Early Intervention Support Services
Early Childhood Intervention Services to Help Your Child Thrive
Children’s brains and bodies are highly adaptable and responsive to their environments. Early childhood intervention
services make use of this adaptability to help optimise a child’s development.
At Active Ability, we offer personalised early intervention support services to help children with
disability or developmental delay reach their NDIS goals.
We use the early childhood approach to support children to reach their potential, thrive, and participate
in everyday life in their homes, schools and communities.
Because caregivers have a vital role in children’s early years, our early intervention services take a family-centred approach.
We consider the needs of each child and family, and can train formal and informal support people to help with early intervention therapy.
As a mobile early intervention service provider, we can visit your home, childcare centre, or school. This allows children to receive early intervention services in a comfortable and relevant environment, while making things easier for busy families.
We don’t have a waiting list or travel charges, so you can get started with our early intervention services as soon as you’re ready.

Why early childhood intervention services are important for kids with disability
Evidence shows that early intervention programs tend to be most effective when they start as soon as possible. This is because growing bodies and nerve pathways are highly adaptable. Supporting young children and families early on can therefore have a big impact on a child’s life.
Early intervention support services can help a child with:
- reaching developmental milestones
- healthy physical growth and development
- developing fine and gross motor skills
- co-ordination, balance and posture
- everyday activities like dressing and eating
- picky eating and feeding disorders
- food intolerances and nutritional issues
- achieving a healthy weight
- social skills and making friends
- learning and school performance
- developing confidence and self-esteem
- participating in their families and communities
- keeping up with peers.

Meet Active Ability’s early childhood intervention team
Our caring, university-qualified allied health professionals focus on supporting children with disability by providing quality early intervention services.
Early intervention therapy with Active Ability
As the first step in our early childhood intervention programs, one of our allied health professionals will visit you to talk about your child’s needs and review their function. We take the time to listen, which helps us design evidence-based support programs to meet your child’s goals.
Each early intervention support plan looks a bit different, because they are tailored for each child and their parents and carers.
If you’re new to early childhood intervention, we know arranging supports can be a daunting task. Our team are happy to help however we can. We can assist you to understand early childhood intervention services, work out your eligibility, and create goals and a support plan the NDIS may cover.
How does early intervention support funding work?
Early intervention therapy needed due to a person’s disability is funded by the NDIS. This includes funding for allied health therapies such as physiotherapy, dietetics and more.
