The American College of Financial Services' ChSNC® designation is the only one in the industry that highlights those advisors who have demonstrated the "technical, collaborative, and quantitative" skills needed to help families address the many unique challenges that come with having special needs. From new parents to those whose children are transitioning to adulthood, FamilyVest is ready to help special needs families plan and manage their affairs in ways that encourage confidence and peace of mind, as the page at https://www.familyvest.com/special-needs-planning details.
"As the father of two sons who are on the autism spectrum, I have seen firsthand how difficult it can be to identify financial advisors working as fiduciaries who are qualified to help families with special needs," Sensing said. "It hardly seems right that those who so often need it the most should lack support, guidance, and help with financial planning and investing. I'm proud to become the recipient of the ChSNC® designation, the only one of its kind. We here at FamilyVest are committed to ensuring that every family with special needs that comes to us for assistance will receive the most informed, professional, and dedicated service available anywhere."
The National Center for Education Statistics reports that about 13 percent of all school-age children nationwide have some disability. Challenges ranging from language impairment and developmental delay to autism-spectrum disorders not only make learning more difficult, but they can also impact the ability of children to become self-sufficient adults.
With millions of families across the United States grappling with how best to accommodate special needs of their own, relevant resources and forms of support can be surprisingly difficult to come by. Even when trained educators make accommodations for the specific needs of children, parents often find themselves wondering where to find answers to their questions about how to plan for the future.
The American College of Financial Services created the ChSNC® designation to provide special needs families with an independent, reliable way to identify financial advisors who have the skills needed to address their unique challenges. From making the most of special needs education opportunities to planning for the use of public benefits and life as an adult, ChSNC® candidates are required to demonstrate in-depth mastery of a wide range of relevant subjects and strategies.
As a recent recipient of the ChSNC® and a Member of the Academy of Special Needs Planners, FamilyVest founder Todd Sensing has committed to help Families with special needs as a fiduciary planner.
