“Just thought I’d tell other parents out there that Vest is a very worthwhile thing to get into. It’s what I’ve been waiting for–a way to keep track of many important details and be able to update it and share it, all the while still being in control of the information. Try it–it’s unbelievably inexpensive too!”
“Vest is like my security blanket. It has given me a sense of accomplishment, knowing that I am preparing for my future and I have some control. I can certainly see myself using this for the rest of my life. I feel that everyone who has special care needs and have a communication disability should have a Vest!”

SpecialVest was built without any venture capital or “angel” funding – we are a home-grown company created and funded entirely by Susan and Michael Pearce, “by our own bootstraps” :)
Our founder, Michael Pearce, is a special needs attorney who has helped
thousands of parents plan for their family's future. Witnessing their daily
stress and turmoil over making lasting plans for their child's lifetime care
and protection, Michael understood that special needs parents needed
much more than legal documents to accomplish their goals.
Special needs parents needed help in getting through the day, the week, and life with special needs. Most of all, parents needed a real and practical way to let others know what to do for their child's continuing care and protection after they were gone.
Over the years, through those hundreds of meetings with parents, the idea of a SpecialVest was born - jotted down on a yellow post-it note that Michael kept on his computer monitor, beckoning daily for attention. That post-it note was sparked into reality upon Michael's recognition that cloud technology held the key to helping parents and people living with disabilities navigate life with special needs.
Committed to helping special needs parents lessen their burdens, and
firmly believing that SpecialVest was the solution, Michael created and
launched SpecialVest - the world's first cloud app designed exclusively to
help parents and people living with disabilities navigate life with special
The response and support of our growing SpecialVest community has been absolutely amazing!
