Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) with NDIS supports families and carers to help children develop the vital skills they need to take part in daily activities and reach their developmental milestones.

ECEI supports children under seven years of age. One of the main goals of ECEI is to enable children with disability or developmental delay to develop their skills and participate in day-to-day activities.

If your child is between the age of zero and six years and has a disability or developmental delay, they are likely eligible for ECEI. ECEI is based on early intervention, therefore you do not need a formal diagnosis to access it.

When it comes to ECEI support, MADEC’s expert Support Coordination team provides Support Coordination to assist you in understanding your child’s ECEI Plan and discuss supports available such as Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Psychology, Consumables and Low-Cost Assistive Technology.

The types of supports you can access for your child will depend on their ECEI Plan and early intervention support needs. MADEC’s Support Coordinators can help you and your family understand and implement your child’s plan, make links to the community, mainstream and other Government services, source and connect you with the best providers for your child’s circumstances to ensure that they are receiving the most out of their funded supports.

ECEI and Support Coordination for children under the age of seven paves the way for your child to receive support as early as possible in their life with the aim to minimise the amount of complex support they may require as they grow up.
