If you have concerns about your child’s development, the best time to get help is now.

The Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) program is designed to support children under seven who may have a developmental delay or disability. 

With early intervention, often we can help your child to develop essential skills that allow them to participate in everyday activities alongside their peers. Some families find that early intervention removes the need for long-term support, while others see significant progress in their child’s development and improvement in their wellbeing. No matter your situation, ECEI can provide information and support to help your child realise their full potential.

Wanslea is the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) partner that delivers Early Childhood Early Intervention support for children aged under seven.

Supporting your family

Our ECEI practitioners are trained professionals in early childhood development and will tailor a support plan based on your child’s individual needs. They will work closely with you to:

  • Understand the needs of your child and family
  • Provide helpful information, connect you and your child with the most appropriate supports in your area
  • Provide short term supports / interventions
  • Assess your child’s needs
  • Support you to set goals for your child
  • Facilitate access to the National Disability Scheme if eligible
  • Develop an individualised plan with you if your child is eligible for the scheme 
  • Support you to implement your child’s approved plan
