New Mission

New Mission


My idea is to explore how other countries around the world are dealing with education and special education issues. I’d like to see different successful schools, wherever they may be, up close. I’d like to sit down with directors and administrators. I’d like to speak with government officials who keep a pulse on the education affairs of their communities. I want to learn more about education around the globe through speaking with locals, seeing the schools, and shaking hands with the people responsible for implementing the systems. If you know of any outstanding (public or private) special needs schools in other parts of the world, I’d love to hear about them. If you know any education experts from around the world, I’d love to be introduced to them. Please do not hesitate to share your thoughts or ideas. Read more about my mission.

Could ABLE Accounts Replace The Need For Special Needs Trusts?

Consider this article which discusses a proposed savings program for individuals with disabilities which would allow such individuals to maintain a savings account in a manner that would not jeopardize government benefits.  A special needs trust would typically serve this function.  An ABLE account, however, might be a cost-effective alternative if the proposed legislation is passed.
