Inquiry Details

Improving access to early childhood health and development checks

The Committee is deferring further activity for this inquiry until its inquiry into the Equality Legislation Amendment (LGBTIQA+) Bill 2023 is completed.

The Committee's inquiry is considering barriers that affect parents' access to early childhood health and development checks that track their child's progress against developmental milestones, and changes to address gaps in outcomes for vulnerable children. The Committee is also looking at recruitment and retention of health professionals to address workforce shortages, and funding for early intervention programs and screening to ensure children are given support for developmental issues.
