+ The Problem
75+ Million parents worldwide are raising children with special needs such as autism, ADHD, mental health issues, learning disabilities, developmental delays, behavioral challenges, and sensory processing disorders.
These families are isolated, overwhelmed—and underserved:
1. The life-changing challenges of raising a child with special needs disconnect them from friends and family.
2. "Typical”/mainstream schools, classes, mommy groups, childcare, family activities, hotels, shops + more don't provide suitable support or options for kids with special needs.
3. Parents require vetted, specialized providers to address the special needs of their children.
4. Special needs children need developmentally appropriate toys, tools, furniture, clothing + more and parents need inspiring + informative shopping options all in one place.
*Given the success of Wolf+Friends beta app and demonstrated traction, we can solve this problem on a much larger scale.
