I love my role as an Early Childhood Practitioner at Kudos. I know what is expected of me and I have the support and resources I need to do my job. I also enjoy being part of a supportive and experienced multi-disciplinary team who are willing to help each other out and share their knowledge and experience with each other.
Becky, Early Childhood Practitioner
I have only good things to say.. I love it. It is so nice to have joined such a passionate group of people and be immersed in a really positive environment.
Rosie, Senior Positive Behaviour Support Practitioner
I have been employed at Kudos for just over 3 years and feel that the staff are such a kind, caring and genuine bunch of people. Every staff member, no matter what their role, genuinely cares about each other and the clients we work with creating such a positive and enjoyable working environment.
Chanelle, Early Childhood Practitioner
I am proud to be working for an innovative, passionate and inspiring organisation. Today’s children are tomorrow’s future and it is a privilege to play a fundamental role in the lives of the young people and families we work with. Knowing that our role can have such a profound impact on a young person’s entire life is both fulfilling and rewarding.
Angie, Team Leader Therapy Services
For me, the best part about Kudos is the heart-centred approach Kudos brings to the children and family it supports within the early childhood space here in South Australia. Each and every member of the team brings something special and unique, and I am honoured to be a part of the Kudos family.
Anastasia, Early Childhood Practitioner
Unlike many organisations I’ve worked for, Kudos has been an exciting opportunity where I could be at the heart of it with a voice that could help shape the direction, focus and culture of the organisation.
Julianne, Early Childhood Practitioner

Kudos Early Childhood (EC)
Kudos EC are the NDIS partner in South Australia for early intervention support, assisting families to understand the potential role of the NDIS and to guide them to other appropriate supports. We also offer independent advice on providers of support most suited to their needs.
Our Early Childhood team comprises qualified Occupational Therapists, Speech Pathologists, Physiotherapists, Developmental Educators and Social Workers who believe in making a genuine and positive impact in the lives of children in the community. Their work involves a mixture of both face-to-face assessments of children and office-based administrative tasks.
These roles suit someone who wants to put their previous therapy experience to use in a different way.
Our Early Childhood team:
- assist children, families, carers and community with information to further understand what the NDIS is and how it applies to understanding their child’s developmental needs and services available to them
- assess and accurately report the functional impact of a child’s developmental delay to assist in the preparation of applications for access to the NDIS scheme with regards to early intervention
- assess and prioritise needs to clearly and concisely summarise relevant information to make recommendations to support NDIS plan approval
- conduct first plan and review planning conversations with clients – over the phone and in person
- liaise and work cooperatively with key stakeholders to successfully implement NDIS plans
- demonstrate a consistent drive to making a positive difference empowering the lives of children, their families, carers and the wider community at large.
Kudos Services provide hands-on therapy and behaviour support services focused on children (9+) and young people living with a disability.
Our Therapy Services team is made up of highly experienced practitioners in speech pathology, occupational therapy, psychology, positive behaviour support, physiotherapy, social work, developmental education and specialist support coordination.
