misconceptions about autism.  She has been through the process of guardianship in both the States of Florida and Georgia.  She is a forever parent who provides hope and inspiration to what is possible as she continues to navigate this parenting journey day in and day out.  

We believe that if you are willing to expose yourself, your child, and your family to the world with kindness and honesty that compassion and understanding will follow.
