The Floortime approach to teaching an autistic child is one way to incorporate the correct use of toys into everyday learning opportunities.
Services for treating autism typically include applied behavioral analysis (ABA), play therapy like Floortime, sensory integration as well as other therapies and interventions determined by the child's treatment plan.
Floortime in the classroom focuses on social play for preschool and kindergarten students.
Established autism treatments, such as applied behavior analysis, Floortime play therapy or augmentive and alternative communication, have long track records and scientific research to support them.
Floortime and RDI are two popular play therapy approaches for autism spectrum disorders.
