The heart of SPOTlight Trust SA is community involvement

The driving force behind all the training, information and resources, is the prospect of taking therapy to the communities that would otherwise not have access. All proceeds from memberships or support plans go towards building opportunities to take DIR into our communities.

The heart of SPOTlight Trust SA is community involvement. The driving force behind the training, information and resources, is -

  • To share the understanding and awareness of the DIR Floortime model of intervention to professionals, families and schools within and around South Africa.

  • To Introduce this developmental, relationship-based model as an option for working with children with relating and communication challenges as well as those on the Autism Spectrum.




In order to support those in under resourced areas who do not have the financial means to attend paid workshops, our goal is to use profits and raise funds to create sponsorship on a variety of levels of training.


  • Level 1: The Introductory 14 hour workshop currently offers sponsored training for practitioners, parents, teachers or facilitators who work with families and children with special needs. Our intention is for sponsored attendees to share this knowledge and pay it forward within their communities. To date we have had 4 sponsored attendees over the past 2 years.


  • Level 2: Supplement the cost of a half-day or a one-day school/parent workshop.

  • Level 3: Sponsorship (full or partial) of a professional or teacher to enroll in Profectum Academy’s Professionals Certificate or Administrator’s Certificate.
