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 staff will have access to any information that could identify my child. I give permission for UBC researchers to work on documents generated by Club Aviva staff during Empowering Steps programs. This data will be extracted and all personal information removed before conducting the statistical analysis.
Empowering Steps Fee Structure
Length of Session
equal payments (private payments only)
Sept 1 - Jun 1 x 10 each
CATEGORY 1 (GST Exempt)
CATEGORY 2 (with GST)
*Fees do not include any applicable taxes. Clients who have 3rd party funding or a medical referral from a medical practitioner, such as a physician, social worker, registered psychologist or nurse may be exempt from GST.
*If you attend multiple sessions per week please combine the appropriate totals/payments
*Group rates are available upon request to parents/guardians with a participant who has been recommended for a group program.
The fee covers the 1:1 client time as well as the reserved time slot for the 10 month time period. It also includes access to a supervisor when your child requires 2:1 assistance for extra support. In January and June semiannual assessments are done. Each assessment requires your child’s therapist, a supervisor and a minimum of 1 hour in the gym and is included in the ES Service rates. Everyday therapists spend a minimum of 30 minutes on daily notes, session set up and preparation. The ES Team also meets once a week for 2 hours to discuss progress/goals/treatment plans etc. Facility and equipment costs are also included. Fees also include the GBC and Club Membership Fee (please see below).
GBC and Club Membership
Is included in your fees. This mandatory membership is (value over $60.00) is valid from September 1st through August 31st each year. The annual membership includes Gymnastics BC (GBC) insurance, 10% off Club Aviva and Empowering Steps t-shirts and hoodies.
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.
- 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 email@example.com 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.
Empowering Steps is not a per/session service. It is a 10-month program, operating September – January and February - 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, all scheduled programming will be charged in full. If you miss 3 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.
Missed In-Person Private Lessons due to Student Illness during COVID-19
As per Club Aviva’s COVID-19 Safety Plan, clients should not enter our premises if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19. Clients who cannot attend their in-person session due to COVID-19 symptoms or any other respiratory illness, can arrange with their therapist or the ES Office with at least 4 hours advance notice, to attend their regularly scheduled private session online virtually. Clients who are too ill to attend the private session online, or whose therapist does not offer virtual to their client online, will be offered a make-up session. Clients will be limited to three make-up private sessions per season (September – June) due to illness.
Note: this policy does not apply for in-person Sep-Jun group sessions.
Extreme circumstances may be reviewed on a case by case basis.
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 one month after the customer gives notice.
