Advice and Support
Are you concerned about your child's development?
Talk to EarlyEd for advice and support.
EarlyEd is able to offer you advice and support when you are concerned about your child’s development. You can call EarlyEd for information or attend one of our many playgroups where you can to talk to our experienced early childhood intervention team.
Sometimes it is hard to work out if you should be concerned. Sometimes others tell you to wait. The evidence shows that if a parent is concerned and gets help early their child does better than if they wait. If you are concerned about your child’s development, it is important to check things out early.
Babies and toddlers with developmental delays will need extra help to meet their developmental milestones. At this time, they are learning so much that if they are experiencing difficulties and are not given the help they need their delays may increase. If they receive support they can learn new things and reduce the possibility of further delays or difficulties in learning.
Perhaps your child is not talking, walking or playing as well as you think they should. It is better to ask for advice rather than worry.
Are you concerned about your child’s development? Our CEO Kerry Dominish discusses the importance of seeking support early in our blog: Early Intervention for Babies – Why You Shouldn’t Wait.
