Developing Financial Capability Among Youth

This webinar covers the basics of how youth can increase their capacity to manage financial resources effectively and what families can do to assist them in developing financial knowledge and practicing money management and decision making skills.

Family Support in Post Secondary Education

This webinar looks at positive ways that families can help support their youth with disabilities in post-secondary education opportunities. Youth and families both need to adjust to the new experience of post-secondary education and it is important to know the major differences between high school and post-secondary education as it pertains to laws, advocacy, and responsibility. Although the level of family involvement in post-secondary education is usually much less than in high school there are effective and appropriate ways to support youth success in this new environment.
