“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.

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

“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” #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

How a Behavioral Intervention Might Impede Progress in Autism

11 Dec

This is part of a presentation I gave at theInterdisciplinary Counsel for Development and Learning, ICDL’s, International Conference in San Francisco this year. In it I explain why punishing, or prompting or working behaviorally in general, sets back the development of the person on the receiving end of the intervention. I explain in detail a graph I use to teach therapists and families why they should not mix an applied behavioral intervention with a DIRFloortime® intervention.

The “Glinda Strategy”

This is a brief clip, from the end of my presentation at the Interdisciplinary Council for Development and Learning’s 2019 International Conference in San Francisco. It starts on a slide of a chapter I just published in the book, “Autism 360°.”

I wanted to empower therapists and parents to advocate vigorously whenever they see people misrepresenting which interventions have rigorous data over a long time that supports their interventions. I called it “The Glinda Strategy” in honor of everyone’s favorite good witch, Glinda, from the”Wizard of Oz.” Click on the cc at the bottom of the video to turn on the Closed Captioning, if it is not already turned on.
