A step-by-step process for NSW children 0-6 years
All children aged 0-6 years who require support under the NDIS need to contact their allocated Early Childhood Partner. For families based in Western Sydney, the Early Childhood Partner is Northcott and they can be contacted on 1800 818 286.
The Early Childhood Partner will provide families with helpful information, connect them with the most appropriate supports in the local area, and commence the NDIS application and planning process with families.
Here is a step by step guide of what you can expect during your ECEI journey:
Your Early Childhood Partner will support you and your family by providing helpful information, they will work out the supports you need and connect you with the appropriate providers, and if required, commence the NDIS application and planning process with families.
Your Early Childhood Partner will develop and submit the NDIS plan on your behalf and notify you once your plan has been approved. Families can choose their preferred registered NDIS provider to start receiving therapy supports.
Your Early Childhood Partner will contact you before your plan expires for a plan review.
