ECIA Conferences

The International Society on Early Intervention (ISEI) is pleased to invite researchers and practitioners in ECI and related fields to participate in our conference to be held in Sydney, on 25-29 June, 2019. The ISEI conference will be held in conjunction with Early Childhood Intervention Australia, the major professional body in this field in Australia.
