Levels of Support
The New Directions Program has expanded its services with the introduction of Levels of Support.

Students move through the appropriate levels receiving the best services possible while moving toward completion of a degree at a local college or university, building a career and learning to live independently.

Students can:

Retain a familiar support system as they student progresses toward their career and independence

Tax Deductibility
In accordance with IRS Regulation 1.213-1(e)(1)(v)(a) a medical deduction is allowed for the cost of tuition when a school meets the definition of a "special school" for physically or mentally handicapped individuals. The definition of a "special school" is a school where the primary purpose of the school is to enable students to compensate for handicaps in order to prepare them for future normal education and/or normal living.

The program at New Directions meets this definition, as its primary goal is to assist students in earning a degree in college and with developing skills necessary for employment and living independently in the community. Applicants considering deducting New Directions tuition on their federal income tax returns should consult with a tax advisor on this matter.

Social Security Income
Program costs may be partially defrayed through S.S.I. payments that some students are eligible for. We encourage students to apply for these prior to admission.

Insurance Reimbursements
New Directions, upon request, will provide a statement of clinical sessions to submit to insurance company for reimbursement.
