SCHEDULE A SERIES

Locations

To discuss scheduling please call me @ 408-750-4302 or email: andrea@andrealbowers.com

I am available in Lodi, CA, and in Seattle and Bellingham, WA in hotel or private lodging. If you rent a hotel or airbnb I can come to your space 2 times per day to give lessons or give lessons in the space I arrange.

I work in series for 2, 3, or 4 days.  Families have found that my lessons are very dense – a lot of information condensed in each day – and often fewer lessons are needed to achieve the full “story” of the series. Some locations fill quickly so consider booking in advance. Many clients book 3-6 series ahead so they are guaranteed the dates and times of their choosing.

My travel expenses are included in the cost of a Series in Seattle or Bellingham, WA. If you travel to Lodi, CA to see me I can give you some options for lodging.

Location: 2 day Series 3 day Series 4 day Series
Lodi $960 $1440 $1920
Bellingham and Seattle $1760 $2390 $3020

What to expect during lessons

RECOMMENDATION Plan to begin with a series of lessons twice a day for 3-4 days. Each lesson is maximum 45 min. Optimally your child will have a 30min to 1 hour break between lessons each day when he/she should eat and relax. 

WHAT TO BRING Clothing your child can move freely in. Toys, bottle, and food that will help your child feel comfortable during the lessons. If your child needs to nurse I will use the opportunity to do some very fine detail work. I encourage many parents to try to have their child be asleep for one or more lessons so I can work in areas the child doesn’t usually like touched like their head and neck. Bring a video camera if you wish to record my suggestions or parts of the lesson to share with others. Plan to take notes about home activities. If you have follow-up questions once you return home feel free to email me and include video so I can see what you are referring to.

PARENT/FAMILY LESSONS I do not usually have extra times available during a series.  If you wish to have siblings or parents receive lessons I recommend you book in advance.  It is a great idea so don’t hesitate if you think it could help.  The whole family has success together so it’s important that everyone get what they need.

TWIN or SIBLING LESSONS Often one twin has more movement issues, but usually both twins would benefit from lessons.  When I am seeing two children in the same family I will work for 1.5 hrs alternating between the children 15 or 20 minute intervals, or as needed.

ADDITIONAL CONSULTATION TIME If you would like extra time to discuss home actitvites, equipment, or school issues please plan to shedule additional time. Bring equipment such as wheelchairs or braces you wish me to evaluate. If you wish to have suggestions for goals on an upcoming IEP I can have that discussion near the end of your series after I am familiar with your child. Zoom calls work really well before you schedule or once you have returned home. I charge $100 for each 30 min and the average time spent is usually 1 hr.

OBSERVERS Adult family members and caregivers are always welcome. If therapists or medical professionals observe your childs lesson be aware that my attention will be divided and your childs lesson will include demonstration and explanation. I am happy to do this if you feel it will be helpful in coordinating your team of providers for your child, but if videotaping as I work will suffice it is preferable.

Can YOU Cancel?  A Series must be cancelled 4 weeks in advance. If your child is not able to be present for a scheduled lesson in a series you may substitute a family member or someone else in that appointment.  I am not able to postpone unused lessons to a later series.

What if I have to cancel?

Pre-paid lessons will be refunded if I am not able to complete the trip for any reason.  Please make sure to read the cancellation/refund policy included with your invoice at time of payment.
