Readers' Choice: Favorite Special-Needs Online Community

Meet the 2013 Finalists

By

The five finalists for Favorite Special-Needs Online Community for the About.com Readers' Choice Awards gather their members together on Facebook or on their own specialized websites. They deal with specific issues like hydranencephaly and Down syndrome, or the common issues of military families, moms, and supporters of inclusion. These communities offer parents the opportunity to come together anytime, day or night, to strategize, share, and support one another.
