The Intake Process

Initial Call

When you call the school, the Director will complete an initial intake form and set an appointment for you to tour the school.

 

The Tour

During the tour you will have plenty of time to ask questions and receive an application packet.

 

Clinical Visit

After you return the application packet with a $500 application fee, a family consultant will call you to schedule a clinical visit, without your child. During this visit, test results, professional assessments, report cards, health records and any other relevant information about your child will be discussed.

 

Observation

If appropriate, the Harris School teacher arranges to observe your child in his or her current school placement.

 

Child Visit

A visit is arranged with your child, The Harris School teacher and the family consultant. The teacher will engage your child in a short activity (a play activity for the young child; an academic activity for the older child).

 

Decision

The Director, the Family Consultant and the teacher meet to discuss your child. If it is determined that the school’s program could be helpful to your child, a transition plan is created, including a start date!
