ICDL is the official home of the DIRFloortime® Training Program.  Starting with our Introduction to DIR® and DIRFloortime® course, participants can progress through our certificate courses to become a DIRFloortime® practitioner.
   Please review the DIRFloortime® Training Program page for important information.  We also recommend that you review the continuing education and course curriculum pages before registeringAll of our courses posted here are open t participants from anywhere in the world.  Most are posted in US Eastern Time (New York) just for consistency.  All courses are taught in English unless otherwise noted.  Case video presentations for 200 level courses can be in another language, but the participant must add English subtitles (this is fairly easy)
