The Early Years Metro team provides an evidence-based program to families of children who have Global Developmental Delay with or without another diagnosis (for example Down Syndrome) and be aged from birth until the time they are 8 years old.
The program aims to build the resources and confidence of families, teachers and other caregivers to optimise the child’s learning and development. This aims to increase the child’s participation and independence wherever they are, including at home, child care, parks, shops and schools. The team will work with caregivers to develop strategies, routines and supports to maximise learning opportunities in daily routines.
The team works with families and relevant people in the child’s life, as a ‘team around the child’, with one team member being the ‘Key Contact’ who works with the family to identify, plan and work towards achieving goals.
The Key Contact is the main person working with the family, but there is also close communication with other team members. This means each child and family has timely access to a range of therapy supports.
To find out more
Families can contact the Early Years Metro Team directly. Anyone else working with the child or family may also make a referral with consent of the family.
