We are doing our best to reduce the number of people coming into and out of the practice. We would appreciate it if you could limit bringing siblings into the practice. If this is unavoidable, please liaise with your therapist to arrange a drop off/pick up plan.

If you or your child are unwell or have any of the following symptoms: fever, sore throat, cough, or shortness of breath, we ask you to call us prior to your appointment, to make alternative arrangements for your session.

We thank you for your cooperation during these unforeseen circumstances.
