Hello! My name is Marlon Espiritu. The founder of ACEplay4specialneeds.org. I’d like to welcome you especially if you’re a dad to a special needs child. My hope is you will find whatever support you or your child needs on this site, and if not, hopefully we have something that can steer you in the right direction.

As for me, I have a 7 year old son who is autistic and non-verbal at the moment. I say “at the moment” because you can call it high hopes or false hopes if you want, but I’m holding out for the day when my son can finally talk again. As his father, I hope to be the best model dad I can be by actively engaging and/or supporting him in his therapy sessions. I have the utmost respect for all dads with special needs kid(s) because I know what it’s like and I can certainly attest to the struggles any dad can encounter when dealing with their child’s needs. Listen! …my goal is to make ACEplay4specialneeds.org to be as much pro-dad as possible. I hope all dads out there that need support or suggestions, will consider this site as their one-stop information source. Considering we’re only in the beginning stages, I am very much excited about the potential of what this site can offer. In a nutshell, this site is for All dads… By a dad!
