Why do I post so many articles about Autism Spectrum Disorder?

rivercity - badgeA friend of mine recently asked why I seem to post so many articles about Autism Spectrum Disorder.  He knew that I practiced elder law, and logically assumed that a large part of my practice would focus on estate planning, wills, and power of attorney documents.

I explained that he was right about those things being a large part of my work, but that I posted about ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) and other things related to children with special needs because part of practice involves helping the parents of such children plan for how to see that their child’s needs are met once the parents have passed away.

A testamentary special needs trust can be very useful for such clients, as it can provide a way for the special needs person to have funds to supplement their daily needs and comfort without jeopardizing their eligibility for government benefits.  Please contact me at 502-509-4635 or ken@rivercityelderlaw.com if I can help you or a loved one plan for a special needs child.
