Additional costs may be incurred for some community inclusion outings but will be optional and paid before services are provided.

All other behaviors will be evaluated and have a 90 day probationary period to determine if we can serve them safely and effectively. Due to smaller ratio guidelines, there may be a wait-list for levels we can serve at any given time.
