About Us

The Child Development Institute has been operating since 2018 in Western Sydney and has now expanded to the Northern Beaches.

At the Child Development Institute we offer specialized Early Intervention programs based on the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM), an evidence-based intervention for children on the Autism Spectrum and with Developmental Delays.

We also offer discipline specific therapies such as Speech Pathology, Occupational Therapy and Feeding clinics to cater for children with specific challenges in these areas. 

Our programs are designed to give your child the skills they need to lead an independent life and to fully participate within their family and community

Our Services

The CDI is proud to offer services that are tailored to not only the child, but also the people around the child.

Early Intervention Services

The CDI offers a suite of early intervention programs and discipline specific therapies that can be tailored to your child’s needs and their developmental goals.

Mainstream Services

The CDI supports your child in their mainstream childcare or preschool setting by providing mentoring and coaching to their educators, aimed to promote their inclusion and participation

Parent Services

Early Childhood Intervention Australia advocates that Best Practice in Early Childhood Intervention involves engaging children in their natural environments such as at home.

NDIS Support

Every child attending the CDI has received an NDIS plan for intensive therapy. We can support you through this process.

Inclusion Coaching Program

The Child Development Institute has developed a tailored mentoring and coaching program to help childcare centres and preschools overcome barries to inclusion.

Fading Supports Over Time

Every child enrolled at the CDI is on their own unique journey. Our aim is to fade supports over time, as their skills develop and their support needs reduce.



I would like to express our thanks for your help with James’ treatment for the last nine months.  Straight from his very first appointment it was clear that CDI was the right fit for James. He quickly  warmed to all the staff and always loved his visits.

James’ progress since starting at CDI has been amazing. When he started, he rarely talked at pre-school and would not interact with other children. Now, he has gained confidence, and happily plays with his peers. His play and social skills have really improved and continue to do so. I know that a large part of this is due to his time at CDI.  We will be forever grateful for the incredible boost that CDI provided.
