CLIENT SERVICES CONTRACT

SCHEDULING

Your scheduled therapy time is reserved time for your child and the speech pathologist. A great deal of time and effort is spent preparing for your child’s therapy session. If you must cancel a therapy session we request that provide us with 24 hours advance notice. Late cancellations and no-shows are subject to a fee equivalent to the regular visit.

There will be times when your speech pathologist will need to cancel therapy. When notified, you will have the opportunity to re-schedule or cancel the session.

Please be on time for your appointment. If you are late for an appointment it may be necessary to shorten your child’s therapy session in order to stay on schedule for other clients. In the event your child’s therapy is shortened, you will be charged for a full session.

Therapy sessions are scheduled in 30 or 45-minute increments. The last few minutes of each session is reserved to review your child’s progress and ask questions. There will be no therapy scheduled on most Texas State and Federal holidays.
