Welcome to Island Therapies!

The following information is directed at answering some of your inquiries about office policies. Any additional questions may be submitted online to: or… just ask!

How long are the sessions?
• One Hour Session - 50 minutes • One Half Hour Session - 25 minutes

What about homework?
Home practice, parent involvement, and daily exercises are an essential component of the therapy process. If you are given exercises, iPad games, and/or worksheets to do, please follow through for a more positive outcome. Progress takes just a few minutes of daily practice.

What is the cancellation policy?
A 24-hour notice is required. Please make every effort to attend all scheduled appointments. Cancellations due to illness are unpredictable and understandable; however, frequent cancellations may reflect a lack of commitment to the therapy process and will likely result in unmet goals. If you need to cancel an appointment, please do so at least 24 hours ahead, otherwise you will be charged in full. Our hope is that your child will make progress and benefit by being seen regularly.

When do I pay for sessions?
Families are asked to keep current and pay at the time of service. Island Therapies does not bill insurance companies, but instead provides super-bills for reimbursement.
Payment can be made by Zelle, FSA/HSA or credit card.   

Making a world of difference together is our goal – it’s all about teamwork!
