Cancellation/Rescheduling of Sessions
Twenty-four hours' advance notice must be provided to the therapist prior to cancellation. Rescheduling requests are subject to the therapist's availability. Sessions may be canceled by the therapist. These sessions can be rescheduled according to the therapist's and clients' availability.
In order to maximize clients' therapy time it is very important to arrive on time. The ORU music therapy clinic reserves the right to discontinue treatment if late arrivals are deemed a problem.
Discontinuance of Service and "No Show" Policy (Withdrawal)
A client has a right to discontinue services for any reason with a 2 weeks' advance notice. A "no show" is when a client fails to show for a scheduled session without canceling or rescheduling the appointment. Without 24 hours' advanced notice, the service fee will be charged. With notice, rescheduling requests are subject to the therapist's availability. If a client fails to show for two consecutive appointments, he/she may become ineligible for services.
All of the music therapy sessions are provided and/or supervised by an ORU Music Therapy clinical team member. All music therapists at the ORU Music Therapy Clinic serve as board-certified music therapists (MT-BC), Licensed Professional Music Therapists (LPMT), and are a neurologic music therapy fellows (NMT-F). One of our music therapists holds a Ph.D. degree in music therapy and another holds a Master's degree in music therapy from a university program approved by the American Music Therapy Association.
Clients may be self-referred, referred by professionals (including physicians, counselors, social workers, occupational and speech therapists), or referred by various agencies or community facilities that provide services for clients. Therapists will decide whether each client is eligible for and an appropriate beneficiary from music therapy services after an initial assessment.
