DIR Method and Autism Ranking: Limited positive evidence


The DIR method was originally designed for infants, toddlers and preschoolers with developmental disorders including autism but it can also be used with a range of other children.  For example, according to The Interdisciplinary Council on Development and Learning website, accessed on 8 March 2016,   

“While the DIR model helps us understand and promote the positive development of all children, DIR and DIRFloortime are most commonly utilized with children with educational, social-emotional, mental health, and/or developmental challenges. DIRFloortime has become most widely known as an approach to support children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). “
