On April 27, 2010 Dr. Stanley Greenspan, pioneer of DIR/Floortime model, passed away.  His long time work with autistic children and families provides a much beloved foundation among clinicians and parents alike.

From our own Dr. Esther Hess:

“It is with the greatest sorrow that I learned of the passing of Dr. Stanley Greenspan last evening. He was both a colleague, a mentor and above all else, a friend. His contribution to the world of children is invaluable. He will be greatly missed.
