In response to the unique and challenging school year, Gov. DeWine’s Children’s Initiative and the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities funded the launch of Learning Aid Ohio,
a program to support students learning with disabilities. Learning Aid Ohio exists to subsidize the cost to hire tutors, aides, or in-home providers who can provide learning support for students on Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) or Section 504 Plans.
Learning Aid Ohio’s Summer Program awards eligible students $2,000 to hire Learning Providers between June 1st – September 30th.
To qualify families must:
- Have a student learning on an IEP or Section 504 Plan
- Be experiencing financial hardship
- Apply by May 15, 2021 at LearningOhio.com
This is also a great summer employment opportunity for your educators!
