Early Childhood Intervention Supports
Early Childhood Early Intervention is a nationally consistent, best practice support approach for children aged 0-6 years old who have a developmental delay or disability, which provides personalised support for each child based on their needs.
St Jude’s support all children and their families to achieve better long-term outcomes, regardless of diagnosis. We carefully assess each child and then devise a customised programme according to their needs.
Our therapy assessment programme includes:
- Prescription and training in the use of equipment such as wheelchairs, shower commodes, hoists, transfer aids and more, to enable individuals to remain as safe and independent as possible.
- Assessment about modifying living environments.
- Functional assessment to identify and seek NDIS funding support to live independently such as independent living abilities assessment, support needs assessment, sensory processing assessment and functional behavioural assessment.
- Assessment of communication and swallowing.
Specialist technology is often used to assist people with disability.
Assistive technology includes any device or system that provides practical solutions for an individual to remain as independent as possible, performing activities of daily living.
We will work with you to explore the world-class assistive technology that meets your needs.
This technology can include switches to allow you to operate parts of your home, (such as lights, the TV and other appliances), visual alerting systems, speech output devices and much more.
