The Early Childhood Development Program (ECDP) comprises of four key elements; community education, early screening, early support and transition support.

Community Education
Children develop at different rates. By educating the community to increase their understanding and awareness of early indicators of autism and other developmental delays, families, health professionals as well as early childhood services are able to recognise these signs and provide the appropriate support.

Early screening
Early screening uses tools to determine if your child is at risk of having autism or developmental delay, and therefore, requiring further assessment.

Early support
Our early support service will work collaboratively with your family and key support workers to provide short term intervention, guidance and assistance to your child, family and community service providers. Early support can be provided either within your family home or early childhood setting.

Transition support
Transition support aims to assist your child and family access and engage with the appropriate assessment services, early intervention services and early childhood education and care settings. ECDP staff will work collaboratively with your family to develop a strategy to guide your child’s transition.
