Why is a social skills intake interview required, and why does it cost $30?
In order to maintain our highest standards of quality, we require that you and your child meet personally with our Education Director, who is a Licensed Behavior Analyst, to determine whether your child is a fit for the program as well as whether our program is a good fit for your child and family. There is a non-refundable intake fee of $30 charged for this process. If it is decided we are not a good fit for each other, the fee has paid for your consultation.
Do you accept health insurance or Medicaid?
No. Medicaid and/or health insurance typically do not cover our services as they are considered educational in nature, not medical or therapeutic. We recommend checking with your insurance plan to confirm whether or not they would consider any reimbursement to you for our services. We would be happy to provide you with a receipt for services if you want to submit an insurance claim on your own or perhaps use funds from a Flex account.
Do you offer scholarships or flexible payment plans?
Social Motion is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that seeks grant funds as well as donations from individuals and foundations to offer services to families, regardless of their ability to pay. Scholarships, partial pay subsidies, or flex payment plans may be available depending on our current funding levels and on your level of financial need. Please call 713-461-7200 for more information or to submit a need-based statement for consideration.
Do you offer payment terms?
Yes, for most long-term classes, monthly payment options are available.
Are you able to pick up my child from school or transport them to events?
No, due to liability reasons, we are not able to transport students. Parents, or students of driving age, are responsible for their own transportation to class and to all related events or activities.
What does it mean to be on a “waitlist”?
As we seek to offer classes for new age groups or time slots, sometimes we make a list of interested parties. When we have enough students to make a group, we will do so and inform those who patiently waited. If current classes are full, we will place you on a waitlist until a spot becomes available.
