Gil Tippy PhotoFriday April 7, 2017: One-Day Conference
@ The NYC Seminar & Conference Center

What are the essential components to promote a student’s thinking, relating, and communicating? During this one day conference, participants will understand how Floortime™ and the DIR® model can be used with students across all ages to foster engagement and higher level thinking. Interdisciplinary breakout sessions will target areas such as attunement, sensory processing, communication, and relationships both within the school and at home. Presenters from the Rebecca School will show how following a student’s interest can both build a strong relationship and accomplish discipline specific goals. This conference is open to professionals and parents both new to Floortime™ and experienced practitioners.

Thursday April 6, 2017: Special Pre-Conference DIR® 101 Workshop
@ The Rebecca School
Attend both April 6th and 7th to complete the offical DIR® 101 course entitled "An Introduction to DIR® and DIRFloortime®."  This is an introductory course that reviews the theoretical framework, scientific evidence, and scope of application of the DIR® model promoting functional emotional developmental capacities, reflective thinking, and overall mental health for all children and adults, including those with special needs. Completion of this course allows participants to then enter the official DIRFloortime® professional certificate program.  Participants in this track must attend both days, all general sessions on April 7th, and specifically assigned breakout sessions on April 7th to fully complete the DIR® 101 requirements.  This is a great course for parents and professionals alike!

Cancellations/Refunds/Payment Information for Courses (such as DIR 101, 201, 202, 203, 204, 210, etc)

Please be aware that if you have selected to only pay a deposit at registration, your final payment must be received no later than 1/2 way through your course.  For example, for a 14 week course that meets weekly, final payment is due on the date of your 7th weekly class.  You will not receive your Certificate of Attendance until your final payment is received, potentially making you ineligible to receive Continuing Education Credits (CEs or CEUs) for your course.  In addition, if your payment is not received within 15 days of you due date, an additional $50 processing fee will be charged.

Some courses may have course specific payment, cancellation, and refund policies.  So, please read your course registration page for class-specific cancellation/refund policies.  Unless otherwise noted in course-specific registration materials, the policies are the same as listed below for other DIRFloortime courses.

The individual registration fee for each class includes a non-refundable processing fee of $50.  All cancellations must be made online through Mylo or by e-mailing dirfloortimetraining@icdl.com at least 15 days prior to the first day of class to qualify for a full refund (less the $50 processing fee).  Cancellations after that period and before the class begins are eligible for a 50 percent refund (less the processing fee).  No refunds will be issued once the class has begun.  Class change requests are considered a cancelaltion and re-registration.
