A Review of Financial Literacy Programs for K-12 Students with Intellectual Disabilities: Utilizing the Principles of Universal Design for Learning

Abstract

Written by Joanne Caniglia Ph.D. and Scott Courtney Ph.D., this issue of NASET’s Practical Teacher examines financial literacy resources and programs at the K-12 level that incorporate principles of Universal Design for Learning.  Six programs from financial institutions, non- and not-for-profit organizations, post-secondary institutions, and agencies of the federal government will be described from a sample of more than 150 resources.  Although many online resources exist, few include students with intellectual disabilities.  By utilizing Universal Design for Learning as a framework, these programs provide an illustration of learning for all students with multiple means of representation, engagement, and expression. A list of web resources is included with a criteria instrument from the Center of Assistive Technology.
