Supportive Learning

Child Development Services

Child Development Services focus on early intervention for pre-school children who aren't achieving developmental milestones or who have disabilities. If your preschooler has a disability, or isn't achieving developmental milestones, Child Development Services can help you.

They’re a community-based service who will work with you and your child to determine how best to encourage your child’s development.

They will:
  • provide specialist assessment for your child
  • organise intervention and management services
  • work with other agencies to ensure your child gets integrated support.
The service focuses on early intervention to achieve the best results for your child.

How do I access the services?

Your GP, Well Child nurse or child health specialist will be able to provide you with further information about the Child Development Service in your region, and can organise a referral.

Child Development Services fact sheet PDF is attached at the bottom of this page.

This factsheet tells you:
  • How your child gets referred to a Child Development Service
  • How often they'll see someone from the Child Development Service
  • Where you can get more information.
