Early Childhood Early Intervention Service

Recently, I attended a seminar regarding families getting help for children without a diagnosis through NDIS. Uniting Care is the Early Childhood Partner for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in the Robina service area, which includes the Gold Coast and Hinterland.

Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) can offer a range of supports for families with a child aged 0-6 years who has either a disability or a developmental delay. The types of supports offered will be different for every child and their family according to their individual needs. The aim of ECEI is to provide parents and families with the knowledge, skills, and support to optimise their child’s development and ability to participate in family, early childhood education and care settings, and in broader community life.

Like I mentioned earlier, children do not need a diagnosis to utilize this service. Carer’s and parents can complete the three part form themselves and contact the service directly and they will be directed to the relevant service available to them Remember, children will all develop at their own pace, but if you feel there is something you are not sure about, you can always ask our educators, or alternatively, I
have attached a very broad milestones check list that you can refer to. Again, this is only a rough guide for you to use and its always worth seeking advice if you are unsure.

Please make the time to read through the information attached and do not hesitate to speak to your Centre director or your child’s teacher if you have any concerns.
