Planning for Special Needs - Central Florida supports families with disabilities

Both Friday and Saturday were spent serving Central Florida's families with disabilities. On Friday Sarah AuMiller and I attended The Family Cafe, a state-wide disabilities conference. The program occurs annually at the Coronado Springs Resort at Disney. This three day program offers educational workshops, entertainment and an exhibit hall - all geared to provide information and resources not otherwise available in one place. The conference is free to families with disabilities. I presented Special People,Special Planning discussing special needs trusts and guardian advocacy for kids who have attained the age of 18.

On Saturday Sarah AuMiller, Tiffany Metz and I manned a booth waterside at Lake Eola for Make 'em Smile sponsored annually by Nathaniel's Hope. Records crowds were expected and I suspect there were more than 5,000 people in attendance. The Law Offices of Hoyt & Bryan held a stuffed animal drive for several months prior to the event so we could provide the children with a stuffed animal of their choice. It was a big hit. Thanks to all who participated in the drive and donated those much needed and appreciated stuffed animals They actually lasted more than 4 hours!
We visited with lots of new friends and existing clients.

On June 16th, The Law Offices of Hoyt & Bryan will present their quarterly workshop called Special People, Special Planning and all families interested in learning more about estate planning for special needs are invited. You can register by calling our office at 407-977-8080. This informal, yet educational program will give participants the information they need to make some informed decisions about special needs trusts, guardianship or guardian advocacy, and estate planning. We hope to see you there!
