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.
