Early Start Denver Model

The Early Start Denver Model is an evidence-based early intervention program for young children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The program focuses on enhancing a child’s development through a play-based curriculum.

The program involves a developmental assessment, which is used to establish the child’s goals for the program. Goals will be developed to target skill progression for each developmental domain.

These goals will be the focus of the program and are reviewed regularly to ensure the child is progressing. Certified ESDM therapists use intensive teaching methods within the natural play and daily routines to enhance the child’s development.
