As part of our cognitive innovation initiative, Re:Cognition Health has launched the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) for young children with Autism.

Though established in the USA 20 years ago, Re:Cognition Health are the first clinic to launch the Model in the UK.

The model is a developmental, naturalistic and relationship-centred programme for children aged 12 months to approximately 5 years. It is delivered by therapists and parents at home, in the clinic and in group settings

Key Facts

  • Public Health England 2016 quoted that up to 1 in 10 young people between the ages of 5 to 16 years suffer from a diagnosable mental health illness.
  • Scientific evidence shows that up to 50% of mental health disorders appear before the age of 14, and that up to 75% of the mental health disorders would be expressed before the age of 18.
  • Early, accurate diagnosis for neurodevelopmental disorders and mental health is pivotal for the evolving advancement of children and young people and to prevent psychiatric disorders in adulthood.
  • It is therefore crucial that mental health in young people is considered and properly treated.
