Once a document is available, the user has 5 business days to come borrow, after which time he will loose priority.
Each document borrowed must be returned to Autisme Montréal in person;
If the user cannot come to the office within the time limit, an arrangement must be made by contacting the documentation agent.
Lost or Damaged Material
When material is damaged when brought back, Autisme Montréal will keep the deposit (or part of it) to cover the cost of repairs;
Should the material be lost, Autisme Montréal will assess the cost of replacement.
Note: Due to the nature of our clientele, we are aware that the damage risk of our material is higher than usual. Parents should be comfortable when returning this material and informing our documentation agent of the observed damage.
Autisme Montréal would rather get its material back and repair it than have one less document or game available for its users.
Video or DVD watching at the office
To maximise its services, Autisme Montréal gives its users the opportunity to watch the documentation centre’s videos at the office.
You can come to our office and use BoardMaker, a program to produce sheets of pictograms. We charge 0,10$ per black and white printed sheet and 1,00$ for a color sheet. You may also laminate the sheetss for 0,65$ per sheet.
