Let's dive into the topic of neurodiversity, person first versus identify first language, puzzle pieces versus infinity symbols, supporting autonomy and identity, access to communication/AAC, prioritizing autistic voices, and the hot topic of ABA.

Marla Davis

DIR (Developmental, Individual-differences, & Relationship-based model) is a framework for understanding human development and highlights the important role of social-emotional development on overall human development. It also provides a framework for understanding how each person individually perceives and interacts with the world differently. DIR Floortime focuses on building relationships through developmentally appropriate activities that respect your child's individual differences. We will talk briefly about the model, and then talk about some of the easy to incorporate strategies associated with this model so that you can start to use them right away!
