What to Expect

We know how confusing it can be to start something new. Here, we outline what to expect before and during your first class!

01

Make an Inquiry

Once you complete the contact form on our “Enrollment” page, you will be emailed a brochure with information and pricing for our classes. The software we use, Honeybook, will automatically send you a link to create a private login for our portal. This portal allows for all communication in one place and it allows us to securely process payments.

02

Intake

Once we’ve received your inquiry, we will reach out to schedule an intake. Intakes are required for acceptance to our program. Intakes take place over 1-hour long Zoom meetings. We request that the participant and their social coach attend.

03

Determination/Proposal

After the intake, we are able to determine which of our courses would be an appropriate fit. We will send you a proposal to explain in detail what course we recommend. Dependent on the timing of the intake and the current cycle of classes, you may be placed on a waitlist. Our class sizes are limited to ensure that all participants receive appropriate instruction.

04

In Class

Before class, you will be emailed a Zoom meeting link. Once you join the meeting, you’ll be able to see your Instructor(s), Social Coach(es), and all of the other participants! We will explain the course structure and its expectations in depth in the first class before beginning our lesson. Our lessons involve socratic learning and role plays, so come ready to engage!
