4. Do you accept insurance or Medicaid?
Unfortunately, we do not accept insurance or Medicaid as our services are generally considered educational in nature, not therapeutic.
However, everyone’s situation is different and should be investigated thoroughly. A flex plan may cover services and we will be happy to provide you a receipt for services (not a superbill).
Thank you for understanding as we do our best to provide the highest quality service and manage this complicated issue in the most efficient manner.
5. Do we offer scholarships?
Social Motion is a not-for profit entity and regularly seeks grant funds as well as donations from individuals and foundations to offer services to families, regardless of their ability to pay. Scholarships or partial pay subsidies may be available depending on current funding levels. Please call 713-461-7200 for more information.
6. Do you offer payment terms?
Yes, for most long-term classes, monthly payment options are available.
7. Are you able to pick up my child from school or transport them to events?
No, due to liability reasons, we are not able to transport students. Parents, or students of driving age, are responsible for their own transportation to class and all related events or activities.
8. What does it mean to be on a “wait list”?
As we seek to offer classes in new, more convenient locations, sometimes we make a list of interested parties. When we have enough students to make a group – we will do so and inform those who patiently waited.
9. Why is an intake appointment required and $30 charged?
In order to maintain our highest standards of quality, we require that you and your child meet personally with our program director to determine if your child is a fit for the program and if our program is a good fit for your child and family. There is a non-refundable intake fee of $30 charged for this process. If your child joins the program, the intake fee is credited towards tuition. If it is decided we are not a good fit for each other, the fee has paid for your consultation.
