At Hirsch, we know that all children want to belong, they want to be accepted and to have friends.
We also know that every child wants to learn and can learn.
What we want to know is why a child isn¡¯t learning.
So we find out.
Then we do the most important thing¡ª-support the student right now.
We meet the child, where they are.
We know that they want to succeed but that something is in the way.
Hirsch¡¯s approach is based on the DIR Floortime model interwoven with OT and sensory integration principles.
The DIR Floortime model provides a developmental framework of six stages which all children must master for social and emotional success.
The model also offers an understanding of individual processing differences that affect a child¡¯s ability to manage and master these six developmental levels.
Always though, the approach is rooted in the relationship between the child and the supporting adult.
