Why Am I So Excited About RDI And Autism Remediation?

Do you have a child with autism? Learn how to guide your child’s brain development while learning Relationship Development Intervention(RDI).

Relationship Development Intervention (RDI) is about building relationships but it is so much more. RDI is based on typical development and it is a way to "re-do" milestones kids on the spectrum missed due to autism getting in the way. How is this done? 

RDI Consultants evaluate each child to see where they are developmentally, what foundations they may have missed, evaluate the parent-child feedback system and determine what unique supports each child needs to learn and develop to their fullest potential. 

Challenging situations are set up to stimulate thinking and brain development. The challenge may be as simple as, how hard must I throw this ball to knock down the tower, to exploring and experimenting with how two things can be different and still be the same. 

For a long time, it was believed that as we aged, the connections in the brain became fixed. Current Neuroscience confirms that our brains do not stop having the ability to grow and develop neural integration and pathways. 

Our kids have the potential to learn so much more than rote skills and behaviors, they have the ability to become independent, flexible, problem solvers and true dynamic thinkers! Now that's exciting!
