Guardianship Lunch n Learn Seminar with Stephanie Shreter (GAP)
On November 5, 2019, the Alpha School provided a Lunch and Learn seminar with Stephanie Shreter from the Guardianship Assistance Program of NJ (GAP). Under New Jersey law, all children are vested with certain constitutional rights once they attain age 18 regardless of the disability.
A legal guardianship is required in order to allow the parents or guardian to continue making crucial life decisions regarding finances, education, and medical issues for the disabled adult. GAP provides affordable legal services for parents of developmentally delayed youth attaining adulthood. The mission of GAP is to assist parents of developmentally disabled young adults in obtaining legal guardianship.
