The support has just been incredible. Being in a remote area it’s really hard to find that constant support. MacKillop has never wavered, we know they will always be there to support our family.

– Kylie McKenzie, parent of Xander, 8 - Early Childhood Intervention Service, Walgett

MacKillop supports children with an NDIS Plan (birth-14 years) with a disability and/or developmental delay, and their families who live in rural NSW. We can also refer families who would like to see if their child(ren) are eligible for an NDIS plan to the local NDIA ECEI Partner or LAC Partner.

Our early intervention staff work closely with families to help children develop the skills they need to take part in daily activities and achieve the best possible outcomes throughout their life.

We support families with the information and skills to assist their child to develop to their potential and be a part of family and community life.

Our services can be provided in a variety of settings including:

  • centre-based
  • at home
  • early childhood centres (eg: preschool, day care)
  • at school
  • within community settings.

Our support includes:

  • home visits
  • information on special needs/disabilities /therapy ideas and other family services
  • access to therapists for assessments and therapy programs
  • guidance with assessments and reports
  • regular therapy sessions to help the child’s development and learning
  • assistance with transition to preschool and school
  • ongoing support at preschool and school
  • support with community inclusion
