Special Playdate was founded in 2010 on one simple premise: that every child deserves a friend. As a special education teacher working in New York City’s public schools, Jane Reddig saw first-hand the challenges that many of her students and their parents faced when trying to establish friendships. Her goal was to create a safe and easy way for families and others to connect online. The result was Special Playdate.
This is a place where parents can connect with other parents seeking playdate opportunities for their children with or without special needs. Special Playdate is dedicated to find playdate matches for its members in their local communities. It also strives to offer more to this community, such as playdate ideas, resources, services, and more! Let Special Playdate be that first step towards creating a lasting friendship for your child.
