Special Education Resources: Transitioning
As your child approaches the age of 18 - 21, new opportunities become available. At O'Byrne Law, we make sure that you are aware of all resources available to you. We help with:
Planning for supporting child’s decision making in future: discussion of guardianship and alternatives
If capable, your child may want to prepare his or her legal documents and we can help.
We revisit your estate plan, and remind you about updating the appointment of fiduciaries as well as beneficiary designations
We review your and your child’s circumstances to help enable eligibility for important income and assistance benefits such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medical Assistance (also known as Medicaid)
selecting community based providers through Community Pathways Waiver
developing own provider network through New Directions
strategize for residence
planning for work
role of siblings and other family members in child’s future
Baltimore County Board of Education has moved their Transition Fair on-line starting October 1, 2020. Check out this great resource and watch the O’Byrne Law video below. Just as we serve people throughout the state so do many of the other exhibitors, so take a look even if you don’t live in Baltimore County.
