Frequently Asked Questions
Am I eligible?
Your child is eligible based on two things: 1) diagnosis and 2) your willingness to commit to the program. You want to be sure our Integrative Model aligns with what you want out of a school, and what you are willing to give to a school. This is a partnership, we play a role – but so do you. This is what makes JSA successful and unique. Visit our Admissions page for more information.
Is your program right for my child?

How do I find out if my insurance covers treatment?
