FAQ'S

Answers to our most commonly asked questions.
  • Does my child need a formal diagnosis to register in your programs?
    No. We are an inclusive centre that provides small class sizes with trained and qualified staff. Our goal is to support families that feel their child(ren) would benefit from our small class sizes and extra attention.
  • Can siblings attend your programs?
    Yes! Unless otherwise stated, siblings are more than welcome to register into classes. They can register into the same class as their sibling or any of our classes that would be of interest to them.
  • What if I know my child will require 1:1 support?
    Talk to us during your initial intake session. We are happy to provide the 1:1 support at cost to help with the transition into the program.
  • What if my child needs space and/or time to self-regulate during class?
    They are encouraged and welcome to use our sensory space. We built the sensory space in the middle of our centre as self regulation is an integral part of being able to participate and enjoy our programs. We wanted our participants to feel at home in our space and be able to access sensory materials when they need to.
  • Can I use Autism Funding to cover the cost of the programs?
    Yes! You can submit a Request to Pay to Autism Funding and once approved, we can bill them directly. When signing up for a program, don't pay online. Send us an email at info@thisworldsours.com to let us know that you would like to use autism funding. Here is a sample Request to Pay form with the information you will need.
  • Can my child attend classes while we are waiting for our autism funding request to pay to be approved?
    Absolutely! We know it can take a few weeks to get approval and we encourage you to start attending right away. We will bill them directly once it is approved.
  • Why do some programs cost more than others?
    That's because some of our programs include materials that participants will be able to take home at the end of the course, such as a ukulele or a robot. We also charge a little bit more to cover the cost of our cooking programs.
  • Are you strict about the ages for the programs?
    No. We understand that developmental age, skill level, and interest vary in each learner. Please feel free to talk to us if you are not sure about the suitability of a specific program. Email us at info@thisworldsours.com
  • What days is the centre closed?
    For 2023, we will be closed on the following days: Monday, Feb. 20th Friday, April 7th Monday, May 22nd Saturday, July 1st Monday, Aug. 7th Monday, Sept. 4th Monday, Oct. 9th Saturday, Nov. 11th Monday, Dec. 25th
  • Are parents allowed to stay while children are in programs?
    Absolutely! We have a quiet parent waiting area with tea, where parents are always welcome to sit and relax. You are also welcome to sit in the main area to watch your child. We want you to feel comfortable in our space, so please make yourself at home.
