The Federation for Children with Special Needs now administers the Massachusetts Developmental Disabilities Council Empowerment Funds for the Parent Consultant Training Institute (PCTI). Individuals with developmental disabilities and family members / guardians of individuals with developmental disabilities may be eligible for PCTI scholarship totaling up to $250.

A “developmental disabilityā€¯ 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.

If you would like to apply, click “yes” on the PCTI Registration Form and the scholarship will automatically be applied to your registration. However, you MUST complete the mandatory Follow-Up Survey upon conclusion of the course in order to retain the award.
