Future Planning for Special Needs Children
Tresi Weeks will be presenting three different classes for families with special needs children to help plan for their future. The three topics are:
Guardianship 101 (18 years and up)
“What is Guardianship” and is it required when the child turns 18? What is guardianship appropriate and when is it not? How do you become a guardian and what is the legal process? Get answers to all of these questions by attending this class on September 14, 2015 from 7:30pm-8:30pm.
Transition Planning (18 years and up)
Tresi will present a comprehensive plan for a child with disabilities who is turning 18.
