Group Programs

Early Childhood Intervention Group Programs

Early childhood intervention (ECI) group programs support children up to school entry age to develop the skills necessary for successful participation in home and community life and for a successful transition into the next stage of their education. 

Children attend these programs two or three days a week during school terms for at least 12 months. Essential components of these programs include:

  • Recognising the specific needs of young children with autism
  • Recognising that parents are crucial members of the team who will help your child achieve success
  • Using the child’s individual strengths and interests to motivate learning and develop skills
  • Teaching skills that are meaningful and useful for each child
  • A positive approach to behaviour support which focuses on understanding the reasons for undesirable behaviour.
