We understand that life is hectic and children get sick. We kindly ask that at least 24 hours notice is provided so other families on the waiting list can avail of the service instead. If you need to cancel within 24 hours, a cancellation fee of 50% will be applied which reflects the work and preparation time for your appointment. The cancelled session will be viewed as an indirect therapy session and guidelines and materials (if appropriate) will be emailed to you to ensure your child continues to achieve their therapy goals within their block of therapy.
