ECIA Best Practice Project - Early Childhood Intervention (May 2017 to June 2018)

Early Childhood Intervention Australia (ECIA) has been funded by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to undertake the Best Practice in Early CHildhood Intervention Project (project).

The project, which was carried out over a one-year timeframe, focused on supporting the implementation of nationally consistent best practice guidelines in early childhood intervetnion in the provision of supports through Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) partners.

The overall purpose of the project was to:

  • Contribute to the achievement of consistent best practice approaches in ECEI through the facilitation of knowledge transfer and shared understanding;
  • Assist the NDIA in participant readiness for children 0-6 years by leveraging off ECIA networks and membership; and
  • Provide the NDIA, through a partnering arrangement, opportunities to manage change and resolve emerging issues.
