The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) are holding online information sessions about the change to the age range for children supported by the NDIS early childhood approach. As a result of the ECEI Reset consultation, from 1 July 2023 the age of children supported under the early childhood approach changed to include children younger than 9. Previously, the early childhood approach supported children younger than 7. Changing the age to include children younger than 9, ensures children and their families and carers are supported during and after their transition to primary school.
Who should attend?
- Parents and carers of children with developmental concerns, delay, or disability.
- Community workers who support children and families with developmental concerns, delay, or disability.
- Teachers and Educators
- Health professionals
Information sessions are being held throughout November. You can register for a session here – The early childhood approach for children younger than 9 | Humanitix
Please note that EACH is the NDIS partner delivering the Early Childhood Approach in the ACT, Southern NSW, South West Sydney and Ipswich. When the NDIS refer to ‘Early Childhood Partner’, they are referring to EACH in these regions.
