Fees & Payment

Fees for the academic year 1st September 2018 – 31st August 2019

I operate a simple and transparent pricing structure with a single rate for all. I no longer offer reductions but try to keep my fees as affordable as I can for everyone.

In return I will not lock you into a contract, package or minimum number of hours of support unless this is what you feel you need.

I will always agree the fees with you before going ahead with any work.

I will offer one initial 30 minute consultation to any new organisation or client, free of charge, with no further obligation, before undertaking work.  This can take place face to face at a mutually convenient location, or over the phone. Contact me to book!

My fee is £60/hour. This rate includes travel within 5 miles of my office base (10 mile round trip).

Example: Observe a child in school (1 – 2 hours), produce a comprehensive written report with recommendations collated from this observation and other information such as medical/school reports (3 hours).  This would typically cost £300, plus travel if applicable.  If required to attend a follow up meeting with staff and parents/carers this would add a further hour to the total, making the total due £360.  Complex reports might require over 3 hours for writing up, although this is rare.

Or you might ask me to meet with a student on a weekly basis for 45 mins-1 hour; for example to carry out post-diagnosis work.  There would be approximately 30-45 minutes additional preparation/follow up work involved so the weekly cost would be somewhere between £75-£105, plus travel if applicable.

Please note that there might be additional costs for resources – such as social stories or visual prompts, where agreed in advance – and travel, depending on location.

Travel costs

These will be invoiced at the HMRC approved rate of 45p/mile for the whole journey where the whole journey exceeds 10 miles. 

My base for the purposes of calculating mileage is MK44 1EG.  I do not charge for time spent travelling.

Please contact me if you need any further clarification regarding my fee structure.

Payment

Payment should always be made within 15 days of the invoice date.

I prefer payment by BACS (direct bank transfer), but will also accept payment by cheque, cash or PayPal.
