Floor Time-play Therapy

Floor time-play therapy is one of the most famous play therapies to treat children with ASD, discovered by Wieder and Greenspan in 1980.

It can be done at home and in the therapist's office, in a calm environment for a session between two to five hours. It can be provided by child psychologists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, special education teachers, parents, or caregivers with adequate training.

Floor time play can help the child to improve different critical developmental milestones. It provides him with two-way communication that may progress to more complex communication. It helps him to develop inspirational ideas and emotional thinking, which enables him to enjoy intimacy and engage in relationships. Ultimately, it helps the child improve his self-regulation, enhance emotional and intellectual growth, and empower his interest in the world.
