The value of play as a catalyst for developmental integration for children whose developmental pathways are compromised is a defining principle of the DIR Model approach. In this and other play-based interventions, determining and respecting what the child finds meaningful and playful is the first step in energizing the child’s inevitable developmental potential. Once this step is taken, promoting the integration of movement, thinking, language, communication, social, and emotional strands of development can be nourished in the moments of playful interactions between adult and child.
