When Raul came to me with the idea of starting PapaHeroes, I said it was a great idea to blog about parenting and how he wanted to help other parents understand the pros and cons of today’s technology. We have created awareness of various negative experiences throughout various posts on PapaHeroes.
Here are a few and the most recent one about iDoser.
There is a positive side to all of the technologies we are faced with as parents, especially for parents with children who have special needs. We came across a blog on Google Plus called Born Just Right written and managed by @JenLeeReeves. Jen’s daughter Jordan was born with a left arm with a full humerus. She is using techonolgy to learn more about how children with special needs can benefit from today’s advances.
Many parents turn to the internet first when they are new parents as we have done for many things. Jen will be bringing technology tools and special needs children and families together at a panel discussion at SXSW. If you will be at #SXSW and are a parent that could benefit from this discussion, definately plan to attend this session.
You can find @BornJustRight on Facebook and Twitter as well.
One of our members and co-founder of the Alliance, Raul, will be attending SXSW and will hopefully catch up with Jen and other parents at this panel.
How do you use technology to benefit your children?
What special needs social tools have you come across that you can share with Jen’s community?
