When your child is sick, his/her performance in speech therapy is not optimal, and in turn, is less beneficial. Therefore, if your child has a fever of 100.4 degrees or more, has a yellow/green nasal discharge, or has vomited or had diarrhea within the past 24 hours, please call and leave a message at (703) 685-1070 for the Falls Church office and (703) 866-0344 for the Springfield office or email your clinician to cancel your child’s therapy session.
If your child is not well enough to attend school, they should not be brought to therapy.
Children must be symptom-free for 24 hours, without the use of medications including Tylenol.
Because we work so closely to your child’s mouth, our concern is not only your child’s health, but also maintaining the health of our staff.
We need to be sensitive to the other families. We see many immunosuppressed children and bringing sickness into the office puts them at risk.
Thank you for adhering to this sick policy.
