BBC Scotland reports that a website for parents of children with special needs proves a hit.
A couple who set up an internet support community for fellow parents of children with special needs hope it can become a charity due to its success.
Debbi Robertson and partner Graham Brockie, of Portlethen, Aberdeenshire, set up Extra Special Parents two years ago after daughter Willow was born. Willow had a rare congenital condition and they felt “upset and isolated”. Now the growing website has hundreds of members across the world who can discuss special needs of any kind.
