(Scholarship applications are for an individual child living in the State of Ohio)
Special Kids Therapy is proud to offer scholarships to financially support children with special health needs and their families with the cost of non-traditional therapies or activities that are not covered by insurance. We encourage all families, regardless of financial status, to apply for our special needs scholarship. Our scholarships would not be possible without the donations of our friends and supporters.
Scholarships are not intended for everyday medical expenses, medical needs, insurance premiums, prescription costs, or schooling. They are intended for outside experiences and activities that enrich the life of the child.
