The Massachusetts Developmental Disabilities Council Empowerment Funds provides a limited number of scholarships to eligible participants after attending the Parent Consultant Training Institute (PCTI). Individuals with developmental disabilities and family members / guardians of individuals with developmental disabilities may be eligible for PCTI tuition reimbursement totaling up to $250. Additionally, those receiving the MDDC scholarship MUST complete a mandatory Follow-Up Survey to receive tuition reimbursement.

A “developmental disability” is broadly defined as a severe, chronic, often lifelong disability that causes substantial limitations in several major life activities such as: self-care, receptive and expressive language, learning, mobility, self-direction, the capacity for independent living, and economic self-sufficiency. A developmental disability is attributable to a mental, emotional, sensory, and/or physical impairment that is apparent before the age of twenty-two.

Scholarship availability is limited. Please click on this link to learn more about how to apply for Massachusetts Developmental Disabilities Council Empowerment Funds.
