I have long been a proponent of being ready for whatever life throws at you (storms, natural events, the unknown).
The single best government resource available is still Ready.gov
Recently I got an email from Jenny Wise, firstname.lastname@example.org
As a home-educator to my own special needs child (my youngest has autism), I periodically help other families by taking in their children during class time. I have at least two students I’m fortunate enough to teach semi-regularly who not only have a cognitive disability, but also a physical one.
Living in California, where we’re known for having earthquakes and wildfires, I can’t help but think about what would happen if a natural disaster were to occur while one of these special students were under my care. I’ve done a lot of research and consulted with their parents to make sure we’ve done all we can to make sure that everyone — regardless of their physical abilities — has a safety plan.
Great advice! Here are the links.

Having been a CPA for over two decades, I’ve seen how straining it can be to have a debilitating, physically-tolling condition like MS — not just emotionally and physically, but also financially. My job has always been not only to help people navigate their financial landscape with these kinds of conditions, but also to do whatever I can to make life more manageable for them.
