New Student Enrollment
Finding the right school for your child is important and can be overwhelming. There are decisions to be made about which school to choose, which programs are the best, and how to fund your child’s education. At Autism Academy, we are here to help you through the process and answer any questions you may have. Typically, our admissions process involves the following steps:
Complete The Application
– Complete the online application and submit along with the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and $30 application fee. A member of our staff will notify you of the application status and to schedule a tour.
Schedule A Tour
– A tour of one of our campuses is the best way to gather initial information about our schools. Tours include an overview of the school, our mission and philosophy, a run-through of a typical school day, a review of the programs available, and details about the admissions process.
Student Interview And Observation
– If your child is a qualified candidate for our program, AAED will set up a meeting with the family during which time a student interview and placement test will be conducted. The student interview also allows you to discuss your child’s history, ask any questions that were not addressed during the initial tour, and discuss funding options. After the student interview and placement test, AAED will review the information to determine how to best meet the your child’s needs.
– Once placement has been determined by AAED, the parent will complete the process by signing into the parent portal to fill out enrollment paperwork, review the student handbook, and pay the enrollment fee. Once funding for tuition has been verified, your child is placed in a class or on the wait-list. For tuition schedule and information on funding, please visit our Tuition & Funding Page.
