Return the completed forms by MAIL, along with copies of the most recent reports, evaluations, and documents:
- Regional Center assessments and Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) or Individual Program Plan (IPP).
- School district evaluations and Individual Education Plan (IEP).
- Any other relevant reports and evaluations, such as psychological, behavioral, neurological, speech and language, occupational therapy, floor time, social skills or whatever you may have at this time.
- Health insurance card, front and back.
- Optional: If you have an extra picture of your child, feel free to tuck it into your registration packet too.
Please MAIL all of the above information to:
Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital at UCLA, Room 78-215

We will send you written confirmation by mail within 2 weeks of receipt of your registration packet - no need to call within this 2 week period. We will process all registration packets in the order received. At that time your child will be added to our waitlist. While you are waiting to join KidsConnect, it is important that you obtain services for him or her within the community.
