Do I Need A Neurodivergent Financial Advisor?
Raising a neurodivergent child or being neurodivergent requires specialized financial planning. For instance, it’s estimated that autism costs an average of $17,000 a year beyond normal expenses. That is significant additional money that requires special planning.
Neurodivergent families have more expenses than other people. Still, they need to plan for their future just like everyone else, which can be overwhelming to figure out when balancing the struggle of autism with building financial security.
Financial planning can be complicated to master, but for those with unique special needs, neurodivergent financial advisory services are critical for optimal results.
How to find a neurodivergent financial advisor for your neurodivergent family?
