If you’re like me, setting up playdates for your child with special needs is a challenge. Like most parents of special needs kids, I feel pretty isolated at times. But tonight, I learned about a free new resource called Special Playdate that has the potential to change all of that. Special Playdate connects parents of children with or without special needs seeking playdates. On tonight’s The Coffee Klatch, Marianne referred to Special Playdate as the Match.com for children of special needs, which I thought was both funny and very appropriate.

I signed up tonight and I hope to connect with some parents in my area soon. The more parents who sign up for this service, the more opportunities our children will have to connect socially. There are benefits for us as parents, too — conversation with parents who understand, potential respite opportunities and more. I hope you’ll sign up and spread the word about this awesome service — https://specialplaydate.com
