The Motor Development Clinic is partially self-supportive, thus fees for the services rendered have to be charged. A one time fee is charged for the assessment battery which includes the administration and scoring of the tests, a brief assessment summary, and an ITP. There is no charge for the consultation with the parent, clinic director, and clinic coordinator. The assessment fee is based on the number of assessments administered. A fee for the therapy is also charged. This fee varies according to: 1) grouping (individual or small group sessions) and 2) length of the quarter therapy sessions.

Schedule and Times
The Motor Development Clinic offers four therapy sessions each year which follow the university's quarter system. For the fall, winter, and spring quarters the clinic operates for eight weeks, meeting once or twice a week, for 50 minutes each session. The clinic opens in early afternoon with the first session usually beginning at 2 p.m. and subsequent sessions throughout the afternoon.

For the summer quarter the clinic operates within a more condensed schedule. Clients attend for longer periods each day, but for fewer weeks. The groups are larger than the school-year program and all clients participate in the same basic activities. The specific schedule for summer up due to the tight scheduling of the clinic hours. This includes illness, vacations, etc.

Two kinds of therapy instructions are offered to the clients during the school year; group or individual sessions. Groups of two or three are assigned according to their ages and abilities, with individual sessions being offered only when appropriate. After the Individual Therapy Program (ITP) consultation meeting involving the parent, clinic director, and clinic coordinator, clients are placed according to the need.

The specific activities for each therapy session are arranged by the clinician with approval from the clinic coordinator. The tasks presented to the client are sequenced, leading to the accomplishment of the ITP goals and objectives. At the conclusion of each school quarter, a reevaluation of goals and objectives occurs. This information is shared with the parent in a quarter evaluation report.
