If English is your second language or you don’t have access to a computer, then we suggest you have someone assist you with this process or have it explained to you in advance.
Yes! Registration for 2023 and 2024 intensives is now open. Please register via the links above but note that many of our intensives are fully subscribed and you may be added to the waitlist. Waitlists simply mean that the session is currently full and you may be contacted should another family pull out of their intensive or should additional spots become available.
We are hopeful that we will be able to schedule some pop up sessions in 2024, however for the moment we will not be announcing any pop up sessions until a later date. It is best to register for NAPA intensives in our existing clinics for the moment and we can always change your booking should we announce a pop up and you are successful in getting in.
Registering for our intensives is a commitment to the full three-week program. This typically runs Monday – Friday for three weeks straight (unless interupted by a public holiday). Where possible try to arrange any other appointments and all travel arrangements so it does not affect the allocated intensive hours and your child’s important therapy program and goals. NAPA cannot guarantee that we will be able to move the schedule or provide “make-up” sessions. Any missed sessions will still be charged at a full rate unless a medical certificate is provided.
We recommend that you put other therapy sessions on hold for the weeks your child is at the intensive program so they have time to both focus and rest. If you have existing specialist medical appointments that can’t be moved please let us know as soon as possible.
If you are unable to complete the full intensive then we suggest not registering for those dates so we can leave the spot open for a child who can attend the whole intensive. Should you not be able to complete days/sessions within an intensive due to other commitments, you will still be responsbible for payment of these sessions as your therapists will have been allocated for the full intensive program.
One Week Booster intensives are like a compressed version of our intensive program and are reserved for children who have been to NAPA previously. You can register your interest in joining one of our one week sessions on the registration form but please note that these intensives are not scheduled until roughly 8 weeks prior to the start date, so you will not hear about these on-week intensives until then.
You can find out more about the US/UK schedule and registration here.
US/UK Registration for 2024 intensives will be held from the 5th – 8th of October 2023.
This year we are only accepting one form per patient. Submitting multiple forms will not increase your chances of gaining an intensive spot.
Please note that we will always work off the most recently received registration form.
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 blocks.
If your Registration Request has gone through successfully, you will receive a confirmation email directly to the email address that you have registered with. You can utilise this confirmation email to check your selections at any time.
We suggest that you only apply for the dates you really can commit to and prioritise your top session dates in the order that you want them. Typically, children may do between 2-4 intensives a year. We recommend a minimum 6-week break between intensive sessions, including sessions you may be doing with other clinics. 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 intensives of your last, you will need discuss this with NAPA and receive permission from the NAPA therapy team. This year, the registration form will limit you to just 5 session choices.
If you are flexible and can do any intensive during the year or intensives in other clinics, then please mention this in the comments section of the registration form. Do not submit additional registration forms.
If you make an error on your registration form, we suggest that you reply to the confirmation email that you receive with the corrected information. Please note that if you choose to submit a new form, we will always work off the most recently received registration form.
You will receive a confirmation email to confirm your registration request and the selections you have made. This should be kept as a record of your registration request, but in no way guarantees that you have been successful in obtaining a spot in our program.
The registration process is an extremely busy time for NAPA as we schedule an entire year’s worth of intensives for all of our clinics. 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.
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 automatically 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 throughout the year, and these waitlist spots may be offered to you sooner rather than later.
Yes! Even if you have registered for sessions in 2023, you will need to complete the registration process again for 2024 indicating the sessions and preferences you are interested in for the new year.
At NAPA, we treat each calendar year seperately so you will need to complete this process each year.
Our normal cancellation policy applies to all intensive sessions once they have been confirmed and the deposit has been paid/NDIS Service agreement has been returned. For our full cancellation policy please click here.
Please note that we will only be in touch with you after registration if we have a space to offer your child. Due to the number of registrations we receive each year, we simply cannot get into contact with every family. If you have not heard from us, this means that you have missed out on a initial place in the intensives you have registered for but we will have automatically added you to our waitlists for those sessions so we may still get into contact with you further down the track if a spot opens up or as our team continues to build. We also suggest that you follow our facebook page as that is where last minute intensive spots often open up.
Please be aware that on occasions (and especially if you have a hotmail email address), emails from our central server can filter automatically into your junk folder. Please monitor these folders, especially in the weeks following registration, as that is where your intensive offers may go! It is best to add NAPA Centre as an approved sender of emails to your system to avoid this happening in the future.
Reach out to us at any time to ask your registration questions. You can submit them via email or we recommend calling one of our clinics to get your questions answered on the spot.
