Ageing, Disability & Home Care

Children, young people and their families

We provide a range of services to help children with developmental delay or disability get the best possible start in life and to keep them safe.

Early intervention for children

Early childhood intervention aims to give infants and young children the best start they can have by providing support as early as possible.

Early childhood intervention can help you to find out about your child’s needs and what your child can achieve, and support you to help your child learn new skills.

Keeping them safe

9-18 framework

The Supports for children and young people aged 9 to 18 years and their families: Framework for service providers has been developed in recognition of the importance of supporting children and young people with disability and their families during this life stage.

The framework looks at strategies to build the capacity of mainstream and community services to be accessible, supporting and enabling participation and inclusion.

It also includes ways for service providers to support and build the capacity of children and young people with disability and their families to exercise choice and control, and to be at the centre of decision-making regarding self-directing supports along their journeys to adulthood
