Written Reports

Written reports are NOT included in standard assessments.

This is to keep the cost of assessments fair for those whom do not require a report, the majority of clients do not.

Referral letters, additional written targets (e.g. for school IEP's) or telephone calls on behalf of the client may carry a fee. In such circumstances, the therapist shall always provide advance notification of potential fees.
