This is Part 1 of a lecture I gave at the Rebecca School about how to instill the spirit of inquiry in kids, and help them into the world of symbolism. First, I showed a video from Ted Talks, about how X became the symbol for the unknown. Then I told a story about how my daughter dyed her eurythmy shoes.
I believe that simplicity is a virtue, and that DIR/Floortime is the simple, respectful, effective support for kids with neurodevelopmental challenges, and for all kids, and all people. Respect, support, and thinking, are really how we should be treating everyone.
