The Floortime Center® is the only Greenspan Floortime clinic in the world—now multi-site—that fully integrates Dr. Greenspan's version of his Learning Tree (DIR®) Model and uses The Greenspan Floortime Approach® across all Therapeutic Curriculums. Dr. Greenspan always envisioned a facility that fully integrated his philosophy and techniques into all facets of their programs. It wasn’t until the start of The Floortime Center® that his vision became reality.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Dyan Spruill, The Floortime Center’s head Speech and Language Pathologist, will discuss how she integrates Greenspan Floortime principles and Learning Tree goals into her speech therapy sessions to habilitate comprehensive communication abilities.

  • John Balsley, The Floortime Center’s Visuo-Cognitive Therapist and a direct trainee of Dr. Harry Wachs, will describe Dr. Wachs’s Visuo-Cognitive Therapy and how it is an essential piece of a child’s program to improve sensory integration, visual processing, attention, motor coordination, and emotional regulation.

  • Jiselle and Dyan, the multidisciplinary Foodtime™ therapy team at The Floortime Center, will additionally present an important and informative lecture on feeding challenges.
