Gil on the “Affect Autism” Podcast

2 Feb

This week I’m in a discussion with my friend Daria at “Affect Autism.” She saw my presentation at a conference recently on the topic, “Good Autism Education is Just Good Education, and she wanted me to do a video interview and a podcast on that subject. You can hear or see the entire thing by clicking on the hyperlink above. In the five minute clip above, Daria Brown suggests that the educational system is geared to educate the 95% of the students in the middle of the “bell curve”, or normal distribution of students, and that is why it doesn’t serve students with developmental challenges well. I disagree, and the above is my answer and explanation.

“For On The Floor” #10

29 May

This is the 10th video in the “For On The Floor” videos to support parents and caregivers at home who want to use DIRFloortime® in everyday situations. This video is about getting out and doing Floortime in “the larger ecological context,” as we said in Respecting Autism, as restrictions on movement in public places are lifting. I suggest orienteering, as a way to get kids moving in 3 dimensional space.

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.
