About KU Marcia Burgess Autism Specific Early Learning and Care Centre and KU Liverpool Preschool
KU Marcia Burgess Autism Specific Early Learning and Care Centre provides an evidence-based intervention (The Early Start Denver Model) for children with a diagnosis of autism. Our centre is funded by the Federal Government to deliver autism-specific education and care to 20 children a day, up to 5 years of age, in a long day care setting. Our centre is one of 6 ASELCCs across Australia and the only one in NSW.
The Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) is an evidence-based intervention specifically developed for children with autism aged between 12 – 60 months. It is a play-based intervention that fuses behavioural and developmental principles into an integrated approach. The Model is a Naturalistic Developmental Behavioural Intervention, and as such can be implemented across multiple settings, including the Specialist Child Care programs: ESDM Clinics and Preschool programs, if delivered by Certified ESDM therapists. It can also be delivered in the family home, by the child’s parents, simply within daily routines and play. Our KU MB ASELCC has implemented a variety of ESDM Programs across these multiple settings to address the needs of the many children and families on our wait list. We have opened up ESDM Clinics in Liverpool, Penrith and Hazelbrook and are currently adapting the ESDM to three of our Mainstream Preschools in Cobbitty, Airds and Macquarie Fields.
