The path to financial empowerment

Making Money Easy was developed by Participate Australia to support children, teens and adults with mild to moderate intellectual disability to learn basic counting and money handling skills. It teaches financial basics through to more complex transactions in a modular format that enables each section to build on what was learned in the previous section.

The program is designed to be fun and engaging to promote learning and reward achievement and is delivered in a safe, unintimidating online environment. Ultimately, participants are encouraged to improve their economic participation and become more independent in their daily lives by being able to go shopping or pay a bill.
