DIRFloortime Training Crossover Path for Fielding Grad Students
The infant and early childhood courses in the Fielding Graduate School, while heavily weighted in DIRFloortime® principles and practice, were not designed to assess competencies for the DIRFloortime® Certificate. The Fielding Graduate School, in collaboration with the DIRFloortime®  Training Program, has a clear, cost-efficient path for Fielding Infant and Early Childhood Development graduate students to demonstrate their competencies in the DIR® model and Floortime® principles and achieve their DIRFloortime® Certificate of Competency.
