COVID-19 Update

Policy Update as of May 18, 2021: We understand that many clinics and schools around the world remain closed which makes our case presentation format impractical or impossible for many. We have reworked our curriculum to temporarily allow participants to earn a Basic Certificate (DIR 201) without conducting a typical case presentation. This only applies to participants that are unable to work with children right now due to COVID and is not a "convenience option". Please note that each participant will still be required to demonstrate Floortime competencies. It is still a practicum course and we are fully accepting online sessions for presentations. Our instructors will also use alternate learning processes such as role plays and case reflections to facilitate the learning and assess your understanding of the model.

I took the DIR 101 a couple of months ago and then I signed up for the 201 course. I am currently in the [DIR 201] class and I just have to tell you in my 25 years of being an OT and going to hundreds of courses all over the world I can honestly say that this is one of my all-time favorites. [The Expert Training Leaders] are knowledgeable, supportive, caring, and true mentors. I can honestly say this class is life-changing and I am enjoying every minute of it. - Recent DIR 201 Participant
