Linking DIR/Floortime with Narrative and Expressive Arts Approaches

As a therapist who works primarily with children and young adults with ASD and sensory processing differences, I believe that it is important not to limit story-telling to what is expressed verbally. Taking into account the child’s individual differences is essential when it comes to engagement and communication, and some children communicate more readily through song, while jumping, dancing or swinging, or by using toys in symbolic play.
