Please register for How to Develop an Effective Financial Literacy Program for Persons with Developmental Disabilities
on Sep 26, 2013 2:00 PM EDT at: https://attendee.
Financial education fosters financial stability for individuals, families, and entire communities, including those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. As more people with I/DD are living self-determined lives, it is critically important that they, and those who care for them, are equipped with strategies that provide financial knowledge, skills and resources so that they can manage and use their money to achieve both short and long-term goals to become economically self-sufficient. Having such skills improves financial health and well-being.
