A physiological state of calm attention is the foundation to all growth and development. Rapid state changes into stress responses, underlie many conditions across diagnostic categories.

In case you missed it... "... remember who you are; you are my son..." Happy Father's Day!

“…they can’t express it but it doesn’t mean it’s not there. They often live very rich lives inside there, if you can get in there with them, you can discover that.” Ron Suskind

Ron Suskind, Pulitzer Prize winning author, does an amazing job explaining the big picture concept of developmental approach (affinity) therapy as he shares his very personal story of his family and his son with autism.

Watch the exclusive interview with Jon Stewart!

"The magic of #DIR, and Profectum!"
Like most magical moments, I didn’t expect it. I took the Profectum class for Peter’s sake, so I’d be better at helping him along in his development. I feel like I got much more than I paid for. True, I spent hours and hours of time in class, listening to lectures, working with children, and viewing hundreds of #floortime videoclips. All of this resulted in what I’d hoped for- to get floortime more “in my bones.” But what I received was beyond my expectations- a beautiful gift, to see my child enjoy real friendship with all its richness of joy, laughter, creativity, and shared experience, a blessing from above, a bit of heaven. <3
