Early Intervention (ECEI)

Phone: 1300 969 645 or emailndis@wanslea.org.au

Wanslea is the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) partner that delivers Early Childhood Early Intervention supports for children
aged 0-6.

Early intervention is important to ensure children with developmental delay or disability have the best start in life.

If you have concerns about your child’s development, then ECEI can help you to get information and access to supports. You and other caregivers will be provided with ways to help your child develop the skills they need to take part in daily activities and achieve the best possible outcomes throughout their life.

Our ECEI service supports children 0-6 years with developmental delay or disability and their families/ carers in the South West, Great Southern, South Metropolitan, South East Metropolitan, Central South Metropolitan, North East Metropolitan, Central North Metropolitan, North Metropolitan and Inner Wheatbelt areas.

How does it work?
We recognise that each child is different, so we tailor your child’s supports to meet their individual needs and circumstances. Your child is best placed to receive their supports through activities in the community such as playgroup or early learning centres.

Wanslea's Early Childhood team
Our team is qualified, skilled and passionate about supporting children with developmental delay or disability. Our team includes occupational therapists,
speech pathologists, early childhood teachers, psychologists and physiotherapists. They will use their experience and knowledge to:

• Connect you and your child with the most appropriate supports in your area
• Provide some short-term early intervention where it is identified as the most appropriate support
• Help you to request National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) access if your child requires longer-term early childhood intervention supports
