Blog Giveaway: The Special Needs Store!

Do you ever feel like you are all alone in the world of special needs?
Like no one really understands what you are living with?

I am sure you are not surprised that I Google...a lot!
And on one of my googling expeditions, I came across this site:
The Special Needs Store: Where No Child Flies Solo.

The title itself grabbed me and drew me in.


As I wandered through the site, I was amazed at the amount of resources that were available to me and my own childrens' needs.

And this, my friends, is website owner Kelly and her family!

Kelly's son was born in 2003 and was diagnosed with Down's Syndrome.
And as Kelly states on her website, " a parent to a child with special needs, I understand the difficulties faced, not only with medical issues, but in providing your child with the tools that he/she needs to live life to the fullest. There is so much to learn about your child and the need to learn is an on-going process as he/she moves from one developmental stage to another. Many of our kids are in therapy, but we also know that we need to make our homes as educationally "rich" as possible. The search for products can be frustrating. You have an idea of what you are trying to achieve, but no name for what you are looking for. How do you find it? There are a lot of great products and services out there, but many times we spend frustrating amounts of time searching until we either stumble across it or hear about it from a someone else."

Isn't she great?

What I love most about her site is the ease of navigation.

You can go to THE STORE and select from the a list of categories from the left column.

Or, you can go to THE MALL: an amazing resource to help connect you with many other organizations, both local and national, which provide products and services for children with special needs.
What Mom (um, or Dad?) out there doesn't like to go to a mall?

And thanks to Kelly and her love of helping other parents with children with special needs, she is offering ONE WINNER a........
