Amazing Company Helping Families, Specialists, Teachers and Individuals with Special Needs(August 02, 2011)
Jericho, NY (PRWEB) August 02, 2011
The statistics are staggering. Nearly 13% (9.8 million) of children under the age of 21are diagnosed with a developmental disability, including autism, cerebral palsy, speech/language disorder and down syndrome. Those diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) alone top 730,000 in the United States! As the numbers of those diagnosed steadily rise, the focus over the past decade has been on determining a cause and reversing the tide. What do we know to be true about disabilities and what is mere speculation? How can we help families, educators, specialists and those with special needs learn, share and develop a true sense of community support?
Bignity is the premier forum for science, opinion, and standards of excellence in special education and therapeutic practice; welcoming parents, teachers, therapists, specialists, and individuals with special needs. The site provides a comprehensive source of information and news. Bignity is in the process of building speech and language apps for the iPhone and iPad. A comprehensive apps review section will be coming soon to enable parents and educators to learn about the best apps for their children. In addition, Bignity is establishing a social networking component for individuals to create their own blogs, seek jobs and assistance, ask questions and join the discussion surrounding special needs.
Jaime Openden, founder of Bignity Ventures, is no stranger to the challenges that impact all people in the special needs world. As a speech-language pathologist, she has spent the past 8 years helping children, teens, adults and families. Inspired by the children, families and her brilliant colleagues at the prestigious McCarton School in New York City, Jaime has developed what she hopes will be part of the growing movement of effective solutions to the present challenges.
