Are you a parent of a child with autism or work with a child with autism? Do you want to learn skills to support their learning and engagement? The Victoria University of Wellington autism research team is hosting an education workshop teaching some of the strategies from the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM).

The ESDM was named one of the TIME magazine’s top medical breakthroughs of 2010. The ESDM is a play-based behavioural therapy that targets a wide range of developmental skills for children with autism spectrum disorder under the age of 5. This kind of early intervention is vital, as the symptoms of autism can reduce the number of social learning opportunities children experience. The ESDM therapy, therefore, aims to accelerate learning, reduce the symptoms of autism, and teach key developmental skills to stop these children from falling behind their peers.

Our team leader, Dr. Hannah Waddington (certified ESDM therapist, educational psychologist, and lecturer) will be running our first ESDM workshop focusing on hands-on strategies for building positive interactions with your child. The specific focus of this workshop will be "building back and forth interactions"

Tickets for this event are $10, places are limited to 30 people.
