Is your child home-schooled?
Arizona’s newly formed ESA program can provide funds for those in need of speech therapy services
The Empowerment Scholarship Account program is administered by the Arizona Department of Education and funded by the state. The program gives parents the freedom to choose the best education for their child. Within the program, Parents can use ESA dollars to pay for their child’s needs related to speech therapy services.
The average ESA amount is $5,000. A student with special needs receives a higher amount based on the student’s IEP eligibility category.
Parents receive the ESA funds on a pre-paid debit card and must complete an expense report quarterly.
Students cannot receive School Tuition Organization (STO) tax credit scholarships while participating in the Empowerment Scholarship Account Program.
