Event description

Description

Come share both the joys and the challenges of supporting a loved one with Autism. Bring your lunch if you'd like! We regret any inconvenience it may cause, but childcare is not available.

Topic: "Exploring Guardianship"

ASNC Autism Resource Specialist, Jan Combs, will lead a discussion on the planning and preparation for Guardianship. We will explore the following, but hope you will bring your own additional questions as well:

* What is Guardianship?

* Is this an appropriate fit for my child?

* How is this determined?

* Who decides?

* Learn about alternatives to guardianship

* Consider the importance of future financial planning.

About Our Presenter:

Jan Combs has been associated with the Autism Society of NC for many years, employed in 2012 as an Autism Resource Specialist. Her youngest child was diagnosed with autism at age three.

Her great passion is assisting others to successfully navigate and embrace the lifelong journey of learning about – and living with - autism. She works to help others succeed in life, whatever their challenges, and to make those struggles a little easier wherever she can.

Her educational background includes a bachelor of science in nursing from UNC-CH.

When not traveling, Jan enjoys family time, reading, hiking, swimming and dancing.

We strive to keep our monthly Lunch'n'Learn meetings free of cost to families. Because our Wake Chapter resides in the same county as the ASNC State Office, we enjoy meeting space free of cost to the chapter, and we often are able to have clinical or other professional staff from ASNC present to us free of charge. If you are able, please consider a tax-decuctible donation in any amount - no amount is too small - to the Autism Society of NC online at https://www.autismsociety-nc.org/donate-online/ or by mail including this PDF: https://www.autismsociety-nc.org/wp-content/uploads/donatebymail_asnc_form_2.pdf

If it's more convenient, feel free to bring your cash or check donation to a Lunch'n'Learn meeting!

We hope you will consider designating your donation to the Wake County Chapter. You are also welcome to volunteer for the chapter if you'd like to coordinate a Moms (or Dads!) Night Out, Coffee Chat, Fundraiser or other event. Contact Freda by e-mail at wakechapter@autismsociety-nc.org
