Children with special needs may find it difficult to connect with just the right friend. As a parent, you want them to have the experience of interacting with a peer who shares their interests and meets them at their level. That can’t always happen just by chance.
One mom has taken matters into her own hands and developed a peer matching service for special needs children and teens. A new resource on the website One Place for Special Needs, all it takes is for you to register on the site and then click the link to add your child to the program. Once you fill out your information, you can send notes through the secure mail system to other parents and choose whether or not to respond to those who send notes to you.
You can do a keyword search to specify exactly what you are looking for, and you can look for matches for adults with disabilities and siblings as well. To check it out and to sign up, go here.
One Place for Special Needs bills itself as a one-stop location for any number of special needs resources; check out the rest of the website for other information on raising children with special needs.
