“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 #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” #4, Folding Laundry

26 Mar

In this video I offer my very latest thinking on Next/Gen developmental education while folding laundry. In about 4 minutes, I try to teach a fundamental principle for developmental interventions. It is a sophisticated lesson that I would only teach to the most advanced DIRFloortime® practitioners, or parents, who are the experts on their child.

For On The Floor #3, Joy and Spontaneity

24 Mar

This is the third video in the series “For On The Floor,” a series of DIRFloortime® videos for people who want to continue doing Floortime at home during this time of social isolation. I am trying to give 4 minute lessons in how to do Floortime while you are doing home tasks that need to get done anyway. This video makes a point about the joy and spontaneity that makes Floortime so much fun to do.

All of the videos are also available through my website: drgiltippy.com

“For On The Floor” #1

19 Mar

I realize that many of you are parents of children on the Autism Spectrum, and you are now home with your children for some time. If you want support to do a little DIRFloortime® with your children, at home, while you are doing your regular home chores, I am offering a free series of 4 minute videos I’m calling, “For On The Floor.” This is the first one, and in it I talk about how you can turn your regular cooking situation into a DIRFloortime® session.

I will try to turn these out as fast as I can, so keep checking back for more. They will also be available on my website, drgiltippy.com, and on my youtube channel.

In this time of great challenge, I wanted to offer parents and other loved ones of children and others on the spectrum a little free support. I hope you find them useful.

Respectfully,

Gil
