Special X is your trusted partner in raising your child with a disability. With care navigation services, curated resources, and access to a network of both experts and families like yours, you can be confident you’re doing everything you can to help your kid live their best life.
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.
Professional Navigators + Care Planning
What sets us apart? It’s our Care Navigators! Through regular Boost Calls and by connecting you with the experts and resources your family needs, our parent professionals help you stay accountable to your shared Action Plan. Plus, our personalized CareHub app makes it easy to keep all of your child’s information in a single, secure place that you can access — and share — from anywhere.
Curated Resources, Tools + Expertise
Collective knowledge begins when you bring your experience to the table alongside leading professionals in the disability field. Our Knowledge Base features dynamic content from highly respected clinicians, therapists, educators, and advocates on the topics that matter most. Here, you’ll find the answers you need through an easily searchable database of articles, FAQs, how-tos, and more.
