13m of CPD
As of 1 July 2023, children under six years of age with developmental delay and children under nine years of age living with disability can receive support through the NDIS early childhood approach. The early childhood approach is delivered via local providers funded by the NDIS known as early childhood partners. Early childhood partners have clinical expertise in supporting young children who are experiencing developmental delay or living with disability.

What is this article about?

Anyone under the age of 65 living with a developmental delay or a disability that significantly affects their daily life is eligible to request access to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). This includes children, some of whom may fall into the early childhood category. Providers who deliver early childhood support are expected to adhere to the Early Childhood Supports Module within the NDIS Practice Standards, which sets out specific requirements for working with young children.

There are so many different subjects on Ausmed! I thought it'd be hard to find the resources I need for complicated procedures or rarer conditions, but they've had everything I've looked for so far.
