The Developmental Capacities for Learning Blog at Affect Autism is meant to empower caregivers and practitioners with theory, tips, and tools on how to implement a developmental program called DIR/Floortime for children of all ages with developmental challenges. Here’s what’s new!

Coming Soon: Video logs!

As we are coming up on our one-year anniversary of Affect Autism, we want to reach more parents and practitioners who want to see the lives of people they care about improved by using a respectful, developmental approach rather than the resources that are currently available and publicly funded.

Video blogs will make Affect Autism more accessible by explaining each topic in a brief, to-the-point, summary video that can be easily shared on social media. Starting with our first blog from last year, we will go through each week and explain the concepts so that viewers can grasp what was presented in each blog. From there, they can delve into the topic more deeply by referring to the full blog post and printing or saving the KEY TAKE-AWAYS PDF summary sheet.
