After Your Week
PACE Place: Family Immersion Week: Recalling Your Week
During the week, each of the PACE Place professionals write notes
summarizing their observations and recommendations. Parents and other
family members are encouraged to write daily notes of their own. Putting
experiences into your own words is a powerful way to make the most of a

At PACE Place, cameras and microphones are located in the kitchen, living
room, and recorded. At the end of the week you will be sent home with the
original DVD(s) for your review. PACE keeps none of the recordings. You will
have the only copy. You can record as little or as much as you wish.
Adventures in the community are often captured through photos from a
camera phone. Families who wish additional recordings or higher quality
images in the community are encouraged to bring their own cameras and
Our son likes to watch the DVD. It brings back good memories for him.
We provided a copy to our home therapist. It is a shot in the arm for me as a

When your family returns home, the PACE Place professionals are available to
consult with you by telephone and/or email. Once we have all gotten to know
each other, it can be very powerful for families to chat with a member of the
PACE staff to get fresh ideas, a new perspective, or review concepts
discussed during the week’s visit. We feel very connected to families during
their week at PACE Place and we love to hear of your triumphs and wish to
continue to support future challenges.
For the first month upon your family’s return home, you may schedule two
telephone consultations with any member of the PACE Place staff for no fee.
We are committed to your continued success and we want to hear from you.
You may consult with whichever professional is best suited for your question
or concern (i.e., Kathi Calouri, Eric Hamblen, or Steve Ryan). After your first
two free telephone consultations, you will be able to continue to consult with
the PACE staff, pro-rated appropriately at the following rates:
Katherine Calouri, Ph.D.: $120 per hour
Eric Hamblen: $120 per hour
Steve Ryan, MA, CCC: $120 per hour
Many families have a relationship with a consultant in their home communities
and they often continue working with that person after their visit to PACE
Place. Any member of the PACE Place staff would be happy to collaborate
family’s educational team or local consultant.
In additional to telephone consultations, Kathi, Eric, and Steve are dedicated
emailers and are happy to respond to any email thoughts, concerns, or
questions you may have. If your question cannot be handled appropriately by
email, a telephone consultation will be scheduled and billed at the above
