Greetings,
 
We hope you can join us on Wednesday, April 30 for an Adolescent Transition Lecture.
 
--Is all of the important information about your child with a disability organized in one location?
 
--Could you "Grab and Go" with this information in the event of an emergency?
 
--Does your child's next guardian know all about your child's likes and dislikes?
 
Plan NOW for your child's future by starting a
 "Letter of Intent" at this workshop!
Participants will receive a
"Grab and Go" Emergency Booklet.
 
Bring your laptop or notebook and get started!
  
  
This will be a hands-on workshop where families will begin to create a "Letter of Intent," also known as an Individual Plan of Care.  Whether your loved one with a disability is a toddler or an adult, no one knows him or her like you do!   
  
Our presenters will be:
--Jean Doyle, LCSW and Support Coordinator
--Anjela McNally, Support Coordinator
Both are with the Futures and Estate Planning Project of The Arc of Frederick County. 
  
The "Letter of Intent":
--includes all of the critical information about your child with a disability.
--includes the family's wishes for the child's future.
--is used when you are not able or available to direct your child's care.
--informs family members, professionals and support staff of the details of your child's life and care, so that your wishes can be carried on in the future. 
  
Lecture is free, and free parking is available.  Snacks and beverages will be provided. 
  
Space is limited, so click below to Register Now!
 
Contact Resource Finder via phone or email (see below) if you have questions.
  
Supported by:
