CSD Learns hosted a webinar on February 22, 2023, with National Association of State Treasurers (NAST) focused on introducing ABLE accounts and how it benefits the deaf and hard of hearing community. This webinar was hosted in part of the partnership announcement between CSD Learns and NAST earlier in the month on the creation of a webcast video explaining ABLE accounts in American Sign Language.

The webinar was hosted by Eric Ochmanek, Program Director of ABLE today, and Megan Klusza, on the behalf of CSD Learns. Eric and Megan covered the basics of ABLE accounts and showed clips of the 29-minute webcast*. They also answered live questions from the audience. The goal of this event was to provide information to individuals with disabilities, their families, and professionals who support them.  

*The webcast is available with Spanish subtitles.  

What are ABLE accounts? 

Created by the federal government in 2014, ABLE accounts are tax-advantaged savings accounts that allow individuals with disabilities to save for qualified disability expenses without affecting their eligibility for government benefits. Funds in an ABLE account are tax-free and can be used for a variety of expenses related to the individual’s disability.  

How to Qualify and Get an ABLE Account 

Individuals must have a disability that occurred before the age of 26 to be eligible for an ABLE account. It must be a long term disability and in addition, one of the following criteria must be met: 

(1) you are eligible to receive SSI or SSDI; 

(2) you have a condition on the SSA’s List of Compassionate Allowances Conditions;  

OR 

(3) you have a written diagnosis from a doctor* 

*Taken from https://www.abletoday.org/faqs 

When ready, choose a state program and open an account through the program’s website. To get started, go to NAST’s website and choose your state for the next steps.

Workshop Recap: “Be a BO$$ With Your Finances”

(part of the Financial Education Workshop Series)

It’s no secret that when it comes to discussing financial topics, many women feel uncomfortable. In fact, according to a recent study by Merril Lynch, 61% of women would rather discuss death than finances. But pushing these conversations to the wayside can be detrimental for your finances—the same study also said 41% of women wish they had done more investing.

In honor of Women’s History Month, CSD Learns presented a workshop series hosted by Roxann Richards and full of female financial experts to kickstart these discussions on popular topics like tax season and stimulus checks, the pandemic’s influence on the real estate market, and all the hype surrounding Bitcoin.

Each week, Roxann was joined by financial experts, ready to equip everybody with the knowledge that leads to financial freedom. Ready to be a Bo$$ with your finances? Check out the video recordings of each workshop below!

Henderson and Bradi bring insights from their experiences working with college students and high school graduates in the community.

They’ll also offer tips and favorite resources for best filling in those gaps.

Workshop Recap: “Rise up! Black Deaf Businesses Surviving in the Pandemic”

(part of the Financial Education Workshop Series)

The ongoing pandemic has had a grave impact on small businesses all over the world. In the US, Black business owners have faced an even more heightened struggle; the Federal Reserve Bank has reported that the number of active Black-owned small businesses declined 41% between February to April 2020! What does that mean for Black Deaf-owned businesses in our community?

In this four-part workshop series, CSD Learns’ Jazzy Jones guided viewers through the history of finance and the impact it has on the Black community in the post-slavery period, as well as how the current pandemic continues to affect Black-owned businesses.

Throughout the series, we’ve had the opportunity to spotlight Black Deaf entrepreneurs by inviting them to share how their businesses have been affected or sustained during this challenging time. Want to learn more?

An Educator Webinar: Using CSD Learns Toolkits

Do your students have the tools to keep safe on the internet? Unfortunately, most people have very limited access to training about best practices for protecting themselves on the web. In fact, 77% of US/UK survey respondents say they've never been offered cybersecurity curriculum at any level. Studies show that Gen Z is the least engaged in cybersecurity, despite spending over 4 hours a day online. And many deaf students don’t have a deaf adult at home to talk them through the basics.

That’s why CSD Learns created “Developing Your Cybersense,” a toolkit that supports teachers in educating their students about cybersecurity. “Developing Your Cybersense” is available as a PDF or in Google Slides, and is flexibly designed to be used as little or as much as you like.

With special guests Dr. Mei Kennedy, an Instructional Designer for online learning, and CSD’s own ITS Operational Manager, Amanda Whyrick, M.S. we took a deep dive on what you need to know about teaching and practicing cybersecurity, and learned about the profession itself.

Cybersecurity—It’s More Than Just Hackers

Hollywood has made some blockbusters about big-time hackers trying to take down the federal government. In reality, large-scale hacking is a small piece of the cybersecurity puzzle. Cybersecurity encompasses a wide range of practices and safeguards, everything from traditional firewalls, to creating strong passwords, even cyberbullying!

Cybersecurity is a part of STEM

Cybersecurity draws on a variety of skillsets, including computer hardware and software knowledge, as well as operating systems, networking, and sometimes even coding. This means discussions about cybersecurity can fit into any science or technology classroom. The sooner students have access to knowledge about good cybersecurity practices, the sooner they can form their own good habits in their increasingly cloud-based worlds.

The Future of Education is Now

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed nearly every sector of our society, and education is no exception. Now more than ever, teachers are relying on technology to connect with students, but most teachers report that they’ve had no formal training on how to best protect the devices from which they teach. With one in five districts saying they’ll continue a fully online learning option after the pandemic is over, it’s clear that remote learning is here to stay.

Cybersecurity Experts are In-Demand

Did you know that the field of cybersecurity has had a 0% unemployment rate since 2011? Getting your students interested in an ever-growing industry could help them carve out a successful career path for the future.
