Question

If I believe I might be eligible for the program, but I do not know if I am and I do not have any paperwork for the eligibility process, what do I do?

Answer

If you had and Individual Education Program (IEP) during your time in school or attended Special Education classes or you receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) it is possible that you may be eligible. Your current or former school district may still have records. Our Eligiblity Specialist will request records from all known and available resources whom may have records. An administrative examination by a clinical psychologist scheduled by the Eligibility Specialist may be available to assist in this process if there is a lack of available records. We can help guide you through this process.
