Collin is still recovering from illness but was still able to muster singing Lady Gaga somehow during our “floor time” the other night. I’m pretty new at this parenting thing but I’ve loved learning about floor time, which is a critique of traditional forms of behavior therapy (ABA) where you are trying to direct the child to “behave” a certain way. I have a lot to say about ABA but will save that for another post. The basic concept of floor time is get to the child’s level and talk to them, ask questions, and take their lead. I’ve learned so much this way and he has learned so much as well. When the time is right and the trust is built you can “re-direct” to another activity or topic.
