The Arc of Aurora’s training and education program THINK+change produces quarterly vodcasts and podcasts. Each quarter we discuss topics that improve knowledge, attitude, and behavior to ultimately improve the quality of life for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), their families, and the professionals in their lives.
Beyond Love, Relationships, and Disability
People with disabilities have been fighting for their rights for decades, and while many areas of community life have improved, people with I/DD are often unable to successfully navigate loving relationships. Please joinThe Arc of Aurora's Advocacy Team and The Limbaugh Law Firm as we review common struggles in Beyond Love, Relationships, and Disability.
Episode 1: "Finding Love" evaluates guardianship considerations, safe ways to meet people, impact on benefits such as SSI, SSDI, Medicaid, and Home and Community-Based Services, and the "marriage penalty."
Episode 2: "Strategies to make it work" reviews civil union, domestic partnership, and common law "traps", becoming a paid caregiver, and adjusting benefits and bank accounts.
Episode 3: "Planning for the Future" features special guest Von Limbaugh from the Limbaugh Law Firm as he navigates Advanced Directives, having children, and Estate Planning.
