Options for Decision–Making When My Child on the Spectrum Turns 18

An xMinds Event

Date and Time:  Wednesday, November 18 at 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Location:  Online

Cost: Free


For our children to reach their potential and live fulfilling lives as adults, it is essential that they direct their own lives to the fullest extent possible. How can parents lay the groundwork for a child who may need continued support into adulthood? 

Join us on November 18 for an online panel discussion about various models for decision–making. You'll learn about alternatives to guardianship, and what you can do now to prepare for your child's most self-directed future. You'll also have a chance to ask our panelists questions. 

Our guests will be Morgan Whitlatch, Legal Director of the nonprofit Quality Trust for Individuals with Disabilities, and Adam Hoffman, an autistic adult, 32, who is living independently and making decisions for himself with help from his parents and other members of his support team. Adam's father Howard Hoffman will also speak about his experience supporting Adam. 

Registration is Required When you register, you will receive a confirmation email containing your link to join the webinar. Check your junk email if you don't see your confirmation email immediately.
