Enrollment Fee

An enrollment fee is due before every child begins attending the Marian Hope Center.  This includes children who will receive therapy services and as well as those considered to be peer models.  The enrollment fee covers the cost of materials, snacks, supplies, etc., but does not include the cost of any therapy services provided during the classes and cannot be billed to insurance companies, Medicaid, MO First Steps, or the KCRO Autism Project.  For the 2018-2019 session (Aug 20 – May 24), the enrollment fees are as follows:

3-hour class enrollment fee = $250

2.5-hour class enrollment fee = $200

2-hour class enrollment fee = $150

1.5-hour class enrollment fee = $125

1-hour class enrollment fee = $100

If you are enrolling your child in more than one class, you are responsible for only one enrollment fee, that required for the longest class (e.g., if your child will attend a 3-hour class and a 1-hour class, you are expected to pay only the fee for the 3-hour class).  In order to reserve your child’s space in one of our classes, please pay the enrollment fee no later than September 1, 2018.  If you have any questions regarding the enrollment fee or cost of therapy services, please email Heather Ruoff.

New Families

If you are interested in enrolling your child in a class, but have never attended the Marian Hope Center before, we ask that you please schedule a meeting with a staff member in order to exchange information about your child and the program.  At that time, you will be asked to complete a 2018-2019 Enrollment Form, review the 2018-2019 Parent Handbook, provide us with a copy of recent evaluations and any current IFSPs or IEPs, and pay the enrollment fee.

All of these steps must be completed prior to your child attending the Marian Hope Center.  To schedule an appointment, please email Heather Ruoff.  We look forward to meeting you and working with your child!
