Some of the ways that an ABLE account can help foster independence in your special needs child/adult, is it gives them access to “their” own money so they can supplement their monthly expenses. For example: money for transportation, medical co-pays, also prescriptions. This gives them a sense of personal freedom, that can only come from taking care of your own immediate financial needs. Not having to ask for help can give anyone a feeling of personal satisfaction, especially a person with a disability who has had to rely on others most of their lives. Being an included, and productive member of society is what we want for our children, and an ABLE account can be one of the tools to help get them there.
