PROGRAM FOCUS

The Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) brings together the teaching of behavioral analysis with approaches based on developmental relationships, such as parent-child and teacher-pupil.

 

The model blends the discipline of behavior analysis with play-based routines as a way to build a relationship with the child with autism. The approach can start with children as young as 12 months old.

The SCERTS® Model is a comprehensive, team-based, multidisciplinary model for enhancing abilities in Social Communication and Emotional Regulation, and implementing Transactional Supports for children and older individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and their families.

Developed by child psychiatrist Stanley Greenspan, Floortime™ is a treatment method and a philosophy for interacting with autistic children.  It is based on the premise that the child can increase and build a larger circle of interaction with an adult who meets the child at his current developmental level and who builds on the child’s particular strengths.

ABA is a science that involves the application of principles of learning to improve socially important behavior to a meaningful degree and to demonstrate scientifically that the procedures used are responsible for the change in behavior.  (Adapted from Cooper, Heron and Heward, 1987)
