Success with Floortime

Some of you will undoubtedly have heard of Floortime Therapy as a treatment for autism. For those who have not, it is a child-centered approach that utilizes interactive play to develop social and emotional skills. I only mention it because it has helped our son Conner tremendously. It appealed to us initially because it was something we could learn to implement ourselves as parents. We are not wealthy people so 40 hours of ABA per week was out of the question.

We are The NeoTypicals

Hello Fellow Bloggers! Can't wait for this to explode! We are waiting in eager anticipation of all the information, tips, stories, and testimonials that are forthcoming! Our son Conner has made great strides since his diagnosis of PDD-NOS at age 3. He is shy, but bravely talks to strangers sometimes. He does well with his school work(home-schooled) though often seems confused in social situations. He likes video games and Spongebob, Crazy 8s, Spiderman and playing with his dog, Obi Wan.
