- Promoting Positive Interaction with Law Enforcement: A Panel Discussion
Promoting Positive Interaction with Law Enforcement: A Panel Discussion
At Pathfinders for Autism, we have been training law enforcement on how to best interact with individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities since 2012. As a part of PFA’s continuing commitment to promoting positive relationships between those with disabilities and the law enforcement community, we feel there is a need for a holistic approach to this critical conversation. Please join our moderator, former police officer and 105.7 The Fan morning show host, Rob Long, as he and a panel of law enforcement officers discuss the rules that should be followed to help ensure everyone’s safety. The panel will also discuss what caregivers can do to help make it a better interaction for all involved.
The webinar is free to attend, but registration is required. Prior to the webinar, a Zoom link will be sent to you.
If you have questions for the panel, please submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 19.

- What Families Need to Know About Planning for a Loved One with Special Needs
What Families Need to Know About Planning for a Loved One with Special Needs
Presented by Elville and Associates’ principal and lead attorney Stephen R. Elville, this webinar is a discussion that will educate attendees about planning for their loved one with special needs.
Attendees will come to understand what is involved in the planning process for a special needs family and the importance of preserving the loved one’s financial security and quality of life.
The key issues of understanding the role of public benefits, making decisions about the future, Maryland ABLE, and using estate planning and trusts to protect assets will be discussed along with the types of special needs trusts and their specific purposes (along with who the decision makers and beneficiaries can be in these trusts). Also, to be touched upon will be the “planning team concept” — how your planning team (attorney, financial advisor, CPA) — can work together to help provide your family peace of mind during the special needs planning process.
