The SSES program is a unique opportunity for eligible students with cognitive or complex disabilities to receive a $1500 credit for the family/caregivers to use to contract directly with service providers or for educational resources. We are looking for Texas based businesses to join the SSES marketplace where SSES students and their families will shop for these products and services.

Service Providers are needed in the following areas

 

Therapists: For providers of a form of therapy that is licensed in Texas (for example, speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy), a copy of your valid, active Texas license is required. 
For forms of therapy not licensed in Texas, (for example, equine/horse therapy) please submit your credentials and a decision will be made on a case-by-case basis.

Tutor - Core Subject: This category is for providers who have a valid state teaching credential. Examples of core subject tutoring include but are not limited to math, science, reading, language arts, and social studies. Application requires a copy of your valid and active state teaching credential.
