Special Needs Child and Planning a Safe Future

Special Needs Child and Planning a Safe Future

North Shore families, and those from across the country, overwhelmed by caring for a special needs child will get professional guidance this weekend. Protected Tomorrows, a Lincolnshire advocacy firm for the special needs community, will hold a workshop, “Bringing You Protected Tomorrows: Your Journey through an Eight-Step Special Needs Planning Program,” Saturday, June 23, 9:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. at the Lincolnshire Marriott, 10 Marriott Drive, in Lincolnshire.

The interactive program will feature Protected Tomorrows founder Mary Anne Ehlert, and is part of the Cornelia de Lange Syndrome Foundation Conference. Cornelia de Lange Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that affects about 2,500 people in the U.S.

Special Needs Planning for Future

Ehlert will discuss the “eight stages” of Protected Tomorrows’ proprietary “Future Care Planning” process, including:

· Choosing Future Care People

· Understanding Special Needs Trusts

· Communicating Wishes and Plans to Family Members

Ehlert is a certified financial planner with more than 20 years of experience working with families with special needs, including caring and future care planning for a sister with cerebral palsy. Protected Tomorrows is made up of a network of specially-trained professionals and “Advocates” worldwide who are prepared to guide families through the complexities of government benefits, financial planning and legal considerations.

The number of people with special needs is growing steadily in the United States. A recent report from the CDC noted that the number of children with autism has nearly doubled in the past decade, so more families are in need of this important information.
