This course is designed to provide specialized instruction to educators, parents, and therapists on how to integrate the principles of DIRFloortime® with best practices in education. We will engage in discussions and reflections that lead to views of our existing knowledge and practices as they relate to student learning. Discussions for each class will center around a Functional Emotional Developmental Level and how we can use that level to support and promote academic growth with our children. Reflective problem-solving and collaboration around experiences will be considered in order to learn how to create a learning environment for our students that is unique to their individual needs.

Learning Objectives

Describe how learning and the DIR® principles can be aligned and used to promote academic development

Explain the reasons why regulation, shared attention, and engagement are critical for learning

Learn how to create meaningful hands-on learning opportunities for your students/children

Who should attend?

Educators, parents, and any discipline-specific therapist.
