The SpecialNeeds.com website is aimed at providing information to help people understand special needs. There are  pages of information for families and professionals in a variety of formats. There are stories written by parents and discussions with professionals. There are book reviews, information on events and conferences, and podcasts. Topics covered include diagnosis and the state of parents at the time of diagnosis, communication and social interaction, nutrition, and challenges faced by parents in raising children with special needs. This is a valuable resource for families, as it shares experiences of others in similar situations, and for professionals, as it provides information that may be of use in therapeutic practices and classrooms. http://www.specialneeds.com/categories/children-and-parents
