1. Admissions

We welcome and admit individuals of any race, color, national and ethnic origin, socio-economic background to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities made available to all individuals supported by Scott Key Center. Scott Key Center does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, physical or mental disability. Scott Key Center’s admission decision for each individual is based on examination of the materials presented and consideration of information obtained during the intake meeting. From these sources, we determine if Scott Key Center can support the level of care needs of the individual referred. Each Scott Key Center student is required to have a record of a recent physical (within the last 12 months) a dental exam completed within the last 12 months, and record of current immunizations prior to enrollment. If you currently take medication, we will need original prescriptions (when possible one week prior to enrollment). Our Registered Nurse will discuss specific requirements for medication distribution with you.

You will receive a packet that contains all the forms that Scott Key Center is required by licensing to maintain in your case record. These forms help us better serve you. Most require your input; all require your signature. Without this information, enrollment cannot occur. Legal guardians must sign these forms; you will not be enrolled into Scott Key Center unless these critical forms are signed. An Individual Support Manager will review the information received and contact you should additional information be required. The Individual Support Manager will be glad to answer any questions you may have so please call.

At Scott Key Center, a team supports each individual. The make-up of this team will reflect the individual’s needs. The following is a description of the Scott Key Center staff most likely to be a part of the Individual Plan team that supports you.

  • Individual Support Manager: Each individual enrolled at Scott Key Center is assigned an Individual Support Manager. The Individual Support Manager coordinates your schedule and vocational services.

  • Registered Nurse: Each individual is supported by a Scott Key Center’s full time registered nurse. The frequency of the nurse’s involvement will depend on your medical needs.

4. Communication

It is important for caregivers and/or parents to remain in contact with the Individual Support Manager to receive updates on progress or any area of concern. We welcome visitors to tour Scott Key Center but ask that you contact your Individual Support Manager before coming in for a tour. This will minimize disruption to the programing and assure that the person you are visiting hasn’t left the building for an activity.
