Nobody knows more about the unique needs of a person with a disability than the individual and those who support the individual (including, many times, the parents). While there are many tools available to maximize opportunities and improve quality of life for the individual, an often underutilized tool is a letter of intent. A
letter of intent serves two important roles. First, it helps the person with disabilities to advocate for themselves. Second, it attempts to minimize disruption in the event that a caregiver is no longer able to provide support and a new person must step in.
Q: Charlie, I hear that October is a special month for dog lovers?
A: It is! Every October, dog lovers and rescuers celebrate Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. This annual tradition was started by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) to raise public awareness of the millions of dogs awaiting homes in shelters.
