dirfloortime therapy

Experienced DIRFloortime Practitioner, Leanne Howlett, will work one-on-one with your family and your child to shape a program that is right for you. 


The Developmental, Individual Difference, Relationship-based (DIR) Model is a framework emphasizing the critical role of parents and other family members because of the importance of their emotional relationships with the child.  DIR stresses the importance of following your child's lead and yet challenging your child at the same time. 


The DIRFloortime model is based on the idea that emotion is critical to the growth of the mind. Following your child's lead by understanding his interests tells you the best way to challenge him/her to move up the developmental ladder.  


The objectives of the DIR Model are to build healthy foundations for social, emotional and intellectual capacities.  DIRFloortime is a specific technique that follows your child's natural emotional interests (lead) and at the same time challenges your child towards greater and greater mastery of social, emotional and intellectual capacities.    


DIRFloortime Therapy is priced at $100.00 per hour.
