Development Happens Through Relationships Across a Lifetime

Invite your child's highest potential out using the DIR/Floortime® approach

We Advocate for the DIR/Floortime® Approach for Children with Developmental Delays


This approach is developmental in nature, not behavioural. Children have challenges with traditional academics until they master their Functional Emotional Developmental Capacities.

Individual Differences

Each child has individual processing differences that vary greatly from child to child. These need to be looked at in order to understand what is preventing a child from interacting with us.


With genuine affect, we create those warm & nurturing learning relationships that are tailored to a child’s individual differences and will help the child move ahead in their development.


Floortime™ is joining in the child’s interests to bring the child into a shared world where we create systematic challenges to help the child master each developmental capacity.
