Autism and Therapy Financial Guide From Financial Adviser

A certified financial advisor writes a guide to finances on autism and therapy  for parents.

Parents of autistic children have a new guide to the financial side of autism and therapy services. Thanks to Greg Zibricky who has recently written a book along with his wife, Dawn.

F.A.M.I.L.Y. Autism Guide: Your Financial Blueprint for Autism

Greg has been a financial adviser for 27 years and his wife Dawn has a background in nursing. Their son was diagnosed with autism 15 years ago. They have a perfect perspective to offer parents when it comes to offering advise on everything related to autism from financial matters to legal issues, therapy and insurance.

Details of the book have been release on NewLenox.Patch.com by Joe Vince. Read more of the details of the soon to be released book.

“Families have enough coming at them whether their kids are 3, 13 or 23, that it’s very oppressive for them to think, ‘I have to see an attorney.’ ‘I have to see a financial adviser,” said Zibricky, a New Lenox resident. “I wanted them to have a real-life guide to kind of give them a jump-start. … If a family has access to this material, that cuts down the amount of insecurity and the amount of unknowns they have.”
Although Zibricky had never written a book (“I wrote a screenplay once. It wasn’t very good”), he said he thought it was the best way to distill the knowledge he had developed over the past 10 years he’s been doing this type of financial planning for his family, as well as for his Provider Group clients in similar situations. He’s taken that information—culled from the individual timelines and plans he’s created for dozens of families—and streamlined it for a larger audience, he said.

But the book doesn’t simply answer questions like how to handle health insurance or apply for government benefits, it also lays out coping strategies for parents. For instance, the “F” in F.A.M.I.L.Y. stands for “Flexibility,” and that chapter deals more with adjusting attitudes and outlook than it does cold, hard financial facts. Zibricky illustrates his ideas in that chapter—and throughout the book—with personal anecdotes of his family’s experiences. (The other letters in the title, by the way, stand for Access, Money, Insurance and Yap, which stresses the importance of communication.)
