At Umbo, we’re a social enterprise who exists to lower wait times to allied health services across Australia. As all of our clinicians work online, we’re able to offer low wait times to our clients.
Please note that these estimated wait times provide general indications only and are not guaranteed. Actual wait times are dependent on a number of factors including the speciality area required, client availability and time taken to complete forms.
We will contact you within 1 business day of receiving your referral and aim to get your free trial booked in within 1 week if requested. After that the typical wait time to start therapy sessions is:
Occupational Therapy (adults): 2-3 weeks to first appointment
Occupational Therapy (children): 3-4 weeks to first appointment
Speech Pathology (adults and children): 1-2 weeks to first appointment
Home Modification and Functional Capacity Assessments: 6-8 weeks to first appointment
Mental Health Occupational Therapy (adults and children 12 years and over): 8 weeks to first appointment
Supported Independent Living Assessments: 6 weeks to first appointment, potentially longer if the client requires a mental health OT
