In 2016, DSOSN received a grant from Small Steps in Speech towards our Speech Therapy Program.

However, as of November 2, 2016, they are no longer accepting grant applications from organizations.  Therefore, DSOSN can no longer apply.

Their grant application process is now only open to individuals; so any parent can apply on behalf of their child ages 3 to 22.  You can also apply for more than one child but you must submit applications separately for each one.

Small Steps in Speech is based out of New Jersey but they award grants in all 50 United States.

The next deadline to apply is May 1, 2017.  If approved, you will notified within 60 days.  Applicants can apply one time per calendar.  Grants are not based solely on financial need.  The financial needs of the family are considered, however, applications will not be accepted for a join family income in excess of $125,000.
