I understand that the Support For Students Growth Center (S.S.G.C.) strives to help as many clients as they can. However, I understand that not all applicants are accepted for services. I understand that the S.S.G.C will use the application information to assess my child’s needs for the purposes of evaluating their abilities and needs and determining placement and service options. Recommendation and approval of my child for services provided by the S.S.G.C is at the discretion of the S.S.G.C administrative team.
Group Attendance: Social Skills groups rely on student’s regular attendance for all members to make optimal progress. It affects the whole group whenever a participant is absent, so please try to be as consistent as possible. Please keep in mind that we are reserving your child’s spot in group and are staffing and adjusting our curriculum accordingly, whether he/she is able to make it or not.
Families will not be issued a refund or credit for any missed group dates*.
(*If a student misses a group, we may offer a make-up, however, they will be limited to no greater than (1 credit per 4 groups purchased), regardless of reason for absence).
If your child misses group, we will provide a brief review of the material covered during the following group session. Additionally, we are happy to send you the “Weekly Topic Summary” for the session that was missed so that you may review it with your child.
Refund Policy: All payments, including initial assessments and deposits, are non-refundable. Refunds will not be given for withdrawals or dismissals after a session has begun. If a child engages in conduct which is harmful, dangerous, or extremely disruptive to the overall conduct of the program or the personnel of S.S.G.C., we reserve the right to dismiss the child, and a prorated refund may be offered.
Communication with Our Office: Our office provides friendly text reminders of group and individual appointments as a courtesy, so please make sure we have your most recent cell phone number on file. Please note that whether or not you receive a reminder, your child’s group will occur based on the published schedule (we follow the Palm Beach County School District calendar) unless we contact you to cancel or to inform you of a change. Once your child is enrolled in our group program, we encourage you to contact the office with questions or concerns and we will coordinate follow through with their group counselors. You can contact the office at (561) 990-7305.
Information on Other Services: Every child is unique in his/her needs and response to interventions. Our groups are designed to facilitate optimal growth for each child; however, generalization of skills will vary. In order to maximize opportunities for each child, partnerships between all parties are crucial. We encourage our families to schedule periodic individual/family appointments and school/teacher consultations. These provide excellent opportunities for everyone involved in your child's “team” to develop skills needed to implement strategies outside of our office, thus helping your child to generalize skills learned in the groups. To assist in this matter, Dr. Nach is available for school or office consultations, individual/family appointments, and school observations/meetings. These service is separate from your child’s Social Skills Programs (and other groups conducted by the S.S.G.C.).
