SPECIAL NEEDS AWARENESS
A Little Xtra started off as an online support group of parents that needed support with raising a special needs child. What started as a simple Facebook group back in June 2010, evolved into a blog, a following and many others looking for the same kind of support. Since time is so crucial for any special needs caregiver, the online network worked rather well. In June 2013, the "A Little Xtra" podcast started. A podcast all about the special needs community and their supporters sharing personal stories, experiences, frustrations, advice and recommendations. The goal of the podcast is to share as many testimonials of different people all around the world living with special needs and to help spread awareness as well as educate the audience. Another important factor was making it easily available for all at any time. The podcast is completely FREE to listen to on any computer that has internet, iOS and Android market.
A Little Xtra strives to improve the lives of people with special needs & their families through advocacy, education, raising awareness & promoting social inclusion. We hope to be able to network online as a community by expressing our experience, advice, questions & concerns. This is for anyone who wants to be apart of it. You do not need to have any type of disability to participate.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." ~Margaret Meade
