Course Description

This course will cover the 6 developmental milestones of Dr. Stanley Greenspan's model of understanding the functional emotional capacities in typical children, applied to children with special needs. He started this model to target children on the autism spectrum, though it is widely used with multiple diagnostic categories today.

Together we will discover the importance of relationship, affect, and harnessing intrinsic motivation within the child to learn and grow. The attendee will leave the workshop equipped with ideas, techniques and practical information that can be used the very next day. The DIR/Floortime model is very complimentary to many models, including the model of Sensory Integration, and is not restricted to a certain age group.

Professionals working in school and preschool settings or in private practice will find this model helpful in understanding different behaviors, as well as gain strategies that can be applied to support learning behavior.
