Where is the printed version of Autism Parenting Magazine?

Autism Parenting Magazine started as a digital publication running on the Apple Newsstand platform for iOS ( iPhone / iPad editions) and subsequently got released in Android smartphone and PDF formats.

This platform has always been popular with the vast majority of readers who are able to carry the magazine and all its back issues with them wherever they go accessing them on their iPhone or tablet. In fact, we were awarded the Gold Award from the Mom’s Choice Awards because of the high quality of our publication.

Using a digital platform has enabled us to accomplish things not possible with a traditional magazine, such as embedding educational and step-by-step videos. We have also started embedding videos and webinars from Dr Frank Gaskill and the extraordinary team at Southeast Psych, which has been very popular with readers. For convenience, our links and references are clickable within our digital version and we also have the benefit of being able to distribute the magazine directly to our subscribers the moment it is released while keeping a low subscription rate.

In response to requests for the paper version, we did an experiment using Amazon’s print-on-demand service a while back. Unfortunately, we didn’t receive an adequate response from readers and we weren’t able to cover the cost of producing the magazine in paper format.

The sad truth is that we live in a digital era where everything is becoming delivered electronically.

Unfortunately, just as VHS tapes and records are a thing of the past, print media is soon to follow. Many publishing companies are going out of business because circulation has declined as the cost of producing paper copies has become too high. In fact, more than 50% of books are now sold in eBook format on Amazon.

Because of this, it is not possible for us to sustain a paper version of our magazine while still providing the same value to our families through our magazine, website and social media channels. Please remember, if you prefer a paper version, you are very welcome to print out the magazine and read it offline.

For anyone who signs up for an annual subscription through our website, we offer magazine access on your smartphone or tablet device.

Thanks in advance for understanding.

My daughter and I both would prefer a printed version it’s disappointing that this is not offered. It is not always convenient to get on your phone to read things and not always a possibility to print things out.

        WE sincerely apologize that we do not provide paper copies. As we mentioned above, we did experiment in the past with producing a paper version but we had such a low uptake compared to the digital version that it became too expensive for us to produce. Thanks so much for understanding, Bertha.
        Yes, if ever paper copies become available, we’ll let you know. Take care!

I would be more inclined to read and subscribe if there was paper copy . I do not carry my tablet with me. Have enough to read for work/ school on tablet. In our tiny town don’t always have internet service!

    Sorry to hear, Nancy, that the digital version doesn’t work for you. As we mentioned in our article, we did experiment in the past with producing a paper version but we had such a low uptake compared to the digital version that it became too expensive for us to produce.
    Also, if you purchase our magazine, you’ll have access to our Member’s Dashboard page where you can log in and access your current and past issues. From there, you can read it just like paper copies and zoom in and out for easier reading or download it to your device for offline reading.
    Thanks for understanding, Nancy. Have a great day!

I’d prefer if there was an actual paper magazine, too bad it’s not available.

    We sincerely apologize that our magazines are only available in PDF format via web, iOS devices, and Android devices, and we do not print physical copies. As we mentioned above, we did experiment in the past with producing a paper version but we had such a low uptake compared to the digital version that it became too expensive for us to produce.
