Connecting with an NDIS Early Childhood Partner
If you are concerned about your child’s development, you should speak to a professional early. Research shows that if the child does need assistance, the sooner they start, the more impactful the support can be.
Here are some steps:
- Contact your Medical Professional or an Early childhood Educator.
- Following your discussion contact your local Early childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) Partner (for children aged 0-7 years). Your ECEI Partner will assist you with
- a) Access request to NDIA.
b) Guide you with required reports or evidence based on your child’s need.
C) Assist you and work with you to understand your child’s need.
You don’t need a formal referral or diagnosis to access Early Intervention support
