Schedule of Fees 2024

 

Therapy Costs

 

Weekly and Intensive Therapy Sessions

  • Each session is charged at $193 per session. These sessions run for 50 minutes and include an additional 10 minutes for notes/session preparation and cleaning.

Intensive Therapy Cost

  • Total Intensive Therapy costs are dependent on how many hours per day your child is doing therapy. To calculate the total cost of an intensive, simply multiply the above rate by the number of days (typically 15 as most intensives go for 3 weeks) and the number of sessions per day. For example, a 3-hour daily program will have a total cost of $8,685 ($193 x 3 x 15) + $289.50 for the Intensive Summary report. Likewise, a 4-hour daily program will have a total cost of $11,580 ($193 x 4 x 15) + $289.50 for the Intensive Summary report.

Therapy Evaluations

  • Therapy Evaluations (typically your first appointment with NAPA) are charged at a rate of $482.50 (2.5 hours) per discipline. This price covers the initial appointment which will consist of one hour face-to-face time and additional non-face-to-face time where therapists will interpret and document their findings and write specific and tailored 6-month goals for your child.If you require a written report following this evaluation, physiotherapy and speech therapy reports are charged at an additional $193 each, and the occupational therapy report is charged at an additional $386. Occupational therapy evaluation reports are more complex and subsequently take more time to complete. You will be asked if you require a Therapy Evaluation report during your initial appointment.

Additional Charges

  • Occasionally your child’s sessions may require the creation of specific resources (such as a personalised home exercise program – HEP) or prior preparation for specialised or child-specific AAC. If this work is to be completed outside of or prior to your pre-arranged session times, it will be charged out at $193 per hour. Once we are fully aware of your child’s needs, we will provide you with an estimate for these services.
  • There may be some additional charges for your intensive if your child is deemed suitable for Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES), including Vital Stim and Task-Specific Electrical Stimulation (TASES). As these therapy styles are optional, this will be discussed up front with you by your therapist.
  • Goal writing – As part of working under the NDIS, NAPA must create 6 monthly goals for your child. This ‘Goal setting session’ will be placed into your child’s schedule for each discipline every 6 months for those children completing regular weekly sessions at NAPA (1 hour charged) or 30 mins per discipline for drop in sessions.
  • Phone consultations with families, support workers, therapy team or schools may be organised but will be charged at our hourly fee if anticipated to go beyond 15 minutes in duration.
  • Pop up Intensives also have an additional travel and resource preparation fee. You can find details here.
  • NMES Units for home use – are now available through NAPA at a cost of $1000 + GST. This price includes the Chatanooga NMES unit, 3 packs of electrodes and a written home program from your therapist.
