How does Greenspan Floortime help children?


It strengthens processing abilities. Less overwhelmed and more tuned in, a child can improve relationships. It's easier to be good.


It draws children into an exciting, emotional world. Learning to communicate and interact with purpose, they can have impact on the world.


It is built on a renowned model of how we learn to think. It shores up a child's primary thinking skills. They can learn to think on their own.


Its basis is emotions. Emotions create the desire to interact because they create the desire to be close. Children can become related and engaged.
