Victorian Chapter

ECIA (VC) is the peak body for early childhood intervention in Victoria. Our vision is for young children of all abilities to fully participate in family and community life. ECIA's work assists children with developmental delays or disabilities, their families, and the networks that support them. We provide information and professional development across the sector. Independent research shows that early action provides the best outcomes for children with disabilities, resulting in healthier futures, happier families and advanced opportunities .... right from the start.

  • Making a Start: Building Support for your Child & Family

    3rd Mar 14

    ECIA VC in conjunction with Carers Victoria, has developed a new resource, 'Making a Start: Building Support for your child and family'.

    The booklet provides information for families who have very young children who have a developmental delay or disability.  It aims to help families understand what support is available and how to make informed choices for their child and family. The booklet has been designed with a workbook component creating space for reflection around child and families’ needs.  We hope this will support families to ensure the early intervention support they receive is linked to their own goals for their child.  Particular emphasis has been made on demonstrating ‘natural learning environments’ through photographs depicting typical every day activities.  We hope families from all backgrounds will engage with these warm, positive images.
