Are they allowed to tell a relative of mine that they are working with my child?

I think it's only called HIPAA if you're a medical professional, but education definitely has its own ethics and confidentiality standards.

That said, if a therapist is working with a child within a school setting, the whole school is going to end up knowing unless they specifically protect that child for individual reasons. Only the relevant teachers should know the relevant details of the service, but the school community in general is going to see them coming and going, or have it marked on schedules, etc. So if you're in a community school, odds are high that relatives are going to find out about your kid's therapist.
