Special Needs Resources

There are so many fantastic resources out there for special needs parents and I want to share some of my favourites with you here.
I’ve scoured the internet and have come up with a range of resources on the following topics:

  • Albinism
  • Education
  • Autism Blogs
  • Low Vision
  • Disability
  • Special Needs Parenting
  • Autism
  • Disability Advocacy

The inclusion of any site on these pages does not represent a direct endorsement from myself. I also cannot vouch for all the content included on these sites as the internet is a fluid beast and information is changed and updated constantly.
However, these sites provide a great starting point for your own information gathering exercises and I have found a lot of help and information over the years from many of the sites listed.
Click on one of the images below to access links to blogs, articles, websites and resources on a range of special needs parenting topics.

Here are some posts that I have written for special needs parents – I will add more here as I write them.
