NDIA ECP Reporting Updates
The NDIA announced on the 7th of September, 2020 of updates to the reporting mechanisms and tools related to Early Childhood Providers servicing participants below seven years of age. This reporting update allows the NDIA to better track the participation of the participants as well as analyze metrics related to NDIS providers and the framework in general.
The NDIA service framework is focused on early childhood development proactively and hence needs information about the participant’s situation to appropriately tailor a service plan. For that purpose, the report (link at the bottom) will allow service and care professionals to pen down all concerns and elaborate on a participant’s situation.
Using this reporting feature is highly recommended although completely optional. Using this form will allow:
- Families and caregivers to keep an eye on participation activity and related measures in one report with focus on the services provided and their effectiveness.
- Families, caregivers and professionals to elaborate further on a situation instead of simply selecting a few pre-decided options.
The NDIA encourages the review and use of these forms by families and caregivers. Families and caregivers are also encouraged, if participants are being serviced by multiple providers, to collaborate with providers so a single and objective report is submitted per participant. The forms can be found on the following pages:
