Another way to FLOORTIME!

My friend is diagnosed with autism. Today I was baffled by his behavior.

After taking a moment to contemplate human nature and my own tendencies it all made sense. It's time to provide everybody with the acceptance they deserve.

• • Finally, over the last 5 years, multiple international studies have been published proving the effectiveness of Floortime and Floortime-based approaches.

The lack of empirical and scientific evidence has always been the major critique of Floortime, but now with clinical and neurological data it is certain that Floortime works at not only the behavioral level, but also the neurological.

•• For the last 30 years Dr. Greenspan knew that Floortime worked from a clinical perspective. • •


• • Having successfully treated thousands of families, and achieving levels of development with children some doctors described as impossible he knew that it was just a matter of time before there was enough evidence to support his intervention.
