ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Guardians of children with special needs are learning how to help them transition into adulthood.

Easter Seals Southern Georgia held a free class Wednesday night.

One main piece of advice was to get power of attorney so you can continue to legally make decisions for the person with disabilities.

"What we want to do is protect them. So I recommend to parents of my clients and anybody else that I happen to come into contact [with]. Shortly before their child turns 18 consider getting a power of attorney for education," said class presenter Jean Estes.

The class will be offered again on Thursday from noon to 2 p.m. at the Easter Seals office on Palmyra road.
