What Does the NDIS Mean for Best Practice in Early Childhood Intervention?
Wednesday, 19th July 2017 at 5:11 pm

Not-for-profit community organisation Noah’s Ark is holding a series of best practice workshops on the NDIS in August and September in major cities around Australia for professionals working with children with disabilities.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) affects and benefits all Australians, none more than professionals working in disability care.

Early intervention benefits children with disabilities, it sets up how they learn and develop later in life, and so it changes their experience of life.

Professionals working in Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) have such an important role to play in the NDIS, but with the structures of the NDIS, how can they ensure they are giving their clients the best possible services?

Lou Ambrosy and Stephen Carberry have been working in ECI and the NDIS for the past four years.

In an upcoming, one-day workshop, they will explore the four quality areas of the ECIA National Guidelines for Best Practice in Early Childhood Intervention and ask how can ECI stay true to best practices within the framework of the NDIS and what have we learnt about working in this new context?

Participants will examine:

  • Family Centered Practice and Customer Service: Are we talking the same language?
  • Engagement and Inclusion in Natural Environments: How can we support learning and participation through Everyday Learning and Therapy™?
  • Team Practices: How can we implement effective and efficient collaborative teamwork in the NDIS context?
  • Standards and Accountability: How can we keep a focus on evidence-based and outcomes focused practices?

ECI professionals, therapy students, special education teachers, family support workers, intake and assessment teams, ECIS managers, NDIA planners and ECEI partners are invited to intend.

The workshops will be held in the following cities on the following dates:

  • Brisbane 29 August
  • Sydney 30 August
  • Melbourne 12 September
  • Hobart 13 September
  • Adelaide 26 September
  • Perth 28 September
