In Florida there are three basic scholarships that are available to autism spectrum children.

  • PLSA Gardiner Scholarship is for children with one of nine specific disabilities or limitations.  Children are eligible from 3 years old through high school graduation.  Scholarship awards are based on the child’s age and county of residence.
  • McKay Scholarship: Any child with an IEP or 504 Accommodation is eligible if they were enrolled in public school the year prior. Scholarship awards are based on the cost of services that a child would have received in public school.
  • Step up for Students Income Based Scholarship is designed to allow low income families more educational choices.
