- Initial contact will likely be through a verbal inquiry. At this point, sufficient information should be exchanged to determine whether there is a match between the client’s needs and the Centre’s program. If it seems that the client meets the eligibility criteria and that they could benefit from the program, then the Referral and Intake Information forms will be sent to the referring agency/individual for completion.
The referring agency/individual will be advised if there is a waiting list, and given an estimation of the date of admission.
- The Referral and Intake Information forms will be completed and forwarded to the Centre. A preliminary assessment will be based on the information in the referral form. If the client clearly meets the criteria, the referring agency/individual will be advised of the estimated waiting period.
- If there is any question of the client meeting the criteria, the referring agency/individual will be advised of the areas in question, and further information will be sought prior to making a final decision. If there is still question upon receipt of additional information, an on-site assessment will be arranged.
