Payment Plan

We understand that despite our best efforts to make all our services affordable the cost of an educational or psychological assessment can create additional stress and worry.  That is why we created our interest free payment plans to help support you in financing the cost of your assessment.

You can apply for a payment plan by completing our payment plan application form, which can be found at the very bottom of this page.  If you have already attended a consultation and received a post consultation letter from us with our estimate of fees, you need only complete the payment plan application and if accepted, an agreement will be sent to you by email shortly afterwards.  

If you have not attended a consultation with us and we have not provided you with an estimate of our fees, you can still complete our application form but we will need to send an estimate of our fees out to you before we send you the payment plan agreement.

The agreement will be sent by email can be completed and submitted to us online.

We will require the initial payment before your first appointment.  the remaining payments will follow monthly on a date that is convenient for you.

For example

Jane is looking to spread the cost of an Autism Diagnostic Assessment for her daughter over 4 months.  As Jane has already attended a consultation with her psychologist she has since received an estimate of fees, along with other information on how to proceed.  

Jane next goes online and completes our payment plan application form on our website.

Holly, her Case Manager receives the form, checks and logs it and sends it to The Practice Manager for review.

The Practice Manager reviews the application and agrees to the terms sending Jane a payment plan agreement to sign.  

Jane receives the agreement, checks it to ensure she is happy with the terms and signs it online.

The Practice Manager receives the completed agreement and logs this against Jane's case, informing Holly that approval has been given to go ahead with the assessment.

Holly confirms Jane's appointments whilst the initial payment is charged against Jane's credit/debit card.

Jane next receives a request by email to confirm a direct debit mandate with GoCardless so that The Practice MK can collect her monthly payments.

Jane's 1st payment follows on her preferred day the following month.
