What is your refund and program cancellation policy?
Full refunds are available and up to the discretion of the Program Coordinator and will be processed within 7-10 business days and refunded back to the original form of payment. In the event that a program is cancelled due to a variety of reasons including inclement weather, staff sick, or room booking has been cancelled families will be notified as soon as possible by phone call, email, or social media. A week will be added to the end of the program on the same night of the week if time and room booking is permitted.
What if my child misses a day?
If a child is absent one day, it does not affect the child’s participation. Please notify the lead by leaving a message on the site-specific cell phone, due to scheduling differences and program size limits, missed days cannot be made up. However, once we have started the programs, LDAWE has invested in the required program materials and personnel and cannot offer a refund for missed days.
What is the Waiting List Policy?
Specific programs are very popular and can fill up quickly. We do our best to accept as many registrants as possible; however, we are limited by the availability of program space. As a result, we sometimes have to place children on a waiting list. If additional spaces become available, these children are given first priority. Please register early to avoid disappointment.
Medical and other information about your child
Prior to attending LDAWE programs, we require certain medical information, such as allergies, medical issues or behaviour plans which can all be noted on the online registration forms. We will also require an updated IEP or psychology report sent directly to the organization either through fax (519-252-4169), email (firstname.lastname@example.org), mail (3945 Matchette Rd, Windsor, ON N9C 4C2) or dropped off directly to the office. This will provide the Lead Facilitators with knowledge of specific information about your child to ensure safe and fun participation in the program.
All programs involve some risk, and by registering for a program, there is an assumption of risk made by the participant. LDAWE programs are dedicated to providing safe facilities and using personnel and equipment that is designed to be safe. Although trained in first aid, CPR and EpiPen administration, Lead Facilitators are NOT trained in the provision of medical services of any kind. If your child requires regular medical services (diabetes blood testing, administration of medication, etc), please contact the Learning Disabilities Association of Windsor-Essex County office to make arrangements for your child’s caregiver during programs.
Please note that at this time there is no proper procedure for medication to be available on site and accommodations for medicine storage and administration cannot be arranged at this time.
By enrolling your child in LDAWE programs, you agree to not hold LDAWE, its Franchisees, Agents, Representatives, Facilities, Employees, Managers, Contractors and Instructors liable for any medical emergencies or conditions your child may experience, related directly or indirectly to a program.
