Ohio developmental disabilities system overview for the aging network

This webinar will provide an overview of Ohio’s Developmental Disability System with an emphasis on areas that intersect with adult guardianship. Area of focus will include: Ohio’s developmental disability system structure ; eligibility for developmental disability services; appeals and advocacy within the developmental disability system; local, state and federal benefits available to persons with developmental disabilities; Medicaid waivers specific to persons with developmental disabilities; unique concerns for guardian’s of persons with developmental disabilities; and how to protect eligibility for benefits.

 
Presenter: Derek Graham is an estate planning attorney and partner at Resch, Root, Philipps & Graham, LLC in Dublin, Ohio. Derek’s practice focuses on estate planning, special needs planning, developmental disabilities law, guardianship, probate, probate litigation and business (organizational, transactional and succession). Early in his career he was fortunate to get experience in civil litigation, business transactions and estate planning. Then in 2009, he and his wife had their first daughter who was born with Down syndrome. Like many of his clients today, they were inundated with information and felt overwhelmed. Twelve years later, he now spends the majority of his days helping similarly situated families with the various resources that exist. Derek finds it very rewarding to help families understand how to effectively and practically plan their estate. More than that though, he enjoys helping families understand the resources available to them and how to get the most out of those resources.
