GREENFIELD, NH–Crotched Mountain Foundation has been awarded a $60,000 grant from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation to support Crotched Mountain’s Ready Set Connect autism program. The center-based program brings together children with autism for an educational experience that blends group learning with individualized teaching. The grant will allow for continued expansion of the service areas and programs.
With locations in Concord, Manchester and Greenfield, Ready Set Connect provides a setting where young children with autism will improve social, communication, motor and other skills through intensive Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA). While building social and personal relationships, teachers track and record each child’s progress.
“We are incredibly excited about the opportunity to reach even more families throughout New Hampshire,” said Michael Coughlin, President and CEO of Crotched Mountain Foundation. “This grant from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation will allow Ready Set Connect to grow its services and help even more children with autism gain the skills to find success in school, at home, and in the community.”
