What is the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM)?

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.

***PLEASE NOTE: The ESDM Training Program posts both MIND Institute ESDM Workshops and External Workshops delivered by Certified Trainers throughout the world.  External Workshops are listed here as a courtesy.  Please contact listed coordinators directly for detailed information on external workshops.
