2021 Special Needs Financial Planning Workshops

This information is rarely found in one place. We pride ourselves on being able to connect people and families with special needs to resources that can help them navigate the challenges presented by brain injury. Below are two sets of presentations on how to financially plan for a loved one with special needs. Each topic has multiple dates each with a separate registration link. All of the information sessions are FREE!
