NDIS Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI)
EACH is an NDIS Partner in the Community delivering Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) Services in Queensland, South-West Sydney, Southern New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory. The ECEI program helps families with children aged 0 - 6 with assistance, advice and access to the supports in your local community.
If your child is aged 0 - 6 and has a disability, or if there are concerns with their development, they may be eligible to receive support from the NDIS through the ECEI program.
Providing quality intervention early in your child’s life reduces the possible need for longer-term intervention and will support them over time to lead an ordinary life.
As the NDIS Partner delivering ECEI services, EACH will be the first point of contact for parents and carers who have a baby or young child with developmental delay or disability, we will work with families to ensure they have access to supports quickly and easily.
There are a wide range of supports available:
- Supports can be offered in a range of everyday environments such as at home, childcare, playgroup, sporting and community activities
- Families and carers will also be supported to help their children develop and use new skills
- Every child and family will require different types of supports and services according to their needs
- Partners delivering ECEI will work with families to provide the right level of support based on the needs of each child and family
We will be working in the community to identify the most effective intervention supports children will need. We will support both inclusion in universal services currently in the community as well as providing a pathway into the NDIS for children who require longer-term support.
