DIR®/Floortime™ Groups

What is DIR®/Floortime™?

"The objectives of the DIR®/Floortime™ Model are to build healthy foundations for social, emotional, and intellectual capacities rather than focusing on skills and isolated behaviors."

"Central to the DIR®/Floortime™ Model is the role of the child's natural emotions and interests which has been shown to be essential for learning interactions that enable the different parts of the mind and brain to work together and to build successively higher levels of social, emotional, and intellectual capacities. Floortime™ is a specific technique to both follow the child's natural emotional interests (lead) and at the same time challenge the child towards greater and greater mastery of the social, emotional and intellectual capacities."

"The DIR®/Floortime™ Model, is a comprehensive framework which enables clinicians, parents and educators to construct a program tailored to the child's unique challenges and strengths."
