Sister Creates App to Help Brother with Special Needs Connect with Friends

The new norms caused by the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns are changing the ways we as a society interact.

When Juliana Fetherman noticed her 22-year-old brother with autism and ADHD had been feeling lonely due to his lack of friends, she created an app to help him connect with others.

Fetherman’s brother, Michael, struggles to make friends due to his health challenges. In response, Featherman created the app called “Making Authentic Friendships,” which works to connect people over age 13 with special needs so they can make friends based on age, diagnosis, interest and geographic location.

Fetherman hopes that her app will not just help her brother, but also help families with loved ones with special needs.
