Who We Are

ManyBabies NYC is a family resource organization for parents and caregivers to individuals with special needs.

About Us


Executive Director - Schaneick Thomas


"I knew I was not the only one trying to navigate through the special education process. Although my sons condition was not acute, it still deserved to be addressed with urgency! I wanted to help other parents learn how to advocate for their child's rights and services in schools empowered with confidence and purpose."  


Schaneick founded ManyBabies NYC in 2015.  As a parent of twin sons who were diagnosed with Autism and Speech & Language Delay, Schaneick wants to provide a peer-to-peer resource to families who struggle to understand their children’s diagnosis.


Core Values


Parents continued involvement in their child’s learning and social development throughout their entire academic career. 


Accept that your children face a unique circumstance presenting challenges not common to most families.


Gain knowledge that encourages parents to advocate for affordable resources that provides proper education and experienced professionals trained to assist their children with basic life skills.
