GREENSPAN FLOORTIME PDF

Stanley Greenspan. Floortime meets children where they are and builds upon their strengths and abilities through creating a warm relationship and interacting. It challenges them to go further and to develop who they are rather than what their diagnosis says. In Floortime, you use this time with your child to excite her interests, draw her to connect to you, and challenge her to be creative, curious, and spontaneous—all of which move her forward intellectually and emotionally.

The intervention is called Floortime because the parent gets down on the floor with the child to play and interact with the child at their level. Therapists and parents engage children through the activities each child enjoys. Six Key Milestones of Floortime Floortime aims to help the child reach six key milestones that contribute to emotional and intellectual growth: Self-regulation and interest in the world Intimacy, or engagement in relationships Two-way communication Emotional ideas Emotional thinking Therapists teach parents how to direct their children into more and more complex interactions.

Floortime does not work on speech, motor or cognitive skills in isolation. It addresses these areas through its focus on emotional development. Overall, this method encourages children with autism to push themselves to their full potential. Floortime takes place in a calm environment. This can be at home or in a professional setting. Therapy sessions range from two to five hours a day. They include training for parents and caregivers as well as interaction with the child.

The Original Floortime

He also said that it is these emotional experiences and emotional perceptions that help us organize and integrate the different parts of our brain to develop a true understanding of the world around us. Having studied under behavioral conditioning leaders such as BF Skinner and studied the works of Sigmund Freud and Jean Piaget, he determined that it was our emotions that drive and select our behavior. In , he first described his Floortime approach as a way to help every child reach their maximum potential. By encouraging growth from the inside, and letting that drive behavior and thinking, he saw that his results were comprehensive and lasting. We now know from neurological research done over the last 50 years that he was right.

Introduction[ edit ] The Developmental, Individual-difference, Relationship-based DIR model is the formal name for a new, comprehensive, individualized approach to assess, understand, and treat children who have developmental delays including, but not limited to: Autism Spectrum Disorder. Focusing on the building blocks of healthy development, this approach is also referred to as the "Floortime" or "DIRFloortime" approach. However, Floortime is actually a strategy within the DIR model that emphasizes the creation of emotionally meaningful learning exchanges that encourage developmental abilities. The goal of treatment within the DIR model is to build foundations for healthy development rather than to work only on the surface of symptoms and behaviors. Here, children learn to master critical abilities that may have been missed along their developmental track.
