I'm looking for some insight from anyone who's had experience with both DIR/Floortime and with ABA. We might be moving our son to a new school who uses DIR/Floortime but our Regional Center thinks it's not as effective or useful as ABA.
If you could live anywhere in Long Island for a preschool for a newly diagnosed 3 yr old autistic child where would you go (level 2; she is verbal, has a lot of social anxiety, SPD, separation anxiety and self-regulation is tough)?
Does anyone out there know of a Long Island preschool (special needs or otherwise) that uses the dloortime/DIR model or a mix of floortime/ABA? Does that exist?
Many thanks, we are new here and relocating to NY soon from Lima Peru.
I am trying to reconcile the lack of scientific evidence for floortime (vs aba for example) against the reality that it might work. What is people's experience with it? My son is 2 just diagnosed asd. Thanks :)
I've been searching all day for a provider that does floortime/DIR therapy by me and calling all these numbers but does seem like I have any luck. Does anyone out there know where to look for floortime therapy by riverside?
