GROUP PROGRAM REGISTRATION PERIODS
To better accommodate our programming and prepare our team for incoming participants and families, we now have
registration periods for our group programs. It is important that you note the registration deadline and its corresponding
start date as this will determine when your child will begin attending the program.
Please indicate from the list below which days you’d like your child to attend.
NEW CHANGE from previous years, the program ends at 6:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 7:30 p.m. on Fridays.
Please see attached Parent Handbook with Daily Focus descriptions to best choose participation days for your child.
Prior to turning in your child’s registration form, we highly encourage you to contact your county case manager for approval of the service hours listed above. Without approval, we cannot guarantee that your child will have the allotted hours available in their budget to participate in all registered days.
ADDITIONALLY – We must receive an updated authorization for services from your child’s caseworker prior to the start of services (even if they have been receiving ongoing services). If we have not received an authorization of services prior to the indicated program start date (listed above,) we will be unable to provide the services registered for until we have received the authorization. Once the authorization is received, your child will be on the schedule the following Monday. We highly encourage you to be in contact with your county caseworker to ensure there is no lapse in services.
If medications will need to be given, a letter and form will be sent out for you to complete prior to your child starting group program services. Please inform your child’s ABLE Program Director immediately if your child has any major changes to their medications.
During community outings, we find that having participants wear an ABLE t-shirt allows for us to easily identify everyone.
Please indicate your child’s shirt size below so that we may have the attire available.
Please write down any information that you feel would be helpful for us to know about your child this school year. This could be new preferences, likes, dislikes, and/or medical/health updates, changes to family environments, etc.
ACKNOWLEDGMENT & AGREEMENT
Once your child has been accepted, you will be required to sign an acknowledgment/photo-release agreement with your program director.
