My guest will be Ezekiel (Zeke) Zimmerman is a Financial Advisor whose practice – Special Needs Family Planning – specializes in the unique needs of families where an individual has a disability. This planning is done with an emphasis on ensuring that care can be provided for the entire lifetime of a family member, regardless of whether that individual has a physical, mental, intellectual or developmental disability.
As the parent of an autistic child, Zeke appreciates firsthand the pressures that special needs families face in order to understand and provide for all of their children’s needs while at the same time finding balance and sanity in every other aspect of their lives. To that effect, Zeke often presents to other special needs parents, professionals and community groups on topics related to special needs planning and his process has helped many families to strategize productively around these otherwise overwhelming challenges and to achieve optimal outcomes.
Zeke is also fully bilingual in Spanish. As Director of SNFP en español he has made it his mission to expand awareness, education and planning opportunities to traditionally underserved linguistic minority communities throughout the tri-state area.
