Special needs dating uk who is esther anderson dating
So she and two friends set up a new dating website with a dedicated section for parents of youngsters with special needs.
Ms Stooks, who launched the website last week, said: "I, as a single mother, was fed up of that initial thing of explaining to anyone I met on other dating sites that I had a special needs child.
"No one has ever been derogatory but they say 'It must be hard' or 'It must be tough' and you don't hear from them again.
"It's very demoralising." Doctors told Ms Stooks her son's severe autism meant she should enrol him in residential care - but instead she decided to sign him up to the £60,000 Son Rise programme in America to help treat the condition.
Jane Stooks, 43, of Clifton, near Bicester, said potential partners were scared off when she revealed her nine-year-old son George had severe autism.
Ms Stooks, who divorced George's father three years ago, said being a single parent could be difficult under any circumstances, but was made extra tough for those with children needing extra care.
