We chose play

Joy every day

We chose play is a series documenting one family’s Floortime journey

With each episode, you’ll glean insights, tips, and reflections–what I learned and what I know now that I would tell myself back then, along the way. In Season 1, we share our experience understanding this approach, its mindset prerequisites, and learning and applying Floortime. You’ll see many Floortime videos and coaching, along with tips from Floortime expert training leaders. In Season 2, you’ll see our adventures with Floortime intensives at Maude Le Roux‘s Floortime clinic, A Total Approach. I hope ‘We chose play‘ will support your Floortime experience.

Episode 1: In the beginning… The necessary step we had to take after the diagnosis to move forward.

Episode 2: What did we miss? How parents question themselves and why it’s so important to avoid blame.

Episode 3: How do we start? Understanding the most important thing you can do to help your child.

Episode 4: Let’s start Looking at your child’s individual profile to inform your play.

I’ve had some very great feedback on the series so far from parents:

It’s such an accurate representation of what we went through, as I’m sure many others have, too. I think it will resonate with so many people.

I finally had a chance to watch the first episode of ‘We Chose Play’, and it was so moving and inspiring. Thank you for sharing your family’s story! It is so helpful as we are on our own Floortime journey. I’m so grateful that I found your site and Floortime.

and from practitioners:

I just finished episode one. What a beautiful, emotional and inspirational episode! Thank you so much for sharing this with everyone! Looking forward to the future episodes!

Thank you so much for sharing all of this! It is so needed and so helpful. Your vulnerability is going to support someone’s journey so much.

I have only positive accolades and I told everyone that I work with that they should watch this and I’m an advocate. My whole team is taking DIR 101 and honestly, I think your class might have been the better entry ‘training’, not only because of your style, because you’re a Mom, because you make it so accessible, but you bring in all the elements that I learned in DIR 101, 201, and some of the other courses I’ve taken. You bring them in in real ways that are meaningful, and I’m not a parent. I’m an educator. I’m not in that ‘inner circle’, per say. I’m one step out, but as a human being, I felt that this was so much more accessible.
