Entrepreneur Adam Goldberg, M.Ed., previewed his new technology, myEdGPS, Wednesday at Tampa’s Cuban Club.
The event, What is Working – A Bipartisan Search for Solutions to the Job Crisis, is being showcased at both the RNC and DNC and is sponsored by The Huffington Post, LinkedIn, Microsoft, NBC and several major foundations.
Goldberg was selected as one of 60 start-up companies from across the country to participate in this exhibition that highlights job creation.
Goldberg’s brainchild is Braintree-based myEdGPS, a first-of-its-kind online platform for parents of the more than 19 million children with autism, ADHD, learning disabilities or other special needs.
Navigating the special education process can be a daunting, frustrating and costly experience for parents who often can’t find the information and resources they need at the time they need them. Parents of special needs children often complain they are stymied by the process of diagnosing, and then planning out the most effective and well-suited educational direction for their child.
"As an education advisor for more than 15 years, I grew frustrated turning away 95% of the calls from people who needed help for their child but couldn't afford it," said Adam Goldberg M.Ed., founder of myEdGPS. "We created this platform, where most of the tools and information are free, for parents who need directions and connections to help their struggling students succeed,” he added.
