As the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is rolling out across Australia, many parents have been left with questions about how the changes will affect their young children. The Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) has been put in place to provide disability support for children from birth to their seventh birthday. The program is designed to give parents access to targeted disability support to help their child's development during this critical period.
If you want to offer your disabled child the best chance in life, you may be looking for ways to give them access to the healthcare and education they need. Unfortunately, the mainstream healthcare and educations systems are not designed to meet the needs of disabled children. This is where specialist disability services come in. When I was seeking additional support for my disabled child, my friend suggested that I contact a local disability service. The staff at the service were really helpful and I have now enrolled my son at a school and signed him up for additional support.
