The NDIS provides funding for Therapy and Clinical Supports.
For children 0-7 they can access the NDIS specialist childhood intervention support, called Early Childhood, Early Intervention (ECEI). Aruma, as an NDIS Early Childhood Partner, are experienced in providing early childhood intervention and can deliver the ECEI approach.
