Empowering Steps is a research-based program. Please check the box below to consent to the use of statistics and data on your child for research purposes. For statistical analysis, we may request the help of statisticians or other researchers who will respect the same rules of privacy and confidentiality. All analyses will be conducted on anonymized datasets where it is impossible to recognize any participant. In the event any results are published, it will be done so in a way that does not identify you or your child unless permission to do so has been obtained. We may also share the data with other researchers so that they can check the accuracy of our conclusions but will only do so if we are confident that your confidentiality is protected.
I consent to the use of my child’s data and information for research purposes. Only Club Aviva and SSF staff will have access to any information that could identify my child.

Empowering Steps Base Fees
||Base hourly session rate

Third Party Billing (Automatic Funding)
In order to set up automatic funding or third party billing from an organization, Club Aviva must receive a confirmation letter from the organization that outlines the dates and amounts that the funding is available for. The customer is responsible for setting up funding with the organization. Until the confirmation letter has been received, the customer may be responsible for making the monthly payments using the post-dated cheques method of payment. Once payment has been received from the funding organization, we can reimburse the customer for that amount and return the remaining post-dated cheques for the term. No retroactive funding changes will accepted. Written notice and confirmation is required for any funder changes. You are responsible to ensure that your funding is accurate and up-to-date. If there is a lapse in funding, services rendered will be charged to the credit card on file. Once funding has been reestablished, you may be eligible for a refund.
- Autism Funding Unit (AFU) at the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD):
Club Aviva invoices the AFU at the MCFD for all services based on our hourly rate. If you receive funding from the AFU, please obtain a MCFD Autism Funding “Request to Pay” form (CF0925) from the ES Office, as we have already correctly completed the information needed for the “Service Provider” section which includes all of our services. You will need to complete the rest of the form, send directly to the MCFD or we will forward to MCFD on your behalf. If you send the form directly, please provide the ES Office with a copy for our records, in order to commence services. Incorrect forms result in delays, so please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
- Other Funding Agencies:
If you receive funding from a different agency other than the AFU (MCFD), a confirmation letter must be given to the ES Office prior to your child starting services.
For clients who do not receive third party funding, post -dated cheques or an EFT for the entire year from Sep 1-Jun 1, are due upon registration and need to be dated for the first of each month. Please make cheques payable to Club Aviva Recreation Ltd. Cheques/EFTs will be processed on the first of each month and detailed invoices will be emailed at the end of each month. Please contact us directly to setup your monthly charge. Please note: there is a $45 NSF fee.
Empowering Steps is not a per/session service. It is a 10-month program, operating September - June that involves a lot of administrative, preparatory, and consultative work outside of sessions. When your child is absent, your therapist is reviewing their log book, preparing for their next session, consulting with other therapists/supervisors, re-evaluating the effectiveness of their current behavior plan/program delivery, as well as preparing a debrief on your child for discussion at weekly ES collaborative meetings. For this reason, there will be a charge associated with all scheduled programming. Three make-ups will be allowed per year. Any missed sessions beyond that will be billed a $60 cancellation fee privately. Make-ups must be scheduled by the end of the month, and there is no guarantee that they will be scheduled with your regular therapist. There will be no make-ups for make-ups. Any cancellation-related charges will be billed privately to your credit card on file. Group sessions are non-refundable, not eligible for makeups, and missed group sessions will be charged in full. If you miss 3 ES sessions in a row without notification, or miss more than 25% of your scheduled program for more than 2 consecutive months, Club Aviva reserves the right to remove your child from the schedule and offer the spot to a client on the waitlist. Exemptions to these policies may be considered for medical reasons with approval from the management team.
Multiple consecutive missed sessions will be handled as a program withdrawal. One month notice is required and readmittance into the program is required.
If you are permanently withdrawing for medical reasons, a note from the child’s medical practitioner must be provided in order to receive a refund for remaining sessions. Otherwise, one month’s written notice from the 1st of the month, must be given for withdrawal from the program and payments will be due for scheduled sessions within that time period.
