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.
ECIA (VC) has launched our State Election Platform for 2014 'Painting a Picture for a Brighter Future: ensuring all children are included in Victoria's plan for the future'.
