Supporting Our Community Funding


Classroom Grants

      
How has your back to school transition gone?  Is there anything your teacher is needing to help them better serve your student with autism?  
Sensory fidgets?  Classroom materials?  Educational toys?

We are here to improve the lives of ALL affected by autism.  

We want to help our teachers help their students.   We know that students with autism sometimes require specialized motivators or even additional classroom materials.    We also know that sometimes budgets are tight.

Therefore we are announcing the...                                                                     
Autism Society of Nebraska's Classroom Grants! 

Thanks to the Nebraska community rallying around the Autism Puzzle Walk we are able to reinvest those dollars into our Supporting Our Community Grant Program.  We are thrilled to be able to make an impact directly on the front lines of our schools!   Apply soon before the funds have all been awarded!
