Registration for our Australian clinics will open for the NAPA 2021 Intensives on Thursday 3rd September at 10am.
From this day, you will be able to register for any of the listed 2021 intensive sessions, including all intensives to be held in Sydney, our new Melbourne Clinic and our two pop up clinics in the Gold Coast and Auckland.
The 2021 Australian Schedule can be found here.
Prior to registration, you should ensure that you have completed our NAPA Patient Intake forms so that we have all the up to date information about your child ahead of the registration. We cannot add your child into a session without the intake form being completed.
If you are intending on registering for the upcoming Auckland pop up, please complete the Australian Patient Intake form ahead of the registration.
Before September 3rd, you can plan and prioritise which intensives in the 2021 NAPA Australia schedule that you are going to register for.
Read below for some handy hints…
On Thursday 3rd September go to the NAPA website: www.napacentre.com.au
There will be a live registration button you click on from 10am. It will not work before 10am.
NAPA are unable to take booking requests over the phone, so make sure you can be at a computer on the day.
Registrations for all of our intensives will open on Thursday 3rd September at 10am. Based on our experience in previous years, it is highly advisable that you register at this time or get someone to register on your behalf as sessions can fill up fast. Registrations remain open indefinitely so you can still register for any intensive after the 3rd September. Once a session is fully booked, your child will be added to the session waitlist.
No. Registering is an expression of interest only and simply lets us know that you are interested in that session. NAPA will be in contact to confirm if you have been successful in securing a spot in the intensive and will send you through confirmation information and an invoice for the session. Your child’s intensive only becomes confirmed once you have paid a $1,000 deposit or completed the NDIS Service Agreement (for NDIS Managed and Plan Managed clients only).
Yes. Our school holiday sessions are in highest demand and tend to book out the fastest. If you are not particular about when your child completes their intensive, or your child is not yet at school, then we suggest you choose options outside of the school holiday periods.
Don’t forget that NAPA’s team of amazing therapists is expanding, so more places come up as the year goes on.
While you are able to register for as many as you would like, we suggest that you only apply for the dates you really can commit too and prioritise your top 3 session dates.
We would prefer you to register for your key sessions you are interested in. Within an application you will be able to add a note about your flexibility or top session preferences, rather than registering for every session throughout the year.
Please only register for a session date once, don’t have 20 friends apply for one session date on your behalf. This will not improve your child’s chances of being offered a place.
Typically, children may do between 2-4 intensives a year. We highly recommend a minimum two-month (8-9 week) break between intensive sessions. You will continue to see gains after your child’s session, and it is just as important to build off those gains as the intensive session itself. If you would like to schedule another session within two months of your last, you will need discuss this with NAPA and receive permission from the NAPA therapy team.
The registration process is an extremely busy time for NAPA as we schedule an entire year’s worth of intensives for the two clinics and the pop-up sessions at this time. It is a manual process and very complex as we try and ensure that as many families as possible get a session and each program is appropriate for each child. Please allow us some time to come back to you by email and confirm if your child has gained a place in an intensive or has been added to a waitlist for a session. If you haven’t heard from us after 14 days, please just drop us an email.
If your child is offered a place, then you will need to complete payment of your deposit to secure and hold that position within 7 days. Once paid, your place is secure in that intensive.
Whilst your child may initially miss out on a preferred place due to demand, we process a number of rounds of applications over the weeks post the registration opening as families accept or decline their session offers. Your child will be added to the waitlist to each of the sessions that you registered for, and we will contact you by email if an appropriate place can be found. Keep in mind that things can easily change in other family’s lives through the year, and these waitlist spots may be offered to you sooner rather than later.
At all times, NAPA will abide by the current restrictions as advised by the relevant state authorities. If you register and pay a deposit for a 2021 intensive that is affected by a COVID closure or by state/international travel restrictions, we will work with you to reschedule your intensive for a later date when things have settled down (subject to availability). If you need to cancel/change an intensive due to COVID reasons, you will not be required to pay a cancellation/reschedule fee. You must provide evidence of the COVID reason however.
You will have the option on the registration form to select your preferred clinic: Sydney or Melbourne, or preferred pop-up location: Gold Coast (Queensland) or Auckland (New Zealand). Please ensure that you are registering for the correct location.
To register for intensives in our US clinics, you will need to complete to process again when registration opens for all of our US locations: Los Angeles, Boston and Austin.
We strongly suggest that you get yourself completely organised ahead of the intensive registration day in order to maximise your chances. This includes making sure your child’s patient intake information is completed and is up to date, and that you have prioritised which intensives you would really like to get in to and have considered some back–up dates as options.
