This program will address financial planning for your child with special needs, from childhood through the transition to adulthood and then beyond the time you are able to care for them.
Topics will include:
• Timeline / roadmap of transition points and services
• Guardianship issues and considerations
• How to maximize --and preserve-- eligibility for government benefits
• What happens when your child comes out of his/her education plan
• Vocational residential options
The presentation will last one hour, with the rest of the time for Q&A.
