Guardianship and Decision Making for Parents of Children with Autism
Featuring special education and disability expert attorneys from the law firm of Hinkle, Fingles & Prior.
Wed. January 28th 7:00–9:00 PM
Geared for parents and future guardians, this workshop will describe the nuts and bolts of planning for legal guardianship and protected decision making for parents of children with autism ages 14-21, and will provide an overview of important considerations for every family. Issues will include the transfer of decision-making authority at the age of 18, the need for careful estate planning, the role of a Special Needs Trust, guardianship and other issues. A question and answer session with the attorneys will follow the presentation.
Registered guests will be given the opportunity to reserve one of six FREE 20-minute consultations with an attorney on the topic of beginning the guardianship process, which will be held concurrently during the course of the workshop on both nights. If you are interested in booking one of the private consultations, please indicate your preference when completing the online registration process below. Free private consultations are reserved on a first-come-first-served basis and are limited to two adult parents/guardians per session. After you register for a ticket to the workshop, a Y.A.L.E.
