Kuhl Therapies is an innovative clinic in Crofton, Maryland that specializes in pediatric evaluation and treatment.
Kuhl Therapies provides a unique approach to therapy with a focus on the whole child and the needs of the family. Our goal is for each individual and their family to discover the positive new possibilities that a holistic and creative approach can facilitate. Through strong individualized relationships with our clients (including caregivers), we provide personalized services that allow each client to reach his or her full potential and enable lasting change.
Everyone at Kuhl Therapies is trained in DIR Floortime. DIR Floortime stands for Developmental, Individual-differences, and Relationship based model. DIR Floortime is an approach used for children with autism, and children with developmental and emotional challenges.
The philosophy is that “the esssence of motivation is finding out what the natural interest of the child is; what they like they do”. It is about helping every child positively develop and reach their fullest potential. To do this, DIR Floortime sees each child as more than just behaviors that need to be controlled, suppressed or changed. Instead, DIR Floortime engages with the child and works to understand their individual differences. Through relationship, DIR Floortime, challenges each child to engage in the world around them to the fullest manner possible for them.
