DIR® has a deep foundation in the science of human development and can sound very technical at times. However, it is also very simple. It is a way to understand our children and each other that builds connections, understanding, love, communication, and engagement. Through this approach, the true potential of each person can be discovered.
DIR is the Developmental, Individual-differences, & Relationship-based model that has become the foundation for understanding child development and providing support and intervention that helps children reach their fullest potential. The DIR® model is also a framework that helps clinicians, parents and educators conduct comprehensive assessments and develop educational and/or intervention programs tailored to the unique challenges and strengths of each child.
DIRFloortime® is the application of the DIR model into practice.
While the DIR model helps us understand and promote the positive development of all children, DIR and DIRFloortime are most commonly utilized with children with educational, social-emotional, mental health, and/or developmental challenges. DIRFloortime has become most widely known as an approach to support children with with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
