Crotched Mountain Foundation has unveiled a new scholarship program for families of young children with autism. Crotched Mountain’s Ready Set Connect autism center provides ABA services to children in a group setting with a focus on school readiness and the development of life skills. Parent training is also a component of the services. Ready Set Connect currently operates centers in Manchester, Concord, and Greenfield, NH.
The Ready Set Connect Scholarship has been established to support families who have private insurance that does not cover autism treatment and who are not eligible for Medicaid. For qualifying families who are selected to receive the funding, the scholarship can cover up to six months of Ready Set Connect services.
The length and provision of these services may depend on approved treatment hours and enrollment availability at the respective location. Crotched Mountain in turn will offer up to an additional six months of services at no cost to the families.
Funding for the scholarship came from a June charitable volleyball tournament held at the Akwa Marina Yacht Club in Laconia, NH.
