We believe RDI® is the most effective ASD treatment available today.
RDI® is a parent programme. It provides the foundations required for your child to have genuine friendships & relationships, reciprocal communication, independent living, and meaningful employment.
RDI® focuses on training parents on how to connect with and guide their child to seek out and succeed in truly reciprocal relationships, while addressing key executive-function issues such as motivation, communication, emotional regulation, episodic memory, rapid attention-shifting, self-awareness, appraisal, executive functioning, flexible thinking and creative problem solving.
Ultimately, RDI® helps your child to become a Thinker!
RDI® is a parent-based approach to ASD and neurodevelopmental disability treatment that is based on the latest scientific research into the human brain. All brains, whether neurotypical or autistic, can adapt and learn to function in a “new” way because the brain is capable of adapting to any challenge; It just needs the right guidance! However, the brain will only grow and adapt if it is challenged to do so. RDI® teaches parents to provide these challenges through the Guiding Relationship.
This allows for neuro-cognitive changes to occur over time that provide the individual with the skills needed to navigate life’s challenges on their own.
