Early Childhood Intervention Services

Early Childhood Intervention Services (ECIS) supports the development and wellbeing of children with a disability from birth to school entry.

At Scope, we recognise that parents and carers have a better understanding of their children. We’re here to help support you to access the services you need for your child.

What are Early Childhood Intervention Services?

ECIS is funding that supports children with a disability or developmental delay and their families.

Services are tailored to meet the individual needs of the child and focused on supporting the child in their natural environments and in their everyday experiences and activities.

ECIS is funded by the Department of Education and Training.

Who is eligible to receive ECIS?

You may be able to receive funding from the time your child is born up until they transition to Primary school.

What supports can I access with ECIS?

Our team members include occupational therapists, speech pathologists, physiotherapists, psychologists, teachers and inclusion support specialists, who understand the needs and developmental challenges of children.

Parents may refer their child to ECIS.

In addition, paediatricians, general practitioners, maternal and child health nurses, child care professionals and kindergarten teachers may also make referrals.
