In this session, participants will learn about a spectrum of decision-making options available for people with disabilities. We will discuss informal supports, supported decision-making agreements, powers of attorney, and guardianship, and cover both personal/health care and financial/estate decisions.  We will discuss 529 ABLE Savings Accounts and Special Needs Trusts (SNTs), and learn how these planning tools interact with one another.

All people experience stress from time to time.  However, when that stress is significant and persistent, it can overwhelm our capacity to respond.  This is sometimes called toxic stress or trauma.  In this session we will learn how overwhelming stress can impact the developing brain and stress response system in a child and how the body adapts to this exposure.   We will review the stages of escalation and dysregulation that a child may experience in an upsetting event.   Strategies that promote regulation and resilience will be shared.
