Continuing Professional Development

From the 1st July 2019 the DEAI will introduce a mandatory Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program for all full DEAI members. Further information will be provided to members prior to the commencement of the new Program. The DEAI highly recommends that, in the meantime, full members continue to undertake CPD in order to achieve and maintain both competence and conduct of the highest professional standard, which reflects current thinking and approaches in the field of disability.

Mandatory CPD will bring Developmental Educators in line with other allied health professions and will further strengthen the integrity the profession.


Professional Mentoring / Clinical Supervision for DE's

The Professional Mentoring Program provided by the DEAI has been discontinued due to difficulty of finding Mentors to support a Mentee interested in mentoring, and to now focus developing supervision capacity within the DE profession. Mentees receiving mentoring currently can continue until mutual agreement is reached to stop the mentoring relationship.

The DEAI sincerely thanks all previous Mentors and Mentees who have participated in this program.

The DEAI is now focussing its efforts on developing the clinical supervision skills of Developmental Educators in order to establish a register of Clinical Supervisors who are keen to practice privately to support the supervision needs of Developmental Educators as required by the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission.
