Dr. Tippy Speaking at two conferences on the East Coast on November 9th and November 12th

25 Oct

I will be speaking at two conferences in November. On November 9th I will be taking part in a really cool conference at The Center for Discovery up near the site of the Woodstock Music Festival, on the subject of “Clinical Implications of Music Therapy for Children with Autism.” This talk will be a part of a conference called “Communication, Socialization and Harmony: Music Therapy and Autism Spectrum Disorders.” There are some great presenters, including my friend and colleague, Stacey Hensel, the great music therapist with whom I am privileged to work at the Rebecca School. If you click on this link: MTWorkshop_Invite_2011_5 it will open up the invite to the conference in pdf form, and give you all the information.

The second conference is the Interdisciplinary Council on Developmental and Learning Disorders (ICDL’s) annual conference in Washington, D.C. I will be speaking about what I have written about in Respecting Autism, how you take the DIR/Floortime model and turn it into a school intervention. Along the way I will be giving my opinion about some other ways of intervening with kids and adults on the Autism Spectrum, so it promises to be fun. If you click on the link:ICDL Conference Concurrent Sessions, it will take you to the ICDL website, and to the page describing my session. This is the organization started by Dr. Greenspan, so they are true to the model as he conceived of it. This is a truly worthwhile conference, so if you are near, and you want to hear about DIR as it was intended to be, then try to get there. Also, I will be doing a book signing at the conference, so that alone is worth the trip!
