For On The Floor #9

4 May

This is number 9 in a series of videos I am doing to help people who are looking to continue their DIRFloortime® at home in situations they find in their everyday lives. In this video, I talk about the importance of play, and tackle a problem some people may be having with their anxious children. Often, you can play your way out of difficult situations!

“For On The Floor” #8

23 Apr

This is the 8th video in the For On The Floor Videos, videos I am releasing to help parents and caregivers do DIRFloortime® at home during this time of physical distancing. In this video I give a tip about picking toys that promote abstraction.

For On The Floor #7

13 Apr

This is the 7th in the series of “For On The Floor” videos. These videos are quick, around 4 minute, videos to support people who are trying to do DIRFloortime® at home during this time of physical distancing. They are intended to be support for people who want to work with their children while doing everyday tasks they would be doing anyway at home. They are also available as a group at drgiltippy.com, Dr. Tippy’s Website.

For On The Floor #6

4 Apr

This is the 6th video in the “For On The Floor” videos. These are 4 minute videos offering help with doing DIRFloortime® at home to supplement the support people were getting in their schools, clinics or from their in-home therapists. These are simple, easy ideas so that people can continue to support their loved ones as they grow developmentally, in the context of in-home activities they would have to do anyway.

You can find all 6 videos in one place on my website: https://drgiltippy.com/2014/04/18/media/

“For On The Floor” #5, Why Wait?

30 Mar

This is the 5th video in the series “For On The Floor.” This is a series of 4 minute videos I am doing for people who want to do DIRFloortime® with their children during this time of social isolation, to replace the Floortime therapy they were previously getting, or who just want to try Floortime while they have the time with their children. In this video, I talk about why I make the shrugging gesture, and why I wait instead of prompting, and why prompting leads to bad unintended consequences.

These videos are all available in one place on my website: DrGilTippy.com
