Special X co-founder Jason Lehmbeck understands the joys and challenges of raising a child with disabilities because he’s living it with his son Noah.

Jason and his wife realized the need for better support early on. The complexities of care options, health insurance benefits, providers, and educational choices came as an overwhelming, unexpected shock. Navigating these systems alone means time away from your child, and can also mean missing out on critical opportunities and resources.

It takes more than a village. It takes a supportive team of professionals who understand what you need and want to help you find it. 

That’s why we created Special X.

Special X connects you with guidance, expertise, and other families like yours so you can be confident you’re doing everything you can for your child.

We combine an easy-to-use app with the power of people — leading educators and clinicians, experienced Care Navigators, and a supportive community of parents — to get things done. By sharing our knowledge and experiences, we can support each other and our larger community, and drive better results for every child.
