Caregiver Strategies for Building Infant Social Interaction

This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Tune in to hear Dr. Laurie Vismara discuss Infant Start, the Downward Extension of the Early Start Denver Model.

The speaker:

Laurie A. Vismara, Ph.D., BCBA-D, is a therapist and researcher in early autism intervention. She has spent the last 20 years contributing to the science and program development of the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM), named by Time magazine as one of the top 10 medical breakthroughs for early autism intervention. Over a dozen studies have found the ESDM to be effective and with gains maintained for infants and toddlers with or at risk of autism who have a wide range of learning styles and abilities. Dr. Vismara uses telehealth platforms and travels throughout the United States, Canada, and other countries to help publicly funded intervention programs and families develop the ESDM in their communities. Her coauthored book, An Early Start for Your Child with Autism: Using Everyday Activities to Help Kids Connect, Communicate, and Learn, covers practical strategies and tips to help families use the ESDM at home. Her second book, Coaching Parents of Young Children with Autism, helps early intervention providers coach and empower families in the ESDM.
