NEW PARTICIPANTS: Out & About's registration process is a multi-step process which starts with the family/provider completing a Participant Information Form (PIF). The PIF provides an opportunity to Out & About to learn about the participant's abilities (i.e. communication, mobility), medical and diagnostic background (i.e. g-tube, autism), emergency information and goals.
Once the completed PIF is received, a member of Out & About's Coordinating Team will contact the family/provider to complete a brief intake. The intake can be done over the phone or in-person and typically takes 15-30 minutes. The intake process allows Out & About to ask questions about the PIF, answer any questions you may have and ensure that Out & About can meet the participant's needs and is a positive fit for the individual.
Once Out & About has determined a positive fit for the participant, a Therapeutic Plan is composed and shared with Out &About Instructors who will work with the participant out on shift. This step must be completed prior to joining our services. In the event that a participant uses a g-tube, oxygen or has seizures, Out & About requires a written protocol be provided prior to beginning services.
Out & About's Catalog Coordinator will confirm that the intake process has been completed, ensure all necessary forms have been received, and establish a start date for services.
The Participant Information Form is linked below in an electronic and printable format. Once the participant is registered, a confirmation letter or packet will be sent with detailed information regarding transportation and activities. Additional forms will be provided as necessary.
Out & About's Catalog Services are designed for teens and adults aged 16 and over. Activities include weeknight and weekend classes and outings as well as one-time events. One-time events take place on Saturdays and Sundays each month. Each month, Out & About arranges different events that enable individuals to participate in seasonal activities such as visiting Water World or Idaho Hot Springs, or attending a Valentine's Dance or a Scottish Irish Festival.

Activities are community-based: meaning we offer events and classes that actively encourage community inclusion. Out & About achieves this by keeping our staff ratios small, approximately four participants per instructor, so that we can navigate the community while giving each person a high level of attention and care. Providing community-based services enables our participants to be included in society, as well as enriching communities by encouraging acceptance of all. However, being community-inclusive does not occur without challenges.
Out & About provides the option for participants to be transported from their residence to the activity and back. The cost of transportation is listed below.
Participants within 5 miles of a base site: $10 each way
A participant who lives more than 5 miles of a base site: $12.50 each way
A participant who lives more than 10 miles away: $15 each way
There is NO transportation fee charged if a participant chooses pick-ups and drop-offs at the four base sites listed below. Those utilizing base sites will receive an email with the exact meeting time. (If there is a preference for a phone call please specify in your registration)
Out & About reserves the right to change pick-up and drop-off locations based on weather and cell phone signal conditions.
