More about the Review 

This project is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services. It involves a review of best practice in early intervention for children with developmental concerns, delay or disability in Australia and around the world. Most importantly, the review will consult with families, young people with disability and professionals and practitioners to hear their views about what works best for children and families. 

The results of these processes be combined to produce a Best Practice Framework, along with resources and tools to help practitioners and families understand the framework and how to use it in their everyday practice and lives. 

The project brings together academic and clinical expertise, international experts and leaders and the lived experience of families and communities across the country, including First Nations communities. The team includes researchers from University of Melbourne, the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, Professionals and Researchers in Early Childhood Intervention (PRECI), SNAICC – National Voice for our Children and Children and Young People with Disability Australia (CYDA). 

The Best Practice Framework is a key part of the Early Childhood Targeted Action Plan (TAP) under Australia’s Disability Strategy 2021-2031 and specifically, Early Childhood TAP action 2.4. The aim of the Early Childhood TAP is to contribute to the development and wellbeing of children to help them thrive across and between life stages. 

The outcome of this work will also contribute to the four Priority Focus Areas in the recently announced Early Years Strategy as well as the recommendations from the NDIS Review. 

The framework and tools will be developed through deep consultation with parents, caregivers, professionals and researchers in the early childhood community across Australia. Consultations will begin next month and will run through until the end of the year.
