eSpecial Needs was started in 2002 in St. Louis, Missouri. Resources for children with special needs were difficult to find and parents more often had to rely on school districts to supply them with therapeutic devices, which could be used at home.

Owner and president of eSpecial Needs, Scott, experienced this first hand when his son was diagnosed with autism in 1999 due to significant delays in language. Scott has become an expert in the industry through working with hundreds of special needs organizations, families, and individuals.

Our mission is to make life easier for parents, more enriching for children, and more enjoyable for the entire family. This blog is a resource to the community where we will feature awesome teachers, kids, parents, events and of course products.
