Behaviour Support Specialists have expertise in supporting children when their behaviour affects their learning or participation in the community.
EarlyEd offers support in three ways.
1.Early Childhood Intervention flexible individualised support that includes:
- Support where your child spends their time – home, school or early childhood settings.
- Training to support parents, carers and teachers.
The support is offered as an individualised combination of:
- plan development
- collaborative sessions with other people involved with your child
- between visit follow-up phone calls and Zoom sessions
This approach ensure outcomes are achieved as soon as possible, and you have support all the way and your child is supported across all environments.
2. Specialist Behaviour Support
EarlyEd is a NDIS registered provider for Specialist Behaviour Support. This is a highly specialised and intensive form of behaviour support, that falls under the Improved Relationships category of NDIS funding. There are three parts to this intervention;
- Development of a behaviour support plan
- Training, coaching and adjustment of plans
Our expertise in evidence based best practice in early intervention underpins our unique services as behaviour practitioners in this field. We work collaboratively with your child’s team and partner with you to support your family.
If you have this funding, you can make an enquiry about services.
If you are concerned that your child needs targeted supports for behaviour you can then talk to members of the Specialist Behaviour Support Team about how to apply for this.
3. Stepping Stones Triple P
We also periodically offer the evidence based Stepping Stones Triple P seminars program which is a specialised approach for children with a developmental delay or disability, based on the world renowned Triple P parenting program.
Qualified Stepping Stones Triple P trainers from our early childhood intervention team run these online programs.
They are a great preventative program but also work well to help you problem solve particular challenges.

Our qualified Stepping Stones Triple P presenters regularly run the three Stepping Stones Triple P Seminars for parents and carers. Check our calendar for current dates.
