Floortime or the D.I.R. (Developmental, Individual, Relationship-Based) Model is a technique that helps children learn language and social skills in a more related and logical way than traditional language therapy. Traditional language therapy typically promotes specific skills (vocabulary, grammar, etc.) that may leave a child with rote responses.
