Early Childhood Intervention programs in the Hunter

DSA’s early intervention services are operated by the Hunter Specialist Intervention Services Team including registered psychologists and speech pathologists

The trans-disciplinary early intervention is a program of support with a range of early childhood professionals working collaboratively, and sharing responsibilities for evaluating, planning and implementing supports to improve capacity of children and their families.

DSA uses a key worker approach to the provision of early childhood intervention services. This means one professional is chosen as the primary service provider for the family, and acts as the conduit for the expertise of the team. The full team remains involved, and the primary provider reports back to the team constantly.

All our services are individually designed and tailored to the individual family needs. Where possible, they are delivered on an outreach basis in the family home, pre-school and in community and natural settings.

The trans-disciplinary approach can include any combination of:

  • Child Psychology and Speech Pathology Assessment
  • Positive Behaviour Support
  • Psychology and Speech Pathology Therapy (individual and group)
  • Applied Behaviour Analysis
  • Autism/Disability Education
  • Alternative and augmentative communication / social stories
  • Home based or outreach skills development programs (social, toileting, communication, PECS)
  • Transition to school/preschool programs
  • Behaviour, communication and sensory needs assessment
  • Case management and coordination
  • Triple P Parenting program

Is your child eligible for Early Childhood intervention services under the NDIS but unsure of the process and would like some more information? If you would like to access our Early Childhood Intervention services, then we can assist you by providing you with up to date information to help you prepare for your planning meeting with the NDIS.
