Step 2- New students only
After a review of the paperwork, we will call to schedule a meeting with our SLP. The child is expected to attend this play-based, informal session. This brief session will help us further determine eligibility. If, at this point, the child is NOT accepted for enrollment by us, the previously-paid registration fee is non-refundable, but the previously-paid tuition will be refunded. If eligibility is uncertain and cannot be fully determined, we may grant a trial enrollment.
The following limitations apply:
- Cognitive skills- Should be at or near age-appropriate level, as determined by a psychologist (exceptions may be granted when cognitive scores are greatly impacted by communication abilities)
- Negative Behaviors- Children who exhibit severe behaviors (outside the norm of typical communication frustrations), may be better served in a different setting and therefore, denied acceptance.
- Communication Skills- Any level of communication skills can be accommodated.
- Sensory Needs- We are prepared to deal with sensory needs within the learning environment and have an OT on hand for consult and direct therapy. Please contact us with specific concerns.
