This presentation will illustrate how the DIR model was successfully implemented in a public preschool center in NJ with three dedicated DIRFloortime® classes with trained staff and a DIR® Consultant who is a member of the Profectum Faculty. Participants will observe the progression of three students during a school year or longer through the use of case-based presentations with video, review of baseline and current data, and identification of targeted intervention strategies. The discussion will focus on which factors determine a child’s placement – parental choice, Early Intervention recommendations, Child Study Team Evaluations, and other factors. Methods for staff training including use of the Profectum Parent Toolbox (PPT) with data analysis on the transfer of knowledge using the PPT will be described. Also, administrative factors that support the integration of the DIR-FCD™ model into a public preschool program will be outlined. The successful implementation of DIR® in this public school setting serves as a model for other public, charter and private preschools.
