DIR 350: Using the DIR® Fidelity Scale
This course will introduce the DIR/Floortime Implementation Fidelity measure to practitioners working in a DIR/Floortime model. Participants will apply use of the Fidelity measure to a case, scoring it and reflecting on how the results can be used to guide practice. Measuring the fidelity of a program can help to guard against deviations from service delivery and can be used to enhance the quality of service provision.
The DIR® Fidelity Scale
The DIR® Fidelity Scale is free to use. Please note, those completing it must have at least a DIR® Advanced (DIR-A) certificate. Anyone can join the course to learn how the tool works and how to use it, but raters using the scale must have a DIR-A credential. The DIR® Fidelity Scale and Manual can be downloaded by clicking here.
PROFESSIONAL CONTINUING EDUCATION
All participants can request a Certificate of Attendance documenting hours of participation and available professional continuing education credits at the time of registration. Please note that continuing education credit is only provided for direct seat time. Course preparation including readings, lectures, and mentoring is not included in the CE hour or credit total. This course is a live online course and participants must log in individually to the online classroom, following the instructions provided by ICDL and with their camera on, so there is a record of each participant's attendance individually. If participants join in a room with a group, each participant must still log in on their own device so ICDL can see each participant and verify each individual's login and log out of the online classroom. Participants must attend the entire course to get CE credit. Partial credit is not an option.

According to the ATR-BC Recertification Standards, ICDL training programs that are approved by one of the other national continuing education boards listed on this page, may be eligible for Art Therapy continuing education credit. These standards state, "CECs will be accepted for all courses or events that fit in the ATCB Eligible Content Areas and that are presented or approved by any of the following art therapy, mental health, or behavioral sciences entities: state licensing authority, national professional organization, or national credentialing body for continuing education credit." It is the responsibility of each participant to determine if an ICDL program qualifies or not. ICDL is not an approved ATR-BC continuing education provider and as such can not award ATR-BC continuing education credits directly. However, we are approved by organizations like NBCC which may meet the above-quoted standard.
MT-BCs can claim credits for the course under the Other Continuing Education Opportunities category for recertification. Please refer to the Recertification Manual for additional details
