    Dr. Tippy,

    I need to create an annotated bibliography of single study design
    research associated with DIR/Floortime for a graduate level course I’m taking. Can you tell me the best way to find this research. I haven’t had much luck on academic search engines, which is probably due to my lack of experience using this type of search engine. Any help would be most appreciated.

    Thank you,
