Our work is generously funded by charitable donations, and Brainwave subsidises most of the assessment cost for each child. The parental contribution requested for therapy would never be more than £500 for a one day initial assessment. The parental contribution for the subsequent one-day reassessment, every 4-6 months, would be £400. You can see a full list of our fees below.

We appreciate that for some families these costs may be a barrier and therefore would encourage you to speak to one of our Family Facilitators, who will be able to provide information on potential sources of funding. Alternatively, see information below on grants.


We offer a means-tested Therapy Access Fund (only available to those living in the UK) to help some families cover the cost of using Brainwave. If you are interested in finding out more about our Therapy Access Fund, please contact us via email therapyaccessfund@brainwave.org.uk.

You may be eligible for financial support through a grant like Just4Children.
