Have DOCS early intervention strategies improved outcomes for children?
The Special Commission of Inquiry into DOCS Child Protection Services was completed in November 2008. This audit topic was removed from the program due to the wide ranging recommendations arising from the Inquiry. The Government response to the Inquiry has resulted in extensive changes to child protection services in NSW. We are considering further audit topics in child protection that fall outside the areas addressed in the Inquiry.
- I think my child may not be developing at the same rate as other children their age. How can they get Early Intervention services?
- How do we track children who have been referred to Early On or other community-based intervention services?
- What does the research say about the outcomes for a child who receives early intervention ABA services?
