Affording Resources for Children with Special Needs

The Tuesdays at Trident Academy Speaker Series will conclude its 2013 schedule on November 12 with a presentation on Tax Implications and Benefits for Special Needs Related Costs. Lynn Allen and Frank Frazier of Merrill Lynch will share how families can afford resources for a child with special needs.
