What to Expect After Your Child Is Accepted
We will schedule an intake meeting with your family to take place shortly before your child begins in our school. This provides an opportunity for your family to meet with the Family Services Coordinator, Clinical Director, and educational staff. We encourage you to share questions, concerns, and information with our team, and to discuss specific ways that we can support your child and family.
On the Day of Admission
If your child is moving into one of our community-based homes, your family will have the opportunity to visit the residence, unpack, and set up his or her room. We encourage you to bring any of your child’s personal belongings that are familiar and comforting, and to decorate the room so it reflects your child’s interests and personality.
We will work diligently to address your needs and concerns before, during, and after the move. We strive to make our residences feel warm and inviting and we want the students to feel like their residence is truly a home-away-from-home.
After your child’s first day at school, a member of our educational staff will call you to provide an update on his or her first day.
