If your child meets the eligibility criteria to become a NDIS participant then your early childhood partner will use information gathered about goals, assessments, and connections with community and mainstream supports to help create your child’s NDIS plan.

You can read more about how we make decisions about a child’s NDIS plan in our guidelines - creating your plan , your plan and reasonable and necessary supports .

To learn more about how we make decision about what the NDIS can fund go to the Would we fund it - early childhood page.

Your early childhood partner will help you develop a plan for your child and will check in with you to understand your child’s progress. The NDIA requires early childhood providers to write reports prior to your child’s plan review to document services provided, outcomes achieved and future recommendations. 

We encourage you discuss the use of the Early Childhood provider report form with your providers prior to your child’s plan review. To learn more about plan review go to our guidelines – plan reviews

Your early childhood partner will talk to you about transitions that will happen throughout your child’s early years. This may include talking about support to either:

  • continue getting supports through a NDIS plan with a local area coordinator or planner once your child turns 7
  • leaving the NDIS, if your child is likely to no longer be eligible for the Scheme.
