Presenters: Michele Havens, EdD; Faith Condon Thayer, PhD, LPC, LCAT, ATR-BC

This presentation will focus on two interventions, an interactive Floortime approach and Creative Arts therapy. The integrated use of creative and developmental interventions was critical to the development of the Imagine Academy curriculum, particularly due to the complex challenges of students, their anxieties and need to increase self-confidence. Together they could address core components of ASD, including: motor planning and sequencing, executive functioning, developing relationships, capacity for empathy, and affective reciprocity. The principles of creative arts therapy and Floortime will be discussed, followed by techniques to incorporate both into a learning environment in one-to-one situations and group experiences for students across ages and developmental levels. We will provide guidelines for using this intervention in other programs.
