This report documents the findings of a review conducted by the South Australian Community Health Research Unit (SACHRU) at the request of the Southern Adelaide Health Service (SAHS) into the provision of Early Childhood Development services in southern Adelaide . This review was undertaken between June and December 2006 and overseen by a Project Management group consisting of representatives from the SAHS, the primary health services managers, practitioners, an acute service manager and the researchers.

The review examined the early childhood services provided by primary health services across the region, the models used, intake procedures and referral pathways. The findings were to be used for future service planning, implementation and resourcing.
