Since many of you will make New Year’s resolutions we thought we’d give you three things to add to your New Year’s checklist for parents of children with special needs.

1. Insurance.

This is the perfect time of year to go over your plan. Check to see if there have been any changes with your deductible or coverage. If you do come across any changes, make sure you get that information to us!

I know we go over insurance a lot this time of year, but that’s because it’s a very important issue. If your child has been in therapy for any length of time you understand just how important insurance is.

2. Finances.

Many people have financial resolutions at this time of year. It’s a great time to get your finances in order. This is also a great time to teach your kiddos about finances! If you look through some of our older videos you’ll see some ways that we help our kids manage their money. We have blogs on our website about special needs trusts, which you can look into to make sure your kiddos are taken care of in their adult and later years. This is a great time to make sure all your “i”s are dotted and your “t”s are crossed!

3. Fitness.

Lots of you have fitness goals for the new year. Make sure that you include your kids in this! If their range of motion is not where it needs to be you might consider some occupational or physical therapy. But you definitely want to get your kiddos moving and active, and if you’re leading the way, that will help them want to participate more in those activities!

So there are three things to get your new year moving in the right direction. Make sure all your insurance is up to date in the office, look over your financial plan and your special needs trusts to make sure all of that is up to date, and try out some ways to get yourself and your kiddos more active and in shape!
