To begin the referral process, please send the following to the admissions office:

      • Recent educational testing, including a cognitive assessment and academic achievement testing.
      • Pertinent school records, i.e., current IEP.
      • A psychological evaluation or neuro- psychological evaluation.
      • Hospitalization discharge reports, if any.


    1.

a. If the student is an appropriate candidate, parents will receive confirmation of a diagnostic placement.
