Everybody knows somebody who takes care of a loved one with special needs -- whether it be a grandchild, a child or a friend. In today's complex society, it is important that you have the lay of the changing legal landscape so you can better plan for the complexities of life associated with these unique challenges. We know how hard it can be to take care of a loved one with special needs and we want to be there to help guide families along the way.
Beth Blecker hosted a two part question and answer Zoom call on September 15th and 16th with guest speaker Robert Pitkofsky, from Pitkofsky PLLC.
Part 1 Zoom call on September 15th:
School Age Planning for Younger Special Needs Children and Grandchildren: Things to Think about
This call provided a brief overview of resources in the educational/organization context, how to be an advocate for your special needs child and other topics to think about.
Part 2 Zoom call on September 16th:
Transition Planning for Middle/High Schoolers & Young Adults with Special Needs: Some Things to Think about
This call covered the transitioning period (what you should do when your child turns 18 and is now considered an adult) and went over what documents you need for caregiver's end of life (estate/wills/trusts).
We hope that you enjoyed these calls and will also pass along this information to anyone you think may find them useful, as the more people we can reach and help, the better.
