It's All Up to You
Our March installment of The Year in Special Needs Planning focuses on Family. This crisis has pushed the pause button on many of our daily lives. Imagine if you were not able to be there for your child now, when their routine has been completely disrupted and we are asked to isolate ourselves. If you were not there, the people you have designated to care for your child would need detailed information about your child’s history and personal preferences. This information is contained in a Letter of Intent.
Complete or update your Letter of Intent NOW. Being sequestered presents an opportunity to observe and document all of the important facts about your child's care, including the easy-to-overlook small elements of daily living that bring joy to both your lives. It also is a time to sort out and reflect upon your feelings and expectations when thinking about the future for your child.
