[Past Event] What the Future Looks Like for Those with Intellectual Disabilities

Individuals with intellectual disabilities are up against a lot right now. Apart from being more susceptible to COVID, some services that aid those with intellectual disabilities, such as speech or behavioral therapy, have either been suspended altogether or moved online, which can become especially challenging for some to access. Join Worth for an intimate discussion on how the pandemic has brought on more challenges for people with intellectual disabilities and how organizations are working to meet these challenges, as well as how this could lead to positive change for those with intellectual disabilities and what helpful innovations could come out of this time.

Guest Speakers: Amanda Lukof, SVP of Hope Trust, Kayla McKeon, Manager of Grassroots Advocacy for the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS), Jim McCann, Founder of 1-800-FLOWERS, and Kathleen Entwistle, Private Wealth Advisor at Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management / Moderated by: Juliet Scott-Croxford, CEO of Worth
