In this Floortime® 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. The individualized family mentoring sessions tightly couple theory and practice to help you master specific skills to help your child. This class is suitable for parents of children ages 2 to 10, with issues of behavior, regulation, communication or developmental delays.
We will discuss child development and watch videotapes of child play to understand how Floortime® may help your child:
- Improve attention and regulation.
- Engage with you more strongly.
- Be more calm and organized.
- Communicate more effectively.
- Play with more complexity.
- Better understand themselves and others.
