About the Course
In this Floortime TM workshop, you will learn DIR® techniques developed by Stanley Greenspan, MD and Serena Wieder, PhD. DIR® focuses on the child-parent (or caregiver) relationship as the heart of learning and development. You will learn how to play with your child to better support his/her development and emotional growth. This course tightly couples theory and practice to help you master specific skills to help your child. Suitable for parents of children ages 2 to 10, with issues of behavior, regulation, communication, or developmental delays.
This course is suitable for parents of children between 2 and 10 with issues of regulation, behavior, communication, ASD, or developmental delays. Parents have reported that these workshops have empowered them by giving them tools and strategies in a context of camaraderie with other parents.
We will discuss child development and watch videotapes of child play to understand how Floortime may help your child:
- Improve attention and focus.
- Engage with you more strongly.
- Be more calm and organized.
- Communicate more effectively.
- Play with more complexity.
- Better understand themselves and others
