1 August BUSHKids open three new ECEI centres in Central Queensland August 1, 2018 By Kris Murphy Sector Development 0 Central Queensland communities have recently received a boost in the early childhood early intervention (ECEI) sector with BUSHKids officially opening three new NDIS Early Childhood Intervention centres last week, in Rockhampton, Gladstone and Emerald. This ECEI program is an extension of BUSHKids current service offering and means that children aged zero to six who have a developmental delay and/or disability will be able to receive personalised support and services, achieving better long-term outcomes. For remote and regional Queenslander's this is a step in the right direction, by providing better access to free early intervention allied healthcare for children and their families. BUSHKids chief executive, Carlton Meyn said that putting together the team of professionals wasn't something they rushed. "The team has been in place since December last year and following extensive training from the NDIS and BUSHkids' own early childhood specialists, we started working with kids with developmental delay and disability during February." BUSHKids have been supporting the health and wellbeing of Queensland's regional, rural and remote communities for over 80 years. For more details of the launch, visit the BUSKids website.
