Developed by a trained multi-disciplinary team at the MIND Institute, ESDM integrates a relationship-focused developmental model with the well-validated practices of Applied Behaviour Analysis to provide an effective program for young children and their families.
The Early Start Denver Model is delivered by Certified Early Start Denver Model therapists.
Becoming a certified ESDM Therapist is a multi-step process. In order to become a certified ESDM therapist, professionals are required to have read the manual, attend two workshops and submit materials that demonstrate their competency in the ESDM immediately following the Advanced Workshop.
All steps in the certification process are expected to be completed within six to twelve months.
Early Start Australia is currently training a number of therapists in the delivery of ESDM. Please note, service and program delivery vary between clinics so please ensure you check directly with the clinic as to whether they can deliver ESDM.
