If you are a parent of a young child or adolescent with special needs, you are not likely thinking about this, but it's a good time to become familiar with the concept of Guardianship. Guardianship refers to the transfer of rights over to the parent when your child turns 18 years of age. There are several factors to consider.
Take a look at my blog with Different Dream (www.differentdream.com) for an overview of the process and when it's time to begin thinking about transferring guardianship. It's a 2 part series, so make sure you read both parts!
As always, I look forward to hearing from you!
