I offer my own personal experience as someone who transitioned from sibling to caregiver and guardian to illustrate how vital it is to plan for the future. We may not be able to direct the wind, but we can direct the sails.

Special Needs Planning. This is a topic that affects many families on a daily basis. Craig Marcott has a lifetime of experience to guide him, and he knows how important it is to share information surrounding Special Needs Planning, Guardianship, SSI services and more through his workshops.
Craig has offered several workshops this month alone, and has another coming this week on September 26.
The first workshop in September, “The Changing Landscape of Special Needs…And How To Plan For It!”, was on the 12th. Craig shared his personal experience as a guardian of his brother, Scott, who has Down syndrome. This workshop shared with parents the change in government benefits and how these changes affect Special Needs Planning, individuals with special needs and their families.
The second workshop included a national webinar for professionals of the Financial Planning Association surrounding “Entitlements vs. Eligibility” and the final one for this month will be “Planning For Two Generations.”
“It is my goal to empower parents to make informed decisions for their disabled child by sharing my knowledge and experience,” said Craig Marcott. “My workshops focus on the critical ages and pressure points in the typical life of a child and family with special needs. I offer my own personal experience as someone who transitioned from sibling to caregiver and guardian to illustrate how vital it is to plan for the future. We may not be able to direct the wind, but we can direct the sails.”
With so much to share, Craig continues to bring his important workshops to families looking for the most current and pertinent information. Craig’s combined personal and professional experience enables him to help parents achieve their goal of providing the fullest life possible for their special needs child.
