The NDIS Early Childhood Approach - NDIS Partner - Ovens Murray 

What is it? 

The early childhood approach provides parents with information and supports should you have concerns regarding your child's development. 

To do this we: 

  • will meet with you and your child to learn about their development and discuss what supports may be available 
  • will provide you with information to support your understanding of your child's development if this is appropriate
  • may support you to access other services and activities in the community if these are appropriate, such as health services, playgroups, education settings etc. 
  • will provide you with information about the NDIS and support you to apply for access should your child be eligible and this is what you would like to do 
  • may offer your family Early Supports (short term intervention) if your child is younger than 6 and has developmental concerns 

Who can use this service? 

Children younger than 6 with a developmental delay and their families and children younger than 9 with a disability and their families, who live in the Ovens Murray region of North East Victoria.
