Member Benefits

Training and Education

ECIA continues to offer regular forums to members that focus on the delivery of NDIS and transitioning your service and/or organisation to the new model.

We will shortly be launching our eLearning training for Does this Child Need Help?, which will provide information and support to people working with young children in mainstream settings where there are concerns about a child's development.

This resource is designed to assist professionals across a range of disciplines - from educators in the early childhood education and care sector to early childhood nurses and general practitioners in the health sector - the package is based on evidence based research and practice

We are also developing a comprehensive professional development program which will include monthly webinars and face to face workshops.


ECIA has a wide selection of resources to assist our members and the sector to ensure the highest quality of service is provided to families with children with a developmental delay and/or disability. These are all provided for download under the Resources menu item.
