LOS ANGELES, UNITED STATES, June 3, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — James Lange, best-selling author, CPA, and attorney, is set to present a life-changing three-day virtual summit to provide parents with multiple strategies for navigating the often complicated process of obtaining life-altering benefits for their child with a disability.

To reserve a virtual seat for the FINANCIAL AND LIFE PLANNING SUMMIT FOR PARENTS OF A CHILD WITH A DISABILITY, please register at https://DisabledChildPlanning.com/JuneSummit

The featured speakers are the three co-authors of the best-selling book, “Retire Secure for Parents of a Child with a Disability.” Each will explain and detail the most effective strategies within their areas of expertise, from financial to legal. Their information will help parents access available benefits, implement long-term financial plans, and understand the need for specific legal documents. Other speakers will address issues relating to the social and emotional well-being of their child’s long-term care, including independent housing options, enhancing family lifestyles, and reducing anxiety and stress.
