Teach 21st Century Financial Skills with Bankability

first days

Teach money skills this year with Digitability!

Financial literacy skills are critical for independence. For students with Autism and other intellectual disabilities, it will take explicit, intentional instruction in these skills. Bankability, the online virtual banking system by Digitability, provides students with disabilities the experience of an online banking application. Bankability offers students the opportunity to make purchases, pay bills, and transfer money from checking to savings all from their online account. 

Keep scrolling to download a free sample activity to help students with Autism and other disabilities develop an understanding of the responsibilities that come with making their own financial decisions. Students will practice reviewing bill payments, purchases, and checking their accounts for any errors.

In addition to basic banking responsibilities, students will learn numerous workplace readiness skills in the following areas: 

Digital Literacy - Students will explore the functional skills that apply to online banking. Bankability provides students with an online banking experience allowing them to pay bills, make purchases, and manage their savings.

Social Skills - This practical, critical thinking activity, encourages a number of social skills such as following directions, defending your ideas, evaluating the claims of others, decision making and more.

Communication - Expressive and receptive language skills are strengthened as students answer questions about banking practices and support their reasoning. Resources are differentiated to accommodate a wide-range of communication and language needs.

Transition - Following the Digitability Work-ready framework, this Workplace Connection Activity provides students opportunities to collaborate with peers, problem-solve, and apply financial literacy skills.

Financial Literacy - Students can start developing initial financial literacy skills using our Banking Responsibilities Workplace Connection Activity. In this activity, students explore the importance of responsible banking practices.
