who will assist you to improve the physical functioning, language, social skills, play skills, activities of daily living, learning and development of your child.
In addition to Speech, OT, Psychology, Physio and Group, DIR/Floortime is an additional therapy service that Kalparrin offers.
DIR/Floortime is a therapy approach to promote social, emotional and intellectual development in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and/or social communication difficulties. The model promotes child development through motivating play based interactions which are tailored to the child’s emotional and developmental level. The therapy approach promotes development in several areas such as self regulation, communication, cognition and motor skills.
It’s recommended that children start the program as early as possible.
Some of our therapists at Kalparrin are also trained to ‘coach’ caregivers in using the model to transfer to home life
