Are you passionate about the impact early intervention can have in children’s lives?
As the Partner in the Community for the NDIA’s Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) service across Logan/ Milton, The Benevolent Society is excited to be recruiting additional Child Development Specialists to the team.
Terms: Ongoing Full time position based in Logan/Milton QLD.
You will meet with families to gather information on their child’s development, and to support them in developing goals for their child. You will report to a Team Leader, and work within a trans-disciplinary team alongside other professionals, such as Speech Pathologists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Social Workers and Early Childhood Teachers, to determine the best supports for children with a developmental delay and/or disability and their families.
Report writing will make up about 50% of your work, so being a good written communicator, enjoying writing reports and being very comfortable using technology are essential for enjoying this role.
Having an aptitude for interpretation of legislation will also be very helpful to you in this role – but don’t worry, we have Senior Practitioners and Team Leaders who can support you to interpret and apply the legislation. A large portion of your week will be spent travelling to meetings with families – so enjoying variety, interacting with different people and getting out and about is also important.
As an evolving scheme, the NDIS environment can be quite dynamic, so an openness and resilience to change will set you up for success in this role.
These roles represent a unique opportunity to have a genuine impact on the lives of the children and families you will work with.
Call Christie-Jo Fraser on 0427 614 809 for more details about the role.
