All children move through stages one building on the next. These stages are based on early emotional interactions. They provide the basis for our intellect, communication skills, and sense of self, as well as the basis for such familiar skills as counting and taking turns.
These functional skills are the underpinning of all advanced thinking, problem solving and coping.
Floortime Therapy believes that the key to unlocking a child’s full potential lies in the relationship between the child and caregiver.
It is a specific technique to both follow the child’s natural emotional interests and at the same time challenge the child towards greater mastery of their social, emotional, and intellectual capacities.
