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.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is new to disability service provision in Australia and provides funding directly to individuals who are able to choose their own services and purchase directly to providers.
As a national scheme the NDIS requires guidelines that may be consistently applied in all States and Territories. The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) have asked Early Childhood Intervention Australia to develop recommendations for these guidelines through national consultation with key stakeholders and based on best practice evidence in early childhood intervention service delivery.
National workshops will be conducted from May until the end of July. See the ECIA National web site for a full list of confirmed dates and venues.more info view events
