What is DIRFloortimeⓇ/Floortime?
The Developmental, Individual Differences, and Relationship-Based (DIRFloortime) model is a play-based therapy that seeks to help your child progress through creativity and connection. It is a child-led but still targeted approach where all or most of the child’s senses will be engaged while using their emotional and motor skills.
Professionals such as child psychologists and special education teachers can become certified to provide Floortime. Parents can also implement Floortime at home. For more information, check out our article Behavioral Interventions beyond ABA.
