The Basic Course on the DIR/Floortime Model is online again!

The Online Basic Course on DIR/Floortime model will run from March 12th – May 9th, 2010.

Even if you’ve already read The Child With Special Needs: Encouraging Intellectual and Emotional Growth and feel like you understand it all, you might be helped by the additional explanations as well as videos of floortime in action.

There are also three online workshops available which look really interesting.

Here is a description I received in an e-mail:
