DIR/Floortime is a comprehensive approach to working with infants, children and their families with a variety of developmental challenges, including autism spectrum disorders. Specifically, Floortime looks at the individual’s Functional Emotional Level(s), the individual’s unique processing differences and being able to assist the individual in developing and creating relationships that will help the child move up the developmental ladder.

Unique to Floortime is the approach of following the child’s lead and meeting the child where he/she is at developmentally. It includes PLAY and learning how to join the child’s lead and pulling them into a shared world. Karen works with and coaches families to help them learn how to meet their child at their specific Functional Emotional Level, share their world, and to help them become empathetic, creative, logical and reflective individuals.
