Description

Please join us for a panel discussion featuring the perspectives of an experienced attorney as well as two parents who have chosen different legal options for their young adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD).

Dustin Rynders, Attorney-at-Law, Disability Rights Texas

Judy Blake, Family To Family Network, parent of young adult with special needs

Terry Pelz, Parent of young adult with special needs

Parents of youth with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) often struggle with questions such as:

  • Should I pursue guardianship?

  • What if my child needs help making some decisions but not all?

  • If I do not have guardianship, will I be able to talk to my child’s teachers? Go to his/her doctor appointments?

  • How can I best support, protect and guide my adult child?

Free Parking Please make childcare arrangements • Light refreshments served
