How We Can Help

At the Acacia Center, we can help you navigate the process of obtaining the Jon Peterson Scholarship by assisting you in understanding and completing the process. We can work with you and your child’s school to develop an Individualized Education Program (IEP). If you already have an IEP, we can assist you in the application process and help you complete necessary paperwork within the program’s timelines.
