We started a monthly email focused on children with special needs in Chicago


In 2008, we created a brand new magazine called Chicago Special Parent with this goal in mind: To bring children with special needs and families together and to put the best resources in parents' hands. The response has been overwhelming and heartwarming. And when we are out and about, the most common comment we hear is that you want and need more information than a twice-a-year magazine can provide. Moms and dads tell us they want it monthly.

In July, in addition to Chicago Special Parent, we unveiled a new monthly email devoted to special needs, highlighting events, resources and tips to help parents on this journey.

We welcome your suggestions on what you think families want to read.

Thank you, as always, for your support.
