Are you a parent of a child with autism or do you work with a child with autism? Do you want to learn skills to support their play with others? The Victoria University of Wellington Autism Clinic is hosting an education workshop teaching some of the strategies from the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM).
Our team leader Dr Hannah Waddington (lecturer, certified ESDM therapist, and practicing educational psychologist) will be running this ESDM workshop focusing on hands-on strategies for supporting your child in their play with others, both with and without toys.
Tickets for this event are $25 for professionals and $15 for whānau members of children with autism. Places are limited to 35 people.
We highly recommend also attending our introductory workshop if you are new to ESDM.

The ESDM is an extremely promising intervention which has been used in over 35 countries worldwide. It is a play-based behavioural therapy that targets a wide range of developmental skills for children under the age of 5 who have, or are suspected to have, autism. ESDM therapy aims to accelerate child learning and teach key developmental skills through fun interactions which are embedded in daily routines and play.
