DIR 101: An Introduction to DIR® and DIRFloortime

1Training Purpose
This training will introduce and examine the Developmental, Individual difference, Relationship-based (DIR) model, which is an established and recognized framework to understand a child’s development that was developed by Dr. Stanley Greenspan. DIR explains a child’s developmental stages, individual differences, and the role emotion and relationships have in a child’s development. The training will present an introduction to the DIRFloortime (AKA Floortime) approach, with the developmentally appropriate interactions, interventions, and practices geared to each child’s developmental profile. The DIR model is applicable for all children and the DIRFloortime approach is particularly used as an intervention for children with Autism and other developmental disabilities.
Students successfully completing this course will be able to:
  1. Identify common features of autism and other challenges of relating and communicating
  2. Identify the key features of relationship-based approaches
  3. Describe the 6 Functional Emotional Developmental Capacities (FEDCs) in the DIR model and potential challenges that children face at each capacity
  4. Understand and describe the "I" in DIR - individual differences and how health, sensory processing, and regulatory challenges can impact a child's development
  5. Describe key principles and basic strategies of Floortime
  6. Understand and articulate the role of relationship and family in the DIR model
  7. Understand and articulate the essential role of affect as it is related to the D, the I, and the R
More information on the DIRFloortime Training Program and the DIRFloortime approach can be found at the ICDL website at www.icdl.com. The research and evidence to support DIR and DIRFloortime continues to grow.
