2014 Assets Learning Conference

Asset Building Opens the Workplace to People with Disabilities

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014
2-3:15 PM

Room: Howard

People with disabilities are far more likely to be unemployed and live in poverty, but many people with disabilities can enter the workforce with the aid of assistive technology. This session will discuss how disability advocates and practitioners are now using asset building to help people with disabilities gain financial capability and acquire the tools they need to become productive workers and improve their quality of life.
