Greenspan Social-Emotional™

Dr. Greenspan determined that it was our emotional health and relationships that drive our behavior, thinking and communication. Because so many professionals focus on surface behaviors and symptoms, never addressing the core components of a child’s emotional and cognitive health, he wanted to make his work available for all children. 

Our NEW Interactive Certification Program

The Greenspan Floortime Approach® understands that Speech and Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Educators and Mental Health Professionals all operate in different environments and have different challenges when integrating Greenspan Floortime into their work. 

Dr. Greenspan’s Story


Meet Dr. Stanley Greenspan

Over 40 years ago, child psychiatrist Dr. Stanley Greenspan recognized the importance of meeting children on their level—both developmentally and physically—in order to maximize communicating, interacting, and learning. This meant getting on the floor to engage the child’s attention.

Evidence-based Research

Floortime is an evidence-based intervention. Research demonstrates that it strengthens fundamental communication and relationship abilities for children with autism and other special needs. These improvements in the core deficits occur because of Floortime’s foundation in child development.
