Our early childhood intervention team works with families across Melbourne to reveal their child’s true abilities.

We believe great things can happen when children and their families have access to the right supports. We’ve put together a team of early childhood intervention professionals who work with your child,  family, and other important people in your child’s life to support their skill development,  wellbeing and participation.

Our Melbourne early childhood intervention team come to you and connect your child and family to services and supports to help them develop their everyday skills.

Our early childhood intervention services support children with a disability or developmental delay aged 0-6 years.

Our early intervention approach aims to help your child to learn and be more involved in activities through:

  • develop self-care skills such as getting dressed, feeding themselves, toileting
  • interacting with others and making friends
  • developing their communication skills
  • assistive technology and equipment to make tasks easier for your child.

We use approaches that are known to work and use your child’s interests, strengths, and everyday routines to build their skills and independence.  As parents, you’ll be supported so you can help your child to develop their skills in everyday life.
