What Is 'Floor-Time Therapy'?

Question: What is "Floor-time therapy"?

Answer: "Floor-time therapy" is a term that refers to an intervention for children with autism that was developed by Dr. Stanley Greenspan. This approach generally addresses autistic disorder as a sensory processing disorder. An individual therapist is assigned to work with a child one-on-one. And this therapist tends to follow the child's lead trying to draw them into interactions. It's generally an adjunctive therapy in that the child will also attend a pre-school or speech therapy and other therapies in addition to "floor-time therapy."
