The Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Program at Imagine! is currently looking for individuals to enroll in the program with a funding start date of July 1, 2017. Now is the time to register your child to be considered for enrollment for the July 2017 through June 2018 fiscal year.
The ASD Program is a 3-year program that provides funding for individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis to access therapeutic services such as Behavior Therapy, Psychological and Counseling Services, Social Integration Activities, Equipment recommended by medical professionals, etc. The program funding for the new fiscal year is as follows: 1st year-$5,000, 2nd year-$5,000, and 3rd year-$4,000.
In order to be eligible for the program, individuals must have a medical diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder, must live in Boulder County (there is currently a small Broomfield County Pilot Project with a waiting list), be over 5 years old and under 26 years old, and live at home with his or her parents or guardian (those over 18 living independently may request an exemption to this requirement). Please note that if an individual is eligible for or receiving other services funded by the Colorado Division for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities through Imagine! (such as Family Support Services, or a waiver) they would not qualify for enrollment in the ASD Program.
