In 2019, National Disability Institute administered a survey to gain a better understanding of the needs of financial counselors and financial coaches to serve people with disabilities. The survey identified that counselors/coaches often do not understand who people with disabilities are, how to serve them and which programs and supports exist. This webinar will provide an overview of the disability community, the unique financial needs and challenges they face, as well as findings and recommendations from the survey. Tools and resources will be highlighted that practitioners can access to build their capacity to serve people with disabilities within their financial counseling/coaching programs.
