The Special X Community: Building collective knowledge together

For families raising children with disabilities, the COVID-19 crisis is particularly challenging. This community is here to help and will be free to access through the summer.

Connected families. Real community.

Our Special X family is as diverse as our kids’ strengths, loves, and needs, but our community is a place where we can come together, find commonality, and grow our collective power. Here, you can share your experiences and tips, access curated resources, take part in deeper discussions, and benefit from high-quality content and expertise.

Special X Community members have access to online resources and events:

Q&A with Certified Advocates
