Why the name ‘Big Apple Oranges’? Well, Big Apple refers to New York City and this guide is for families with special needs children in the 5 boroughs (although the laws and regulations are state-wide). The orange, like the apple, is a delicious, nutritious, healthy fruit – only different than the ‘big’ apple. So are our children – sentient, loving, unique individuals – only different.
(Big Apple Oranges is NOT an agency, company, or business entity. It IS a resource for families of children with special needs. This resource directs YOU to find out the information to help your child.)
We are a family owned business based near Tonbridge in Kent.
