I am very pleased to announce that the FamilyConnect web team has created a new feature on our website called Ask the Experts. Each month we have invited an expert to write an article on a variety of topics of interest to parents. What makes this feature unique is that the experts have committed to be available to answer your questions, and you can also post comments and interact with other parents about the subject.
Our first featured expert is Steve Morris on the topic of “Planning for the Financial Future of a Child with Multiple Disabilities,” as we know it is a big worry for parents—what will happen with my child after I pass away or become disabled and unable to manage? Steve explains some solutions of how parents can plan ahead for their child’s future with some very helpful steps for setting up a Special Needs Trust and Life Plan.
I hope you will take advantage and gain new insights by engaging yourselves with the “Ask the Experts” blog. Please tell other parents you know about this new resource, too, by pointing them to www.familyconnect.org/blog.asp?BlogID=2. It’s a great way of sharing reliable information that may be difficult to find easily otherwise.
