Special Needs Trusts for Individuals on the Autism Spectrum
By Washington Trust / November 3, 2020

Caring for someone on the autism spectrum can be a significant challenge, one which most of us are not equipped to handle alone. We are lucky to live in a time where awareness, acceptance, and the availability of public and private resources for those on the spectrum are at an all-time high, so that we can help our loved ones to live a full and fulfilling life. But what happens when we are no longer able to assist due to age, incapacity/disability, or after we are gone?

This one-of-a-kind webinar is designed for attorneys and families to gain a better understanding of how a special needs trust (SNT) can help support loved ones/clients on the spectrum throughout their entire life.

This webinar features Kimberly I. McCarthy, Esq., Senior Vice President, Chief Tax & Benefits Officer, Head of Client Services, Washington Trust Wealth Management, Lauren K. Drury, J.D., Vice President, Chief Wealth Management Fiduciary Officer, Washington Trust Wealth Management, Anna Johnson, Head of School at The Wolf School and Nancy Fisher Chudacoff, Of Counsel at Cameron & Mittleman LLP.
