Graeme Treeby is the parent of three children, the youngest of whom has multiple complex disability-related challenges. In 1990, Graeme realized he needed to begin putting a plan into place for his daughter given that she would always require 24-hour care. While researching options, Graeme and his wife came to see that very little planning information was readily available. Graeme decided to give up his accounting career and founded The Special Needs Planning Group, which focuses on sharing information about Henson Trusts, Registered Disability Savings Plans and acquiring government benefits so as to provide a full and respectful lifestyle for individuals living with disabilities.  Recently Graeme and other disability experts have founded a place for one-stop planning, Bright Futures Ability Network.  Graeme can still be reached at The Special Needs Planning Group
