On Tuesday night, I presented DIR/Floortime: A Parent’s Perspective to an audience in Halton Hills, Ontario as part of an event introducing Excel Strategic Learning Center to the Halton Region near Toronto. You can see the recording of the LIVE PRESENTATION by clicking on the links below.
Part 1 is an introduction to the DIR® model and Floortime, then we watched a VIDEO of the DIR/Floortime® brain research study at York University. Finally Part 2 is my perspective as a parent: what worked for us, challenges we faced and how we overcame them, what you can expect, the benefits, the costs, and what you can start doing right now.
