The Developmental, Individual Difference, Relationship-based (DIR) Model is a framework and model that helps clinicians, parents and educators conduct a comprehensive assessment and develop an intervention program tailored to the unique challenges and strengths of children with developmental and neurodevelopmental challenges, e.g., autism spectrum disorder. The objectives of the DIRFloortime Model are to build healthy foundations for social, emotional, and intellectual capacities rather than focusing solely on discrete skills and isolated behaviors.
