Do you have a child or children under seven years of age? You may be eligible for the NDIS early intervention scheme.

Bridges Alliance is an early childhood partner, working closely with families and carers with children under seven years to help them develop skills required to take part in daily activities and achieve fulfilling lives as adults.

We offer clinically-backed early intervention programs supporting young children with various physical disabilities and neurological conditions.

As a registered NDIS service provider and NDIS ECEI partner, we are dedicated to maximising your child’s neuroplasticity. We prioritise children aged 0-6 years as the first six years of your child’s life are the most critical for their neurological development.

Depending on your NDIS plan, you will also have access to a range of support services to guide your child’s early learning development in the right direction, including:

  • Independent mobility
  • Play and social skills
  • Gross and fine motor skills and motor planning
  • Strength, flexibility and endurance
  • Thinking and problem-solving skills
  • Understanding of words and language
  • Feeding and dressing skills

About NDIS early childhood intervention

The NDIS early childhood approach encourages families of children under seven who have developmental concerns, developmental delays or disabilities to access individualised early childhood support as part of their NDIS plan. As an NDIS service provider, Bridges Alliance is your first point of contact.

Our goal is to support families who wish to learn more about their child’s support needs and identify the appropriate services to address these needs. Early intervention supports will ensure the following:

  • Access to information
  • Direct provision of early intervention strategies
  • Family-based education and parenting support
  • Links to support communities and mainstream services
  • Timely support to ensure that you can access the supports you need
  • Information about best-practice early childhood intervention supports and how you can help your child
  • Capacity to manage and respond to your child’s support needs
  • Increase your child’s ability to do activities they want to do throughout their day

How can the NDIS early childhood approach help your child?

Early Childhood Intervention is about giving children and their families the right support to enable them to have the best possible start in life.

This approach supports best practices in early childhood intervention. It helps a child and family to build their developmental capacity as well as encourage greater inclusion in the community in everyday settings. As a result, children with developmental delays can be provided with the opportunities to grow and learn.

Your child will be better able to achieve their full potential with early support.

At Bridges Alliance, our early childhood approach is family-centred, holistic and strengths-based. As parents and carers, we acknowledge that you know what is best for your child.

We can provide support that is specific to your child’s needs. We can help you and your child access the community support needed to maintain the wellbeing of your family. As your NDIS service provider, we work with you one-on-one along the way, empowering you to make decisions as your child’s carer.

If your child has longer-term support needs, Bridges Alliance can help you request NDIS access.

What NDIS early intervention requirements make you eligible for the NDIS?

If you or your child has a permanent impairment, but it’s functional impact fluctuates and is still in its early stages but expected to worsen in the future, you may be able to meet the NIDS early intervention scheme. If your child is younger than six with developmental delays, you may also meet early intervention requirements.

The purpose is to lessen the impact of you or your child’s impairment, providing support at the earliest possible stage.

It is also intended to benefit a person or a child to reduce their future needs for additional support.

Please Note: The NDIS supports early intervention at any stage of life. If you have children aged seven years and older, they will need to have a permanent and significant disability to obtain support from the NDIS.

Our NDIS support coordinators can help you with:

  • Understanding your NDIS plan, with a focus on flexibility, value for money and how to best meet your goals
  • Assist in setting up service agreements
  • Liaise with people in your circle of support (family, friends, therapists, doctors, specialists)
  • Build confidence and skills so you can better coordinate your supports
  • Help you monitor how your funds are being spent
  • Help you monitor your goals and outcomes
  • Assist in preparations for your next NDIS meeting
  • Connect you to other service providers should you so wish
