We are able to work with individuals to accept funds through DDS. We also work with some school districts who have contracted with us to perform the home portion of IEP services (if included). We also accept private pay. We are willing to work with various funding sources in order to assist the family in covering our services.
Wait list times vary on hours and locations requested. If we don’t have a staff in the area after the intake process is completed we will hire for that staff. Oftentimes waits can be anywhere from 4-8 weeks.
In order to get started we will send you an intake form and a schedule of availability through DocuSign. We will also ask that you send us a current behavior plan, IEP, and/or physical. It will take us about a week to review the paperwork. From there we will schedule an in person or zoom intake to discuss the individual and service needs. There is a one time intake fee added to the first invoice of every individual to account for the intake time and for individuals who don’t go forward with services there is no charge.
