The new Wolf+Friends app offers features for parents to interact with peers raising special needs children, certified pediatric therapists and other experts to help them make informed decisions about their children’s education, health, wellness and future.
The launch of the new Wolf+Friends app, and its unique ability to blend peer support with expert resources, is the result of DotCom Therapy’s recent acquisition of Wolf+Friends, and lays a strong foundation for executing on the promise of the combined companies.
“It’s critically important for parents – especially those with children of special needs – to have a support structure that includes direct access to evidence-based resources and recommendations. There’s too much misinformation in the world, and as a therapist myself, I’ve seen the detrimental impact it can have,” said Rachel Mack Robinson, president and founder of DotCom Therapy. “Wolf+Friends already has a long track record of fostering a successful and vibrant community, and with DCT’s expert clinical support, and the launch of this new app, I know we can make it even stronger.”
The new Wolf+Friends app enables families facing similar life journeys to find and interact with each other. Features of the app allow members to communicate, ask questions, share advice, join small groups, participate in challenges and discussions, and join monthly community social events.
Families can also use the app to access expert resources including a monthly support group facilitated by a mental health professional, “Ask the Expert” sessions where families can submit questions and receive answers directly from specialized clinical experts, on-demand workshops, original articles and podcast episodes, and product guides curated by experts. These resources will provide families information on a wide range of parenting and developmental topics such as behavior, feeding/nutrition, mental wellness, speech and language development, executive functioning, special education processes, motor development, and more.
To accompany the new app launch, Wolf+Friends is taking over production of DotCom Therapy’s podcast, Helping Kids Thrive. The podcast provides expert insight into child development, special education, mental wellness, parenting, and more to help children thrive. Wolf+Friends leadership will enable podcast episodes to be even more intertwined with the needs of parents in its community.
