WHAT iS BEST PRACTiCE?
‘Best practice’ simply refers to a set of core principles that guide the way early childhood practitioners work with families of children with developmental delay and/or disability. Current research indicates that best practice in early childhood intervention centres on a family centred and inclusive approach.
In 2015, Reimagine Australia (or, as we were then known, Early Childhood Intervention Australia) were commissioned by the Commonwealth Government to develop the Best Practice Guidelines for Early Childhood Intervention.
The Guidelines, which form the basis of the NDIS Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) approach, are designed to support practitioners to provide high-quality, appropriate and effective support that meets the needs of the child and their family.
