At EACH, our vision is for a healthy and inclusive community.
Founded on the vision that everyone is entitled to good health, we're one of the nation's leading health and community services providers, offering a broad range of services for over 40 years.
If you hold a tertiary qualification in an allied health field, are registered with APHRA, have a Speech, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Psychology, or disability background, and want to make a difference in the lives of children experiencing developmental delays and disabilities, you might be exactly the person we're looking for!
As part of our transdisciplinary team in Ipswich QLD, EACH is looking for an Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) Coordinator to work with families with children 0 - 6 years old with a developmental delay and make recommendations about the most appropriate supports to help their child achieve their goals.
Our team works closely with children and their families to understand and support their developmental journey. Experience in assessing and working with developmental delays and disabilities is necessary, along with an appreciation for succinct report writing.
Like many roles in this sector, a typical day is hard to find but it is important to note that the ability to assess children and quickly and concisely convey that in report form is essential. In this extremely fast-paced environment, you will be regularly meeting with children and their families, conducting assessments, and together with the family, evaluating the best path forward.
This role will include meeting with the people best placed to influence a child's physical and emotional wellbeing, preparing reports, documenting their progress, and keeping accurate records in accordance with NDIS requirements. This might be to request access to the NDIS or to find mainstream services that might better support the family, or, with the support of the EACH ECEI team, to provide capacity building activities as short term interventions. Ultimately, you will be giving children and families skills to put therapies in place for day to day living.
We're a vibrant and innovative not for profit organisation committed to an integrated approach to service and help make a positive difference in the lives of over forty thousand people each year. Our team is dedicated to giving clients the best possible support and you have the opportunity to work with other professionals within a variety of disciplines, including Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, and Psychologists.
You will be working within a large team of dedicated professionals from a variety of industries. Working in a key worker model, you will be able to gain a breadth of experience and knowledge and pass that information on to parents and carers.
EACH offers all staff benefits by offering Not for Profit Salary Packaging, a flexible workplace strategy, and support through a comprehensive Employee Assistance Program.
We want to know why you would like to come work with EACH and what you can bring to this role. Please attach a cover letter with your resume.
