Professional Membership

When you become a member of ECIA you will have access to resources, services, tools and professional networks that support and develop your career to assist children with developmental delay and/or disability, and their families. Membership is an invaluable resource which gives you the opportunity to connect and learn on both a local and national level. Members can stay in touch with the latest developments in early childhood intervention and any new information about the NDIS and its delivery across Australia. Your membership will also assist ECIA to provide a voice on issues that affect young children and their families through information, education and advocacy.
