Early Intervention Services - SA

South Australia is a trial site for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and Better Start funding is no longer available for children here. Children who have had access to Better Start funding will become NDIS clients as Better Start transitions to the NDIS. If your child is not eligible for NDIS funding, you are still able to access early intervention services at minimal or no cost to your family. Contact the services listed below and discuss what services they are able to provide your child.

The information provided in the table below lists the SA government services and non-government organisations who provide early intervention services for children with hearing loss and their families.
