Frequently Asked Questions

As each child differs, a general idea of what to expect involves having the parents wake the child and introduce the transport professionals. Very briefly, explain that the agents are here to transport the child to a program the parents have chosen. We understand that the child is scared, confused and often angry. We prefer the parents leave the room should this happen, to alleviate the attempts of the child from debating with your decision. Anger rarely extends to non-family members. We will re-introduce ourselves and begin the process of having the child dress and vacate the home while answering all questions the child may have. The bond we often have with the child begins there. This may sound like a lot, but we like to have this process take 10-15 minutes.

Although infrequent, this is the reason you are utilizing Positive Solutions and our professionals. Should a child flat out refuse to go, we have found that by taking a firm and fair stance, we can usually correct that behavior. We will, of course, facilitate making alternative travel arrangements if necessary. Of utmost importance to us is that the students’ dignity remains intact throughout the transport process and to ensure a successful enrollment. By customizing the transport to fit any given needs, we can best ensure success.

We feel that the child has the right to know what is happening to them and where they are going. Our goal is to have the child arrive at the program knowing the day to day, week to week and month to month routine. That being said, we will provide this information to the child as he/she is able to absorb it throughout the transport.

As a rule, we would like to see a few days change of clothes in a carry-on size backpack or duffel. The remainder of the effects can be shipped to the program. We will be in constant communication with you during the transport. This will be via text until we reach our destination, where we will then call you directly. The child will not be allowed to communicate with family or friends throughout the transport.
