The early childhood years are as important for children with disabilities and developmental delays as they are for all children.
All of us learn throughout life and it starts from the day we are born. National and international research recognises that the early years of life are the most important for learning and development. This is when the foundations for the future are laid, when experiences and opportunities support a child’s learning and engagement in family and community life through childhood, teenage years and ultimately adulthood.
NDIS4Kids has been created in partnership with Association for Children with a Disability, Amaze (Autism Victoria) and Deaf Children Australia to provide the information you need to map your journey of accessing services that support the learning and development of your child.
ACD, Amaze and DCA would like to acknowledge the generous contribution from the Victorian Department of Education and Training which allowed for the development of this website and resources.
Association for Children with a Disability (ACD) is the leading advocacy and information service for families of children with any type of disability living in Victoria.
Deaf Children Australia (DCA) enable children and young people who are deaf or hard of hearing to face life’s challenges and reach their potential
Autism Victoria (Amaze) aims to improve the quality of life for people affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder, their family and carers, and to provide a range of services to individuals with ASD and the agencies that work with them.
