Your child, your family, and early childhood intervention

A parent playing with a child who is practising fine motor skills with a toyThis video provides insights into successful therapy when a family-centred practice is used in early intervention.

In this video, we hear about best practice therapy. Two families share what this looks like for them. Some of the ideas discussed are:

  • Therapy is not the goal but one tool that families can use to achieve the goal.
  • A family-centred approach to therapy involves finding practical and natural ways to incorporate therapy into everyday life.
  • Parents and carers are the experts on their child.

Reimagine Australia, formerly known as Early Childhood Intervention Australia (ECIA), produced this video in partnership with the Parenting Research Centre.
