Former reality star Kate Gosselin opened up on her decision to send one of her kids away on a learning program.

"Collin has special needs," the former "Kate Plus 8" star told People. "[There's] a fairly fluid diagnosis of what those needs are, but he needs to learn certain strategies to help him deal with things. This has been a struggle we've had for a very long time, and it's one I've dealt with on my own. I've felt very alone in this. By the same token, it's not something that has only impacted me or him – our entire family has been impacted."

The mom of eight kids with ex-husband Jon Gosselin said she misses her son every day.

"We miss him so much, so it's been hard because there is a huge hole in our family without him here."

Gosselin said she is comforted knowing "he's where he needs to be right now."
