At Options for College Success, we are currently beginning our annual Parent’s Weekend. One of the highlights began this afternoon with Andre Sam of the Special Needs Education and Advocacy Project (@snproject). Andre reached out to us a few months ago, and his knowledge, expertise, and insight are a much needed resource for those who have a loved one with learning challenges and disabilities.
Transition planning and planning for adult services and care in the future is incredibly daunting for any caregiver. Andre Sam provides workshops and is more than happy to conduct mini consultations to meet with families individually to provide information on planning, including:
Guardianship vs. Power of Attorney vs. Microboards, Wills, Family Trusts, Special Needs Trusts, SSI, SSA, Medicaid/Medicare, ABLE accounts, budget planning, and transition planning.
Our team has been so pleased with the work he has done, and with how he has worked with our families that we had to share this resource! Please contact him at andre.sam@SpecialNeedsProject.org or (801)-884-9684.
It is never too early or too late to plan for your loved one and your family!
