Early intervention for children with disability

Raising Children Network, Australia

This page offers information for parents about early intervention services that provide specialised support to children and families living with disability, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), developmental delay and other additional needs. This support might include special education, therapy, counselling, service planning and help getting universal services like child care and schooling.

‘Early intervention is the best way to support the development and wellbeing of children with disability, ASD, developmental delay or other additional needs. It can help children develop the skills they need to take part in everyday activities. Sometimes children who get early intervention need less or no support as they get older.’

The content covers:

  • Early intervention: what is it?
  • How does early intervention work?
  • Getting started on early intervention for your child with additional needs
  • Getting a diagnosis to guide early intervention for children with additional needs
