The Brent Woodall Foundation presents a mini-workshop called Replacing the Irreplaceable Parent – The Special Needs Planning Dilemma on Saturday, May 18, 2013 at 5:00pm.
The fee to register is $10.00 for an individual or $15 for a couple. To register, please click here.
Special needs families face many challenges on a daily basis. Many of them are easy to solve, but issues such as financial planning and saving money are all too often complicated with few resources available to provide the correct guidance. This course, led by financial planner Melissa Cox, is designed to help families understand that the special needs planning process will provide personal, financial, and emotional security for a loved one, as well as peace of mind for the parents and family.
The Brent Woodall Foundation offers parent mini-workshops covering fundamental topics in ABA treatment to provide families with basic tools for teaching their children at home and in their community. These workshops are made available throughout the year.
Brent Woodall was 31 and working for Keefe, Bruyette and Woods in Tower 2 of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. The foundation that honors him helps autistic children reach their full potential.
