Welcome to ECI-PDP
The Early Childhood Intervention - Professional Development Project is part of the Stronger Together initiative of ADHC.
This site provides support materials and links for people participating in the research and professional development project "Preventing and reducing challenging behaviour in young children"
The central aim of this project is to provide a practical step-by-step process for staff working in early childhood intervention services and education that will maximise the social and communicative involvement of the children they support.
There are two series of workshops available. The core course has the following goals:
enhance the use of research-based practices in addressing challenging behaviour
build capacity in services, especially in relation to working collaboratively with families, and
provide a sequenced approach to use of the materials
