LARCHMONT, N.Y. -- A guest speaker at a June meeting of Larchmont Rotary talked about where families can find support if they have a member with special needs.
Counselor Joanne Amorosi said having a chartered special needs consultant, or ChSNC, and other community supports that can help families navigate laws governing individuals with special needs.
The ChSNC professional has an in-depth knowledge of laws governing special needs individuals such as guardianships, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, disability insurance and special needs trusts, Amorosi said.
She also pointed to such groups as:
- Consortium of Westchester.
- SE Consortium of Mamaroneck.
- Westchester Medical Center.
