Due to ASK's lack of funding sources to support our trainings, ASK is required to charge training participant fees to recoup our costs for qualified trainers, travel, printing of information etc. Please find below a few options for families who need financial assistance to cover the cost of the training.
Local Service Organizations:
Contact your local Lions Club, Kiwanis, or disability-specific organization. These groups may have training funds available for families.
Family & Caregiver Support Training Fund through Waivers:
Funds may be available through the Autism, DD and Support Services Waivers. Contact your case manager to see if these funds are available through your child's waiver.
Special Education: Contact your child’s Director of Special Education. There may be funds available for parent/family training.
Governor's Planning Council:
Training funds for family members or persons with disabilities are available through the Consumer Involvement Fund. These funds are generally used for larger trainings and conferences. For application guidelines, please visit www.in.gov/gpcpd.
