Project Title
Scholarship Program for disadvantaged children with Autism
Assisting Sick and Abused Children
Hoffman Estates, IL

The Autism Spectrum & Developmental Disorders Resource Center helps families navigate the complex world of services and treatments for children from economically challenged families. Social deficits remain one of the most difficult challenges for children with Autism disorders, especially for those with average or above average cognitive skills. This grant provides scholarships so that these children can participate in the Social Wellness or Social Success Groups which would otherwise be closed to them. (Medicaid will not pay for these social group sessions.)
