Potomac native launches unique special education website

Kate Branson, a Potomac native and special education teacher in the Maryland area for seven years, has launched a website aimed at providing much needed resources for special needs families.  “Mamie Grace” is the only referral directory of its kind, dedicated to connecting special needs families with qualified service providers available to assist them with their needs.  Parents and educators can find profiles and monitored reviews for schools, specialists and camps that focus on the special needs community.

The company has been named in honor of Mamie Grace who was born with Down syndrome.  “Only on this earth for two and a half months, Mamie Grace taught us how to know joy, hardship, forgiveness, strength, understanding, and most of all love.  We are determined to use her contagious spirit as a guide for helping the many families and educators that live or work with special needs persons,” states co-founder Kate Branson.  Mamie Grace was the daughter of former WJLA-TV Consumer Reporter Elizabeth Manresa.

With the numbers of special needs children drastically increasing, the team of Mamie Grace felt it was important to provide information and resources for all disabilities in one convenient location.  In doing this, valuable time has been returned to the parents and educators.
