One of the issues that parents of some children with moderate to severe disabilities encounter is whether to seek guardianship at age 18, according to Becca Hornstein, executive director of the Council for Jews With Special Needs. In those cases, without obtaining legal guardianship or another option, such as power of attorney, parents or other caregivers may not legally be able to continue to make decisions about their adult child’s education, health and other concerns.

Hornstein said that numerous inquiries she has received about guardianship led to the decision to offer a workshop with Jewish Legal Aid.
