Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) is an evidence-based approach that focuses on providing children with developmental delays or disabilities with the support they need at an early age to maximize their potential. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides early childhood support to eligible children younger than 7 to promote their development, well-being and ability to take part in the community. Parents worried about their child’s growth and development may reach out to a medical practitioner or healthcare expert for help in identifying the kind of support their child requires. They can then put the parents in touch with Early Childhood Partners who can provide guidance regarding the NDIS.
After connecting with the NDIS, parents can discuss the support needs of their child during the planning meeting and come up with an ECEI plan which addresses those needs. This plan will outline the support and services funded by the NDIS such as therapies, support coordination or assistive technology. Plan management is a support that can be funded in an ECEI NDIS plan to manage and monitor the funds as well as to ensure timely payment of various service provider invoices. It is a support which is extremely helpful to parents who are new to the NDIS and do not want to stress about budget management. All they have to do to access plan management is to ask for it during the planning meeting.
