The Gengras Center currently does not accept self referrals or parental referrals. The referral process is through local education agency (LEA) initiation. Our enrollment procedure is as follows:

  1. Parent and LEA, usually through the PPT process, agree the student requires an out of district placement.
  2. LEA forwards formal referral packet to the Gengras Center. Packet should include the following:
      • Recent IEP and PPT minutes (2-3 years)
      • Most recent psychological/speech/language, OT/PT evaluations, or Educational evaluations
      • Social development history (if available, or completed prior to admission)
      • Progress reports (at least one year)
      • Health file/medical records, including current medications, hospitalizations, and nursing care plans
      • Any other pertinent information (i.e. psychiatric evaluation, Behavior Intervention Plans, etc.)
  • The Gengras Center intake team reviews referral and deems whether placement may be appropriate.
  • If so, an intake visit is set up where parent/guardian can tour the program and the staff can observe student in a classroom setting.
  • After visit, the Gengras intake team, LEA, and parent/guardian will determine if placement at Gengras is an appropriate program for the student.
