For children aged under 7 to gain access to the NDIS you need to get in touch with EACH who are the NDIS Partner in the Community who will link your family with an ECEI Coordinator. EACH Coordinators are child development specialists with qualifications and experience in early education, family support or allied health. Your ECEI Coordinator will work with you to understand what is going well, and where your child may need further support. From there EACH and you will decide together, what supports are going to be most appropriate for your child and if your child will meet access requirements for the NDIS.
