NDI’s Six Steps to Creating a Financial Literacy Program in Your Classroom or Transition Program - Publication of the Week
So, this month we have highlighted various financial capability/financial literacy tools, resources and publications in recognition of National Financial Capability Month. This time, however, we are digging into our own vault for this week’s Publication of the Week - Six Steps to Creating a Financial Literacy Program in Your Classroom or Transition Program. Because, honestly, who better than National Disability Institute (NDI), the nation’s first non-profit exclusively dedicated to improving the financial capability and capacity of people with disabilities, to discuss improving the financial health of all people?!?
This guide is an excellent resource and provides a roadmap to guide special education teachers, transition specialists and disability advocates as they develop financial literacy programs for persons living with disabilities.
At a time when nearly 1 in 3 Americans with disabilities live in poverty, financial literacy and associated programs are vital to building a better economic future for people with disabilities and key to a successful transition from school to work or college.
