School & Clinic Enrollment
Thank you for your interest in Beyond the Spectrum!
Our Enrollment Process
If you would like to be added to our Waitlist for educational services, please fill out the Initial Intake Packet found below. These documents are used to pre-emptively give our Program Directors more information about your student in order to determine the most appropriate classroom for his or her needs and abilities. Filling out an Intake Packet is not a guarantee for immediate placement into a classroom, but having your information on file allows us to keep in contact when there is appropriate availability! Once your packet has been completely filled out, please scan it to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to (941)-527-0526.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to enroll?
There is no concrete time frame for classrooms opening up when your packet is submitted; however, if you are contacted for a tour and assessment, the enrollment process after a tour can take two to four weeks if there is availability. In the meantime, we will be in touch as soon as there is an opening for your student, and we appreciate your patience!
When do tours and assessments happen?
Tours will be scheduled for families as soon as our Program Directors find availability in the classroom best fit for your student. During this tour, a Program Director will assess your student's academic, socio-emotional, and behavioral skills to ensure that we are able to properly serve his or her needs.
Do you have transportation?
Beyond the Spectrum does not offer a transportation service to or from the school, except for field trips in our bus. However, some of our students utilize the Breeze Transit, formally known as the SCAT Plus Bus system. You can learn more about this serviced provided by Sarasota County here.
Funding and Tuition
We are excited to announce the initiation of a Beyond the Spectrum Family Fund that can assist qualified families with a portion of their service costs. More details will be shared soon as we finalize the paperwork. This is all made possible through the Louis & Margery Barancik Foundation, and we are beyond grateful for their support!
