Our Therapeutic Approaches
DIR ® Floortime
Floortime (also known as DIRFloortime) is an intervention that is used to promote an individual's development through a respectful, playful, joyful, and engaging process.
It uses the power of relationships and human connections to promote the development of the capacities for self-regulation, engagement, communication, shared social problem solving, and creative, organized, and reflective thinking and reasoning.
A sensory diet is a group of physical activities to help kids stay alert and calm at the right times. It can be used as part of sensory integration therapy. A sensory diet can help “even things out” if kids are overexcited at times or too tired at others. It can give kids the sensory input they need to be in a “just right” state.
Therapeutic Listening ®
Therapeutic Listening is a treatment approach which combines sound-based intervention with sensory integrative treatment techniques. It provides auditory stimulation, through the use of enhanced and specially recorded music, as a means of accessing the nervous system and stimulating areas of the brain used in listening and processing sensory information.
Circle of Security ®
The Circle of Security is a visual map of attachment. The “father” of attachment theory, John Bowlby, said this about attachment: "Intimate attachments to other human beings are the hub around which a person's life revolves, not only as an infant or a toddler or a schoolchild but throughout adolescence and years of maturity as well, and on into old age. From these intimate attachments a person draws strength and enjoyment of life and, through what he contributes, gives strength and enjoyment to others. These are matters about which current science and traditional wisdom are at one." (Bowlby, J. (1980) Attachment and Loss: Volume 1. Attachment. Basic Books: New York.)
Zones of Regulation ®
The Zones of Regulation framework and curriculum (Kuypers, 2011) teaches students scaffolded skills toward developing a metacognitive pathway to build awareness of their feelings/internal state and utilize a variety of tools and strategies for regulation, prosocial skills, self-care, and overall wellness. This includes exploring tools and strategies for mindfulness, sensory integration, movement, thinking strategies, wellness, and healthy connection with others.
Alert Program ®
The Alert Program® has boiled down complex theory to create simple, practical solutions you can incorporate into your everyday living. One of the analogies we use with children is, “If your body is like a car engine, sometimes it runs on high (hyped up), sometimes it runs on low (lethargic), and sometimes it runs just right (alert and focused).” But it’s not just children. We are all self-regulators.
Learn to Play ®
The aim of Learn to Play Therapy is to build the spontaneous pretend play ability of children. One of the great satisfactions of being a therapist, I have found, is to give a child the ability to play by him/herself and with others. In doing this, you become redundant as a therapist as children grow in their ability and generalise their play ability skills to home, neighbours, and early childhood settings.
