Autism Scholarship Program and John Peterson Special Needs Scholarship Program
Your child may be eligible for a scholarship under the Autism Scholarship Program or the Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship Program to attend a special education program that implements the child's individualized education program and that is operated by an alternative public provider or by a registered private provider.
Autism Scholarship Program
The Autism Scholarship Program (ASP) gives the parents of children with autism who qualify for a scholarship the choice to send the child to a special education program other than the one operated by the school district of residence to receive their education and the services outlined in the child's individualized education program (IEP). Section 3310.41 of the Revised Code establishes the ASP and requires the Ohio Department of Education to adopt rules prescribing procedures to implement the program.
