Invest Wisely: The Emotional Foundations For Learning - For Life

A DIR®/Floortime™ Workshop for Parents & Professionals

Presented by Serena Wieder, Ph.D.
Sponsored by
Arts for Healing in conjunction with  Family First Early Intervention Project

This workshop is underwritten by a grant from the New Canaan Community Foundation and is free and open to the public.


All families need a roadmap to help their children, develop the foundations necessary for learning and realizing their best potential for life. Social, emotional, language, and cognitive capacities are all learned through interactive relationships that involve emotional interchanges which help children learn to read and respond to emotional and social signals that enable them to organize their behavior, mood and impulses, and become logical and abstract thinkers. Children on the Autism Spectrum need the very same roadmap to develop the foundation which will support and sustain a fundamental sense of relatedness which includes warmth and security, regulation, engagement, emotional signaling and gesturing,shared social problem solving, the use of ideas in a meaningful and functional way and logical thinking and reasoning. Dr. Wieder will present the DIR® Model with special focus on emotional development and symbolic thinking.

1. Participants will learn the six building blocks (developmental capacities) which provide the foundation for learning and relating and how affect based interactions help children develop
2. Participants will learn how individual differences impact on development and intersect each other as a result of poor interconnectivity in the brain.
3. Participants will learn how symbols and symbolic play reflect emotional development and self-regulation
