Part Two: Shared Experiences: What Worked For Us – People Share Their Experiences
Financial education is important for everyone, including people with disabilities. And there are quite a few topics that fall under financial education – beyond simply budgeting. This webinar is part of a free series on teaching individuals with disabilities about personal finance.

Part two will feature a few individuals with disabilities who have participated in financial education. They will discuss how they learned what they know, where they learned it, and what worked (or didn't work) for them in the process.

This webinar will provide valuable information for both families and professionals on how to best support people with disabilities in financial education.

Plenty of time will be left for questions and discussion at the end.

This webinar will be recorded and the recording will be sent out after the event via email to all who register.

If you have any questions or need assistance with registering, please contact PATF at 484-675-0506 or communications@patf.us.
