    The following cancellation monetary policy does not apply to Regional Center, Kern Family, and Easter Seals clients.

    A great deal of effort goes into arranging your treatment schedule. It is important to realize that this therapy time is being held exclusively for you. Clients who make the best and most rapid progress are those who diligently follow the recommended treatment schedule.

    If you must cancel an appointment FOR ANY REASON, the office must receive a 12-HOUR NOTICE by phone/text/email prior to the scheduled session or it will be considered a last minute cancellation. This policy enables us to keep our charges reasonable as well as retain our excellent speech-language therapists. If a session is cancelled last minute a charge of $30 will be due at the beginning of the next session.

    As a courtesy, the Scheduling department sends out a confirmation text two days before the session – if the front office does not hear back that the session is confirmed, or prior alternative arrangements have been made, the office will assume that the session will proceed as scheduled. Please make a point of confirming with the office so there is no confusion regarding the scheduled session.

    • If you confirm the appointment and do not show, or come later than 15 minutes past the start time of the appointment, you will be subjected to the $30 last minute cancellation fee.

    • If there is an emergency, or your child is sick, and you must cancel last minute (within 12 hours of session) you will be subjected to a $30 cancellation fee if proof of emergency or a doctor’s note is not provided.

    • Excessive cancellations - two or more last minute cancellations or cancellations that exceed 20% of approved authorization – the client will be at risk of being returned to the funding source or placed on a service hold. If a client is on a service hold, DV Therapy will not be able to hold/reserve the client’s time slot.

    • If you need to cancel the session, and you have given proper notice, the office will work with you to reschedule the appointment. A reschedule for a cancelled appointment should take place within 14 days of the original appointment.

    • If therapist is unavailable for the client session, DV Therapy will try to find an alternate therapist and/or find a date for a reschedule.

    If your child is being seen in a school, day care, or another off-site setting, IT IS THE PARENTS RESPONSIBILITY TO NOTIFY THE SCHEDULING DEPT, (323-426-6402) OF A CANCELLATION. Check your child’s field trip, special event, and vacation schedule to prevent a last minute cancellation. Please talk with your therapist prior to any session breaks to assure continuity of services, reschedules and to avoid cancellation charges.

    As a rule, therapy sessions will not be conducted on Federal holidays unless a special arrangement has been made between you and your therapist.


    This agreement must be signed and returned to our office prior to the commencement of treatment.

    I acknowledge receipt of the DV Therapy Client Service Agreement, and agree that I will be responsible for the payment of charges incurred as outlined in the packet. Specifically, I agree to pay for every scheduled appointment, whether I attend, cancel or miss the appointment, if I do not adhere to the guidelines for cancellation. Further, if any collection activities are necessary, I agree to pay all the expenses of such activities, including reasonable attorney’s fees and court costs.

    We LOVE DV Therapy Palmdale! My son has Autism and gets Speech. He was getting Occupational Therapy services and has since graduated with the help of Ms.Alyah! Ever since he started there has been a HUGE improvement in his speech and fine motor skills. My child loves going to his therapies here and gets excited when he sees his therapists! It’s such a nice feeling knowing he likes the people there and wants to go back week after week. The staff here are very professional and you can see that they really care about your child. Ms.Amber is great and really takes in mind what my child interests are and turns it into speech opportunities! We are so grateful for all the amazing support from DV Therapy Palmdale!
