TBRI® Empowering Principles with Dr. David Cross

The TBRI® Podcast | Season 1, Episode 4

Dr. David Cross is the co-founder and Rees-Jones Director of our Institute and also the co-creator of TBRI, so it was extra special to have him on the podcast. This episode is a great overview of the TBRI Empowering Principles. Dr. Cross gives a little history of the Empowering Principles and their place in TBRI, and touches on everything from self-regulation to meeting sensory needs, to transitions, and some of the newer developments of the TBRI Empowering Principles.
