When bullying comes into our lives as if we didn’t have enough to worry about it is not always easy but what this mother says is something to think about.
We all may have said or done something that borders on the respect of others and we should all be very considerate about the feelings of others as we would like them to be considerate about our feelings.
Take a look at Erin’s post and see if you would agree.
Following up with the last post from Marni Goltsman about Autism Interventions: ABA vs. Floortime, here she describes the first sessions of ABA and DIR Floortime®.
My son’s first sessions
This article is a mothers perspective of Autism Intervention and very interesting to read.
ABA vs. Floortime
Here she describes her viewpoint about the fact that you will be overwhelmed when your child is suddenly diagnosed with autism and what you can do to help. She describes the traditional ABA model but also the DIR Floortime® approach. As it turns out both methods combined in the right way have been helping her child with great success.
Another good read I found very interesting and helpful is Uniquely Human from Barry M. Prizant, PHD.
Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism
A really recommended reading for Floortime® beginners is the book “Engaging Autism” by Stanley Greenspan and Serena Wieder.
Engaging Autism: Using the Floortime Approach to Help Children Relate, Communicate, and Think
I am excited to tell that I will be opening a Floortime Clinic in The Therapy Collaborative Building at 150 Waterman St Ste 6, Providence, RI 02906 in January 2016.
Together with Cristen Sassi, M. Ed. OTR/L I will be providing Floortime therapy in individual and group sessions. We would love to hear from you and help your children to enhance their lives with the help of Floortime.
Please contact me for a consultation and appointments.
Looking forward to hear from you,
Intermediate DIR Floortime Practitioner
