The NDIS approach to ECEI aims to provide all children aged 0-6 years with developmental delay or disability the best start in life, regardless of diagnosis.

Helping Children With Autism

Under the early intervention component of the Helping Children with Autism (HCWA) package, all children aged six and under who are diagnosed with an ASD and are not yet at school, are eligible for a funding package of up to  $12,000 (up to $6,000 per financial year) to assist with the financial cost of accessing early intervention services. An eligible child is one who has been diagnosed with an ASD and who is aged zero to 6 years. The HCWA funding will be fazed out as the NDIS phases in. Your child’s funding will not be cut off with the transition and you will be contacted by Intereach for an assessment of whether your child will transition to the NDIS.
For more information go to the Raising Children website.
