Kalparrin is an organisation that adheres to providing services, therapies and programs based on Evidence Based Practices. Only organisations with evidence based practice and strong quality and safeguards controls like Kalparrin are approved to provide services under the National Disability Insurance Scheme. This ensures the highest standard of service is available to families and that these services are founded in research based and substantiated practices which are proven to have results.

Evidence based practices (EBP) were founded in medicine and nursing and are based on the premise of integrating external scientific evidence with clinical expertise and the experience of clients, patients and caregivers.

Because EBP is client/patient/family centered, it is a practitioner’s task to interpret best current evidence from systematic research in relation to individual client/patient needs, including the individual’s preferences, environment, culture, and values regarding health and well-being.

Ultimately, the goal of EBP is providing optimal clinical and support services to a client/patient on an individual basis.

Because EBP is a continuing process, it is a dynamic integration of ever-evolving clinical expertise and external evidence in day-to-day practice.

Contemporary early childhood intervention practices represent a significant leap forward over practices of even just 20 years ago.

Kalparrin is committed to remaining at the forefront of services which are clearly substantiated by sound research in addition to the significant combined experience of its professionals and the experience and outcomes of the children and families it serves.

Evidence based research on early childhood intervention is both significant and evolving and these links are provided for the benefit of parents, carers, family members and other interested persons to assist learning and awareness of developments and philosophies in this crucial area of human development and growth.
