Problem Statement

Absence of a common platform for parents of special needs children to find information and services for their children

Parents of special needs children have difficulties seeking out reliable information and services to support their children. As society grapples with more children with more children with special needs, a one-stop platform becomes more necessary and more economically sustainable.

Solution

Creation of a one-stop platform for parents of children with special needs

To develop a one-stop platform to provide a transparent listing of public and private early intervention service providers, information and products on developmental needs, so as to facilitate an informed decision making for parents of children with special needs.

The portal will allow an independent review of each provider in accordance with a set of criteria that assess its services. It will also match the needs of the child to the recommended services and provide basic care management capabilities.
