Burlington, February 8th, 2017. This workshop is an opportunity to learn about the various programs, benefits, supports, and subsidies that families can piece together to fund an independent adult life. Presenter Michael Weiner, Treasurer for the Federation for Children with Special Needs and member of his local DDS Citizens Advisory Board, will describe how he utilized these to create a support system for his 27 year old son, Zachary. Zachary currently lives in an apartment in Brookline and goes to work each day, independently, to his full time job in downtown Boston.
Michael is devoted to assisting families in integrating all available benefits into a comprehensive plan for their loved one with special needs. Mike resides in Medfield with his wife, Susan. Their youngest son, Zachary, has developmental delays and an intellectual disability.
