NSW/ACT Conference


Early Childhood Intervention Australia NSW/ACT 2017 Conference has as its theme ‘ECI: Beyond Possibilities: Investing in the Future’. This provides an exciting opportunity for service providers and professionals interested in Early Childhood Intervention and Early Childhood to come together with a focus on building the capacity of our sector and the community, understanding the NDIS and the impact on children with disability and developmental delay and their families.

The conference will have a strong focus on the key issues affecting practice in early childhood intervention, now and into the future.

ECIA NSW/ACT is inviting professionals to submit abstracts for presentations, workshops or panels that explore innovative practices, challenges, research and policy directions.

The outcomes from this conference will be an improved understanding of:

• The impact of the NDIS on service providers and families
• The role of Allied Health in ECI
• National Best Practice Guidelines
• Methods of collaborative practice
• How to achieve organisational stability in a time of change
• New and emerging research in the sector
• Working inclusively and with diversity
