There are days when parents badly need speedy information about special needs, those when they have to know a little more about "standards" such as allergies or the common cold, and those when both are priorities.

Whether the mystery is about disabilities, treatments, medications, infant formula, or wheelchairs, trusted information is always a challenge. Where do you go?

Parents and professionals now have access to both general and specific pediatric information, whether special needs or not, all under one cyber-roof.
