“This introduction to the Developmental, Individual Difference, Relationship-based model (DIR) is beautifully written, clearly presented and reader friendly. Dr. Tippy engages the reader from his first sentence as takes us on a journey into a variety of fascinating case studies of students who have benefitted from DIR intervention. An overview of the underpinnings of developmental approaches, and in particular, the DIR model, is presented through several studies. The text should prove useful to parents, practitioners, and graduate students in related fields. Case studies are presented to illustrate and highlight strategies to encourage development of functional abstract knowledge through the use of relationships. Insightful detailed reporting enables Dr. Tippy to demonstrate how DIR can empower children to connect and transfer information to broader higher levels. The studies illuminate successful strategies for working with children on the Developmental Spectrum — where children are respected and their thoughts and feelings valued. Methods advocated in this invaluable new text put back the joy in teaching and learning.” — Dianne Zager, Ph.D. Michael C. Koffler Professor in Autism Director, Center for Teaching & Research in Autism Pace University
