This month-long live online conference is focused on using a Developmental Individual-differences and Relationship-based (DIR) model to promote development "from the inside out". Promoting development is not about simply training or teaching skills. Promoting development is a "bottom up" and "inside out" process of helping people grow and develop. Using DIRFloortime professionals and parents alike can fully engage in promoting a child's development and increasing their capacity for self-regulation, engagement, communication, problem solving, and thinking and reasoning.

Through lectures, case studies, research reviews, and discussions, participants will have many opportunities throughout the month to deepen their understanding of DIRFloortime and ow to effectively promote development, in particular for children with autism and other developmental challenges. DIRFloortime is most relevant to children 0-36 months of age.
