“It can be done just about anywhere, and Dawson says the play-based method of engaging a child helps him or her develop a social relationship.
The study began with 48 children in Seattle and Sacramento, California, who were between who were between 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 years old. Half of the children received a total of 20 hours of ESDM therapy over five days a week.
But since parents can be taught the methods in just a few hours, they could engage their children using the ESDM method as well.

The number of hours spent with therapists was the same in both groups.”
