New Directions For Young Adults

Application Instructions:

Thank you for your interest in New Directions and our customized services.

Prior to setting up an interview and personal meeting with our staff, we ask that you complete our online application (located on the bottom of this page) and attend our program tour. Once submitted, our Director of Admissions will then call you within 24 business hours to schedule your program tour and appointment. Program tour meetings can be scheduled virtually using Microsoft Teams.

Typically, students and parents/guardians will attend the intake appointment together; however, this is not mandatory. Our clinical staff will review your application along with any educational evaluations and/or psychological evaluations that you provide. These should be emailed to [email protected] or faxed to (954) 571-5265 before your tour date for our review.  

During your initial meeting, we will discuss our service recommendations and associated costs.  You will also receive a tour of the apartment complex and the residences where our students reside.

We look forward to meeting with you. If you have any questions about the application process, you can call (954) 571- 5102.

Application Steps:

  1. Please complete the Demographic Information Request below and pay the $75 application fee.
  2. Once received, our Admissions Director will call you within 24-business hours to help schedule your program tour.
  3. You will also immediately receive an automated email response which will instruct you where to send previous IEPs, educational, psychological/ psychiatric evaluations for our clinical team to review.
  4. You will also receive (within 24 hours) a link from “Ping MD” to your email.  This will allow you to complete the remainder of our online application.

*Please note that our application is several pages and can comfortably be completed at your leisure before you attend your program tour. This information is often helpful for our professional staff in working to customize the individual service plan (ISP). Please note that all information in the electronic database is kept confidential.
