New York Times bestselling author and the Founder of TiLT
Behind every kid who is differently wired is likely to stand one or more frustrated, isolated, perhaps even burnt out‐feeling adult. We’re everywhere, but often feel completely isolated raising our neurologically atypical kids. In this practical and actioable talk, TiLT Parenting founder Debbie Reber shares ten powerful “tilts,” a.k.a. practical ideas to help parents shift their thinking and actions in a way that will help them feel more confidence and peaceful about their everyday reality, create a stronger family dynamic, and give their extraordinary children what they need to thrive.
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.

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.

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:
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.

Looking forward to hear from you,
