Inclusion for children with disabilities is well-established in Australia and receives commonwealth and state government funding. The international literature describes potential service models for which there is mounting empirical evidence. Typically these models are developed in university affiliated programs, which have access to funding and personnel not generally available in the Australian context. This paper provides a brief report of a project in which the aim was to identify the challenges for early childhood services in NSW, including children with disabilities.
