DIR®/Floortime Therapy™

DIR

We are a group of expert clinicians that incorporate the DIR® Model to help young children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other developmental disorders meet their fullest potential. Our intervention is focused on building the core challenges such as the ability to relate and communicate with others. This model, developed by Dr. Stanley Greenspan and Dr. Serena Wieder, helps individuals conduct a comprehensive assessment and develop an intervention program tailored to the unique challenges and strengths of each child.

We offer many forms of therapy for children with Autism. Browse our services menu to explore your treatment options.

The objectives of the DIR®/Floortime™ Model, developed by Dr. Stanley Greenspan and Dr. Serena Wieder, are to build healthy foundations for social, emotional, and intellectual capacities rather than focusing on skills and isolated behaviors.
