Early Emory accepts enrollment applications on an ongoing basis. New children beginning the program receive a developmental screening by the program psychologist, board-certified behavior analyst or program director to ensure appropriate placement. Screenings without developmental concern take approximately one hour. Screenings for autism concern may take between 1-3 hours and require parents to complete intake assessments for more information to be included in treatment planning. All screenings include one-on-one time, as well as observation of your child in the classroom. Screenings are required for all children prior to enrollment.

Tuition-based: There is a base preschool tuition for all children and an additional tuition for autism intervention. Please call 404-727-3964 for more information on current fees.

Insurance: For children with an autism spectrum disorder, Early Emory is working to become in-network through insurance’s mental health benefits for Applied Behavior Analysis therapy services. In the interim, we will work with you to determine whether our program is a covered benefit under your insurance as an out-of-network provider.

Discounted rates apply at 10% for Emory University employees or sibling enrollment (one per family).
