The ESDM for Therapists is an advanced workshop for professionals who work with children with ASD. It is the standardised Therapist workshop developed by Sally Rogers and Geraldine Dawson (MIND Institute UC Davis). These workshops are for degree-qualified professionals (including speech therapists, occupational therapists, teachers, behaviour therapists and psychologists), who would like to learn how to carry out ongoing therapy using the Early Start Denver Model. In a group of 3 to 5 professionals you will receive hands-on practice with children with ASD. These workshops are also delivered remotely via a live zoom stream to facilitate access for all interested professionals throughout these restricted times and for those who are located remotely and unable to travel. The remote delivery Advanced Workshops is delivered as a series of 6 half day sessions, each a week apart. This has the added advantage of allowing flexibility for work professionals, and time between each session for reflection and practice back in your own workplace.
You will also receive live or online supervision to assess a child with ASD and then develop and implement your ESDM intervention program. Coaching and feedback will be provided by your certified trainer across the three days or the 6 half day sessions for remote delivery participants, to build your skills and confidence.
It is important that professionals wishing to provide ESDM Therapy continue through a certification process, following the Advanced Workshop, to achieve fidelity in delivering this model of intervention. This is the only way you can become a Certified ESDM Therapist. Follow up supervision and mentoring are provided throughout this process, including monthly booster coaching sessions to help keep participants on track. This certification process is strongly encouraged to deliver the model at fidelity and its most authentic level. See below for further details.
