Wouldn't it be great to have a tax-free savings plan for a person with disabilities? This may be coming soon to a state near you (not quite yet to Colorado). Congress has passed a law allowing Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) accounts, which are tax-free accounts for individuals with disabilities, to which other people can make contributions. A friend of mine, Constance Smith, has written about this here.
Update in June 2015: Ms. Smith adds that these accounts are now available in Colorado, here.
Inclusion in school of children with severe special needs can be a challenge. Private schools are not legally required to offer special education services, but some do. The first of these videos, called "Including Isaac," is about a Christian academy and its journey with Isaac, who has spinal muscular atrophy. The second video, "Patrick's Inclusion Journey," is about including a child with Down Syndrome at a Catholic school. Patrick's story is included on the website for the National Catholic Board on Full Inclusion.
