NDIS - National Disability Insurance Scheme
The NDIS is Australia’s first national scheme for people with disability. It provides funding directly to individuals and supports people with disability to build skills and capability so they can participate in the community and employment.
What is the Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) approach?
The ECEI approach is how the NDIS supports children aged 0-6 years who have a developmental delay or disability and their families/carers. The ECEI approach supports families to help children develop the skills they need to take part in daily activities and achieve the best possible outcomes throughout their life.
