App Helps Create Authentic Friendships for Autistic Kids

post-image

Founder and CEO of Making Authentic Relationships, Juliana Featherman, created an interactive web application that enables children (ages 13+) and adults with special needs to make friends based on age, diagnosis, interests and geographic location. The app was inspired by her brother Michael who was diagnosed with ADHD and autism and struggled to make friends. MAF is currently serving the special needs community in 30 states, 12 countries and 5 continents.
