Cancellations/Refunds/Payment Information for Conferences
(Please see the next section for courses.)
Cancellations are accepted up to 30 days prior to the event less a $50 processing fee. Cancellations are not accepted less than 30 days prior to conference and no refunds are provided less than 30 days prior to a conference.
Cancellations/Refunds/Payment Information for Courses
(such as DIR 101, 201, 202, 203, 204, 310, 320, etc)
Whether you pay for the full price of the course or you pay a deposit, the entire price of the course is required to be paid even if you drop the course or stop attending. Recurring or balance payments must be received on time to remain enrolled in a course. You will not receive your Certificate of Attendance until your final payment is received, potentially making you ineligible to receive Continuing Education Credits (CEs or CEUs) for your course. In addition, if your payment is not received within 15 days of your payment due date, an additional $50 processing fee will be charged.
Some courses may have course specific payment, cancellation, and refund policies. Please read your course registration page for class-specific cancellation/refund policies. Unless otherwise noted in course-specific registration materials, the policies are the same as listed below for other DIRFloortime courses.
If you registered for a DIR 202, 203, 204A or 204B course, please be certain you have met the prerequisites and are eligible to register for this course! If you are uncertain whether you are eligible to attend this course, please contact email@example.com. The refund and cancellation policies will not be waived if you registered without having completed the appropriate prerequisites.
All cancellations must be made by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you request a cancellation at least 15 days prior to the first day of class you will qualify for a full refund less a $75 USD processing fee. If the course price is less than $150 USD, then the processing fee will be 50% of the price paid. Cancellations after that period and before the class begins are eligible for a 50% refund of the entire course fee. If you paid a deposit of less than 50%, you may still owe ICDL a payment. No refunds will be issued once the class has begun and full payment is required even if you stop attending the course. Class change requests are considered a cancellation and re-registration.
For certificate orders, renewals, and replacements, there are no refunds.
Cancellations/Refunds/Payment Information for Services
ICDL is committed to your satisfaction for our therapy, parent coaching, Floortime Intensive, and all other services we provide through our DIRFloortime® Therapy Center. We ask that you immediately contact us at email@example.com if you have any concerns and/or are not satisfied with our services. Our policy is to not provide refunds on services already rendered, but we will provide prorated refunds for unused portions of any prepaid services if you are unsatisfied.
Important Information About the Use of Promotional Codes for All Conferences, Courses, or Services
You must take advantage of any promotions (promo codes) when you register for your course. We are not able to issue refunds for promotions that are not entered at the time of registration.
Suspension or Removal From Courses and Conferences
ICDL reserves the right, at its own discretion, to remove any student or participant for any reason it deems appropriate including, but not limited to, being disruptive, disrespectful, or detracting from the process of the course. ICDL is committed to having a safe and respectful learning environment for all of our participants, students, and staff. ICDL also reserves the right to remove or suspend any participant or student due to lack of payment of, or incomplete payment of, the required course or conference registration fees.
Complaints or Grievances
Should a participant in a course have a complaint, we ask that you contact the training leader of the course. If this is not acceptable, appropriate, or successful, you can e-mail our training department at firstname.lastname@example.org. A training department manager will respond as quickly as possible. If you are still not satisfied, please e-mail the ICDL Chief Executive Officer, Jeffrey Guenzel, at email@example.com. Once your complaint is received by Mr. Guenzel, you will receive a response with a resolution within 15 business days. It is our goal and commitment that every participant is satisfied with their learning experience.
Aligned with the DIR model, continuing education offered by ICDL works to be responsive to a range of individual differences in processing, communicating, and regulating; learning differences, learning disabilities, and other forms of disability. ICDL is committed to making all of our conferences and training opportunities accessible to all participants. ICDL does this by asking that once registered, participants who would seek accommodations in order to participate in a course to contact the Training Program of ICDL (firstname.lastname@example.org). The Training Program staff will work with the participant and course instructors to individualize accommodations including the following, and in addition to any accessibility features included in the Zoom and Moodle platforms:
Content is multi-modal (it comes in multiple forms). ICDL instructors provide visuals that pair with verbal information within courses such as through Powerpoint presentations or videos in addition to didactic teaching.
Multiple forms of engagement are accepted and encouraged. Instructors use the chat feature of Zoom to promote engagement by attendees who may not prefer or be able to engage verbally in the course.
Providing slides and supplemental materials such as readings, handouts, and links to related video or audio content before and after the course has occurred.
Classes are recorded with the purpose of allowing participants to review content after attending, not in place of live attendance, to promote processing and access to content for different processing and learning needs.
Courses are offered at different times of day to accommodate needs of global participants and of those who need to have learning opportunities at different points in their day.
Courses are offered virtually, allowing participants to attend from a location and environment optimal to their learning, sensory, and physical needs.
In Professional Certificate courses, participants may pre-record their case presentation to then share in class in response to identified needs such as mental health, primary language/fluency, environmental demands, or others.
Accommodations are frequently bundled into modifications within each course, anticipating that participants who come to courses will have a range of needs, and may not have informed ICDL of their identified learning or developmental disability prior to the course. ICDL is committed to making courses accessible and rich opportunities to engage with and learn.
