Dr. Tippy’s Webinar on DIR/Floortime and Schools

7 Oct

Link to Dr. Tippy's Webinar at ICDL
I did a webinar for the The Interdisciplinary Council on Developmental and Learning Disorders (ICDL) on DIR/Floortime and its use in schools, Rebecca School particularly. I made the point that DIR/Floortime is directly in the center of best practices for Early Childhood Education. How foolish, it seems to me, to treat children with developmental challenges with behaviorism, when developmental treatment is available, effective, and respectful. I quoted from personal conversations with Stanley Greenspan, MD, where he said that instead of seeing a developmental challenge as a problem, we should see them as an opportunity. He believed that a developmental challenge was an open window, and that you could work appropriately, and deliberately developmentally in that open window. How beautifully typical of Dr. Greenspan, to see a challenge as an advantage. Well, enjoy the webinar, and I hope you continue to follow the series at ICDL.
