DETAC Webinar on Engaging Diverse Communities Through Financial Education and Empowerment

April 2, 2024

Tuesday, April 16, 2024 | 3:00-4:00 PM ET
Register for the webinar

Join the Disability Employment Technical Assistance Center (DETAC) for a webinar to increase awareness about National Financial Capability Month. The Illinois Council on Developmental Disabilities funded a three-year initiative with the National Disability Institute (NDI) called "Financial Wellness for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD)." The panel will highlight how this train-the-trainers model provided training to individuals with I/DD and their family members to manage money, reduce debt, and use credit wisely. The training was customized based on individualized needs ranging from a short class to a 10-module curriculum.


  • Kimberly Mercer-Schleider, Director, Illinois Council on Developmental Disabilities
  • Michael Roush, Director, NDI
  • Tyson Bedford, Council Member, Illinois Council on Developmental Disabilities
  • Curtis Harris, Council Member, Illinois Council on Developmental Disabilities

Registrants can note accommodation needs — such as captioning or sign language — on the registration page. The webinar will be live captioned. Webinars are recorded and posted with supporting materials on the DETAC website.
