A critical step in the success of ABLE accounts is the education of consumers and their advocates. A muti-faceted, multi-phased communication system is a necessity. As a parent, I know that it is very difficult to "hear" new information the first time it is shared, as well as how difficult it is for service providers to maintain currency with all the new opportunities which become available. Establishing straightforward PR materials which are shared universally will be a major step toward assuring access to families in need.
