Missouri lawmakers have approved legislation that would require education officials to seek grants and donations to help children with special needs such as autism.
Financial resources could be devoted to scholarships or clinical trials for behavioral interventions. Scholarships could be used to help students attend a public school outside the student's home district or a private school.
In a press release Friday, the University of Missouri Department of Intercollegiate Athletics announced it’s secured a pledge of $6.4 million over the next ten years toward its Tiger Scholarship fund. The donors asked to remain anonymous.
