The ISP’s focus is on building the capacity and capability of child care services to include children with additional needs; including children being diagnosed or with a disability, those from diverse cultural and language backgrounds, refugee children, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, children with a serious medical condition, speech/language delay or presenting with disruptive behaviour. Our Inclusion Professionals can assist all eligible services to access tailored inclusion advice and support, including access to Specialist Equipment. We also assist parents and carers of children with additional needs to access appropriate early childhood and childcare services.
