Scholarship Opportunity for College-Bound Students Who Have a Sibling with Autism
A child’s autism diagnosis affects every member of the family in different ways. For parents, the uncovered medical expenses, the time spent improving their child’s life, and the litany of other necessities for their child’s special needs is often uncontrollable. However, we sometimes forget to think about how their siblings have to adjust.
That’s why Knapp & Roberts is offering a $2,500 scholarship for college-bound kids who have a sibling with autism. Our firm wants to raise awareness for not only the children with autism, but the supporting family members as well.
