A note from a parent

After testing showed my daughter was developmentally delayed, I held fast to my friend whose older child has long struggled with learning. She was my community, yet I yearned for a vast safety net to catch my family. 

I asked a special education teacher why there wasn’t such a network in place. Her answer: At first, parents are too busy helping their own kids; then, they age out of helping others. 

Thankfully, a network of sorts is forming online. In the pages that follow we talk with six people who are part of this community. They’re working to make life better for people with special needs including anxiety, ADHD, dyslexia, autism, sensory sensitivities and other neuro-differences.
