Our Early Childhood Intervention services

Our services can help improve a child's communication, relationships, play, and behaviours.

About early childhood intervention

At House with No Steps, we operate Early Childhood Intervention services for children aged 0 – 7 years in Forbes, Lismore, Ballina, Tamworth and their surrounding areas.

Our services can help improve a child’s development and well-being such as communication, social relationships, play, and functional behaviours.

We can also help to prepare your child for their next stage in life such as child care, kindergarten, or school.

Families often see their children improve dramatically though Early Childhood Intervention, and kids can sometimes even enter school alongside their peers with little or no extra support.

Our services

House with No Steps is a registered provider for Early Childhood Intervention under the NDIS. Get in touch with our team to talk about how we can provide you services as part of your NDIS plan.

Speech pathology

Our Speech Pathologists (sometimes called Speech Therapists) can provide support to children who have difficulty communicating or swallowing.

Despite what the name suggests, our Speech Pathologists don’t just help children communicate with speech – they can also help children communicate in other ways such as using assistive devices or key word boards.

Special education

Our Special Educators can help children learn in areas such as:

  • Language development
  • Literacy and numeracy
  • Cognitive development
  • Social skills
  • Attention to task

We can also can provide support to families to understand more about their child’s disability or delay and the impact this may have on their learning and development.


Our Physiotherapists have expertise in large muscle movement and function. They can work with families to help your child increase their strength, balance and mobility.

Occupational therapy

Our Occupational Therapists can help kids if they are having difficulty doing everyday activities. This could include:

  • Grasping and releasing toys and other items
  • Hand eye coordination such as batting a ball
  • Learning to use cutlery and how to feed themselves
  • Getting dressed
  • Maintaining positive behaviours such how to deal with anger or frustration
  • Learning to draw and write
  • Looking at someone’s equipment needs

Counselling and support

Our Social Workers specialise in providing counselling and support to families to help them understand their child’s needs. They can also support families to seek more information or help connect them with other supports.

Our approach

Every child has unique needs. So, we take a holistic or transdisciplinary approach to put together a package of services to suit each child (which may include working with health professionals from your wider network too). Find out more about our Transdisciplinary Approach.

You will have one main point of contact called as Key Worker. Your Key Worker will help coordinate your services by managing the different parties who make up your transdisciplinary (Early Childhood Intervention) team. Find out more about the Key Worker model.
