The Early Childhood Intervention Service (ECIS) is funded by Department of Education and Early Childhood Development to support children with a disability or developmental delay from birth to school entry.
Services are tailored to meet the individual needs of each child and family. The focus is on supporting the child in their natural environments and in their every day experiences and activities. ECIS uses evidence based practice models and each family will work closely with a Key Worker who uses a family centered approach. The service focuses on the strengths of each child and their family to help build intervention strategies into the everyday routines of the family, to ensure functional skills are learned across a range of settings.
The ECIS team is made up of highly skilled and experienced clinicians. Each team member works in a trans-disciplinary way with each family and may also provide specialist consults with the key worker or short term direct specialist interventions in their specific discipline if necessary.
