Should you choose to participate, you will be directed to a survey by Modus Research. Your participation in this
survey is appreciated and will inform our recommendations to Canadian companies about hiring from the autism
community.

Your responses will be kept strictly confidential and will only be reported in anonymized form.

What happens if my child misses a Program Session?

Programs are time limited or group sessions and have specific procedures about billing and missed appointments. These procedures are spelled out in the Program Agreements that you sign before the start of a Program block.

What happens if my child’s therapist wants us to stop this service or program?

If an ISAND therapist recommends stopping this plan and recommends a different service/program, or withdrawal, you don’t have to give 30 days’ notice or pay any extra money.

Can I withdraw from a service or program if I don’t think its helping?

We suggest that you speak with the clinician before deciding to withdraw your child from service. If you decide to withdraw ISAND needs 30 days’ notice or payment that is equal to 30 days’ notice.

Will you always send me an appointment reminder by email?

ISAND’s computer system usually sends out appointment reminders by email. Sometimes, there is a computer glitch, and you might not receive the reminder. These reminders are a professional courtesy only. Clients are responsible to keep or cancel their appointment, whether they receive a reminder or not. If you don’t know when your next appointment is, please contact ISAND at 416-224-5959 or by e-mail at info@isand.ca.

What happens if the therapist cancels the appointment?

If the therapist has to cancel, you will not be billed for the session. The therapist and client may be able to coordinate a make-up appointment that would be billed at the regular rate.

Why is there a fee for cancelled appointments?

When you book an appointment, your clinician reserves that time just for you. When a client cancels an appointment with short notice, or misses the appointment altogether, it is often too late or impossible to offer this appointment to another family in need.
