We Advocate for the Developmental, Individual differences, Relationship-based (DIR®) Approach for Children with Developmental Challenges
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.
