Special Needs Planning: Age 3

Toddlers with special needs are now eligible for different services to prepare them for the classroom.


At age 3, Special Needs Children become eligible to have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and can begin receiving services from the local, public school district. During this time of transition, a caretaker should become well versed in the process to effectively advocate on behalf of the child.

You may find Leah’s background and experience in this area as a great resource during this transition. Your child may receive services through the public school until the age of 22. During the transition, Leah can help you better understand potential issues to consider. When possible, she makes herself available to attend meetings with you at your local, public school. We can also discuss other avenues a caretaker can pursue to obtain the services your child may need. Your financial plan can be continually updated to reflect changes in the services the child will need to thrive.
