Down Syndrome on Pinterest

So… Are you on Pinterest yet?

If you haven’t heard the buzz yet Pinterest is a pinboard-styled social photo sharing website. The service allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections. The site’s mission statement is to “connect everyone in the world through the ‘things’ they find interesting.”

The Growth of Pinterest has been amazing. Pinterest was started just over two years ago and currently has over 11 million visits a week!

While mainly known as a visual hot spot for design, home decor, fashion and recipes, Pinterest has a number of “pinners” that pin special needs related items and activities.

Today we bring you 15 great special needs non-profits, bloggers, and therapists active on Pinterest.  Do you have more to share? Tell us in the comments. Happy Pinning!
