Hunterdon Prep parents and guardians are invited to attend a webinar on March 23, 2021, at 7:00 PM. The webinar is titled "Turning 18: Guardianship, Entitlements & Waiting Lists" and is being presented by Attorneys at Hinkle, Prior & Fischer, P.C. They have over 70 years of combined experience providing specialized legal services to families of children and adults with a wide range of disabilities, and seniors.
Turning 18: Guardianship, Entitlements & Waiting Lists
At age 18 (or age 21 in some states) a child is viewed as an adult, regardless of disability, and therefore, is legally empowered to make decisions. Parents will be faced with decisions about guardianship and surrogate decision-making. In addition, the service delivery system changes dramatically as children exit the school system. Often, there are waiting lists for services. And federal entitlement programs, such as SSI and Medicaid can be confusing and hard to access. In this presentation, participants will learn about what to expect from the service system as a child transitions to adulthood and how to avoid common problems. This hour-long presentation includes a Q&A session at the end.
If you are interested in attending, please contact Jamie Capezzuto at email@example.com. She will provide you with the link the week of the presentation.
