In order to make sure UMAP is a good fit for you or your loved one and to make sure your time here is well spent, our application process is thorough. Before you get started, the following things may be helpful to know:
- We ask that you provide recent medical records related to recent speech and language reports (via fax or shipped) to give us a better understanding of your particular skills and limitations. Discharge records are also helpful.
- If you are interested, we also provide tours of our facility where you can meet our clinicians and other staff you will be interacting with regularly. We can also schedule an evaluation and testing before you come to UMAP to get a better sense of how to design your intensive therapy program.
- For those coming from further away, we still would like to get to know you before you arrive. If we can set up a video conference to interact with you before your arrival, this is helpful for all involved: you get to see some of the faces of those who will be leading your intensive program and get any remaining questions answered and we will get a sense of how best to frame your therapy. If video conferencing is not available, we would still like to speak with you or your loved one about your situation.
- We also encourage you to reach out to current or past participants of the program. We can arrange a connection if you’d like to pursue this.
