Autism researcher Sally J. Rogers has received $15.3 million to test the effects of an intensive intervention for toddlers with autism that combines play- and relationship-based approaches with applied behavior analysis. This five-year study is the first multisite, randomized trial funded by the National Institutes of Health to determine if intervention earlier than 24 months of age is effective for children in reducing or circumventing the language impairments and social deficits associated with autism. The Early Start Denver Model intervention was developed by Rogers; Geraldine Dawson, a study consultant and professor emeritus of psychology at the University of Washington; and their collaborators at the University of Washington, the M.I.N.D. Institute and University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.
