NDIS – Early Childhood Early Intervention Approach

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new system of disability support that is being introduced across Australia. The roll out of the NDIS has commenced in NSW and the NDIS Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) Approach will replace the supports provided under the NSW state system, Commonwealth Helping Children With Autism (HCWA) and Better Start Programs. 

A transitional approach has been implemented until the 30 June 2018, with the NSW government funding existing early childhood intervention providers to deliver the ECEI approach. The NDIA’s approach to providing ECEI supports under the full scheme NDIS will be in place from July 2018 when the NSW transition is complete.

The transitional approach in NSW is designed to enable these service providers to continue to work with children and families during transition, connecting them with community support services, providing information and supporting children to access and individualised funded plan where required.
