What is Early Childhood Intervention Supports?
Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) is a nationally consistent, best practice support approach for children 0-6 years old who have a developmental delay or disability, which provides individualised support for each child based on their needs.
The NDIS ECEI approach has been designed to support all children and their families to achieve better long-term outcomes, regardless of diagnosis. All children and families will be treated as individuals to ensure that they receive the right support to meet their goals and aspirations. The type of supports will be different for every child and their family according to their needs.
Eligible participants will have budgets built by ECEI Partners to reflect the child and family individual needs, applying the reasonable and necessary criteria. Budgets will allow flexibility in service delivery by ECEI providers to reflect the changing needs of the participant.
The provision of supports under early childhood intervention are expected to deliver outcomes for the child that will enable participation in mainstream or education from commencement of school. Each child’s NDIS plan will summarise the outcomes expected from early intervention and will be reviewed at least annually.
Providers of these supports can use the same claiming rules for travel, cancellation and report writing as those providing therapy supports.
