EARLY intervention is a key focus area within the National Disability Insurance Scheme with the aim of giving your child the best possible chance at life from the very beginning.
If your child is 0-6 years old and has a disability, or if there are concerns with their development, they may be eligible to receive support from the NDIS.
The first few years of a child’s life lay the foundation for their future development, so accessing the right support is extremely important.
Here’s how the NDIS can help:
The National Disability Insurance Agency, which implements the NDIS, has worked with a range of leading Australian early childhood intervention practitioners and researchers to find out the best possible systems for young children.
The NDIA designed the Early Childhood Early Intervention approach, which joins the dots between your child and a partner in the local community – called an early childhood partner.
Your early childhood partner is experienced in early childhood intervention and will provide assistance, advice and access to early intervention and support for your child.
Early intervention for a child with a developmental delay or disability in their early years is critical to achieving the best outcomes.
