SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) February 17, 2023
At the Law Office of David P. Shapiro, a San Diego criminal defense law firm, we are once again offering an educational scholarship in support of individuals who have been diagnosed with autism (autism spectrum disorder or ASD). The $1,000 scholarship award will be used to pay a portion of the tuition at a post-secondary school chosen by the successful applicant.
There are numerous challenges faced by people who have ASD. While every person is unique, challenges faced by autistic individuals may include, among others, sleep problems, depression, and in many cases, difficulty communicating with others. These issues continue to affect those with autism in early adulthood and beyond. The end result is that persons with ASD face difficulties in the areas of both education and employment.
Our firm is committed to providing opportunities to those with autism to continue their education beyond the high school level. We have offered an educational scholarship open to those with ASD nearly every year since 2017. It is the hope of the attorneys and staff at the firm that these scholarships provide an incentive for those with ASD to continue their education at a college, a university, graduate school, a junior college, or a trade/vocational school.
The process of applying for the scholarship is simple. It is open to anyone who has been diagnosed with ASD (DSM-V) who wishes to continue their education beyond the high school level.
