The student’s eligibility for admission to various programs is assessed through a functional assessment.
For determining the eligibility of a student in a particular program, we conduct a:
1. Basic functional assessment, if the student has already submitted a recent (done within the last 1 year) assessment from a previous school/ center. It takes around 15-20 mins, and the admission eligibility can be ascertained and informed to the parents within 3 days.
2. Or an advanced functional assessment (if the parents do not have a recent assessment that can give complete details of the current skill level of the student.)
The advanced functional assessment takes around 1 to 1.5 hours, and a report is generated around one week after the assessment.
The eligibility for admission is established after the report is generated.
The program for which the student is eligible, is then informed to the parents.
In some occasional circumstances, in case the student is not found eligible for any of the programs (4 hours/ 6 hours/ 8 hours), we try to create a shorter, simpler, customized:
Early Intervention program (for younger students) or
a School readiness program (for older students).
Customized Early Intervention/ School Readiness Program:
In this program, the students are supposed to enroll for a 2 hour daily program, for a period ranging from 3 months to 1 year.
Here, the students are accompanied by their parents everyday, and the activity planner is made according to the skill level of the student. This kind of program helps the student to get used to the school environment, its culture, the structure and schedules etc, in a shorter, simpler way, that is customized as per the strengths, interests and needs of that student.
Gradually, the student can feel comfortable with the everyday activities.
Assessments are done once, every 3 months to assess the eligibility of the student for a regular 4 hour/ 6 hour/ 8 hour program (ELC/ ican/ VTC).
Once the student is ready, the student is enrolled for a regular program.
