What are the essential components to promote a student’s thinking, relating, and communicating? During this one day conference, participants will understand how Floortime™ and the DIR® model can be used with students across all ages to foster engagement and higher level thinking. Interdisciplinary breakout sessions will target areas such as attunement, sensory processing, communication, and relationships both within the school and at home. Presenters from the Rebecca School will show how following a student’s interest can both build a strong relationship and accomplish discipline specific goals. This conference is open to professionals and parents both new to Floortime™ and experienced practitioners.
