Reimagine Australia, formerly known as Early Childhood Intervention Australia (ECIA), has been the leading Australian body for early childhood outcomes for young children with a developmental delay or a disability and their families, since 1986.
As the singular national organisation that works with families, government, service providers, and mainstream support services to obtain the very best outcomes for children with developmental delay or disability and their families, Reimagine Australia has been leading the early childhood sector in embedding best practice and inclusive systems design for over 35 years.
Reimagine Australia’s purpose is to ensure that children with disability and/or developmental delay, and their families, have every opportunity to reach their potential in life. We do this by supporting families and practitioners, whilst reimagining communities in which we live, work and play through strategic and inclusive design.
Let’s reimagine today, to enable the tomorrow of our dreams.
Early intervention simply means doing things as early as possible in order to achieve the best result.
All children need help and guidance as they learn, grow and develop. When a child has a developmental delay or disability, they often need more assistance than other children to actively participate in family, school and community life, and reach their full potential
Reimagine Australia aims to assist families to make informed decisions to get the help they need enhance their child’s abilities. We do this by connecting families with up-to-date information and tools that support children to realise the best possible outcomes.
Reimagine Australia provides support, resources, training and development for early childhood practitioners to best enable them in their work with families of children who have additional needs.
Our practitioner support program is built on contemporary, evidence-based best practice. Best practice acknowledges that a family knows their child better than anyone else, and that parents and caregivers have the most powerful influence on their child’s development.
Reimagine Australia provides early childhood practitioners with up-to-date information and tools that support children to realise positive outcomes. We also work to strengthen public policy and programs by promoting the benefits of best practice early childhood support to government.
