ATAP is an assistance program and the monthly allotment is intended to help parents pay for treatment. It is understood by the funding provided by ATAP will not pay for all of the recommended hours of treatment or the Plan hourly requirement. It is our hope that parents can help to fund additional hours of treatment. However ATAP recognizes not all parents can afford to do so.
This program is unique because it gives families the freedom to chose the provider and employees who will provide services to their children. Not only do families pick the employees who will work with their child, but they hire them and oversee them.

No two brain injuries are alike. The physical, cognitive, and behavioral impairments resulting from the injury are unique to each person and may require on- going intensive treatment throughout the individual’s lifetime. Because of the sudden and often devastating effects of brain injury, long term care and service plans are usually not covered by insurance and/or deductibles are not affordable. Exhausted funds can slow improvement.
Services include evaluations, vocational rehabilitation, counseling, vocational training, and adaptive aids/technology assistance. A substantial visual impairment that effects a person’s employability is the criteria for eligibility.
