Since 2012, Early Start Australia (formerly Best Start Clinic) has been leading the way for paediatric allied health and also for young children with Autism in Melbourne. We were the first to bring the ground-breaking Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) program in a one-to-one direct therapy program to Australian families and proudly offer the rigorous ESDM training that is required for professionals. Our highly skilled team is the largest group of certified and certifying ESDM clinicians in the country.
When facing unknown challenges with your child our caring, multidisciplinary team is here to help. We know that parent well-being plays an important part in improving child outcomes and we want to work in partnership with you to help achieve your child’s goals.
Our Early Start Australia | Vic | Geelong clinic offers a warm, welcoming and inclusive environment for your whole family to feel safe and belong. We believe in the enormous potential that lies within every child and that every child deserves the best start in life.
As such, we believe in bringing together the right interventions at the right time, together with a team that is right for you. Our services are for anyone seeking the best start for their child or young adult (0-18 years).
If your child has a known delay or need, or maybe you are wanting to simply explore some concerns, we can help. Whether it’s individual therapy, a community program (support in kinder and school), parent coaching or via telehealth, we help find the mode of delivery that works for you and your child.
