The Challenge

Parents of children with disabilities or special needs do not receive the resources they are entitled to.

Why?

The ‘system’ is a mess, families are lucky if they find out information by accident and often it’s too many years down the line.

Their challenges are less likely to be recognised by service providers, decision-makers and the general public. Or viewed as a priority.

The lack of early disability detection, gaps in the provision of services and inadequate participation in communities. 

Whilst the former two are rather the product of underdeveloped system of state infrastructure and the lack of awareness, the latter are either created by the disabilities themselves or parental fears of stigma.

The Problem

Sadly, children with special needs appear especially vulnerable to social discrimination and stigma. Their challenges are less likely to be recognised by service providers, decision-makers and the general public. 

And although it is not visibly palpable in the UK, a massive share of their rights is being marginalised since they still suffer from the lack of early disability detection, gaps in the provision of services and inadequate participation in communities. 

Whilst the former two are rather the product of underdeveloped system of state infrastructure and the lack of awareness, the latter are either created by the disabilities themselves or parental fears of stigma. The problems of social involvement appear to be  the material obstacles for the development of learning capabilities and social skills. 

The Solution

Such a situation might appear quite grim, but we believe that a neat approach allows families to avoid these problems. 

On our forum and directory you will find answers to your most prominent questions as how to approach the process of parenthood with the full realisation of child’s capabilities in a caring environment, which doctors and organisations to approach and how to get the resources you need.

How it all started

Sam Tebb, Founder

“Having worked in disability rehabilitation for over a decade, I have witnessed how difficult, if not impossible it is for parents with special needs to get the information, advice and support they need. Navigating the mind field of being a parent for a child with special needs is harder than it needs to be. 

I want to create an online community platform which pulls together simplified information and resources. Parents can create a timeline for their child which will be pre-populated with relevant content, to-dos, obstacles to avoid and more.”
