SUPPORTING FLOORTIME FAMILIES

An Ongoing DIRFloortime® Support, Education, and Coaching Opportunity for Parents

This is a parent peer support program led by D. Brown from Affect Autism, ICDL’s Parent Advocate. She is a parent of a child on the Autism Spectrum and holds a Master’s degree and an Advanced DIRFloortime® Certificate.

Parents often feel stressed and confused about how to best help their child on the Autism spectrum flourish and grow. These support sessions are designed to allow for parents to discuss these issues while learning more about Floortime and how a DIR® approach can help their child and their family.

The live online sessions will take place twice a month for a total of six sessions: November 8, 22, Dec 6, Jan 10, 24, and Feb 7. Each session will be 90 minutes. Pre-requisite: An Introductory Course in DIR®

Please note: This is not a clinical treatment program. This is a parent-led support service. ICDL strongly encourages parents to also obtain professional clinical support from a DIRFloortime provider. You can search for providers HERE.
