Those Who May Benefit from Early Childhood Intervention Services

It can typically be defined as working with children who are under the age of 7 years old, however the support can last beyond this if required.

- Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Attention Deficit Disorder
- Learning Disability
- Sensory Regulation Difficulties
- Developmental Coordination Disorder
- Global Developmental Delay
- Delayed Fine or Gross Motor Development
- Handwriting Development

The Keyworker Model for Early Intervention Therapy
At Connect2Care, we understand that receiving treatment from multiple Therapists can be overwhelming, especially for young children and families, who are engaging with allied health professionals for the first time.
The Keyworker Model for Early Intervention works by having one key point of contact who can coordinate services for your child, engaging the appropriate professionals at the correct time. Using this model, we can assign a competent and niche-specific therapist, such as a Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist or Speech Pathologist, to work with your child depending on their needs.
