Future Planning Resources

Developed by By Their Side

  • Future Planning Resource Guide In 2015, By Their Side invited parents and professionals to meet and explore issues and resources related to planning for the future of an only child. Over six months, the group identified a wide range of issues, many of which are shared by families with siblings, and compiled the Future Planning Resource Guide to highlight Maryland and national resources.
  • Lifelong Planning An overview of planning through transitions from childhood to retirement.
  • Letter of Intent Worksheet to help parents make their wishes known to the Trustee of their relative's Special Needs Trust. (See also the Letter of Intent Template by The Arc of Frederick County in Future Planning and Estate Planning Resources, below.)
