Self–Direction empowers enrolled individuals to choose services and supports that work the best for them.

Additional Resources for Summer Aid:

With financial planning and assistance, there are many ways to help ensure your special needs child can attend the summer camp of their choice.

The following resources are to help you if you chose to register for Tech Kids Unlimited’s Summer program.

  • Please note you may be able to write off program costs from your taxes. More helpful info regarding this can be found here. Please talk to a financial advisor, accountant, or special needs lawyer for further assistance. We are happy to provide receipts if you need them.
  • If your family member has a developmental disability you can ask about a financial aid program called “Family Reimbursement” (see listings here).
  • Every Borough has a Family Support Guide created by the Borough’s Developmental Disability Consumer Council (you can find each online) which will also contain those programs. Search for “Fraternal Organizations”. Sometimes these charitable organizations help. Some examples are Lions Clubs, Elks Clubs, Knights of Columbus, Knights of Pythias, Kiwanis, Rotary Clubs.
