This website is designed to help families in the St. Louis area and beyond find resources and support in parenting children with developmental disabilities. Many of the resources found here, including information on iPad apps, equipment, toy ideas and accessibility, can help parents outside of the St. Louis area. However, the service providers, sports, events and activities listed will be local.

STLSpecialNeeds.com is maintained by a mom. I’m not a therapist or doctor (and I don’t even play one on TV) so any equipment or AAC/AT resources provided here are just for information sake, not as a recommendation for your specific child. Always consult with your doctor or therapists to determine what might work best for your child.


Check back often as we will continue to add new resources and information. The idea for this website arose out of the desire to have a central hub for all of the events and information that comes our way. As we learn about new services and resources, we will pass those along to you.
