Our Story

Rebecca Perkins

Me with my wonderful son Lachlan

Hi, my name’s Rebecca Perkins. I’m the founder of My Special Child.

I began My Special Child back in early 2015 as, like many people, I was fed up with the lack of information and support for children with special needs and learning difficulties and their families.

I decided to build a website to provide people anywhere in the world with as much information as possible. So I built myspecialchildonline.com.

Over the past couple of years My Special Child has grown and grown and now has a fantastic following on the Facebook page (www.facebook.com/myspecialchild) as well as a Facebook Support Group (www.facebook.com/groups/myspecialchildgroup)

In January 2017 I started looking at other ways to help people and to get information to them, so I  created the very first My Special Child Conference. This was such a fantastic success and such a wonderful couple of days that I decided to continue with them and I now aim to bring the Conferences to as many people as possible.

I am currently running the Conferences in Victoria, Australia. But will be expanding to other states and then internationally as quickly as possible.

I hope to meet you at one one day 🙂
