KDS maintains an admissions team that reviews referrals and applications and
accepts all students who are appropriate for the program, without regard to race, color, religion, sex or national origin (we are not accepting adults 40+ at this time.) Our school is not appropriate for homicidal or suicidal individuals or those with criminal backgrounds.
Your child may be right for KDS if he or she has a below average IQ, is working below grade level and has been diagnosed with some type of developmental delay.
In order to consider your child for admission, we ask you to complete the following steps:
Initial Admission Packet

4. Complete a Request for Release of Information Form (print from this page) for each program your student has attended within the past 5 years, and return all forms to email@example.com, (We request that you “check off” and consent to ALL areas of information/records, as this will best help us make an admission determination.)
