The Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) is an evidence-based intervention specifically developed for very young children with autism. ESDM is a play-based intervention that fuses behavioral and developmental principles into an integrated approach. ESDM can be implemented in different natural settings such as the home or the daycare/preschool by trained therapists as well as parents within play and daily routines. ESDM aims to reduce the symptoms of autism and target all developmental areas.
Graduates of the Introductory Workshop will learn how to carry out ongoing therapy using the ESDM. Teams of 3-5 professionals will be grouped together to receive direct practice with children with ASD and supervision with implementing an ESDM intervention program. Coaching and feedback will be provided on how to generate and embed a developmentally appropriate teaching curriculum into naturalistic routines for young children with ASD.
After registration, trainees can cancel participation and ask refund up to 1 month before the training. For example, for a training starting on March 15, it will be possible to cancel participation until February 15. Trainees will need to pay a refund fee of $50. It will not be possible to refund trainees if requests are made in the month prior the training. In this case, the trainee will be able to use funds toward the same training held at future dates.
