SSC Academy is not a 'hang out' or a babysitting service. It is not a place to learn 'manners'. It's a place to learn, grow, and have fun alongside other students who are doing the same thing!

You can keep trying other therapies that don't provide natural social rewards.

You can keep advocating for 1/1 services that don't teach social awareness.

You can keep waiting for your child to 'outgrow' their social learning challenges.

Or you can join us on the journey to your child's brightest future!

THE 'WHAT IF MY CHILD DOESN'T LIKE IT?' GUARANTEE

The fact that you’re reading this section means you already know this is what your child needs, but perhaps you still have a bit of doubt. Hesitation. Risk. I get it. Like…

"What if my child doesn't like it?

Or won't participate?”

Well that’s simple. Try it!

Guarantee #1:

Try the first class

Try the first lesson and first game time. If you or your child don't feel like this is the best thing for them, simply email us at [email protected] by Saturday midnight at the end of the first week (or the end of the first day if they are in the summer program) and we’ll gladly refund your entire investment!

We definitely recommend trying more than one week, but this guarantee is here for you if you choose to use it.

Guarantee #2:

20% for Module 1

If you choose not to continue after completing Module 1, simply email us at [email protected] by Saturday midnight at the end of the 8th week (or the end of the 8th day if they are in the summer program) and we'll gladly refund you any amount you paid over 20%!

You will retain access to all the content in the first Module.
