Developmental Delays – Early Childhood
The NDIS has a great new webpage for helping you decide whether or not your child can access support for developmental delays.
The NDIS Act 2013 states that “Developmental delay is when a child’s development is not at the level expected for their age and has a significant effect on their ability to perform daily routines and activities. A child under 6 years of age with developmental delay may meet the NDIS early intervention requirements.”
The page guides you through things to look for in your child’s self-maintenance, communication skills, problem solving and physical coordination.
Children under 6 can access support service funding without the need of a medical diagnosis. They do this through “Early Childhood Early Intervention”.
