What is the Early Intervention Key Worker Model?

Our specialist Early Intervention (EI) service assists young children, aged 0-7 years of age, who have a disability or developmental delay to reach their full potential.

We work with you to provide a range of therapy and supports which will best assist your child’s well-being and development.

Experts in Early Childhood Development

Our EI team have extensive knowledge and experience in early childhood development. We prefer to work with your child in their natural environments as this is where children learn best, during play and learning opportunities.  Windermere uses the Key Worker model to deliver your early intervention services.

  • Help you coordinate the broader team who are supporting your child e.g. educational facilities, paediatricians and specialists.
