A Different Scholarship for Different Needs
The Jon Peterson Special Needs (JPSN) Scholarship Program provides scholarships to students who are eligible to attend kindergarten through 12th grade and have an Individualized Education Program (IEP) from their district. The scholarship awards up to $7000/year for speech therapy which can target goals for cognition, social skills, receptive and expressive language and Alternative and Augented Communication (AAC).
School-aged children often have difficulties with language, articulation, sequencing ideas, self-regulation, auditory precessing, vocabulary, symbolic thought, cognition, social skills, and engaging and relating to peers and teachers.
Speech therapy addresses these areas with customized therapy unique to your child's needs and interests, with respect for the individual's unique strengths and challenges.
I include the whole family in therapy whenever possible: siblings, grandparents, caregivers, etc., as this has resulted in the greatest and most meaningful changes in children's development.
For children who are not ready to attend school, are not potty trained, and have difficulty with self-regulation outside the home, the Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship offers a way to receive hours of therapy per week at no cost to parents.
