Reimagine Australia are the leaders in best practice in early childhood intervention.
‘Best practice’ simply refers to a set of core principles that guide the way early childhood practitioners work with families of children with developmental delay and/or disability. Current research indicates that best practice in early childhood intervention centres on a family centred and inclusive approach. You will find more information on the National Best Practice Guidelines for Early Childhood Intervention, and resources to support your understanding of the Guidelines, below.
In 2020, Reimagine Australia delivered the very first national blueprint for early childhood intervention on behalf of the Australian Government – the Reimagine Early Childhood National Action Plan to 2030. Built upon a foundation of best practice principles, the blueprint was co-designed with families and early childhood practitioners nationally, and is one of three strategic documents upon which Australia’s Disability Strategy to 2031 – Early Childhood Targeted Action Plan is built. You can access the Action Plan here.
In 2015, Reimagine Australia (or, as we were then known, Early Childhood Intervention Australia) were commissioned by the Commonwealth Government to develop the Best Practice Guidelines for Early Childhood Intervention.
These guidelines help early childhood intervention practitioners work in a way that supports the best outcomes for children with developmental delay and/or disability, and their families. The NDIS have used our national guidelines as the basis for their early childhood approach for children aged 0 to 6 years of age.
Research shows that providing children and families with timely, comprehensive and well-integrated early intervention support, under a family-centred, best practice framework, will lead to better long-term outcomes for children and families, fostering inclusion, a sense of belonging and greater participation in their communities.
