Why do you need a VitalGuide?

Why do you need a VitalGuide?

Raising a child with special needs can be overwhelming. Online information and strong opinions from support groups, friends, and family members can make things even more confusing and frustrating. You want to make the right decisions for your child, feel reassured as a parent and help them reach their full potential.

Finally there's a solution - Your personal VitalGuide.

We know that every family is unique and needs different types of resources and support at different times. That is why Vitalxchange has created a platform that matches each parent with highly experienced parent mentors or professionals for various aspects of special needs parenting, based on their needs.

An important question - Why are VitalGuide services not free?

The money you spend on our platform creates new income opportunities for our VitalGuides, many of whom are moms and caregivers themselves.   Unlike free programs where there are huge waiting lists and unreliable support, our VitalGuides are committed to you and will ensure that your family gets the personalized support you deserve.
