Founded in 2008 by Lynette LaScala, the Neurological and Physical Abilitation (NAPA) Centre is focused towards providing a range of techniques, therapies, and modalities worldwide to assist in the abilitation process.
Lynette’s son Cody nearly drowned on his first birthday the nanny thought he crawled to his mother. When Lynette got a strange feeling, she went to check on Cody only to discover him at the bottom of the pool. She began CPR immediately, but it took paramedics and doctors nearly an hour to get a pulse. By this time, Cody’s parents were suggested to leave Cody and continue their life.
It became Lynette’s mission to give Cody the best possible life. After going between coma and semi-comatose, Cody required an at home breathing program that lasted two years. Cody gained more progress after finding a program in Poland and he was able to walk with minimal assistance. However, after a decompression surgery for a neck injury at the age of 21, Cody became paralysed. Rather than accepting the diagnosis, Cody was determined and began moving again with more therapy.
Lynette had decided to developed a new mission, which would be to provide various therapy techniques to other children who were in need of assistance. The NAPA Centre was introduced. The Centre offers services in hourly or intensive three-week therapy sessions.
NAPA Centre delivers innovative therapy technique to children that have a range of developmental and neurological requirements. It is our mission to provide children and their family with the hope they need using a fun and interactive environment.
Using methods of interdisciplinary teamwork and education it is our goal to promote and increase awareness, while sustaining inventive practices. In addition, as an acting teaching clinic we are fully committed to ensuring our therapists are provided with exceptional educational experiences while remaining up to date on current practices and being connected to academic communities.
Intensive therapy programs are now offered in several locations worldwide, including Los Angeles, CA, Boston, MA (Coming May, 2018), of course Sydney, Australia.
