In March of this year, Barb Ziemke from PACER presented a seminar to us on “The Transition Cliff” – the importance of long-term planning for kids with disabilities before they grow up. Second in this series is a nuts and bolts seminar on current options for such planning, taught by CLI’S own George Zaske a collaborative attorney with extensive experience and a deep knowledge base regarding disabilities law and family planning for children with disabilities through their lifespans.  George has presented at seminars in Wisconsin and Minnesota, consulted with disabilities advocacy groups in both states, and provided expert testimony.
Learning Objectives
Attendees will understand:

  1. case law on the subject of extending child support for children with disabilities beyond the end of high school graduation/age 18.

  2. that high schools are "graduating" these children at commencement time without diplomas and the impact this has on the end of child support.

  3. the new financial planning devices such as ABLE accounts for post-high school needs, as well as college inclusive programs and housing alternatives, and new developments in social policy around Supportive Decision Making.

  4. the pitfalls for parents in “defaulting” into guardianship for kids with disabilities, and the risk parents have of losing their life savings to government “spenddowns.”
