A message from Emma Sterland, project co-ordinator: "Netbuddy is unique because it is the only website that shares practical, how-to information about supporting people with special needs and organises it into easy-to-find sections. Plenty of internet forums provide emotional support, but Netbuddy helps in a very real, practical way. It gives parents and people working with special needs a place to find solutions to everyday practical issues, from brushing teeth to coping with challenging behaviour."
