Affect Autism - Accept Reality?

 

Returning this week as our guest is Dr. Joshua Feder, a child and family psychiatrist in Solana Beach, California using the Developmental, Individual differences, Relationship-based (DIR) model. One of my biggest revelations from being a Floortime parent that I presented at the DIR/Floortime Conference in November was that parents ‘accept reality’. This week, Dr. Feder and I discuss why it is so important to emphasize that accepting reality is a process that parents need to be supported in, and the ways in which we can do this.
