The DIR Floortime™ approach was developed by Dr Stanley Greenspan and Ms Serena Wieder in the USA as a playful approach to assess and support the child's social, emotional, physical and intellectual capacities. It is recommended for children who have difficulties communicating with, and relating to, people. This includes children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, attention disorders and developmental challenges. Floortime™ is a developmental approach that anchors on the relationships of those closest to the child to mediate his/her inidividual differences and support development. It is an integrated transdiciplinary approach to understanding and supporting development.
