Estate Planning for Children with Special Needs

This event is for families raising a child who has special needs.  You will learn the fundamentals of estate planning and establishing a special needs trust for your child’s future.  You will also learn about important coming-of-age issues to consider when your child becomes a legal adult at age 18 and transitions out of special education at age 22.

Professionals who work with children and young adults with special needs are also welcome to attend.
