Proudly Supporting all Military Families with a Special Needs Dependent
We’ve joined the club – the Geek Club, that is!
Geek Club books is dedicated to helping children with differences discover “how awesome [they] are.” More than a website, Geek Club is an experience. Founded by the mother of a son with Asperger’s, Geek Club Books provides resources to celebrate the differences in our children, and ourselves. Storybook apps with a very special super hero, parent pages for support, free Dorktale audio story downloads, self-affirmation, crafty goodness and a peek into the work behind the scenes in app development – this site has a little something for everyone.
And, now, there is a special eBook of autism resources, called Project Heart Touch. Project Heart Touch “is a compilation of several heartwarming Facebook pages–profiles submitted directly by their community leaders. Here, you will find passionate and compassionate communities who will lift you up and carry you through your autism and special needs journeys.”
I am so very proud to announce that Military Special Needs Network is listed among the many wonderful organizations included in this free eBook. I remember when our sons were diagnosed. I remember leaving the hospital campus thinking, “Now what?” They gave us a label, a reason, and a list of websites and books. But I had no clue. I had no idea what I was supposed to do next. He has an autism diagnosis, I thought. Shouldn’t I tell someone about this? Do I call his pediatrician? Who helps kids with autism? Who is going to help me? Military Special Needs Network is here to help. And so is Geek Club Books, and the other wonderful resources listed in this eBook.
