Also, the financial experts at The Simple Dollar recently published a guide on how to plan and provide for a child with special needs. Financial planning and preparation are essential for ensuring every child gets the help they need, now and for the future. We created a resource that covers the important preparations recommended for every milestone in your child’s life. We have also included a printable milestone checklist.  www.thesimpledollar.com
