What Is DIR?
The Developmental Individual Differences Relationship-based (DIR®) Model is an evidence based method developed by Dr. Stanley Greenspan. It is commonly utilized with children with educational, social-emotional, mental health, and/or developmental challenges, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder. The core belief of Greenspan’s Floortime Approach is that meaningful relationships and healthy development are the foundations of true learning, including academic skills.
“We have to teach a child how to be calm and how to enjoy it.”
