What are the essential components to promote a student’s creativity and curiosity? During this one day conference, participants will understand how Floortime™ and the DIR® model can be used across the disciplinary domains with students of all ages. Breakout sessions will address a range of themes including how curiosity and creativity develop through meaningful relationships across the developmental ladder. By cultivating curiosity and creativity, students are able to build a strong foundation necessary for productive learning and development in a shared world. Presenters from the Rebecca School, the self-advocacy and ICDL community will show how following a student’s passion can both build a strong relationship and accomplish discipline specific goals. This conference is open to self-advocates, professionals and parents.
