Financial literacy for students with special needs

This needs to be part of the IEP process. Students themselves must be involved and consideration must be given to work incentives that protect benefits such as Medicaid/SSI. Students with disabilities need to understand the concepts of earning, saving, budgeting, credit cards, and identity protection. Here's a recent article I wrote https://www.eparent.com/features-3/financial-literacy-students-disabilities-necessary-life-skill-independent-living/ which explains in more detail and also has a link for free student e-books in English and Spanish.
