When Being Mom or Dad Stops Being Good Enough
- “But I’m his mother…” While your child’s school, doctors and other service providers are communicating with you now, when your child turns 18, they might not. Learn about the legal options to protect your decision making authority and the family estate planning that is necessary when you have a child with special needs. We’ll take the mystery out of what a guardianship or guardian advocacy really means, what might be less restrictive alternatives, including supportive decision making, along with the pros and cons of each and the associated costs. When we’re done, you’ll have the tools to make an informed choice to assist your loved one with decision making in the future.
Planning for a Loved One with Special Needs
