Early childhood intervention is all about giving children with developmental delay or disability, and their families, supports to enable the child to have the best possible start in life.

  • family and child’s wellbeing
  • child taking part in their community.

This includes their own home, and other places, such as childcare, playgroup, or preschool, where they play with family or friends. This means the adults they are with need information, tools, and support to help the child’s development and participation.
