Learning For Life Academy is committed to helping children with autism and related disabilities receive the most effective education, thereby allowing each child to reach his or her full potential.
Our intensive educational program is conducted year round. The students spend their day in a one-to-one or small group student-teacher ratio , thereby combining highly intensive, individualized programming with frequent opportunities for facilitated social interaction.The teachers are continuously monitored and trained on a regular basis by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and certified Special Education Teacher. Such a labor-intensive program is expensive. Learning For Life Academy’s intensive ABA school based program costs between $25,000 to $35,000 per year. Although this is an enormous amount it is still a fraction of the cost for full time, lifelong care for a dependent adult with special needs. It is our belief that early intensive intervention will reduce the potential life long cost to families and more importantly set the student up for success as an adult!
Florida’s school choice programs ensure that no child will be left behind by allowing parents to choose the best educational setting—public or private—for their child. The McKay Scholarships for Students with Disabilities Program provided over 26,000 Florida students with special needs the opportunity to attend a participating private school during the 2012-13 school year. The McKay Scholarships Program also offers parents public school choice. A parent of an eligible special needs student may choose to transfer the student to another public school.
The PLSA is different than other state scholarships in that it allows parents to personalize the education of their children with unique abilities by directing money toward a combination of programs and approved providers. These include schools, therapists, specialists, curriculum, technology—even a college savings account. It is a great option for those looking for special education scholarships in Tampa, FL. You can not use McKay and PLSA at the same time.
