What is ESDM Therapy?
The Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) is a comprehensive family-centred behaviour therapy for the effects of early autism for children aged 12-60 months old.
ESDM is a contemporary therapy integrating a multi-disciplinary approach derived from clinical practitioners from the US Davis Mind Institute. ESDM has been proven to be most effective in teams of practitioners delivering ESDM one on one in home and clinical environments and then progressively generalised into mainstream early environments, such as child cares and kindergartens.
Parent training and involvement in the early Start Denver model approach is a key for comprehensive and family centred program. See Our Philosophy page too.
