Early Childhood Intervention Service
Early Childhood Intervention Services (ECIS) support children with a disability or developmental delay from birth to school entry, and their families.
We aim to help you and your child to participate in the everyday activities that all children and families do. We recognise that you may need additional ideas, support, equipment or developmental programs to achieve this. This is where ECIS comes in.
ECIS recognises that families are children’s first and most influential teachers. Families are the primary influence on children’s learning and development.
