The DIRFloortime® model provides a foundation for the developmental speech-language pathologist to uncover the essentials for communication. Using the Functional Emotional Developmental Capacities (FCD™) model as a guide, this seminar will focus on the developmental process and the interface with communication development. Particular emphasis will be placed on identifying the importance of affect cueing, gestural communication and intentionality as important precursors to the comprehension and production of language. Video examples will provide insight into specific communication periods.
