Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI)

Sensory SMART is committed to the practice of early intervention. Evidence-based practice has provided significant results for those who have had access to the Early Intervention. NDIS sourced statistics have revealed that 60% of those who have addressed needs in an early intervention program, require little intervention in the long term, only 40% of those in early intervention programs continue to require ongoing intervention. Sensory SMART is a registered member of the ECEIA, for the treatment of children in the 0-6 year age range. “The overall aim of ECEI is to ensure that parents or primary caregivers are able to provide young children who have developmental delay or disabilities with experiences and opportunities that help children gain and use the functional skills they need to participate meaningfully in their environment.” ndis.gov.au/ecei
