What Types of Services Are Covered
We have experience providing academic tutoring, music lessons, and art instruction to SDP enrollees. However, which type(s) of services the SDP will cover for your student depends on your student’s specific needs. We can provide guidance based on our previous SDP students’ successes in obtaining coverage.
How It Works
If you’re enrolled in the SDP, then the process is simple!
The student’s family arranges with the regional center to have our services covered by the SDP
We sign a contract with the student’s financial management service (FMS)
The student’s family signs a contract with us
We submit timesheets to the FMS on a bimonthly basis on behalf of the student’s family
There are three important considerations detailed in the FMS’s contract with us:
The FMS only pays for services that fall under the scope of the contract that they send to us. So, if the original contract stipulated academic tutoring services, then your student cannot get music lessons covered by the SDP unless a new contract is drawn and signed.
The FMS only pays for services rendered. So, if a student cancels a session within 24 hours, then the student’s family is responsible for the full price of the canceled session.
The FMS designates a specific budget for the use of Hodis Learning & Music services. If the student uses more than the specified budget in a given month, then the student’s family is responsible for any overage.
