The Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) approach is available to all children aged under 7 with a developmental delay or disability. https://www.eciavic.org.au/abouteci/about-eci
Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) is the process of providing specialised support and services for infants and young children with disability and/or developmental delay, and their families in order to promote development, well-being and community participation.
The role of ECI support is to assist parents and carers to:
Enjoy their child and family
Help their child develop skills and abilities to participate in and enjoy daily life, and;
Understand the kinds of experiences which can assist their child’s growth and development and what they can do to help
Why are the early years important?
The early childhood years lay the foundation for all future development.
Recent scientific evidence shows that early experiences literally shape our lives by affecting the way the young brain develops. What happens to us in the early years has a major effect on our health and social development right through to adulthood. Therefore, we must ensure that children's early experiences are positive - that they have a secure foundation for development.
At Think Say Sing Move Play Childhood Development we have years of training specialising in early intervention. We are here to support you and your child in achieving the best outcomes. We provide Key Worker Support and specialised therapies as well as linking closely with other providers to ensure a holistic service is available to families.
