DIR/Floortime ®

DIR/Floortime®

DIR/Floortime® approach was originally developed by Dr. Stanley Greenspan, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics, through his research and play intervention focused primarily on pediatric populations diagnosed with Autism and related disorders.  By using affect and following the child’s lead in preferred play, the hope of building strong relationships will ultimately build stronger communication and interaction skills over time.  This intervention also involves a strong parent involvement for carry over in the home for success in all settings.
