Early Start Denver Model is a comprehensive intervention for very young children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or who are at risk of being diagnosis with ASD. ESDM combines applied behaviour analysis (ABA) with a naturalistic teaching approach to engage young children in preferred activities. A toddler or child receiving ESDM therapy is taught skills in all developmental areas through a positive affect-based relationship. ESDM therapists are trained to provide intensive teaching within child lead activities to increase rates of development and learning. A well-developed set of learning objectives and ongoing data collection ensures each child is learning at their optimum level.
