Lehman Disability Planning

I help families plan for the present and future needs of their child with disabilities.

I also help families remember planning is about the entire family, not just one family member. Every person in your family has present and future needs and all deserve consideration in planning.

I offer coaching and consulting services, from review and advice on accessible services for quality of life now and for the future, to helping you define your long-term vision and, of equal importance, to supporting you in completing instructions for clarity in your absence.

Because three domains impact your family’s journey, Disability Benefits, Financial Management and Planning and Legal documentation to ensure protection of your assets and your children, I work with financial advisors and specializing attorneys. If you only have one of these territories covered or they are not coordinated, you do not have a fully considered life care plan for your child.

Quality of life planning and funding encompasses many areas of concern for your children including independence, financial well-being, social and recreational opportunities, housing, education and employment.

Because families are often continually overwhelmed by the responsibilities of the present moment, developing a comprehensive future plan habitually is relegated to a perpetual "to do" list.

I will assemble your team to move your family’s planning from your “to do” list to “DONE!”

Because of my own experience with a medically fragile and developmentally disabled child, I became a statewide leader for change. Working within the Colorado early intervention system, private and public health insurance industries, and disability initiatives and medical practices, I successfully:
- Spearheaded 14 CO statutes to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities and their families,
- Served as Executive Director for the Autism Society of CO
- Chaired the CO Autism Commission and the CO Division of Insurance Consumer Council

Now I share the wisdom I gained on my journey with parents and guardians of children with special needs who are also determined to build a brighter future for their loved ones.

Loan Simple Inc.

Sometimes disabled persons can live independently but do not have the financial means to qualify for a home purchase on their own; however, both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac offer programs addressing precisely this circumstance. These programs are designed to allow qualifying family members to purchase a home for their disabled loved ones.

As a Mortgage Specialist, I offer a free consultation to those who would like to learn more about how such programs work. Please contact me to learn more.
