Semester Based Registration & Policies

AFH Semester Based Registration and Policies
effective January 2015


Registration for Arts For Healing therapy services is ongoing throughout the year, although we encourage you to register well before Labor Day to secure your preferred session(s).

Fees for year-long therapy sessions and adaptive music lessons will be divided into two equal payments. Payments are due by September for the first semester and by January for the second semester.

For 16 week semester , fees are due in full before the first class. For any registration after these dates, payment is due in full at time of registration.

Arts For Healing reserves the right to cancel group classes due to insufficient enrollment. Tuition will be fully refunded.

Assessment and Placement

To ensure a client’s optimal placement with a therapist, parents/guardians of first time clients are required to interview in person with their child with Clinical/Founding Director, Karen Nisenson.

Therapy sessions and Adaptive Music lessons are scheduled on the basis of client and therapist availability. Arts For Healing makes every effort to accommodate each client’s schedule in assigning sessions.

Change of Therapist

Arts For Healing makes the best possible match before therapy sessions begin. However, if a substitute or change becomes necessary or desired, Arts For Healing will work in partnership with a client’s parents/guardians to recommend a solution that best meets the client’s needs.

What parents are saying

Daniel has grown in so many ways through the art and music sessions. He is expressing himself so much more clearly and fully. He seems to be so much more comfortable with who he is.
Cheryl, Daniel's mother
I've seen Manny move from being isolated and in his own world to being able to join his peers in school and even at home with his younger sister.
Jason, Manny's father
Her awareness of others and her ability to use her language has improved tremendously in the past few years. I think the music has been a real key in her development.

Heidi's mother
Dear Miss Karen, As you know, I auditioned for the play Honk, Jr. at my school. Guess what -- I got the lead role of Ugly! I think all of my work in music and theatre at Arts for Healing really helped me do a good job at the auditions. So thank you for helping me so much over the past 8 years. I'm really excited. Love, Brian "Music can always be there when you need it."

Dear Karen, you have been able to bring out Harold's smile and his joy of life. He can open up and let us know more of what he is feeling and thinking. What a gift for a parent!
