I’ve been a bit absent from my blog, but for good reason! In my free time I’ve been working on a new project – a Q&A site for the special needs community – Nilsby.com.
I’m the oldest of four, and my youngest brother has prader-willi syndrome. I’ve seen the struggles that a family goes through to provide a child their best possible life when that child has special needs. There is an innumerable amount of information about education, healthcare, trusts, government subsidies, summer camp…and the list goes on! Interestingly, parents have become the experts and many times they are the best place to find the answers to questions another family is dealing with. And so, just like programmers can share knowledge on Stackoverflow, families with special needs children can now share information on nilsby.com!
We just got the site up and running recently thanks to the guys at rootbuzz.com. Check it out, spread the word, and let me know what you think: firstname.lastname@example.org.
