Early Childhood Approach

Early Childhood Early Intervention – (ECEI) Services

Early Childhood Approach at National 360 offers Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) services for children up to 9 years and paediatric services for older children (10 + years to 18 years). We can provide assistance from one service such as Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Speech Pathology and Behaviour Support. Or alternatively, we can support you with a multidisciplinary approach where we can provide a combination of these therapies. We are a registered NDIS provider and can provide services under this funding scheme.

We provide support to children across a number of areas, including communication, learning, memory, sensory, motor, social, emotional and academic development. Our Early Childhood Early Intervention Paediatric Therapists enable children from infancy to adolescence to improve learning and skills, whilst also offering parents guidance to improve their child’s quality of life and independent living.

National 360 Early Childhood Approach offers the following Early Childhood Early Intervention NDIS supports for children with disabilities.

Early Childhood Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy aims to enhance a child’s ability to engage in daily activities. These activities can include such as self-care, play, and school-related tasks. Our team of Occupational Therapists work closely with children to develop their fine motor skills, sensory processing abilities, and self-regulation strategies. Through therapeutic interventions and assistive technologies, our National 360 team empower children to become more independent and confident in their abilities with our early childhood early intervention ECEI and paediatric allied health services.

Early Childhood Speech Pathology

Our National 360 Speech Pathologists understand that communication is vital for a child’s social and academic development. Our Speech Pathologists specialise in supporting children with speech and language difficulties, and offer assessments, interventions, and therapy sessions to improve speech clarity, language comprehension, expressive language skills, and social communication. By enhancing their communication abilities, our team of qualified therapists help children express themselves, connect with others, and participate fully in a variety of settings.

Early Childhood Physiotherapy

Did you know that mobility and physical well-being are crucial for a child’s overall development? Our National 360 Physiotherapists focus on improving strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination. Through therapeutic exercises, mobility aids, and adaptive equipment, our team of Physios help children develop their motor skills, increase independence in their daily activities, and participate in physical activities with confidence.
