Sinai-Gavrilov, Yana; Gev, Tali; Mor-Snir, Irit; Vivanti, Giacomo; Golan, Ofer – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2020
Early intensive intervention has been shown to significantly affect the development of children with autism spectrum disorder. However, the costly implementation of such interventions limits their wide dissemination in the community. This study examined an integration of the Early Start Denver Model into community preschool programs for children…

Lin, Tzu-Ling; Chiang, Chung-Hsin; Ho, Suk Yin; Wu, Hsin-Chi; Wong, Ching-Ching – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2020
The Early Start Denver Model is an evidence-based, comprehensive naturalistic developmental behavioral intervention. Randomized controlled studies indicate that long-term, high-intensity Early Start Denver Model in home-based settings can positively impact the clinical outcomes of young children with autism spectrum disorder. However, it is…

Colombi, Costanza; Narzisi, Antonio; Ruta, Liliana; Cigala, Virginia; Gagliano, Antonella; Pioggia, Giovanni; Siracusano, Rosamaria; Rogers, Sally J.; Muratori, Filippo – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2018
Identifying effective, community-based specialized interventions for young children with autism spectrum disorder is an international clinical and research priority. We evaluated the effectiveness of the Early Start Denver Model intervention in a group of young children with autism spectrum disorder living in an Italian community compared to a…

Contaldo, Annarita; Colombi, Costanza; Pierotti, Caterina; Masoni, Patrizia; Muratori, Filippo – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2020
Several studies have shown the efficacy and effectiveness of the Early Start Denver Model, both in university and in community-based settings. However, a limited number of studies have investigated predictors of outcomes. In this study, we examined outcomes in 32 children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder after 1 year of community-based…

Waddington, Hannah; van der Meer, Larah; Sigafoos, Jeff; Whitehouse, Andrew – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2020
Contemporary parent-implemented early intervention programs for children with autism spectrum disorder usually incorporate a range of techniques with different theoretical underpinnings. While research suggests that parents often learn to implement interventions with an acceptable degree of overall fidelity, there is limited research into parent…

Laister, Dominik; Stammler, Magdalena; Vivanti, Giacomo; Holzinger, Daniel – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2021
In children with autism spectrum disorder, atypical gesture use is a core deficit with consequences for social learning, social interaction, and language development. Little is known about the relevance of early gesture use in predicting developmental outcomes of children receiving early interventions targeting social-communicative behaviors such…

Vivanti, Giacomo; Dissanayake, Cheryl; Duncan, Ed; Feary, Jessica; Capes, Kristy; Upson, Shannon; Bent, Catherine A.; Rogers, Sally J.; Hudry, Kristelle – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
A major topic of debate is whether children with autism spectrum disorder should be educated in inclusive or specialized settings. We examined the feasibility and preliminary effectiveness of delivering the Group-Early Start Denver Model to children with autism spectrum disorder in inclusive versus specialized classrooms. We randomly assigned 44…

Vismara, Laurie A.; McCormick, Carolyn E. B.; Shields, Rebecca; Hessl, David – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
This is the first study to evaluate an autism intervention model, the parent-delivered Early Start Denver Model (P-ESDM), for young children with fragile X syndrome (FXS), a known genetic disorder associated with autism spectrum disorder. Four parent-child dyads participated in a low-intensity, parent coaching model of the P-ESDM to evaluate…

Waddington, Hannah; van der Meer, Larah; Sigafoos, Jeff – International Journal of Developmental Disabilities, 2021
Parents are the logical intervention agents for young children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The early start Denver model (ESDM) is a promising early intervention approach for children with ASD that can be implemented by parents. This study evaluated the effects of training parents in the use of the ESDM. We used a non-concurrent multiple…

Tupou, Jessica; Waddington, Hannah; Sigafoos, Jeff – Infants and Young Children, 2020
There is a need for research that evaluates the effectiveness of early intervention when delivered in inclusive preschools. In this study, 3 regular preschool teachers were trained to use the Early Start Denver Model with a child with autism spectrum disorder who attended an inclusive preschool. Each teacher worked with 1 child. Teachers received…

Ogilvie, Emily; McCrudden, Matthew T. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2017
An intervention has social validity to the extent that it is socially acceptable to participants and stakeholders. This pilot convergent mixed methods study evaluated parents' perceptions of the social validity of the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM), a naturalistic behavioral intervention for children with autism. It focused on whether the parents…

Waddington, Hannah; van der Meer, Larah; Sigafoos, Jeff; Ogilvie, Emily – International Journal of Developmental Disabilities, 2020
Objectives: Data indicate that some developmentally and behaviorally based early intervention programs can lead to a range of improvements in children with autism spectrum disorder. However, many such programs call for a fairly intensive amount of intervention. The objective of this preliminary study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a…

Vismara, Laurie A.; McCormick, Carolyn E. B.; Wagner, Amy L.; Monlux, Katernia; Nadhan, Anna; Young, Gregory S. – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2018
Telehealth training may benefit parents' use of early intervention for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This study is one of the few randomized trials to compare telehealth parent training in the Early Start Denver Model (P-ESDM) with a community treatment-as-usual, early intervention program. Parents were randomized to 12 weekly…

Baril, Erika M.; Humphreys, Betsy P. – Journal of Early Intervention, 2017
The Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) has been gaining popularity as a comprehensive treatment model for children ages 12 to 60 months with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). This article evaluates the research on the ESDM through an analysis of study design and purpose; child participants; setting, intervention agents, and context; density and…

Short-term low intensity parent implemented intervention studies for toddlers with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have found it difficult to demonstrate significantly improved developmental scores or autism severity compared to community treatment. We conducted a randomized comparative intent-to-treat study of a parent implemented intervention to…
