Stanley I. Greenspan, 68, a child psychiatrist who wrote more than a dozen parenting books and developed the popular "floor time" method for reaching children with autism and other developmental disorders, died April 27 at Suburban Hospital in Bethesda of complications from a stroke.

In a career spanning 40 years, Dr. Greenspan drew praise for his early research on infant development and later found a wide following as an author and public speaker. At the time of his death, he was a professor at George Washington University's medical school.

In the 1970s, while working at the National Institute of Mental Health, he was at the forefront of a movement that saw human interactions and loving relationships as the foundation for a child's emotional and intellectual growth.
