RISP receives funding from a variety of sources, including state and local dollars through the Community Services Board. RISP also receives funding from other state and local agencies, civic groups, individuals, and organizations.
Additional funding comes from Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), so there is never a charge to a family for some services, such as a child's developmental screening, evaluation, plan development, or service coordination.
RISP is licensed as an outpatient rehabilitation program and charges a fee for direct physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. Most health insurance will cover part or all of the cost of these services.
Income Based Pay
If the cost of RISP services would be a hardship to any family, our agency can use a statewide sliding fee scale to reduce the charges to the family based on its income and need. No family is ever denied services because of inability to pay.
