Good morning, Northport. Here's a look at what's happening today in town.
Workshop for Parents with Children with Special Needs A workshop will be held today for parents of children with special needs at the Elwood Public Library at 7 p.m. The
workshop will introduce different aspects in developing a life care plan for achieving the best quality of life in
every area for children with special needs. The program will touch on
topics including: planning the transition through the school years and
different schools; preventing the loss of government benefits;
supplemental needs trusts- how they work and why they are useful; how to
fund your child's financial future during uncertain times; guardianship
- who will make the important decisions when the special needs child
turns 18; and preparing an effective "letter of intent" that spells out
not only your hopes and dreams for your child, but also their own unique
needs and wishes. Call Elwood Library to register at 499-3722. Priority is given to Elwood residents. Non-residents will be placed on a waiting list.
