DIR Floortime?

DIR Floortime is an approach of early intervention for children with autism. This approach focuses on children’s relationships with others while taking into account their individual differences.
The goal of this approach is to facilitate the child to have a healthy social-emotional development, which is essential for children with autism.
How does DIR Floortime work?

DIR Floortime takes place in a calm environment. Therapists engage children through the activities each child enjoys, by following the child’s lead and helping to engage the child in increasingly complex interactions. The main focus of this interaction is a back-and-forth play, because it builds the foundation for shared attention, engagement, problem solving, and other complex skills.
