When we think of Transition Services, we focus on the ages of 17-24. Your child will soon be leaving the educational system and entering adult life. Your family is also staring down the pivotal age of 18, when your child becomes a legal adult. There are key decisions and specific action steps that need to be taken in regards to Guardianship, applying for government benefits, and answering critical questions:
Is your child 17 or 18-years-old?
Do you have a guardianship in place?
Do you qualify for supplemental security income?
Are you accessing Medicaid disability services?
Do you have a written plan for your child’s future?
We’d like you to meet Margaret Gaffney, our Transition Coordinator and Government Benefit Specialist. Margaret has developed an easy-to-follow process that is straightforward and simple to understand, but should you do have any questions, she will be there to help you every step of the way. Margaret will also personally coach you through the minefield of transition planning by identifying your family’s needs and helping you access the proper services and benefits best suited to your goals. We’re sure you’ll find Margaret to be an invaluable member of your team – just as we do.
