What is Early Childhood Intervention?

Every child is unique – and every child’s pathway to a positive future is different.

Discovering your child has a disability or developmental delay can be an overwhelming experience. Early intervention support services from Melbourne City Mission offers your family assistance every step of the way.

ECIS provides specialist services and support to infants and young children to aid in development, learning and wellbeing. Nurturing your child’s development in this early and crucial stage can help put building blocks in place for the future.

What’s included in an early intervention program?

We deliver early intervention support through a Key Worker approach. Our Key Workers are allied health professionals who act as your family’s main contact, while engaging expertise from across our team.

Your Key Worker will spend time getting to know your family in detail. They will also consult with other specialists to give your child the most appropriate support and care.

Your Key Worker will assist you to:

  • Connect to therapy, support services, resources and information
  • Design a tailored plan based on your child’s developmental goals
  • Develop strategies to enhance your child’s learning
  • Assist your child in familiar and new environments, such as home, childcare or kindergarten, and your local community
  • Get ready for transition to kindergarten or school

Our goal is to bring practitioners together to develop a holistic and best-practice plan for you.

Family support means we’re here for you, too

While supporting your child, we’re also here for you and your whole family. We work alongside you to grow your skills, knowledge and confidence so you can support your child’s development, everyday activities and family routines.

We offer a range of support groups for parents and joint parent and child groups to foster the development of skills and communication.

Access to NDIS Early Intervention Services

We work in the heart of local communities across northern and western Melbourne and we’re growing every day.

Our services are based at our offices and child care centres in Braybrook, Werribee, Brunswick and Mill Park.

We also offer outreach programs to support you at home, your child’s learning environment or in the community.

You can access an ECIS program if your child has funding through:

  • National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
  • Department of Education and Training (DET)
  • Helping Children with Autism (HCWA)
  • BetterStart funding
