Guardianship

The guardianship process takes approximately nine to ten months to complete, so parents/caregivers will want to begin this process, if eligible and applicable to your child,  before the individual turns 18. Guardianship gives the parents/caretakers permission to talk to their child’s doctors, as well as advocate on their behalf. Family Law Attorney Brian Carroll has years of expertise in this area and has helped hundreds of families obtain guardianship.

Vocational Rehabilitation Services

VR is a program within the Bureau of Rehabilitation Services (BRS) that helps people with disabilities prepare for, obtain and retain employment by working closely with a counselor.

Special Education after High School

Education is an essential aspect of life that can help individuals with autism reach their full potential and lead a fulfilling life. After completing high school, there are various opportunities available for autistic individuals to continue their education.

Other Steps to Consider

Your child may be eligible for SSI – There is always the possibility they could qualify, even if they can hold a job. Parents/caregivers will want to set up their will/trust so that the child doesn’t inherit your estate, which would eradicate their eligibility for SSI. Instead, parents/caregivers will want to set up a trust and appoint someone to handle that trust, which protects the child from losing benefits they are eligible for.
