Fees

Our fee structure applies to both private and NDIS clients 

INITIAL CONSULTATION

First appointments here at Nurture are often parent consultations. Our clinicians often have to gather a significant amount of information during your child's first session to understand your child's unique needs and goals and determine next steps. This therefore often leaves the child feeling rather lonely and neglected during the session. Children are also very intuitive and our clinicians recommend not discussing about your child's needs and areas of support in their presence. A parent consultation, either done in the clinic or over the phone, is therefore required. 

Initial consultation (45-mins): $320.08

Initial consultation (30-mins): $266.73

Our initial consultation fee includes either a 30/45-minutes session, and time spent on reviewing case history notes and other relevant information (i.e. previous reports). 

Following the initial consultation, your clinician will provide a recommendation regarding any formal/informa assessments that needs to be carried out. A quote will be provided on how much the assessment will cost as it highly depends on the complexity of your child's presentation and needs. 

THERAPY

We will recommend the most appropriate therapy duration and frequency (weekly, fortnightly etc) according to your child's presentation and needs. Most therapy sessions however run for 45-mins and are booked in on either a weekly or fortnightly basis. Once a suitable appointment time slot has been identified, your Speech Pathologist and/or Occupational Therapist will reserve this appointment slot and book out a block of Speech Therapy or Occupational Therapy for your child. 

Pricing (effective 29th July July 2024)

60-min therapy session - $266.73

Our billing includes not only the time spent in direct therapy sessions but also the time dedicated to preparation, follow-up, and other necessary correspondence related to your child’s care. This holistic approach ensures that all aspects of your child’s therapy are accounted for. Our therapy session fee includes a 45/60 minutes session and 21 minutes of preparation and paperwork time.
