Special Needs Planning I recently had the opportunity to participate in a podcast with Dr. Daniel Crosby who is an author and writer for The NY Times and Wallstreet Journal. Families of children with special needs have financial and personal realities that many people are unaware of. I hope this gives insight to the financial considerations for those who have someone they love with special needs. "Do you or someone you know have a special needs child or family member? Protecting their quality of life, for the rest of their life, is something you can plan for. Please watch the video."Special needs workshop available by request. https://specialneedsanswers.com/Special Needs Article on our philosophy of planning as featured in ForbesLetter of Intent for your FamilyForget Me Not Brochure/special needs planning brochureCaretaking and Career with a Special Needs Child Able Act Pamphlet -Understanding the 'Achieving a Better Life Experience' (ABLE) ActOther helpful Links:Abledata - The National Institute on Disability and RehabilitationAutism Society of AmericaBrian Rubin Law Family Village - Global Community for families with members who have disabilitiesThe Exceptional Parent MagazineIRSC - Internet Resources for Special ChildrenLearning Opportunities for Individuals with Special ChallengesNICHCY Basic Tips for Parents: Your Child's EvaluationNICHCY Disability Condition Fact SheetsNICHCY- Parenting a Child with Special NeedsNICHCY Resources for Adults with DisabilitiesPlanning for Your Special Needs ChildSpecial OlympicsS.I.B.S. - Supporting Illinois Brothers and Sisters - Support for siblings of people with disabilitiesThe Arc of the United StatesOptions & Advocacy for McHenry CountyDay One PactWisconsin Yellow Pages for KidsSpecial Needs Alliance Wrights LawHook Law CenterSpecial Needs Plannerswww.irsc.orgNational Alliance on Mental Illnesswww.nichcy.org/pub/newsdig/nd20txt.htmLinks to other sites are for your convenience in locating related information and services.
