Over the course of three months, an Occupational Therapist from Pediatric Partners Clinic in Fargo was able to complete their certification in DIR Floortime. DIR (Developmental, Individual Difference, Relationship-based) Floortime is a model that helps children to develop self-regulating, purposeful communication, problem solving skills, and meaningful relationships.
This strength- based approach will allow for the therapist to build on what the child is interested in and what they do well. Implementing this model will help patients regulated their bodies, emotions, and communicate more effectively so they can participate better in activities that are meaningful to them.
