Why DIR®?

Profectum's parent education program and resources provide the tools parents need to have a meaningful relationship with your child. Diagnoses of Autism Spectrum Disorders, Sensory Processing Disorders, and other learning and developmental challenges can be difficult and even scary. The Profectum Developmental, Individual Difference, Relationship-based Model, developed by Drs. Stanley Greenspan and Serena Wieder, revolutionized the concept of development, and provides the foundation for lifelong learning and relating. Relating developmental capacities to the biological/neurological individual differences in sensory processing each person brings to the world, DIR® identifies relationships as the pivotal force that nurture and optimize development. DIR® can help you connect, learn to identify your child's strengths and challenges, and use play to enable development. With the Profectum Parent Toolbox and Progression App, you can learn to build a DIR® team, set realistic goals for your child, assess your child's individual profile, and track progress. Profectum means progress, for your child and you.
