Wanslea Family Services will be the first NDIS partner to deliver Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) services in Western Australia. Founded more than 70 years ago, the organisation will support the implementation of the NDIS for children aged 0-6 years with developmental delay or disability to achieve better long-term outcomes.

Wanslea will establish ECEI services in Central South Metro, South Metro, South West, Great Southern, South East Metro and Inner Wheatbelt from February 2019. Consideration is still being given to the delivery of ECEI services in the North Metro, Central North Metro and North East Metro service areas, and further announcements regarding these areas are expected in due course.

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) provides planning services in the remaining WA regions of Kimberley, Pilbara, Midwest-Gascoyne, Goldfields, Esperance and Outer Wheatbelt, and is currently reviewing the roll out of ECEI services to these regions.
