The developmental therapy DIR/Floortime (Developmental Individual-Difference, Relationship-Based Floortime model) uses a parent-child relationship to entice autistic children out of their private worlds and into an environment where they desire to interact with others.
During play therapy, both verbal and nonverbal autistic children communicate well. Therapeutic play differs from regular play. The process also involves the parents, who learn how to use the techniques at home.
Individuals with autism benefit from social skills training and therapies, and do exceptionally well when self-motivated to improve. Like all behavior analysis programs, a social skills teacher begins with observation and assessment.
Speech and language therapy goes beyond articulation and seeks to teach autistic children that communicating is a worthwhile activity. The benefits that come from better communication will help a child in all areas of his life.
