What is Early Childhood Early Intervention?

For parents and families of young children with a disability, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) can provide much-needed support. The NDIS supports early intervention plans tailored to the individual needs of children and their families.

In this blog, we’ll discuss how the NDIS can assist with Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI).

What is Early Childhood Early Intervention?

Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) is a program for children aged 0-6 diagnosed with a disability or developmental delay. The goal of ECEI is to help these children reach their full potential and acquire essential skills. Through ECEI, children receive personalised support from therapists, educators, and other professionals who can help them develop cognitive, physical, social, and emotional skills.

At Healthy Emporium, we become the main point of contact for parents or guardians of children living with a disability or experiencing a developmental delay. During this time, we help to ensure families receive the support they need while also connecting them with supports on how to navigate daily routines and activities.

How does the NDIS fit in?

The NDIS provides funding for ECEI services to eligible infants and children aged 0-9. The primary purpose of the funding is to ensure that every child has access to quality early intervention services regardless of their financial means. Through the NDIS funding package, parents can choose which early intervention services best meet their child’s needs and preferences.

The NDIS also provides additional support for families by covering costs associated with travel or equipment needed for therapy sessions. In addition, the NDIS provides respite care for parents so they have time away from caring responsibilities if needed. This ensures that parents can take care of themselves as well as their child’s needs.
