Applying for the NDIS for a child under 7

Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) is the way the NDIS supports children aged 0-6 years who have a developmental delay or disability and their families/carers.

You can read more about ECEI or find information about providing evidence of disability for a child under 7.

Every child is unique and therefore each ECEI journey will be different. Here are some stories to show how this approach supports children and their families.
