ABA Connections’ group programs operate at a 3:1 ratio (children:facilitator) and are not designed to manage dangerous behaviours such as severe aggression, elopement, self-injury, or property destruction. Participants who engage in dangerous behaviours pose a serious risk to staff, other participants, and themselves and, as such, ABA Connections reserves the right to immediately dismiss participants engaging in dangerous behaviour that cannot be adequately managed in the group environment. Per our Cancellation and Refund policy outlined above, refunds or credits will not be provided in cases where a participant is dismissed for engaging in dangerous behaviour.
