Transition Series: ENABLE- Special Needs Planning & Mini Grant Overview with Lisa Bennett (Stone Soup Group)

February 22 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

This school year, join Stone Soup Group and the Alaska Down Syndrome Network for our 6 session series on what you need to know as you and your student with disabilities prepare for adulthood. It’s never too early to start preparing for adulthood. We encourage parents of students of all ages to participate!

At ENABLE, we believe that your child was made on purpose—and for a purpose! We also believe that your child has the ability to live an impactful life that makes a positive difference in the world.

Special Needs Planning should enable you to confidently answer the following questions: “What does a happy and fulfilling life look like for my child today–and every day in the future?” and “How do I make sure my child is able to live this GREAT life that I envision?”

In this interactive workshop, we will discuss many key components of your Special Needs Planning journey (SSI, SSDI, Medicaid waivers, ABLE accounts, special needs trusts, guardianship and trustee options) and show you how you can create a Special Needs Plan that enables your son or daughter to live a purposeful life that aligns with your vision and allows you to successfully navigate the years ahead.

You will leave this session with the tips and tools you need to create a flexible plan that can adjust in a rapidly advancing world. The true benefit of planning is the peace of mind you’ll gain from knowing that your family is well prepared for today–and the future!

Presented via ZOOM. ZOOM link will be sent after you have registered.
