0 to 6 Early Childhood Intervention Supports
Koorana provides early intervention such as support with speech therapy, occupational therapy, behavioural supports or physiotherapy may assist a child who has developmental delay or disability.
Who is ECEI for?
Early childhood early intervention (ECEI) support is available for any child with a suspected or confirmed developmental delay or disability. It is available for ALL children aged 0 – 6 years. No diagnosis or medical referral is needed.
What is the ECEI approach?
Families can contact their Early Childhood Partners if they have concerns about their child’s development or if concerns have been raised by yourself or other parties such as the team at the day care centre, preschool etc. Your Early Childhood Partner will provide you with information and local supports that will assist with the unique needs of your child, through the ECEI Approach. The Early Childhood Partner will provide short term assistance and guide you with the NDIS application, if it is needed.
You simply contact your ECEI partner and they will:
- Make an assessment of individual children’s developmental progress;
- Provide short-term intervention support;
- Support and facilitate NDIS access for children with more severe and permanent intervention support needs; and
- Connect families to community supports where appropriate.
There is NO charge or gap payment required.
